I purchased this silicone brush and a bristle brush to compare face mask applications. I was tired of feeling like I wasting product and also wanted something cleaner. It is it to use and the shape is perfect to get in small spots. Still preferred the bristle brush as it provided more even coverage. This brush would be perfect for mixing your own mask or for those mask that you want to goop on a little more. I attached a picture comparing the coverage of both brushes.
