Pros: Great quality bristles, perfect firmness for blending, and it never sheds
Cons: Due to the color of the bristles they can stain.
I was lucky and purchased this at the CCO. I use this brush always when putting on shadow. I really wouldn't mind having a second or a third as it can be used for applying concealer to blemishes. If you want to start a MAC brush collection, this one is a necessity.
