This brush is amazing! Superior for blending. I was a little worried that it might be too big for my eyes, but it keeps the color where I want it. I first started with the SE version from a kit & instantly fell in love. I reach for this more than I do the 217.
Not a bad product but the Paula Dorf eye crease brush is fabulous! Not too easy to find but a superior brush for crease blending.
great brush for blending...a must-have in my book!
I have been using my two brushes since 1993! I keep one for a soft wash on lid or highlight, and the other for a darker crease color. I love the way it gently distributes the darker shade along my crease line and a bit on my upper lid as well as on my outer corner without fancy handwork.
at first i thought this brush was useless, but when i started practicing putting eyeshadow on, i found this to be really useful. it really does DO the job for you! blending is easy now!
So, I've had this brush sitting in my train case for quite some time and never used it until recently. A friend bought me a brush set a few years ago and I didn't know what the heck to do with this brush. I've recently gotten into the art of eyeshadow and kept hearing "blend, blend, blend". Well, the light bulb went off and I realized I had a valuable gem just sitting and collecting dust. Wow! I've got to say this makes everything so easy...blending, light wash of color, etc. I'm no pro at eyeshadow application but using this brush I've been able to achieve some beautiful looks. This is a must have brush!
ive been coveting this brush for quite sometime, and I'm so happy i finally purchased it. amazing brush, phenomenal results...worth every penny.
When I first bought this brush, I didn't know what the heck to do with it. It seemed way too big and not dense enought to be a good blending brush. I neglected it for a few months in favor of my #222 and #217. However, I have since come to love this brush just as much as the other 2. This brush is perfect for 2 things: blending a highlight into the browbone, and applying a non-defined crease color. The loose bristles on the brush make it perfect for delicate blending. If you are trying to blend out a dark color, the #227 would be a better fit. If you want to apply a more precise crease, the #222 is the brush for you. This brush is $28, and since it will last for years, it is definitely worth it. I would repurchase if I ever needed to.
I was always using the famous 217 brush for doing my crease. I used it for months this way and was never satisfied with the result it gave me. One day I saw on youtube a girl who was using this for doing her crease instead of the 217 so after saving a couple of weeks (I know, they are expensive but sooooo worth it) I went out and bought the 224. Now my crease looks perfect. Even my cousin who is 17 and never did her crease was able to do so with this brush. The hairs are so soft and the quality is superb. I now use my 217 brush for applying concealer under my eyes (Effacernes btw).
I love this brush. I mainly use this without any colour on the brush to blend out my crease. I also use this to highlight and contour my nose. I think its a bit too fluffy for controlled application to my crease I prefer to use the 222 and then blend with the 224. A great brush I reach for everyday!!
