Of the set of ten I tried, this one surprised me the most. I use a natural hair (gray squirrel) cheek brush normally, which I love for the very sheer amount of product it applies. My expectations were pretty grounded, as I am partial to natural hair. It was such a lovely surprise to find the Pro Blush 96 gave my skin a soft flush with little effort. I found myself beginning to reach for this more and more often, as it consistently gave me great results. The taper of the bristles is somewhat steeply-domed, which I think lends to such a natural finish. For someone who is committed to vegan brushes and favors a soft ‘look,’ this is an excellent choice.
