You don't have to match the exact same brand of tools as you do makeup. If you are happy with the one you have it will work fine. On the other hand, I do own two brushes because I am fanatic about not using the same brush for blush right after I apply foundation So if you are too. . . .;-)
btw I personally prefer the Sephora brand brush to this one. It feels softer and sheds less.

I would say no, if you own one that you are happy with, save your $40.00 for something you really need. I use a lot of MUFE products and I use Mac, Smashbox and Sephora brushes. I am happy with the application I get from other high quality brushes. When you need to replace a brush, try the MUFE brush, they are good but not a must for applications.

No I wouldn't. This is a great brush but it's just a stippling brush so since you already have one I wouldn't spend your money on this.

I don't think you do! But compare the size of this brush to your stippling brush and see if there's a noticeable difference. I found this brush too big to use as a blush brush and use it for foundation instead, which works really really well.

Not at all, you can use your brush. But I like to have 2, one for liquid and one for powders ; )

I would think that a good stippling brush would work. Just make sure the end isn't too "blunt".

No, you don't need to use the specific MUFE-brand stipplling brush (a.k.a. a "skunk brush"), though some sales people might insist you should b/c they don't know any better (that's the kindest interpretation of their M.O., anyway, so I'll stick to that one!). The REAL Bottom line? Answer: (1) A good stippling brush is a good stippling brush no matter who makes it, & as long as the quality is high, they are totally interchangeable: take it from one who's tried many & speaks from long experience. (2) There are different sizes to be had, but even this is really a matter of personal preference, so don't let anyone tell you any differently. (3) Besides those sold by the middle-&-higher-end [economically speaking] cosmetic companies, there are ALSO now excellent versions sold online by others, just 1 example being the Asian-American male M.A. who's garnered so many followers on Youtube that, as a result, in 2009-'10 he's opened his own online sales site, & his insistence upon highest quality at far lower prices is netting him a huge number of grateful converts! SO: you have a whole host of different sources from which to buy an excellent stippling brush that doesn't have to cost an arm & a leg for such a simple tool: look around & choose what seems best. Sometimes reading a variety of cosmetic review sites [ i.e., at least 2 or 3 different ones] helps in making that choice, too. Good luck: I hope this helps!
