It provides a contoured application, good application of product in terms of pigment, but the edges aren't blended. I tried to blend out the bottom edge w/ the brush & ended up settling w/ blending with my finger. The top of this brush is sort of flat, but I think if it were a more rounded cut across the top, it could actually blend. I will likely return this. If it were cheap I might not bother to return, but for this price, I have brushes I like better.
