I just finished reviewing the M.A.C. 239 & I thought that I would review this brush since I use this particular brush as a my main "back-up" for my 239 brush. I love my M.A.C. 239 & I gave it a 5. However, I also love my cute pink Coastal Scents Shadow Brush that costs only $1.95!! This brush is very sturdy, reliable, & well made. Not to mention, very cute to boot! It is not a M.A.C. 239 brush that costs $24.50, but it is an adorable little powerhouse brush that proves itself to be much better than only $1.95. Please... This brush out-performs other high-end shadow brushes. I am so pleased with this pink beauty that I have dubbed it as my "main back-up shadow brush"... This is my second favorite shadow brush right after my 239. It goes to show us that good things don't always have to be expensive. I respect this brush as much as I do my 239. This brush has proved itself worthy & the price of this brush is RIDICULOUSLY cheap for what a little gem that it really is.
Maybe I got a bad one but this one sheds.
It's a bit big for my lids, but it is great as a brow highlighter.
Too bad that it sheds.
i love this brush perfect for all over the lid eye shadow i like it better than mac large shadow brush
This is the perfect brow highlighter brush! A high quality brush with dense hairs for an amazing price.
This brush is SO soft and fluffy! The hairs are dense and picks up color very well. It's a rather large shadow brush, for me at least, but I think it still works good for the lids and as for highlighting under the brows.
NOTE: This brush is IDENTICAL to the Black Sable Shadow brush from CS.
I agree with the person who said its like the E.L.F brush, i use it for my lid and i love how it applies my shadow, worth repurchasing
SUPER similar to the E.L.F. eyeshadow brush, but more densely packed. The bristles are the same quality, just as soft. It applies a soft wash of colour very evenly.
The pink handle is a bonus.
Note: This brush is identical to the black sable brush that they offer.
I'm going to also compare this to the elf eyeshadow brush but I have had a different experience than the previous reviewer. I find that the CS brush is softer and more densely packed than the elf brush. My CS brush has maybe shed 3 hairs after multiple washings whereas my elf brush has shed way more than that even when dry. I really like this brush. It packs the colour on great and holds up well with washing. I tend to reach for it more often than my more expensive brushes. The cute pink handle doesn't hurt either!
I've only used this once, but it seems to be a very nice shadow brush. It's basically the same as the ELF eyeshadow brush, but with a cuter pink handle. The bristles aren't as soft as the ELF brush, so I took off a point for that, but it will probably be better after it is conditioned. It's only $1.95!
