I love this brush. It is soft and dense but the bristles are evenly distributed so it’s not dense. I use this for all over powder, to diffuse my blush and bronzer if I need to, works great at removing powder from under the eyes too if you pinch the bristles. I have washed it twice and it hasn’t lost its shape and bristles haven’t fallen out. The handle is a nice thickness and has some weight to it so it’s easy to hold and has control. Great quality for a great price.
