If this brush is truly $15 in the US then I am buying 2 more of them because they are just over $50 in Canada (as of summer 2013)! But this is a darned good, multi-purpose brush - great for applying liquid foundations and getting into every nook and cranny because of the small size. It's small size also makes it ideal for applying highlighter in a controlled manner so you get it just where you want it. It's perfect for buffing out powder blush to get a truly natural flush of colour. I even like it for doing a final blending of the edges of my eye shadow. If this weren't s pricey, I'd buy another one or two. If they really are only 15 bucks in the US (or even 20), I'm going to do just that next month!
