This is a great brush as long as you learn how to use it. A lot of people complain about it being worse than the other eye liner brush BB offers, however I think with this one you get a lot more precision. Once you are used to it, it is a great way to apply eyeliner, you get the line as thin and as thick as you want and it is great for finishing the cat eye look. Definitely recommend it

I purchased this brush from Sephora in February of 2012. I had just started to get into makeup and having hooded lids, eyeliner was a real challenge. Prior to my purchase, I couldn't get thin enough lines with pencil or liquid liners I had tried. I thought I would give gel liner a try and ordered a Bobbi Brown ink. I had tried angled brushes, I had tried ultra thin brushes, nothing was working for me. I came across the brush in an online tutorial and I thought I would give it a try. I'm so very glad I did. I can create the thinnest, uniform line on my upper lid. I can tightline if I want to. I can do a well defined cat eye. I can finally wear and appreciate the addition of liner in my eye application. This brush has held up excellent over the past 14 months. It's in just as good condition today as when I first purchased it. I think the term "Ultra Fine Eyeliner" is absolutely true. Fantastic brush and I can't think of a single criticism.

I bought this brush years ago...I still have it surprisingly but it's only really usable if you want to line your water line...it's impossible to try and line the top, the brush is way too thick! This brush makes no sense! I purchased an eyeliner brush from ELF for $3(!) that does the trick! Don't waste your money...you won't be able to use this brush for much other than lining the waterline...

This brush is too expensive .
There are cheaper brushes that work better .Like the Maybelline eyeliner brush .

This brush is world's better then any other I've ever tried! To be honest I never would have tried it if my boyfriend had not offered my extra Christmas gifts inside sephora on Christmas eve. My brush was in its final throws od death and I did really need a new one but my boyfriend is a man of little patience so I had less then five minute to decided! Mega crunch time lol. But I remember one of my friends raving about this so I swiped it up and hoped for the best and I'm so glad I did! I've tried so many brushes from dior to mac and Sonia k and THIS beauty is by far the best eyeliner brush evet! Great for every eye look, tight lining, cat eye etc. AMAZING!! I You must buy, trust me you won't regret it! Wonderful for gel eyeliner!! The packaging is nice as the little plastic cap is saveable and the price is more then mac but less then the likes of ysl. Sturdy, good length and quality bristles. I forsee this outliving my previous in longevity. An outstanding buy!

I'm not very impressed by this brush. I prefer a thin line as I only have small lids but its very hard to achieve that with this. The brush isn't particularly gentle on the lids either. I wouldn't recommend or repurchase.

Not impressed with this brush at all. It LOOKS like it would work great, especially if you want to go thin to thick, but it's like trying to put eyeliner on with a mop. IMO it doesn't have enough stiffness to stand up to gel eyeliner, and because it's tapered, it gets weaker towards the tip. You then have to press harder which results in a thicker line....which bites if you were still wanting a thin line. I used it twice and it's already looking tired. It may go back. Don't waste the bucks.

I've been using gel/creme eyeliner almost exclusively for about a year and have tried about 7 or 8 brushes so far. This my favorite, without question. I can draw so much more neatly than with any of the others I've tried (most notable probably being Sephora's Pro Angled Eyeliner Brush). I always have had trouble making the outer edge of my gel eyeliner stay close to my lashline, but this brush makes it so easy! I think this brush is great for a natural look. FYI I did remove 1 lippe because it was expensive and I can't yet attest to how well it maintains its shape over time.

I usually love her brushes, but this can't work for anyone unless you want a really thick line, I think. I don't get her shape on this one at all, why is it not angled like Smashbox or Sephora? And if it is not pointy and small and she is going for the flat placement type, like Trish McEvoy, then why is it curved? Well, not for me.

Bought this to apply BB gel eyeliner-professional size. It apples gel liner beautifully for a thick or thin line. CON is that the ends to splay after a while and so it can be a bit tricky to get a wing. I MAY rebuy, if I ever need to.

I bought this when I got the gel liner as the sales assistant recommended it. I wish I didn't fall for it because I found it awkward to use and prefer benefit get bent brush. Now I use it to line my waterline which I don't do a lot so it was a waste of money for me.

It is an expensive brush.. but it is really soft and it's easy to apply the gel liner. I just hope that the brush will last since it's quite expensive!

Presumably this is intended for use with the BB Long Wear Gel Eye Liners. This brush has firm natural hairs gathered into a narrow, slightly flattened head and trimmed to a medium point; not too pointy/floppy, and not too broad. Long handle is well balanced. Similar in look and feel to BB's lip brush, but with a narrower, more pointy head. It's kind of a cross between the flat angled liner types and the pointy round pencil brush types. Works nicely for lining with a soft (not sharp or well defined) line.

I scored this brush on a swap, and I am surprised by how much I like it. It draws a good, clean line with my Bobbi Brown gel liners. However, in my experience, this liner brush does not produce a super thin line. Maybe it's my technique too. But I actually go to this brush when I want my eyeliner to be a bit noticeable and medium-thick. My go to for a really thin line close to the lashes is the Shu Uemura 5f (sable), which produces a more fine line for me. But this is a great brush for me because I'm not always looking for that thin line, depending on my mood.

I put off buying this brush for a long time b/c I thought spending $20+ for a gel then another $20+ to put the gel on was ridiculous. I'm a liquid-liner type of gal and have a special place in my heart for d/s liquids b/c for under $10 you get brush + product that lasts and stays crisp. With the onslaught of gel liners, I've been largely going on the cheap for my brushes (which the exception of LM, who makes the best brushes I've ever used, well worth the money). I finally bit the bullet and bought this brush and am glad I did. If you're going to use a gel, I think this a great brush to use. You can get either a thin flat line or a thicker, well-pointed line. Great brush for creating a multitude of looks. I get a lot of use out of this with my LM Caviar e/l and my beloved Chanel la Ligne cake. BB's gels are great for no-brainer days when I just want a liner on and not to have to worry about it. They can fade though and lose a crispness as the day goes on that most liquids retain. I love my LM Caviar as it's overall feel =sheer cashmere sweater for your eyes. Very sexy and subtle, perfect for a night in but can be fussy to maintain. Chanel la ligne is just perfection and this brush lets you (again) get a thinner line for the inner eye or thicker line for the outer edges. If you're an e/l type of person I'd recommend this brush for many other products besides just gels. I take good care of this brush and am wary of how I clean the bristles, so treat it gently and no splaying.

I purchased this brush on a recommendation for use with Lattise. This brush is flat on the sides (like a bugs wing), not like a circle with a cut off top as pictured. Overall, the bristles are soft, the sides allow for picking up a lot of product (good if you want to do a wingy cat eye), but really, I cannot justify spending this much on a brush that you can find elsewhere.

Great for precision application of Gel Liners, however it's not as precise as you can get. I don't think ultra fine is an accurate name for this, but this does the job for a nice clean defined line for your upper eye lid and lower eye lid/lash line. I think with careful application, this product can replicate the job a liquid liner is expected to do.
Overall quality of this product is great, it doesn't shed and the quality remains the same, no matter how long you've had it for :)

Amazing brush. I have never been able to control and master any brush like I have with this one. My lines look absolutely flawless and it's so easy to use! HG for eyeliner aplication. Honestly.

I tried to branch out a little from pencil and thought gel might be a little easier than liquid so I got the Violet Ink gel eyeliner and this brush from Bobbi Brown.
It has taken me a really long time to figure out ways to apply the eyeliner well and I persisted with this brush because it was so expensive and I thought it MUST work well or they wouldn't be selling it.
It seemed very easy to use and very precise when I practiced on the back of my hand but on my eyes I had trouble getting an even line, getting a dark enough line (going over a line just seemed to take off the colour that was there leaving me with a grey smudge), applying the line close enough to my lashes....
I eventually gave up and used a (very cheap) flat, angled brush from Ruby & Millie. It worked great and rescued the gel eyeliner for me (which was also expensive but the colour looked so good against green eyes). The only problems I have with gel eyeliner now are a matter of practice.
On a good note, my Bobbi Brown brush retained its shape very well through quite a lot of washing.
