I really wanted to try white Canadian squirrel and I didn’t get the powder brush because I wasn’t sure how worth-it it would be, and now I am really regretting it! This is the most amazing brush I have ever used! The white Canadian squirrel hair feels fundamentally different from the popular grey/blue variety. It is absolutely the softest brush that I own, a significant degree softer than grey/blue squirrel and red Canadian squirrel, which is the least soft, in my opinion. However, even though it is phenomenally soft, unlike grey/blue squirrel, this white Canadian squirrel doesn’t feel quite so delicate, on the contrary, it feels resilient. The hairs have great spring or snap-back, almost like silver fox or sable (comparing it to my finer W&N watercolor brushes as I don’t have a makeup brush of sable, but it’s the closest I could think of to describe the flexible springiness). Because of this, you get the absolute pleasure of ultimate softness without sacrificing good pick-up and powder application. The blush brush is a great size, it is the right shape and density to be very multifunctional. It works great for blush and powder under the eyes; it’s also the perfect brush for highlight, and could work for targeted contour. However, my favorite type of brushes are powder brushes, since you really get to appreciate a type of hair more when the brush is bigger, and I think this would be a great type of hair to use for face powder, etc.
