I am not gifted at eyeshadow application, especially the outer v. I always applied too much product and everything ended up looking like one big blobby mess instead of a nice, smooth, pretty transition of beautiful colors on my lid. Enter these brushes. You see that teeny tiny one there? Yeah that one. That one is my best bud in the universe. If anyone ever tried to take my tiny little friend there, they would at the very least get a flip flop thrown at them, at the most end up with a swollen knuckle.
These brushes are cheap in price, but that's where it ends. They are soft, and have survived many many MANY washings (I am fanatical about clean makeup brushes). They maintain their shape, do not shed, and the ferrule has never come loose on either brush, EVER.
I use the bigger of the two brushes for doing a crease sweep and/or lid wash (yes I'm odd....don't hate, it's how I do things), and that teeny little brush for drawing on a perfect outer v that I blend in perfectly with my beloved MAC 217 (another brush that will earn you a flip flop smack if you try to take it). I. freaking. love. these. brushes. These little guys are definitely my favorites.
If you have issues with drawing your outer v or other precision detailing on your eyeshadow, get this brush set. You will not be disappointed.
