It's a high quality brush in terms of bristles, and the handle is short, sturdy, and comfortable. But, something about this brush just wasn't right. I'm not sure if it was the angle or the length of the bristles, but I could never get it to place the product where I wanted, and it wasn't quite right for blending, either. Yet, it seemed the perfect balance of stiffness and fluffiness. To make it useable, I literally took matters into my own hands and gave it a bit of a haircut, getting rid of the angle. Mission accomplished! It's now the perfect crease brush for my eyelids.
