I'm giving this brush a tentative four lipsticks given the previous reviewers have mentioned fraying within a month's time. I bought two of these ultra fine eye liner brushes (I don't like using the same brush for different gel liner shades) and so far they're holding up. I like the fine point tip of the brush which helps with precision along the lash line and I can do a winged eye look with ease. The bristles are very firm and dense which is expected for this sort of brush. While I don't think you need to spend huge dollars on makeup brushes, this brush isn't as expensive as others and fits my maximum budget amount I'm willing to spend on brushes. Plus with good care, makeup brushes will last for years. If you're wanting a quality eye liner brush and don't mind the price tag, Bobbi Brown's offering is a consideration.

I've had my brush for many years (3+ years) and I love it. I've never used an eye liner brush until this one and I was impressed. I think I paid $20 and I've gotten really good use out of it. I think it's just gotten to the point where it's harder to make a fine line (for wings and such) but I honestly didn't think it would last this long.

I hate this brush so much. It is the worst eyeliner brush they could have possibly designed. It's so thick and soft that its impossible to achieve a thin, clean line. I'm using it as a lip brush instead. le sigh.

This brush was lovely at first but started to fray quite quickly. It's problematic because it dramatically affects the application and fails to deliver the "ultra fine" aspect of its name. I've had it for about three months now, and I only use it maybe once a week, so it can't be the wear that's causing this problem. For an alternative gel eyeliner brush, I'd recommend the MAC 209. It's a point rather than a flat brush, but I've used it with gel liners before and it's worked loads better than this one.

I have owned my brush for more than two years and I havenít had any of the problems other reviewers have had. The bristles are firm and lay down the gel liner very accurately and I havenít had a problem with tugging. I donít wear the gel liner every day, only about once a month, so I only wash the brush about that often (very gently with baby shampoo). All the bristles are still in place and the brush has kept its point very well. It comes with a disposable, protective sleeve to keep the bristles unharmed in transit; I have kept this plastic sleeve on my brush and I think that it why my brush has lasted so well. It would be nice if Bobbi Brown included a non-disposable cap to serve this purpose. The main thing I donít like is that the handle is too long. To apply the liner, I like to get close the mirror and many times I end up hitting the end of the handle into the mirror. Thankfully thatís never resulted in poking my eye or a big, misplaced smudge of liner, but I wouldíve preferred a shorter handle. Still, if needed to, I would buy this again.

This brush was good for one month, then frayed really badly. A shame because it's expensive! I had to get a new one (a different brand) because you just can't do fine lines with a big fat brush!

I've owned three of these brushes, yes three. It seems that I need to replace it roughly every 2-3 years. I take care of my brushes so it bothers me that BB's brushes are so expensive and simply don't last. I've noticed my third isn't looking so good (splayed bristles), so I'm not buying number four, I'm looking elsewhere.

Okay, so I should not have bought this brush because I don't really know how to use liquid eye liner and stuff, that's why I gave it 4 stars to be fair but took one away because of ease of use. I can't use this at all. I always end up with awkward lines so I'm giving up. I guess this is great for people that know how to work with liquid liners and brush. It was basically a waste for me, but one day maybe it will be useful.

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

****Update 5/2013**** This brush does not work with cream formula liners or gel liners with a heavier texture. I can now use it only with the older formula BB gel liners. When I tried to use it with a YSL cream liner it did not apply product evenly or smoothly. It seemed like the bristles were not firm enough. I tried using a maybelline gel liner and had the same experience. Still works great on BB old formula liners but I don't know how the gel liners are since reformulation. If you're not using a very light formula then this would be a poor choice. **** End of Update****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.
