I really wanted to like this brush when I went on my EDM craze, but that never happened.
I feel like you really pay for quality because this has to be one of the softest brushes there is. Also, it seems like it will last you a while because of the wooden handle and the actual build of it.
But I never used it and it never actually worked for me. I couldn't apply anything on my lids with this because it's too large. The softness should have been great for my undereye concealer application. But my biggest pet peeve is that this brush is too dense! Everytime I added a bit of powder concealer - it was way too much even with intense blending.
Overall, I gave it a lower rating because unlike every other reviewer I simply could not find a use for this brush.
I stumbled on these reviews and realized I have had this brush a looooong time - at least six years. I use it every single day. I use it for concealer under the eye, blending, all sorts of things - powder and liquid. I've never had a problem with it and I can't say anything negative about it. It is soft and I clean it regularly. Obviously it is holding up.
As an eyeshadow brush, I think this fails. But for applying concealer, this is my HG brush. It picks up mineral foundation/concealer and applies it easily around my nose, under my eyes and anywhere else that my foundation brush is too big to fit easily. It also results in thicker coverage, and I suspect it would be great at contouring (not something I do). I've bought one, and I have another in storage for when they (inevitably) discontinue it.
I got this brush more than 3 years ago... Its still going strong!! I apply mostly highlighter under browbone. Its so soft and so cheap. Didnt lose its shape, bristles are soft and it did never unglue- and Im not very careful about not letting water go in... :P
Such a cute Kabuki brush that works very well. I use this brush for eyeshadow and then set it with powder. Since using this brush my eye makeup looks polished and professional. Before i used to use my finger or even a q-tip to apply eyeshadows. It is small enough to add definition and blending to the eye area without smudging.
Product came within 2 days that I ordered it. Everyday Minerals also sells through Amazon (they sell SOME products). Product came in a small air bubble package and it was wrapped in brown paper, samples were also included. After I did the "finger pat" on my under eye concealer, I used this brush to blend it out, and it blended the concealer nicely. I was going to purchase the $24 Sephora concealer brush (#57) but for $8.99 and its good quality, I'll take the Everyday Minerals Eye Kabuki.
Initially I thought this brush would be too huge for my lidspace. But turns out I love it for blending out cream eyeshadow or applying a base from the crease to the browbone. It's also great to 'clean up' after applying shadow; under the brow, under the lower lashline and inner corner. Great quality for $8.00 too.
I love all of the ED brushes. I use this one everyday to apply my base coat of eye shadow. I like to apply a base coat of a nude matte color on my eyelids and this brush is perfect for that. All of the ED brushes are long lasting. I have had them for about 4 years now and they work as well as the more high end brushes that I have.
I have two of these brushes and I wish I had at least one more. I use them for all over lid shadow to brow bone, and I use them for mineral concealer products. I have several beloved Southern Magnolia Minerals concealers that work perfectly with this little, dense brush. I use it with Well Rested all around my eye area and it applies just the right amount of powder without any bristle irritation. It is really soft. Cleans well and does not take forever to dry. I have a ton of brushes from a number of companies. These are the brushes I reach for every day. Very versatile and well priced.
I own at least 2 assorted dozen makeup brushes and this is my favorite brush of all. I use it to stipple and blend concealer under my eyes and on spots. I've used it for a few years now and the brush is still like new. I have nothing bad to say-- highly recommend it!
