This is probably my favourite blending brush. I use the MAC 217 a lot but when I use the Smashbox 10 crease brush, I wonder why I don't use it all the time. It's excellent for blending to create a soft finish which is my day time preference. The 217 is good for blending harsh lines with dark colours I think as the bristles are a little firmer but this Smashbox brush is brilliant for blending everything together seamlessly. Really recommend!
I wanted to love this brush.. But it loses shape so quickly and becomes enormously fluffy.. So much so it becomes useless. Drying it as it's wrapper in paper towel helps but come on, seriously ?
I loooooove this brush. This is my HG everyday eyeshadow brush. This blends like a DREAM and incredibly soft. It is great whether you want a wash of color on your lids/crease or if you want to do really detailed work. I hope I am never without this brush.
This is my HG eyeshadow brush. It is sooooo soft and applys and blends out eyeshadow like no other. I will use this forever! It is also good for setting concealer undereyes, and contouring your nose.
Loooooooovvvvvvveeeeee this brush. It's perfect for blending and also for picking up product. It's a long lasting brush as i've had mine a couple of years and it's still in perfect condition.
I have had this brush for about 2-3 months and I love it (although I generally love all things smashbox!). It is a great crease brush but I like it for applying colours with lots of pigment as it gives a lovely sheer light application. I generally use very neutral colours so when i'm trying out more bold colours I like that this applies it softly allowing my to build up. Its lovely and soft, good quality although quite pricey. Ive washed it often and still in great condition. I would buy again if I ever have 2.
Used several crease brushes, this is the best.
Bought it on ebay, really impressed low price but authentic.
a very good makeup brushes shop
At first I liked this brush and found it comparable to the MAC 224, but a little larger. It gives kind of a diffused color in the crease, rather than a more defined one you might get from a MAC 217. Over a short amount of time though, it lost its shape and splayed out pretty badly. It's not really usable now, except maybe for a light cheek highlight or something. I don't find the bristles hold product as well as other brushes and for the price, I wouldn't recommend it.
I love this
I got it on Ebay for really cheap, it is double-ended but I mainly use the number 10
It is an amazing crease brush. I is similar to my MAC 224 but a bit denser and more compact (mine has seen a lot of action).
I use it every day and think it is perfect for my day-to-day natural browns.
i highly recommend it!
I had this brush for a very long time before I actually learned to use it and now I use it daily. It's one of my top 3 brushes of all time and I can't live without it. I have several MAC 217's and two 224's but I still use my Smashbox #10 everyday. This brush works perfectly for my monolids. I use it to add a pop of color underneath my brow bone. I prefer the MAC 217 for blending. It does a better job of blending out harsh lines. I use the #10 to blend a little bit but its shape doesn't lend itself well to serious blending work. If you're looking for classic windshield washer crease brush then definitely get this brush. However, if you're looking for a multitasking crease/blender brush, go for the 217. Why get the #10 at all, you ask? For me, the rounder, bigger, and flufflier shape of the #10 works better to add a soft pop of color to my socket area, which helps to add depth to my eyes. The 217 is too flat and not big enough for how I like to wear my eye makeup so I use it exclusively for blending.
I've had my #10 for years and it's still as good as new. I seriously cannot do my eye maeup withou it. Aren't the red lacquer Smashbox handles the most gorgeous and sexy handles ever?
