This brush is the first full size brush that I have. Till now I have been using the Chanel mini's set, which also has an angled powder brush, but I use this one for applying blush.
The packaging is really nice. It comes in the black and gold box, with a useful picture on the back of what the brush looks like.
It is in a black velvet pouch, which is really useful for travelling.
The brush itself is really nice, it is soft but dense so that the product applies very well. So far I have not had any streaks or blotches. :) It is also made of 100% natural hair. The angled/ flat shape is perfect for contouring as it fits perfectly in the hollow of my cheeks.
This brush is best used for layering as it does not hold a lot of product in one go. This I see as an advantage because the product would not look cakey on the face.
Unlike the old Chanel brushes, the wooden handle is matte black, with embossed silver lettering. This gives it a nice sofisticated look. It also has the #2 on it, which the older ones also didn't have. This makes it much easier to identitfy the brushes.
What I don't like is that it sheds. This may be because I just got the brush and some of the hairs weren't properly attached or something. I hope it stops shedding soon!
Update: It stopped shedding! :D
I got mine for 51 euros on debijenkorf.nl (Netherlands). Other countries should check out chanel.com.
