Well this brush is def one of a kind, well in my collection since most of my most used eyeliner brushes happen to be Paint brushes since i can get a very small brush for my small eyes & novice application but Avon Eyeliner brush was one of my first brush purchases, believe it or not! =PRICE/AVAILABILITY= The Avon Eyeliner brush can be purchased online on Avon site or thru your avon rep. i dont have one now which stinks but online you can shop just as easy but of course, the shipping cost will be added. or ive seen some online sites selling these but thru Avon this brush will cost you $4 depending on sale/discounts. is it worth it? i think so but maybe not since i have so many cheaper brushes (like my paint brushes) i dont think the price is bad. on sale, def worth it! =PERFORMANCE= This brush makes a great multi purpose brush for so many makeup steps. I love using this brush for so many things like: -Applying eyeliner (great for gel or cream liners) if you like thick dramatic lines -Smudging liner (this is great for smudging any liner gels, cream, or pencil liner!) its stiff & firm enough to do the job well -Smudging shadow along lash lines (this brush is firm but flexible so it smudges w/out tugging, love using it for this) -Brow work (great thickness to fill in brows w/ wax or powder, its thick & firm to work with brow waxes too) -Spreading out lip liner (if you are a lip liner girl, then this brush is good for when you need to make sure your lip liner is spread evenly over your lips, small enough for the job) The brush is a little wider than say the $1 elf concealer brush and thicker than some liner brushes. If you like a thick & dense firm brush thats not TOO FIRM & allows some flexibility, turn to this brush. this brush is soft, natural bristles so doesnt scratch or pull on the eye area. its soft enough for eye area, i have not seen a single hair shed thru uses & washes. I always wipe my liner brushes after each use w/ makeup or baby wipe & their my highly used brushes & this w/stood many uses & washes. Its still like brand new! So for all this purposes, im sure you will find a use for this brush plus im sure there is more that im not thinking of or havent tried! its a great brush but i like my liner to be thinner than what this brush allows but i still get my use out of it. =PACKAGING= The brush itself is a wider & thick brush but still great. I love the black handle & ferrule. The bristles are natural hair & soft & firm. There has been no shedding. The ferrule has remained intact w/ out feeling loose or like it was going ot fall off. The liner handle is what i call the perfect length. about 5-6 inches maybe? so long enough to hold easily & not so long that it hits my mirror like some. The handle is somewhat bowed at the end, it widens out which makes a nice handle & grips easy. The name & avon logo is in white writing on the handle. Im pretty sure its wooden but maybe its some really sturdy plastic? someone can correct or answer that. Its a nicely made brush. Overall, This brush isnt what i like to reach for for when i use gel or cream liners but i have small eyelids. but all of us have different preferences so it may be perfect for you. i still do really enjoy this brush alot! Ive found some great ways to use this brush & reach for it often. Would i repurchase? yes if i ever had to but im hoping i never do since it would have to be lost or broke. This has held up for over 4 yrs w/out wearing down at all! Great affordable brush for those on a budget or those looking for more brushes to add to their collection!
