This brush is quite slim to me, I feel that it will work better as a contour brush to carve out your cheek bones, rather than as a blush brush. However. of course you can still make it work. I like to place my blush with the brush horizontally on my cheeks first on where i want the majority of the product to be, then later hold the brush vertically to make a smooth even blend across my cheeks. Very good quality brush, feels soft and softness doesn't change after washing it, also no shedding, Overall happy buy because it's a brush with more than one uses.
