I have been putting these two brushes to the test for the past year and while I do think one is better, I personally don’t prefer to use either for blush application. I always feel like no matter how lightly I try to apply blush, they both disturb the foundation underneath. I initially wanted to try these brushes out to see if they more easily diffused my more pigmented blushes, but I’ve found that I just don’t like this style of brush. Despite my personal preference, they do apply blush nicely and with more pigmented blushes I do think they diffuse the pigment more easily than a traditional blush brush. If I wasn’t attempting to review these items, I’m really not sure if I would have noticed my foundation having less coverage on the cheeks after applying.
