I like this brush.. Just not for what it's intended for.


Hmm..
Well, this is the Angled Contour Eyeshadow Brush by mark. that I just got recently and have been playing around with.


You should be able to "create depth and definition with this angled brush that deposits and blends color into the crease easily and expertly", but I prefer to use it two other ways..

I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but this brush is kind of.. large. It has a thick and somewhat weighty handle as well as a big head of bristles. The size of the handle is something I'm definitely not used to when it comes to eye brushes.


Anyway, for use in the crease I'm not sure I really like this brush. Personally, I find it too big and almost a bit awkward to use in the crease.. especially for everyday looks. It's also not as soft as I'd like an eye brush to be, but it's not so coarse that it's uncomfortable either. I may try using it in my crease again some day but for now I'm really not feeling it.

So, I'm not a big fan of it for it's intended use but what do I like it for? First of all, I think it's a great brush to highlight the browbone with! For that, I think it's a very nice size. I've been using it a lot lately for my highlight. And the other use I like it for is for contouring my nose. My nose is kind of big (more so in photos, haha) so I like to slim it down with contouring from time to time. I find that this brush fits really nicely into the contours of my nose and does a good job blending so I don't get that muddy look.

Now do I think it was worth $10? Nah, not really.. I've been searching for a good crease brush for a while but this isn't it. My journey for my perfect crease brush shall continue.

  1. I have a similar brush from ELF and all I use it for is highlighting my brow bone. My favorite crease brush is a Mary Kay eye crease brush but I don't think they make it any more. I also like the Sigma E25 and E40 for the crease!

  3. i have a similar brush from bobbi brown, and i use it for my browbone as well. the shape of it is perfect for it, and it's also good for blending out harsh lines between that color and whatever's in your crease. i love it.

  4. wowza that is pretty expensive for one brush! I would suggest ecotools set. it's a whole set (with a crease brush) for around that amount :) Very soft bristles and it's what i use too :P keep in touch!
