SEPHORA COLLECTION Classic The Complexion Brush #53

What it is:This brush expertly sweeps all types of powders—pressed, loose, translucent, blush, or bronzer—across the entire face and sculpts features beautifully.What it does:While the domed top applies color evenly, the tapered, chisled head is designed to fit the contours and crevices of your face for when you need more control. It's your all around go-to for dusting, sweeping, and setting. Made of goat hair, its bristles are coarse and thick to easily control how much pigment is applied.

I wouldn't say it sheds a lot, but it has been shedding small little hairs. I'm hoping that stops once I use it a little longer.

None so far, make sure with this brush or any other brush not to smush or bend back the bristles against the bristle clamp, this will cause shedding.
