A MUST for all monolid / hooded eye MUAers out there. This is a slim, soft tapered eyeshadow brush that does creasework like a dream for people with small lids. Think the 224, but slimmer and very slightly stiffer and also made from squirrel, which means super soft bristles. It creates eye depth in seconds and I also use it for contouring around my nose. It's slim shape means blending stays where I want to stay and doesn't blend pigment outside of my lid area, which happens with bigger brushes. I love this brush!
