This brush is pretty good. I hate to be the one here saying I hate this because I don't and I use it every time I wear eyeliner but I really cant say I love this. I don't know why but personally I find it seems a little floppy. But it has held up really well for it being like a year old.

I don't know where I've been, but this is the first bent eyeliner brush I've ever owned and I am pretty floored by how easy it makes applying product.
Price--super. I think I paid $6 at Target.
Packaging--decent. The brush comes with one of those small plastic sleeves over the bristles that gets lost within three days of opening the package.
Application--great. This is my first foray into using a separate brush for eyeliner (normally use wand products) and it really makes it so easy to get right on the lashline. Works great and so far I don't see a need to shell out big bucks to get one that's more name brand.

I hate to be the downer here but I don't like this brush at all. I found the bristles to be too floppy and long to create a thin line. It didn't give me much control to do a cat eye or even just a flick. I'd prefer bristles a bit shorter and stiffer. I do love the bent angle feature as you can see what you are doing as you are doing it.

I'm a total klutz while applying make-up. Eyeliner is the only eye make-up I can apply and I love a good cat eye with my intense lip colour. Totally chic! This brush is the best thing for applying gel eyeliners. Easy to control and the angled brush makes it easy for you to watch what you're doing. I would have liked the brush to be a little stiffer though.
It's pretty cheap so it does fray a bit and shed after some months, even though I rarely use it, but overall, a great buy!
Update: I've had this for about 3-4 years. It frays and sheds quite a bit and I don't know how much longer it will be effective.

simple but effective brush. the bristles stay together tightly and i have total control over my line. i bought this along with the other sonia k eyeliner brush and i have to say i'm happy with both. actually the white handle makes it easy to spot and pull out of my brush jar which is nice. totally worth the price. if/when need a new one i wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

EDIT 3/22/13: Ever since discovering Sephora's Pro Gel Eyeliner #26, I rarely touch the SK one anymore. Actually I love it so much for eye lining or concealer, I own 3!
Chinese hooded eyes. Gel liner girls, GET THIS NOW!
I'm slowly deleting old reviews, as I update them (above was written Jan'12). Oc't12, this is just the right stiffness for point concealing. Will now have to purchase a 2nd for both purposes.

Amazing brush for applying gel eyeliner, I picked this up thanks to recommendations from other reviewers and am not disappointed!! It makes it so easy to apply a thin line or build a thicker line if desired.

I'm writing this to compare the two bent eyeliner brushes that one can pick up at Target: SK vs. E.L.F.
Obviously, the Sonia Kashuk is built much sturdier and looks a lot nicer. The bristles are dense and the brush head is longer than the E.L.F one. The E.L.F is part of their Studio line, which means it's around $3, cheaper than the SK.
If you need a bent eyeliner brush to TIGHTLINE with, that's the biggest different for me with these two brushes. I have a harder time getting the SK brush between my lashes because of it's longer bristles; but it's those longer bristles that make it much better for drawing cat-eyes! The E.L.F brush comes to a smaller point, which makes it good for precision work.
I own and use both. I love the SK for lining my upper and lower lashlines or drawing cat-eyes, and the E.L.F for tightlining. The SK is a great brush and definitely worth picking up.

This makes using a gel eyeliner so easy. You can see the line you are drawing since it is angled. If anything, I would say this is ergonomic.

I've been wearing cake or gel eyeliner for over 10 years and thought the angled brush was the best way to put it on. I kept seeing these reviewers saying they thought the same thing until they tried this brush and for about $6 I thought why not. This is the best way to put on eyeliner, hands down. I get a smooth line with the most control I have ever had. I can make an ultra thin tight line or thicken up as I see fit. Makes that perfect swoop at the end for a cat-eye look. And its cheap. I washed mine-gently as you should-last night just to see if it would fray. while it was still wet i shaped it with a tissue and let it dry. It still had a perfect point when it finished drying.

I just started doing looks using a gel liner, so I decided to pick up a liner brush. Love that it's bent, makes it super easy to use. Def would repurchase! :)

I love this brush! I use it with the Sonia Kashuk liner palette, and it works amazingly. I have small eyes, so I need small liner brushes to give me more precision. Otherwise I end up looking like I applied my liner with an eyeshadow brush. I loved that it's bent because it makes it so much easier to apply liner. I've also used it with a gel liner (and it was even a cheap E.L.F. liner), and it worked well with that too. I also love the quality of these brushes. I love white brushes, and for a while I used the E.L.F. ones, but they were cheaply made (like painted wood that scratched off), but these are plastic and hold up really well.

This brush is a great alternative to more expensive ones. It makes it so easy to draw on winged eyeliner and is the perfect size. Readily available at most targets and lasts forever.

Why haven't I heard about the wonders of this brush?
Let me just say, that MUA members are usually on the cutting edge of these things. That is exactly why I find myself repeatedly reading through the site and LUV doing it! You learn so much.
This brush is:
~$6 and so economical
~Nice bristles which remain contained together instead of fly-by-ways
~Draws a perfect line with MAC Blacktrack and the tail of the wing is created SO MUCH EASIER with this brush!
~This brush out performs those brushes that are 4 times the cost or more!
~So cheap that going back for a couple more would be a good idea.
Luv, luv, luv!

I own two of these brushes. They apply my gel eyeliner so perfectly, and they keep their shape pretty well. For $6 they are a steal.

I am still wondering why I didn't purchase this brush earlier. I have wasted lots of money on trying to find the perfect eyeliner brush. This is stiff, yet soft on your eye. Its bent so you can see what you are applying. Works perfect with any gel liner. You can also use it to correct your liquid liner if you mess up. And its very cheap, as compared to other high end brands. Get it, you won't regret it!

AWESOME eyeliner brush. I use this with my mac fluidline and it creates an amazing line. I was using the mac 209 brush that came with a holiday set my aunt gave me but this is alot better! It wasnt expensive at all, i got mine from ebay. I love the white handle and that its a BENT eyeliner brush. Plus its easy to clean.

This puts my Mac 209 and 210 to shame........

Gives me a perfect, crisp line every time. This brush makes applying cream eyeliner on my stubborn monolids a breeze. I just clean it off with tissue after every use and wash every week, and it's in great condition. I'd repurchase as long as this brush is made.

This brush is awesome! It is very easy to apply gel eyeliner with it and i suck at applying eyeliner. It is cheap and easy to get because they sell it at target. It is easy to clean this brush and i would buy this over and over as long as i need a brush.
