I genreally use a sponge to blend my liquid/cream concealer so I use this to apply powder to set my undereye. This brush is a decent shape and size for this. I prefer ELF's small tapered brush for thi, but this one works well when the other is being cleaned. Washes well with no shedding. The ferrule and handle came apart on mine, but a little glue and it was like new again.
