Love this for contouring

I like this for contouring. It lets you draw a solid-well pigmented lane with crime or powder then you can buff it in. I do it right under my cheekbones from above my ear to the middle of my pupil. I use a fluffier brush to blend it with blush that runs from the apples of my cheeks up. It’s pretty firm and does a good job laying on color as well as buffing.

Excellent for buffing and contouring !!!

I mostly use this for buffing around my nose. It's soft but dense at the same time... Love all Z series!

small brush that packs a lot!

at first I stay away from flat top brushes. but when i learned the natural and seamless effect a flat top brush makes, i gave this a try. actually what i want is the sonia g face one but after reading from sonia g's blog that face one will be hard to restock. i thought ill settle for anything that is natural haired flat top. I have plump face that made me lean on resolving it by contouring. I had sonia g's sculpt two but using it sideways(flat) to diffuse or blend the shade, the short hair on the side are poking my face hard. This Z-3 is tiny, that will fit right on the side of my small nose. But It picks up, as in picks up tons of my marc jacobs tantric and even my burberry blush (earthy and dark earthy = hard pressed blush). This is the contour brush to use if you are really working on your contour BUT not when you need to rush out in a minute. I even use this as eyeshadow brush for blending. I used wayne goss 16 for blending although its also soft, its scratching my extra sensitive eyelid. if you have doubts on the blendability of a flat top, try this z-3, for a nice experience may be it will change your mind. Since it is small, you are not limited to cheek contouring alone, nose, eyes, and even spreading out pat mcgrath's under eye powder is a breeze, really one swipe only.
