I love this brush! It's so soft and fluffy, I reach for it again and again and again... very similar to my MAC 224 which I find a bit scratchy. Serious love for this brush!

I don't know what I was thinking, buying this brush, since I tell right away in the store that it wasn't going to get the job done. It's simply too big to work as a crease brush -- both in terms of the overall brush size, and the length of the bristles. This is flat-out a great big brush: way too big and heavy to be using on any part of your eyes (And I don't have a small face or eye area). To add insult to injury, the bristles on this brush, while extremely soft, are way too long and floppy to be utilized for any precision work, such as, oh, say, the crease area. It just creates a big ol' mess.
As a few other reviewers have noted, the brush starts to splay after washing (And not many washings, since I barely use mine). To give this brush a bit of a break, the bristles are, as I said, quite soft, and none have been lost while washing. I do use it, once in a while, to soften the fade between my crease and highlight shades when it's getting a bit severe or streaky. How often this occurs, however, isn't worth the price I paid for it, even on sale. How Quo can sell this in packaging that says "crease brush" on it is beyond me -- there's no way even they can delude themselves into believing this brush can be used for that.
(And since some people seem to have a hard time believing that this brush could receive poor reviews, yes, I am talking about the Crease Brush and NOT the Crease Blender Brush. I have both, and I quite prefer the Blender Brush)

I previously used this quite a bit since I really had a limited amount of brushes. It does feel too big for my crease and really big when I did the outer v. It's also quite stiff and scratchy so it was irritating. I did find it worked well as a pencil/smudge brush for my lower lashes. However, now that I've lost it, I don't really miss it. So no, I will not be repurchasing.

I don't understand why this has quite low ratings. My brush wasn't scratchy at all, the bristles were very soft and easy to clean, it blended my eyeshadow AMAZINGLY well and I love how the handle is smaller than the rest of the brushes. Quite a versatile brush, can be used for multiple things because of the shape of the brush. I've never liked the baggy it came with, VERY difficult to open and get the brush out, but I trash it either way, overall, a very good brush for the fraction of the price.

This brush is pretty low quality. It doesn't blend my shadows well, and the individual brush hairs are not soft at all. It's pretty pokey. Not a fan, will shell out for the 217 next time.

I do believe that some ppl are reviewing the wrong brush as well. This review is for the "crease brush" not the pencil tip-like crease "blender" brush :) I love this brush!! The bristles are sooo soft! i do wish that the bristles were more densely packed...as other's have mentioned... it can be a little too "soft" so you can't really create a more defined outer "V". Nonetheless...at 40%???? it's a great steal!! :-)

I really like this brush! The only down side to it is that its a bit flimsy but the price, and the job is does is great!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is a great brush! I love it! Very soft and works very well. I didn't have any problem with shedding. The only thing was the brush wasn't glued together very well so it was a little flimsy.

I picked up the large crease brush on sale for $7.80 and it is worth every penny, I love it so much that I would pick it up at regular price. The handle length is perfect and not to long. The bristles are soft and bendable that it makes blending colours into the crease a breeze. It picks up colour well without a lot of fall out. I have a lot of lid space so the size of this brush makes e/s application easy and quick. It does a great job! Washes easily and so far the bristles have not shed and I've had it a month and use it almost daily.

far to large to blend,floppy and after one wash a lot of hair fell out...not impressed

I like this brush. It picks up my shadow colors well and gives my a flawless finish on my crease. However the bristles due poke and prod the delicate eye skin! Hopefully the people at Quo will fix that problem when I buy a new one.

I returned it after 1 wash and 1 trial. After the brush was washed and dried, I noticed that the bristles were splaying and when I tried to use it, it gave me little control. The bristles are too long and flimsy, so it was hard to create the outer "V". Just simply, the bristles are not stiff and packed enough to my liking.
I returned it for the smaller "crease blender" Quo brush, hoping that will be better.

I hope everyone is reviewing the right brush here because it seems they are reviewing the 'crease blender' and not the 'crease brush'. Anyways on to my review. I own 2 of these babies and I love them. I picked them up for $10 each and have had them for about a year. They don't let me down when I want to blend out harsh lines, or just add a little definition to my crease. They do get a little splayed but a wash and dry usually fixes that. They are super soft (which some people might not like) but I love it. I didn't like the crease blender brush as I found it a bit stiff and scratchy. I like the handles on the Quo brushes as well. For $10 (when on sale) you cannot go wrong. I CP Quo brushes for ladies in the states all the time - thats how great they are for an inexpensive brush. I will continue to try out Quo brushes as sometimes they can be hit or miss. This one is a hit with me! Docked one lippie for the splaying at times.

This is one of my favourite Quo finds! I use it all the time. I paid $13 Cdn for it on sale and I think it is $16 or $17 regularly. It comes in small and large and I have the small, which suits my purposes perfectly. It's not too small for blending by any means. It's the same size as Mac's brushes, with a matte satin silver handle that's a tad wider and easier on those who have arthritic hands as you don't need to grip it as tightly. This I find is a very forward thinking aspect of all Quo's brushes, the thicker handles. My brush collection is a nice mixture of Quo, Mac, Lancome and Clinique, but Quo is the brand I regularly buy because of price and guaranteed quality.
The bristles are tapered all around and synthetic. When dipping in shadow, it's best to use dry and to lean the brush on its side and gather shadow that way. The same goes for applying it to your crease. Don't jab, stab or point it at your eye. Brush it on gently as you would paint. Or, as you would shave your legs, in gentle strokes. Generally I apply my eye shadow wet, so I always wait for the rest of my shadow to dry before applying my crease shadow to avoid caking. This brush will pick up a lot of shadow, so if you don't want that, use a light hand and/or tap off the excess.
It's best to wash this brush before first use as the bristles tend to be a tad stiff in this particular brush as opposed to other Quo brushes. After one wash it's soft and lovely and your creases will never be easier to blend! These are high quality brushes that hold onto their bristles well, so you needn't worry about it surviving through years of washing. Just remember to lay it flat on a towel to dry so that bacteria will not seep up into the glue.
Using this brush is much easier than a regular or slanted shadow brush. Because it is taped all round you get no sharp edges and thus no streaks on your eyes. It creates a soft, perfectly blended expert look.
I'm very pleased with this purchase. It has made my blending "life" a much happier place to live and I highly recommend picking one of these treasures up for yourself. It's a small price to pay for the effect of well defined eyes.

Excellent brush! I'm so glad I picked this up on sale for $10CA, it is a great find. I distributes color perfectly into the crease area, without flicking any eyeshadow elsewhere. It blends nicely, and I'd definitely compare it to MAC quality.
EDIT: Removed two lippies. After a few months of wear this is starting to lose it's shape and not apply eyeshadow as nicely or accurately. Slightly disappointed! Would not repurchase.

I'm surprised that this brush hasn't been met with better reviews. I was just as surprised when I discovered how well it worked - I picked it up in a pinch, when I was away on vacation and had forgotten every single brush at home. I did most of my makeup with my fingers, but I used this to deepen the color in the outer V. And I loved how it applied the color. I've never been a big crease brush fan, as I find some of them are too long, too floppy, too sharp. But this is perfect. It's soft, firm but not hard, and it deposits just the right amount of pigment. Inexpensive too, but at par with higher end brushes in terms of quality.

I am returning this brush because it seems way too big for anything. When using it at the crease (upper crease, not the outer V), it blends well because it is fluffy and big, but gives no control whatsoever over where the shadow is going. You end up with that same color not only on and above the crease, but also part of it ends up on the eye lid, whether you purposefully want it there or not. I need to be able to have more control over a brush than this! I think this happens because while it seems to be dome-shaped in the packaging, it is actually flatter than it should be when you start using it. This is why the shadow gets picked up on the whole surface of the big brush, not just the tip, and smears it all over the place.
As for blending, it just isn't suitable at all. Again because it is so big, it ends up muddying up everything and just creates one big mess on the eyelid. It doesn't allow you to just blend the thin edge between two colors because the bristles go everywhere around.
Overall I couldn't find a use for it, but I must admit that the quality of the actual bristles is pretty good, I'll give it that much.

Good quality DS brush. I got it for $14 CND. Very soft and picks up e/s really well. This is actually my first low end brush, and i find it to be softer and have better control than BB brushes!

I also got this with my optimum points at shoppers. I liked this brush a lot but then started to notice that the bristles are kinda falling apart. They splay very easily. I like using this to blend my crease colour and use it almost everyday. I prefer lise watier structuring brush to lay down some crease colour, and then this one to blend. It works well when wet with a bit of mixing medium and works nicely with pigments. I would purchase this again when it finaly bites the dust (or use my points!).

i really dislike this brush...it does not work at all for my crease, even though my eyes are pretty big and wide so i figured this would fit my crease perfectly...its too floppy and does not define my crease so i have ended up using it more as a blending brush. i got this brush for 'free' when i cashed in my optimum points which is a good thing because i would have kicked myself repeatedly if i had actually paid money for this. honestly, if you want to try it keep the reciept just in case.
