OH YES! Its large enough to cover more area, therefore you can buff in a flash. Its tapered so it can get into small spaces. Blends makeup flawlessly!

I wouldn't use this as I would a kabuki brush - it's too large and the bristles too stiff - not quite soft enough. I would use this more for stippling foundation/powder into the skin.
As for kabuki recs, there are several that are good, but one of my favorites is Japonesque, both their long handled and short kabuki brushes. Their very dense, soft and wonderful to work with.

I think the answer would also depend on what you want to use it for. For mineral makeup, I personally LOVE my Mineral Foundation Brush from The Body Shop (it really is a kabuki). It's luxurious, irresistibly soft, and feels like VELVET. However, this botan brush is great for LIQUID foundation application (IMO). It dispenses the foundation soooo evenly, it makes my foundation melt right into my skin. I look like I have near to no makeup. The Botan is also great for buffing blush when you're accidentally heavy-handed. Hope this helps.

MAC makes a great buffer brush and it's much cheaper.
