I have been using this brush for years. The wide side is good for applying color to lid. The pointy side I use to apply color to inner or outer corners, blending into crease and applying highlight. Whatever I'm in the mood for that day!
I just got another one for $1.75. They must be discontinuing.

I only like the flat shadow side, not the pointy side. The flat brush side is good for packing on eyeshadow, but it had a strong, weird plastic smell that I don't like. I don't know if the brush that I got was a consistency error, but I tried using the pointy side, and it was prickly and it was poking my eyelid as I was putting on eyeshadow in my crease. I only like the flat shadow …Read more

I was a bit iffy about buying a brush from drugstore because I was scared it might be bristly and harsh, but I'm glad to find out it's actually soft and doesn't irritate my eye when I apply eyeshadow. Both brushes on either side of the end works very well; I use the wider brush for my brow bone and the smaller one for e/s on eyelids. One thing that does bother me is that it's …Read more

Oddly enough, this is one of my favourite brushes. I seem to reach for it more often than any of my MAC brushes.
I use the thick end to do a wash of color on the lid and up into my crease. (I have hooded eyes and often fake a cut crease by overlapping my lids a bit.) Occasionally, I run this brush along the browbone for highlighting. Another brush might be better suited for that, but this …

I absolutely love this brush and I use it everyday when I do my makeup. I use the fluffy wide end to highlight my browbone and it works great for that purpose. The wide end is soft and dense and it distributes the highlight perfectly on my brow bone. I also use this end to blend out the harshlines between my crease and highlight because the brush is large and soft enough for that purpose. I use …Read more

I don't find use for either side of this brush, because one side is way too large and fat for my lid, and the other is too short and dense for my liking. Also, the side with the fat shader brush fell off ...

I have tons of makeup brushes, yet this one is the one I use everytime I put eyeshadow on. Doesn't shed, it's soft and it's cheap. What else could you ask for?

I love this brush but after a while, I didn't find the double-ended brush thing very convenient. I store my brushes upright in a container and I could not do that with this brush - I had to lay it flat somewhere else. Eventually I had to choose one of the sides. The big fluffy side won - I ripped off the crease side and the fluffy side joined my army of upright-stored brushes. The crease …Read more

I use the large side of this brush every day for highlighting my brow bone. It works perfectly -- it doesn't diffuse the color too much, but I can quickly apply the color to the whole area. The other side is great, too, for applying crease color or smoking out liner, but I just honestly forget it's there.
