Good for the occasional use
I picked up the Glam By Manicare fan brush for applying highlighter. The first thing I noticed was the handle is actually very long which is good for dusting across the cheekbones but can be a bit difficult for the less experienced person like me.
The brush hairs are probable not as dense as I’d like, I had to apply multiple times to get very little distribution or I’d have to hold the hairs together for it to be more effective.
As someone who wears makeup a few times a year I can mak it work, but if I were a daily user I’d be looking for another brush.

Not dense enough
I picked this brush up when it was half price online. I'd been looking for a fan brush to apply my highlighter and unfortunately I'm still on the hunt.
I found that this brush had 2 issues. The first was that the brush hairs are too long and that makes applying and blending the product onto the skin really difficult, particularly as the brush hairs are quite soft. I tried with a highlighter and it didn't pick up much product to apply onto the skin.
The second issue I had with the brush was that it was too sparse in terms of brush hairs. Had the brush head been more dense and therefore more structured, it would be able to pick up and apply product more easily, as well as blending it out properly.
I think the brush may work well when applying some body shimmer or highlight to the chest and shoulders but for the face, it just didn't work for me.
