I hadn't really heard of the Royal & Langnickel brand before but I got a few brushes through the Boxycharm subscription. I was impressed with the brushes and noticed vloggers using this particular highlight brush. I have been using a natural bristle highlighting brush which is good, but it doesn't really give the intense glow I sometimes want. I decided to order this brush and it is great for giving that pronounced highlight. It applies product evenly and smoothly. Quality is good and the bristles are soft. The purple is pretty, although I would have preferred the more muted look of the Moda Pro brushes I received in my Boxycharm. I am definitely impressed with this brand.
