This is my all-time favorite foundation brush! I know many people gag at the price tag, but I think that it is fairly mid-range. Only brush I use to apply foundation now, it's so dense, soft, and doesn't soak up too much product. Stippling and then buffing in the foundation and I get the perfect finish. I've already purchased a 2nd one so I can rotate as I clean them and also one for my best friend because I can't have her using anything but the best!
