Not pleased with this brush at all. I had to do a lot of smudging to get the effect I like. I quit using this brush after using it twice.

I know there are a lot of people out there that like these brushes, but I sure have been having bad luck with them. I wasn't sure if I would really use a smudge brush enough to buy a Trish one, so I thought I would start with Sonia and maybe work my way up if the brush became a staple. The bristles were okay--not particularly great. The thing that bugs me is that the brush fell apart after only 1 use. The metal was not fitted correctly to the wood. I used superglue to try to get it to hold--with no luck. I don't have a Targe close to me--and for the price it wasn't really worth the drive back for a refund. I'll be saving up for a Trish brush--as I like the way a smudge brush works and want one that at least will last beyond one use!

I've got the white one, the size is good and it does the job but I find it to be too scratchy, I hate that, maybe I'm over sensitive, but I don't like it for that reason, I gave it away.

I do have to agree, that for the price (approx $3.99, I believe) it is a passible brush IF you do not have to use this brush on a regular basis. Frankly, the brush hair is rather sparse in my opinion. After a month of using it around 5x's a week it is already tired and ready for the garbage. No big deal, you might say, its only 4 bucks! However, I still have the first pro makeup brush I ever bought (a Stila #15) and after 15 years of regular use it is still going strong. No splaying, no shedding. From my approximation, this brush has cost me .15 cents a month so far. You do the math:). continued >>

Interesting. Works great at first, but then it started to weather. Soon the metal part and the wooden part separated!! I was so mad.. so I bought another one.. which did the same thing! I switched to MAC.. better quality! :)

Okay, so this brush is labeled as a smudge brush but I don't use it for smudging. I find it too flimsy and thin for a smudge brush. (Uploaded a pic) What I do use this for, is putting black shadow on top of my waterline eyeliner. It's perfect for that purpose, but for actual smudging, I don't find it that useful. It's too thin and flimsy to really smoke out or smudge eyeshadow, you would need a thicker more dense brush for smudging. Maybe the other white one is more useful? I'm not sure why there is a white one and a black one. But I'm reviewing the black odd shaped handle one. I also don't really like the packaging this brush came in. It came in a total separate plastic casing, which may look professional when you buy it, but useless afterward. So it just goes straight to the trash. :/
I wouldn't re-purchase. I'll look into the Studio Tools smudge brush that I heard was good.

It's a great product for the price. I primarily use this when I want a line of shadow directly on my upper or lower lashline. It creates a soft, feathered look but not TOO soft like the MAC 219. I don't suggest using this if you want a harsh line because it's not firm enough for that and from my experience, angled liners are better for a harsh line. I also can't see it working for gel/cream application due to the lack of firmness. I also use it to apply eyeshadow to my waterline because it's soft enough for such a delicate and sensitive area and the slightly domed shape is just perfect for it. In terms of smudging eyeliner, I think this does a mediocre job. Like I said, it's not that firm and I believe a firmer brush of the same shape would be better. It's not a big deal to me though because I hardly ever smudge eyeliner and I use this brush primarily for other purposes. I've had this for at least a few weeks and I haven't experienced any problems with the handle or bristles. I'm not sure if I would repurchase though.

The brush is too hard because it has short bristles. It hurts my eye. I don't use it for smudging anymore. I use the nicely packaged and fairly priced product for applying a thin strip of eye shadow. I would personally go for a sponge-type smudger after buying and using this product.

I got this brush because the back said that it was good for a subtle eyeliner look. It was great for that the first time I used it. Then I washed it in some soap and warm water (as recommended) and it just hasn't regained it's shape. Now it can't really do a precise line. So this brush didn't really work out the way that I had hoped.
