So pretty and soft
I was so excited when I saw this brush because it is just so so so adorable. The bristles are very soft. It is marketed as a contouring brush but I find the shape makes it better for blush or highlight. I prefer a smaller brush with more a sharp angle for contouring. It is a pretty addition to my brush collection though. The other thing that I don’t love about it is that the gold handle chips off quite easily
Try it for blush rather than contouring

I received this as a present from my friends, who knew about my obsession with contouring.
First of all, can I just say how gorgeous this brush is? I love the handle (a gold handle!!) which makes it so easy to hold, and I love the shape of the bristles. The handle is especially great because the previous brush that I was using had a really slim handle which made it difficult to grip and use. This handle is the perfect thickness and length for easy gripping and application of product.
I use this brush for contouring as well as applying blush. The bristles are amazing soft, and they do a great job of picking up sufficient product to be applied. Some brushes are really tricky to use because product just falls off the bristles, but this is not the case for this brush. I love the fact that the bristles are so soft, making it a pleasure to use.
I love this brush very much and am thankful that I received this as a gift, because on its own, it is a little pricey for brushes. Perhaps you can consider getting this as a treat for yourself - you won't regret it!

Soft and luxurious
The bristles on this brush are amazingly soft and apply product flawlessly, especially bronzer. It quickly became one of my favourite brushes. I find it works best for either bronzing, because of the shape of the brush, it's perfect for warming up the perimeter of your face. The shape of the bristles make it great for contouring in particular, as it isn't too large or too thin at the head of the brush, it's the perfect size for cheek bones. Be careful when picking up product as it picks up a lot so use a very gentle hand.

SO SOFT - Just gorgeous.
I've used stacks of different brushes and will never use anything I don't like so that means the brush has to be soft. This is as soft as it gets - it's just glorious!! It's also one of the prettiest looking brushes I've seen too. It has a lovely gold handle that is very easy to hold with a great width to the handle. The beautiful softness has to be experienced to be believed - and it looks so pretty too! The brush is a blend of green turquoise and black. This almost sounds like a love story but I love really nice brushes and this is as beautiful as I've had.
I prefer a really soft and natural look for my blush application and this gives exactly what I want. I have had very little experience with Benefit products but will be looking at other brushes having "discovered" this gem.
Try it out with any powders, especially blushes.

The softest most amazing thing ever!
This brush has instantly become my absolute favourite make up brush. The bristles are so incredibly soft and fluffy and it picks up product so easily.
I have used this for a couple of different products now, but I find it works best for either highlighting or bronzing, because of the shape of the brush. The shape of the bristles make it great for contouring in particular, as it isn't too large or too thin at the head of the brush, it's the perfect size for cheek bones. When you go to pick up product on the brush, use a gentle hand, this brush will honestly pick up soooo much product (especially if you're using the Hoola bronzer, you will end up with a huge orange splodge on your cheek if you are not careful). You then just lightly brush it along your cheek bones, or wherever you are looking to apply the product.
The only negative about this brush would be that it is hard to blend with. The bristles are quite light and airy, so while its easy to pick up and apply product, it is challenging to blend. I find that I need to use another brush to blend in if I end up with too much product on my face.
But honestly, it's so soft to touch, I couldn't stop just brushing it over my face and hands when I first got it (don't judge till you try, once you feel it you will understand!)
Light hand!! You won't need much product and you won't need to push too hard with the brush, just let it do all the work for you.
Anyone who wants to feel the softest make up brush?
