This was very poorly thought out. It is impossible to put the gel liner on with this. The brush splays badly even with careful washing. The MAC slanted brush #266 is the one for the job if you want a thin line. But the best, the absolute best for gel liners is the one that comes with L'Oreal gel liner. It is short and wide and a little rough but man, this gets a perfect line quickly. It looks like a spent a lot of time getting it so perfect. I don't believe the BB brushes are very good. MAC and Trish McEvoy are much better.

Very difficult to use for a thin line. The bristles tend to splay after a few washes and renders the brush useless. I expected better from BB :(

This has been my eyeliner brush since high school and I'm currently 24. I've repeated it three times...! back in high school, only Bobbi Brown sold decent gel eye liner brushes..! well that's what I thought in those days..! This brush is quiet good.... ummm yeah not bad. But I won't pay $50 (AU) just for a small brush like this! not anymore!

Also, many Japanese eyeliners (eg. Kate and even Maybelline in Asia sells gel-liners 'with' a brush together) and its like $15!!! soo... now I won't repurchase Bobbi Brown.. but in summary..

-It's a good brush because its quiet easy to use (its like a thin pen)

But that's it! nothing more- and it's expensive!!! not worth the money- sorry ;)

I'm so glad I got this brush in a swap because I found it to be the worst eyeliner brush I've ever used in all the yrs. I've been wearing makeup. First, it's not worth spending your money on. Second, it's hard to achieve perfect lines. The only thing I found a great use for is lining my lower lash line, but I can use any eyeliner brush for that. Btw, I found, like some reviewers mentioned, that the brush hairs fray. It just seems more like a drugstore brush. Heck, even drugstore brushes are better than this piece of junk. Not worth to spend $25 on IMO.

I've tried and tried to use this brush and get decent results with the gel eyeliner (which is great by the way), but I simply can not get a smooth line with this brush.

I went back to using my Trish McEvoy No. 11 with the gel and the results were fantastic.

PROS: This really works for some.

CONS: It made my application very messy. I think it's hard to use. Got messy and worn quickly.

[[[ For gel eyeliner, I prefer Trish McEvoy #11 "Precise Eye Lining" brush. For gel or cake, I like the Trish McEvoy #11 for tightlining and for a softer brush, Laura Mercier's Pointed Eyeliner brush. ]]]

Great brush, as it allows for ultra-precise application. I use it after every use to prevent dried-up paint build-up. I agree with a previous reviewer that it's very expensive and should come with a cap for that price.

Price: It got it in a kit with a mascara and 2 gel liners but I gather that is expensive bought seperately
Why: I wanted the gel liners and it came with them free
Did it work: It works great with all the gel liners I've tried
Good points: Easy application, small (easy for travel), not to thick, not too thin.
Bad points: It has splayed a little bit over time
Extra comments: Really enjoy using this brush. It works on creating that cat eye look on the upper lid, or defining your eyes on your waterline

Would work for: Everyone and anyone who need a good liner brush

This brush came with the long wear eye set that I had purchased not long ago. And I've only ever used Mac's liquid eye liner and had always wanted to try BB's gel eye liner. Anyway, I have to say that I love this brush, it really is ultra fine in order for you to achieve that perfect line. Whether its thin that you prefer as you can get the line extremely close to your lash line or if you want a thicker line you can easily build it up. I highly recommend it for those who are wanting to try out gel liners as this is perfect!
