I find that there is just a slight difference in the bristles between these smudge brushes. The bristles are softer in the black-handled brush, and a little more stiff in the silver professional platinum natural brush. The difference is very subtle - though I am partial to the stiffer brushes - they are easier to blend with for me. So, if you are looking to save money, go with the black-handled brush; but if you are worried about the slight difference in quality of bristles (with the silver-handled ones being better, in my opinion), then go with the silver-handled brush. Hope that helps!

The one I purchased and did not like had silver handles. My Sephora professional "ergonomic" brushes have black handles and I like them much better. However, I don't know if smudge brushes and liner brushes are available in the ergonomic series.
