I don't have a many brushes. Most of the time I just suck it up and use the stupid applicator that comes with the product; ie eye shadows. But I love my Smashbox brow brush. It is the perfect combination with their brow powder, which is a staple in my makeup bag. I don't even know how this would compare to a cheaper brush, because I don't care to find out.

This is my go-to brow brush. I've tried tons of brushes throughout the years and this is still my favorite. This is really the only SB brush I use so I love that the handle is red because I can always find it quickly. It's very high quality - I've only had to repurchase recently (lasted 10 years) and only because the glue that holds the brush portion to the handle wore out. This is the only brush I have found with high-quality dense, stiff bristles. I have dark brows that just need to be filled in certain spots or sometimes I like to make them slightly thicker. This brush deposits color easily and looks natural. I'm not a big fan of the softer brow brushes (hello MAC) because they deposit too much powder and it just looks like you have eyeshadow on your brows. This is the only brow brush I will use.

I know this is a brow brush but I bought it to apply eye liner. It works okay for blending and especially for creating 'wings', but I've found that the hairs are a little scratchy for the eye area, and they tend to fray. The handle also gets scratched up quite easily. All in all, an okay brush.

i love this brush. of all the brow brushes ive tried, this is my favourite, its got the perfect shape for filling and shaping my eyebrows. its dense, not scratchy and doesnt shed either. i use it to apply bare escentuals brow powder, and those two things combined make my eyebrows look amazing. if i lost this brush, id definitely repurchase it.

I loveee this brush. It's absolutely worth the money. If I lost it today I would definetly pick another one up. Doesn't shed at all and is the perfect texture. You can make thin lines and be very precise with the long handled brush.

If I had to pick ONE brush to save, it would be the Smashbox angle brow brush. It's $20 on the smashbox website which is rather pricey but it's 100% worth it. It's not the softest brush but the stiffness and thickness is perfect for applying brow powder. I've abused and used it everyday since 7 years ago and the shape still looks new.

I got this brush with the #8 on the other end. I know people use this for brows but I like it for eyeliner! It's definitely thicker AND softer than the mac 208 which irritated my eyes. I just bought the 266 and I'll see how this compares. This is obviously thicker than the 266 though. Like twice as thick. Not a big problem for people with clearly defined lids. But for me, the 208 was extremely small and this gives me such a thick line! I dont mind the thickness, but I do want something thinner.

I have this brush in the travel size as i wanted something with a shorter handle. The brush is good but i found the bristles a bit too stiff for the 'softer' look i was looking for. I think it would be good for those who want a strong brow or have nice thick eyebrows - but not for me who has finer eyebrows and prefers a softer, more natural look.
I just use the little brush that comes with the E.L.F Studio brow kit and it is perfect for me!!

I bought this brush on ebay a few years ago. We have only started to have Smashbox on Australian soils this year. I went for a makeover where they used this brush and I felt compelled to write about how awesome it is.
I have the brow and eyeliner due brush. I never use the eyeliner section as I like very small, flat, eyeliner brushes but I have never even tried to find another eyebrow brush. It has great control and gives a lovely natural finish to your eyebrows.
My eyebrow powder of choice was Benefit which I used for 6 years - only because the thing never ran out till I dropped it and smashed it. I came across the Browtech today and am excited to report that this is also a great brow powder however that's another review.

I only bought this because Nordstrom was sold out of the Trish McEvoy #32 eyebrow brush (my favorite). I've regretted the purchase ever since. The bristles of this Smashbox brush are too long, too wide, and not stiff enough to give the ideal application of eyebrow color. Because it's so soft, it works well as an eyeliner brush...but that's not what I bought it for. Don't get me wrong--this is not a horrible brush or anything; it gets the job done. But for the same price, I could've bought an exceptional brush from Trish. I would not repurchase.

I know this is supposed to be a brow brush, but I like using this to apply my eyeliner. I usually wear my eyeliner thick and smudged along my upper lash line, and this angle gets it just right. It's easier for me to control than those paintbrush-like pointed brushes that leaves a thin line. Very well made brush and reminds me of the MAC #266.

This is my first Brow brush so I have nothing to compare it to.
I bought Benefit's Brow Zings & read reviews on MUA recommending this brush. I'm very glad people put their experiences here because it's SO much easier to apply with this brush.
The No. 12 Brow Brush makes application faster, and puts the wax & powder in place effortlessly. The brush does all the work for you. The long handle really helps you give the brow definition.
I also bought the shorter Travel version of this brush, but prefer the original with the long handle, I think I have more control.

I have a hate/hate relationship with this brand. Ive tried many smashbox items- lipgloss, e/s, mascara, e/l, brow, blush, primers, palettes, and now this brush and as usual I am disapointed:-( At first for about 3 weeks it worked great, like a dream- soft but firm and deposited my brow powder perfectly, then the hairs started to fluff out, and it lost its shape and was no longer of any use to me. I treat my brushes well- I have MAC and toofaced ones that Ive had for almost 10 years, use daily, and are still in perfect shape so I know the problem is the brush not me:-((

I have the duo ended brush, one with the brow brush and the other end the flat liner brush. Got mine from a Smashbox kit. I like using the brow brush for lighter filling in application. It applies my brow powders really well and I can easily build up the shade without it brushing off products from my brows. It's not too stiff or soft, just perfect for brow application especially when I rush. I haven't tried it as a liner brush, but the flat liner brush at the end of my duo kinda sucks :x
I'd definitely buy this brush alone if I needed a backup or replacement. I prefer this over the brow and angle brushes from MAC.

It works very well for me as a liner brush. The slant makes it very easy to use. I would probably buy it again if I had to.

I use this brush everyday. It has thick, stiff, but still soft bristles with a slanted tip. It picks up a good amount of product (I use Smashbox brow tech) I start at the end of my brow, the side closer to the temple, so that most of the color is deposited there, I work in short strokes all the way to the inner part, this way I get the right amount of color deposit and my brows do not look too overpowering.

I don't think this is the best brow brush out there .. but it serves it's purpose and is an essential part of my everyday makeup routine since I've started using powder instead of pencil to fill my brows in. It deposits color well, I just wish it was a little shorter and slightly more stiff to allow for even better application. Not a horrible brush by any stretch .. it's held up through several washings and hasn't shed a single hair .. but I continue to look for a better brush that will perform better.

I got this in a brush set a while back, and out of all my angled brushes, this is my favorite for dealing with my brows. It's nice stiff bristles give me good control for grooming my brows while filling them in naturally. If I ever broke this brush, i'd definitely buy this separately.

I was debating between this and the NARS brow brush-- I'm very happy to say that I'm extremely pleased I decided to buy this one :D. The bristles have the right amount of stiffness and the overall length of the brush is perfect.

Very good brush for what it does. It is hard enough to give you defined brows. Smashbox makes very high quality brushes and I love the red handles. They look beautiful in my makeup bags.
