In terms of size it's more or less the same length as the RT Buffing Brush and easy to hold. I can't stand brushes with really long handles so this size is great for me and they're easier to pack away when going on holiday. The bristles are synthetic, very soft and easy to clean (I use Dr Bronner's Liquid Soap) even though the bristles are soft they don't bend like crazy as they're so densely packed but there's still a bit of movement and because the top is domed, it's easy to get into places like the corners of the nose. I haven't had any problems with shedding and the brush retains it's shape well after washing.
If you're like me and don't live anywhere near the magical land of Sephora, i feel your pain. If you know anyone who will be going on holiday to America, France or any other Sephpora-fied countries I really recommend getting them to pick one up for you. As you've probably already guessed, Lina got it for me.
Do you own this brush?
