The eye shadow brush is soft yet firm enough to apply the eye shadow in a neat fashion. It can be used in both powder and cream based eye shadow application.
My Experience with Audrey’s Eyeshadow Brush:
Before I tell you about this brush, I will tell you that I am not really an eyeshadow person. I have hooded eyes, which makes eyeshadow application a little tricky for me. I definitely spend most of my time on face and lip makeup and stick to liner/kohl and mascara for my eyes. However, I do own a whole lot of eyeshadows! Until this brush, I never really had a proper eyeshadow brush (although I had a ton of eyeshadow applicators—the spongy kinds that you get with most eyeshadow palettes). Apart from that, I would mostly just use my fingers to apply eyeshadow.
A few months ago, I was making some purchases online and I needed to spend another 50-60 rupees to be entitled to free shipping (all of us online shoppers know how that works). So, I decided to throw in this brush along with the other things I was buying. That’s how I came to acquire it.
Now, about the brush. As per the description, it is a very, very soft brush. The bristles are quite densely packed and the brush is more or less firm. However, what I don’t like about this brush is that even when I use it with a pigmented eyeshadow, it doesn’t pick up much colour and I have to end up using my fingers to bring up the true colour of the eyeshadow. Thus far, I have only used it with dry, powder eyeshadow, but since it is a synthetic brush, it can also be used with cream eyeshadows (and I have a feeling that it is better suited for that purpose).
I also think that this brush is best suited for the application of single eyeshadows across the lid. You would need more precise brushes for the smokey eye look (like an angular blending brush etc.). This brush will only provide very basic eyeshadow application.
As an eyeshadow brush, I find that it is not of much use to me. But for Rs. 55, it isn’t really a waste of money. I’m thinking of using it as a lip brush perhaps or with cream eyeshadows (as and when I acquire some).
Pros of Audrey’s Eyeshadow Brush:
- Very soft brush that is gentle on the eyelids.
- Synthetic brush: can be used with powder or cream eyeshadows.
Cons of Audrey’s Eyeshadow Brush:
- Doesn’t pick up the colour of the eyeshadow very well.
- Can only be used for basic eyeshadow application.
Final Word on Audrey’s Eyeshadow Brush:
This is not a bad brush. It could have been better, that’s all. For its price, it is definitely worth a shot. I think it would end up working well with cream eyeshadows. So, if you don’t have an eyeshadow brush yet and are willing to experiment with one, then you could give this one a shot.
