This is an awesome eye brush for an unbeatable price! I use this nearly every day on my eye crease with the color Darkhorse (from the Urban Decay Naked Palette). I own the newer version of this brush (the red and black one that is shorter).
One thing: if you are looking to use this brush as your main blending brush it might be too small. This is better (in my opinion) for smaller tasks like further defining the crease or smoking out the shadow on the outer corner of the upper or lower lid.

This brush is UH-MAZING! It was only $3 AUD and i'm so happy i bought it! I was going to buy the M.A.C 217 brush which was $43!! Soooo happy i found this one instead! It fits perfectly into my crease and its great for blending. It packs on colour and then is easy to blend out. Definitely going to buy this one again if anything happens to it. For the price it sounds cheap and bad but the quality is really good!

Honestly, this brush is AMAZING and such a steal. I watched this girls youtube video (macmeover99) and she said it was a great eyeshadow brush for only $3!! ANyway, i was at wal mart and saw the same brush and thought $3, why not? And it really works great! I think its comparable to the 226.. i'm really debating going back and seeing if there are any more because it's held up after a few washes and none of the hairs shed. It's a bit shorter but so what, its basically a steal!

I bought this in Superdrug recently, I had been looking for a contour brush and decided to buy this, as it was only £5.99. The brush I bought is not a full length one, I've seen other people have longer versions of this though. I do like the length as I feel it gives more control of the brush. Some YouTube reviews I heard of this said there was a lot of shedding, but I've had none at all. The bristles are soft, but not too soft. It packs on colour fairly well and blends beautifully. I'm really pleased with the brush.

I bought this at a local outlet store. I was apprehensive since it was a drugstore company brush but thankfully, I was proved very wrong.
The bristles are soft enough to be flexible but firm enough not to flop around and give a messy result. It picks up pigment VERY well and applies it very evenly.
I love how it's tapered so it can be used for the outer V as well. I LOOVVEE using it for both.
The design is very sleek. The handle is very long so there's great control.
I have smaller eyes and this fits perfectly. It's not overwhelming in the least.
It's very precise, easy to clean, maintains it's shape and can easily be an all-in-one brush.
I do hope this lasts me for several years because I adore it so much. If I needed too, i'd buy again without thinking twice.

this brush is sooooooooooo great for crease work " keep in mind i have the mac 217 brush" and this brush gives me the same results as the mac 217 ...also i love it for blending under eye concealer it's very soft , somewhat densely packed so it's firm enough to get the job done...NO SHEDDING WHAT SO EVER ..held up well after washing... love it and will def repurchase
edit : i've already bought another one to use to blend my under eye concealer and the first still working great at blending eye shadow on my crease ...love it

This is the perfect blending brush. And its so cheap compared to most high brands. I love my mac 217 for concealer. But for a cheaper price the revlon one is amazing. I was so gutted when I lost mine, and I cannot explain how happy I was when I found it, thats how good it. But I do have to say that it is fairly large, and may not be so great for smaller eyes. I have really big eyes, and alot of eyelid space so this is perfect for me. I only use mine for blending eyeshadow. but anyone should give it a try because it is really good, and quite cheap.

This brush is GREAT!! I just bought it after seeing reviews on YT and tutorials with gurus using this brush and I had to try it. Glad I did. It works that crease like no other. I used the 226 on one eye and this brush on the other and I was impressed. It's more rounded at the end which makes it better for blending out the crease, in my opinion and from what I've experienced. It's almost $6 at Walmart and I'd buy this again, definite. In fact, I may go back to get another one tomorrow!!

i reallyr eally like this brush ! Ive been wanting the mac 226 for quite some time, however its dis-continued, and EXPENSIVE! but alot of people have said this one is acctualy a greap dupe for it! SO i went out and bought it today :D it was about £6, so relitivly cheap, ecpsecially compared to mac brushes! were it would cost you more for just a lash comb!! When i got this home, i compared to some of my other birshes, and it trying it out it remined me of my SS219( sigmas dupe for macs 219) and MAC's 217, it applyied the colour great to the crease and outer V however it's a little bigger and denser than the 219 and thats when i thought ofthe 2171 perfect for the crease, however this revlon brush is abit more tapered :D
Overall im very glad i bought this, its soft dense,perfect for packing the colour on!! and just an all round great brush i comletely recommened itt !

I love this brush. So soft and dense. It's pointed enough to help with precision and also nicely rounded to help with blending.

This brush is only $5.99 at drugstore.com. It is worth the price. The tip is more pointed than the 217 which allows for more precise crease work. It is between a 217 and a 226. I was impressed by the quality of the construction of the brush handle. The bristles are made of "natural hairs" according to the packaging.

I have three of these brushes. If I remember correctly, they shed a bit at first, but mine don't shed any more and I've had them for about 3 years. The interesting thing about this brush is the difference from brush to brush in the cut of the bristles. I have two that are decently tapered that I designated as actual crease brushes, and one that is more spread out at the tip, that I use as a highlighter brush. I put some colored tape on the ferrule of this one so that I can spot it easily in the forest of my makeup brushes :) I've recently decided that I prefer using a smaller crease brush for actual crease application, so now I use these to blend out my crease and they work wonderfully for this purpose.

I needed a crease brush (as my dark eyeshadow applied by q-tip wasn't cutting it) and saw that this one in particular had garnered rave reviews. After purchasing and having tried it out, I'm shocked that it rated so high with MUA members. Everyone must have HUGE creases. I use a white shadow on my lid and dark brown in the crease-when I applying the latter using this, it's almost impossible to keep the white shadow from being muddied up. I also find that the bristles are soft-TOO soft. Not dense enough to pack on color. More like "dusting" which only adds to messy application and fallout. Very disappointed.

My MAC 217 has been collecting dust since I bought this amazing brush. It makes me love Revlon even more than I already do, they've really upped their game. This is perfect, dare I say BETTER than the 217 for blending and crease work. It fits in my crease perfectly and is so soft. Also, the glossy long handle does indeed somehow help with control and looks classy and equally as professional as MAC brushes. Picks up color, loose or pressed, perfectly and evenly. I also like that the bristles are black because I'm sort of OCD about staining! I want another one!

I picked this up at my local Walmart for $6. This brush is PERFECT for my crease! I reach for it everyday since I got it. I find it much better than the MAC 226. It delivers the perfect amount of shadow and blends them so nicely. It's super soft. I don't find mine prickly at all. I just <3 it so much! I am going to pick up a few just in case Revlon discontinues them.

I don't own any professional brushes so I won't be very technical in my review. My good brushes are mainly from the Body Shop. This one really surprised me. I think it is pretty good. The bristles are soft, don't scratch and the shape allows to get in the crease perfectly. I also love the long handle - it feels like it helps somehow. I really don't have anything bad to say (maybe until I try something better).

Wow, I was sooo excited about this brush. Got it from Walmart for $7ish.
The bristles are so soft, doesn't poke my eye like MAC, and the size is perfect.....
However, my only complain was the way this brush picked up eyeshadow pigments. Using this with Shu Uemura eyeshadows, brush had trouble picking up shadow when used lightly, but with more force too much pigments were picked up. Then transferring to the eye also didn't work very consistently; the brush either deposited too much or too little pigments.
Perhaps this is a trend for all synthetic eye brushes, this is the first one I've used on powder eye shadow (my other synthetic eye brushes are for cream shadow or liner).
Overall this is a very good brush especially for the price. It looks very nice next in my brush collection (I have MAC, Japonesque, Shu Uemura, Smashbox and various other eye brushes).
Between this and the Essence of Beauty Crease brush, I like this brush more although that one didn't have the problem with picking up the shadow, the ergonomics of that brush is not as nice.

When I found this brush I was really excited, I love brushes that are shaped like this one. When I do a single shadow look I use a brush shaped like this to blend out the shadow. Over all I would give it three lippies. It does the job and blends but I find that the bristles are scratchy. It doesn't feel good on my lids and mine are somewhat sensitive. The price is reasonable about 6 or 7 dollars. The packaging is typical nothing great but not bad. Unfortunately I won't buy any more. I hate scratchy brushes.

This shadow brush is my new fave. I have been using it for a while now and it has taken the place of many other brushes I have for this purpose (crease).
AAB's if you want to make your small eyes look larger this is an excellent brush. I use it to make a "form" with my eyes open over where my natural crease would be if it were visible. I start with my color above my lash line and blend the color back towards the outer eye so that it fades gradually, when you have used the majority of the color take the brush over the mid and almost to the inner eye, again above where your natural crease would be if it were visible. Connect the bottom lash line to the top and you create a form to work off of. After that build up the color intensity. Put on a lid and brow highlight and voila! I find that the brushes are dense enough to make a neat form and it is a lot easier than using a pencil - also, it is much softer looking that a hard cut-crease.
Of all the brushes I own this is by far the easiest one to use. Don't get me wrong I love my MAC brushes but as you can see in the image for this product it is slightly less rounded out than the MAC equivalent. It is inexpensive, readily avail for purchase anywhere that sells Revlon and versatile. I am planning on purchasing backups of this brush.
