The powder brush is nice and tapered for swirling on powder under the eyes, around the nose, the plain of your forehead, the contour of the chin...the blush brush is only for the cheek. Though I suppose it could also be used for powder, bronzer and highlighting, it is PERFECT for blush. For me, the application is quick and easy and gives me exactly the results I'm looking for, so I appreciate having both. I try to take good care of my brushes so I think it will last a last a long time (at least 5-10 years) and be a good investment. Hope this helps.

In a pinch, you can use a powder brush to apply blush as long as the head is not too big.
I work with cosmetics and from personal experience I used to have only one brush for bronzing, blush, and foundation powder. However, now I have a brush for each specific use. You don't want to mix the colors of your blush and your foundation powder. Also, the foundation powder blush covers more surface area which can overdo the amount of blush applied on your cheeks. I recommend that you have different brushes for different usages. It really does make a difference with your make-up routine. Also, what ever you apply on your face will be true to the color of the product if you don't mix your products with the same brush.
