The Coastal Scents Classic Buffer Small Synthetic Brush is a buffing brush made from black synthetic bristles. Unlike many buffing brushes, this brush is cut to have a rounder tip, instead of straight across the top.
This brush is a very similar shape to the Sigma F05 Small Contour brush. The Coastal Scents Classic Buffer Small Synthetic brush is bigger and more dense, but still a very comparable shape. Coastal Scents has the brushes dimensions listed on their website and are as follows: Bristles : 1.22" (3.1 cm), Ferrule : 1.93" (4.9 cm) & Handle : 4.84" (12.3 cm). The brush has very soft bristles and so far I haven't experienced any bristles splaying or shedding. Coastal Scents says to use this brush to buff and blend foundation, blush or bronzer. I find that the brush does work with liquid or cream foundations and concealers, but since the bristles aren't super dense (like the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush), it takes extra time and pressure to blend in the product. My favorite way to use this brush is with powder blush. Its small shape allows precise application on the cheeks and the bristles pick up just enough product. I find the brush to be a bit large for bronzer, but it may work for other people.
