After looking at all the great reviews on this product, I wasn't sure if this brush would work for me, because it just looks difficult. I couldn't imagine applying cream eyeliner with a brush that was already bent. Seeing as how I like to wing my eyeliner and needed a different brush (don't like angled), I ventured out to Target to see what the hype was about. I couldn't believe it. I applied PERFECT eyeliner on the first try! It looked better than it ever has. I can't speak about the fraying of the brush as of yet because it is still new. Will give an update after a couple of washings and let everyone know. In the meantime, it's a great brush!
Best eyeliner brush EVER! I can't believe I waited so long to give this a try...quality is top notch and it's great price - $6 @ Target. I've always used angled liner brushes and while I was satisfied with the lines, the results I've gotten with SK's brush puts everything else to shame....Love this brush....
This brush needs to win an award. I use it daily, even with non gel or cream liners, just to smooth or smudge, as needed. But to apply a gel or cream, wow. PERFECTION. I cannot gush enough about this brush. If you like makeup, GO BUY THIS. Now.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Sonia Kashuk brushes are incredible. I've never had any luck with liquid or pencil eyeliner, but I just recently discovered gel liner. I had been using a sample brush to apply this, but it was a little difficult because the brush was so small. I bought this bent liner brush a few weeks ago just to try it out, not expecting much because of my unsteady hand, but I am in love. This brush is angled so perfectly and it makes applying gel (and, i'd expect, cream) eyeliners a piece of cake. I was able to draw the most precise line on both my upper lashes and my waterline. The brush itself is very thin and sturdy and the hairs don't wander like on some brushes. Thank you, Sonia Kashuk, for giving me the perfect brush and actually letting me wear eyeliner as often as I want!
This funny looking brush makes applying cream and gel eyeliners a snap. I'd never had much luck with pencil or liquid and was forced into creating thick lines in an effort to hide the fact that my hands were shaky. The first time I used this however, I was able to create a very fine, neat line. I do not regret this purchase at all.
This is an awesome brush that really does make gel eyeliner a breeze. I will say that I have two of these, though, and one of them got frayed: you have to take good care of it or it can get messed up. Mostly I think that just means washing it often enough and not letting liner cake on the bristles. Still, I don't think I'll ever need another brush for my gel liner. This is a really quality product for the price.
i love this brush<3 i picked this up after watching various reviews on youtube and i must say i really do like it. it makes lining my eye so easy and smooth - controlling the line thickness is also extremely easy. it also comes with like a plastic covering for the brush part that helps to keep its shape and keep it clean after washing it - awesomeeee !
i just picked up a second one :]
definitely recommend for anyone using gel liner
This brush is amazing! Applying gel liner can be tricky, but this brush is really helpful for newbies trying to learn and more experienced people alike. I don't have any complaints in terms of application, once you get the hang of it you can easily do a thick or thin line, wing out your liner, apply to your lower lash line and/or waterline, and be as precise as you want. I also like using it in lieu of a smudge brush with other liners, it picks up excess and maintains a clean line while filling small empty gaps and fixing other minor problems. The brush washes very nicely and even dried gel liner comes out easily without messing up the shape of the brushes. I've had this for over a year now, and it's definitely a HG item for me.
This is an excellent eyeliner brush. The bent angle fits the curves of the eye fantastically and makes applying gel liner much easier (in my opinion at least). The quality is very nice and the price is justifiable. This brush washes very easily without shedding at well, even despite being covered in goopy Paula's Choice gel liner (which is very dry) or waterproof liquid liner. I'm very impressed.
This is amazing. It gives a smooth application to any gel, or cream liner. This is definitely a must have. I cant find anything bad about this brush. It cleans well and does not shed at all. The price is a steal for this brush. It is a must have for anyone from a beauty newbie to professional artist.
The only con, is a small one: the line this brush gives is thin to medium. It can be difficult to make a super thin line. (but that's it honestly buy this thing you will not be disappointed)
