This is a very firm brush. Its better for patting shadow on rather than shading or smearing. Its a little rough in my opinion if you use it for anything more than patting the shadow on.
Nice brush, unique for me as I dont have anything like it. I think the description says tightly tapered dome, and it is kind of a stiff brush. I find it useful to apply eye shadow to small areas and also to blend stubborn eye shadow, although Im not sure if thats the intended use.
