This is perfect for smudging liner or shadow. I like the precision of the brush to get the perfect blend. And you can't beat the price!
This brush works well for middle school drama students learning how to apply eye shadow. I've ordered a bunch of these and I'll order again!
By just looking at it, I did think this was a bristled brush...but that's ok, I've never tried using a sponge type brush like this- maybe I'll love it. The sponge is more hard that spongey. It reminds me of hard earplugs. But I haven't tried it yet, not sure when I'll have a use for it. But it's nice to have handy.
