This goat hair brush is excellent at blending. It does not prick/poke my eyelids. It is quite soft, not as soft as my squirrel hair brushes, but I prefer it this way. When washed the dye on the bristles does not run at all. My favourite eyebrushes are those from Shu Uemura Kolinsky/Sable series. EB luxury eyebrush is my next favourite. It works especially well with EB, Burberry and Shu eyeshadows, though with the Armani Eyes to Kill, the applications is kind of messy. I have 2 of this brush, one to use, another in case it goes out of production. In fact, I like it so much that I bought another 2 more as gifts to my sister and sister-in-law.

For $30 this brush is a steal. I have paid much higher for most of my eye brushes. I use it every day and have forgotten about my other brushes. I can use it to apply lid colors and blend in the crease area. It applies both powder and cream and the application feels soft. I have sensitive skin so the blending motion can become irritating but not with this brush. I notice some of my more sheer shadows apply with more pigment when I use this brush too.There is a good weight to the brush and I don't need to clean it often because it does not seem to absorb product. Everything I put on the brush seems to go right on my eye area and what little residue is left just flecks right off. This is great when using two or more shadows for a look. I do use Sephora professional brush cleaner on it from time to time for sanitary purposes. I think anyone with small eyes might not like this because of the size of the head but that is the only con I can think of.

If I could only have one brush, this would be it. It's very similar to my second favorite MAC 224 brush, but I find the bristles to be a little softer and slightly rounder. Without fail my eye make up looks absolutely amazing when I use this Edward Bess eye brush. I use it for the lid, crease and blending and suppose it would also work for under eye concealer. My only critique is that I wish the velvet pouch it comes in was slightly longer so it didn't crush the bristles when I store the brush inside. I've washed this brush several times and have had no issues with shedding or change in texture.

I used to think that I was just crappy at blending shadows, which as a lazy, long-out-of-practice artist bothered me to the core. Then I got this brush, and it made a WORLD of difference. The first thing I noticed was that disappointingly the brush no longer comes in a nice box, but a cheap velvet pouch and plastic sleeve. Annoying, but no biggie. Second, this brush is pretty hefty compared to you typical m/u brush, since the handle and ferrule are metal and not wood/plastic. It won't break your wrist using it, but there's definitely a more substantial feel to it that I personally like.The handle is thankfully a decent length, and doesn't cramp my long fingers during use like some brushes (*cough* Chanel *cough*). The brush head itself is soft, thick, dense, and fluffy, like a mini kabuki for your eyes. As I bought this specifically for blending this is *perfect*, and my shadows blend like a dream with little effort.
My one gripe (and why it's not a 5-lippy HG) is that my brush is already starting to shed after just a week. As other reviews don't mention this problem my brush is probably just a fluke. Won't stop me from buying another though, totally worth the price!

What makes this such an ideal blending brush is the balance between the meticulously tapered edges, for softly diffused edges, and the firmness from the densely gathered, compact hair, so it distributes pigment authoritatively. Though the hair is delicate, not the least bit scratchy on the skin (I'd guess highest quality goat), the brush itself is not soft and yielding, a pressure exactly equivalent to your ring finger---perfect. The brush itself is quite large, but since it tapers to a point, it's maneuverable on my small lid space. Finally, this brush is the height of stylishness in glossy black from tip to handle, save a white "Edward Bess".
Only caveat is the expense. Also, This no longer comes in the box but a velveteen pouch.

This brush is Fantastic!!! It has replaced most of my Mac brushes (217, 239, 224, 226 (very scratchy) etc..). It is the softest and most efficient brush out on the market. It blends any eyeshadow, from high end to drug store quality, beautifully. You can use it as a lay down brush, crease brush and blending brush. It does it all. I can even see this working for concealer. Luxury eye brush comes housed in a BOX!!! My Mac brushes came in thin plastic. This brush retails for $40.00 US dollars and can be purchased at Bergdorf, Neimans or the Bess website. The brush may seem too large at first glance but its tapered head and density (natural hair) are ideal for powdered eyeshadow application. I have a lot of lid space and have been searching for something like this for years. Buy this you will not regret this purchase!! The only thing I regret is the money I spent on all the other brushes. As an added bonus if you choose to visit Bergdorf, you will have the pleasure of meeting the man himself. He is approachable, friendly and a helpful!!

When I first opened my box from Bergdorf Goodman, I thought they had either made a mistake or sent me a very special GWP. Inside, nestled along with my other items, was a long, bracelet-sized box. I slipped the black box out from its white cardboard cover and nearly fainted when I realized it was my Edward Bess Luxury Eye brush. I have received brushes in boxes before, but never such a beautiful presentation.
But when I slipped open the lid I felt moderately disappointed. The brush head looked a bit ratty and way too fluffy. With sinking heart I pulled it out and dipped it into my replacement Intimate eyeshadow. And there my bad impression ended. This brush is fluffy but tight. The ends are angled to allow for control in the crease. The metal handle is a nice change from the usual wood, and it feels substantial in my hand. All I need is a nurse to slap it into my open palm every morning, and I'd feel like like a beauty surgeon.
Best of all, I can apply a highlighter, lid and crease color all with one single brush. Now that truly is a gift.

LOVE this brush! I purchased it at Bergdorf during the gift card event, so the price was slightly discounted. I like that the brush comes in its own box, and I have kept it in the box, separate from all the others.
It is very soft and fluffy, with bristles that fluff out in the middle and then taper back in at the tip. My favorite part of this brush is that it has multiple purposes -- I can use it to apply a wash all over the lid; it can be used to define the crease; the tip can be used for more precise placement in the outer "V"; and of course, it also makes a great blending brush.
if you are looking to pare down your brush stash, or are simply looking for a multiple-tasking high quality brush, give this one a try!

This is a very good quality eye brush. It came in a black wooden box. The brush is very fluffy and is slightly bigger than the MAC 217. The bristles are natural hair in black. I find the bristles not very even/ they don't stay together, some are sticking out which really bugs me. This brush is best for applying one color on the lid or for blending.

My makeup bag these days is overflowing with Burberry and Edward Bess products. No bragging here. I have a theory that on many different levels less is more .Buy quality. Buy less. I swapped and gave away many of my old brushes and decided one would do. I purchased the luxury eye brush and yes, it is expensive but with proper care will last for years. It comes in an elegant,yet simple wooden box. It is the kind of brush that needs a box worthy of it. One would expect a fine piece of jewelry to be on the inside and to some extent it is ; heavy weighted metal and sleek with an expansive natural bristle brush. Jewelry for the makeup bag. The brush can take one broad sweep of your eye lid or can be angled for a smaller area. Buying quality. Buying less.
