My Take on Basicare Eyeshadow Brush Medium:

Before starting with the review, I just want to confess here that I have a major problem of misplacing my things and then not able to find them easily.  The same happened with my 20-piece bush kit that I bought and reviewed also. I kept it somewhere safely and forgot. 😛 So, I was left with just 3-4 eyeshadow brushes and I bought this eye shadow brush along with the Faces one too as these are cheap and easily available online.

Now, coming to this eye shadow brush, for me Basicare is a relatively new name in the field of makeup products. It has almost all necessary makeup brushes and tools readily available. As I was on a lookout specifically for an eyeshadow brush, I just bought this one.

The brush is medium length with rather larger bristles that are made up of nylon. It is quite soft to touch and feel and does not irritate the eyes at all while in use. The shape of the bristles make it suitable for placing color easily on the complete eyelid.  I mean this brush is best suited for packing eyeshadow on the eyelid and not particularly useful for blending out the eyeshadow in the crease.

If you see the shape of the bristles, then you can easily understand the use of this brush. The bristles are densely packed, but end up in the same length that makes the shape quite thin and which hinders it from being used for blending the eyeshadows. Even if you try to use it for blending, it may feel a little stiff for that. The Faces eyeshadow brush does a better job for blending the eyeshadows.

L-R: Faces eyeshadow brush and Basicare eyeshadow brush.

The brush does an excellent work in picking up enough color and packing the color onto the eyes. Even the shape of the bristles makes it quite easy to mark the exact outline of your eyes and applying eyeshadow there. I even use it to apply eyeshadow on the lower lash line and it does a decent job there too. :whistle:

The brush is quite sturdy with densely-packed bristles that do not shed at all after washing.  My Faces one did shed 1-2 bristles after a wash but this one did not. :yes:


On the left side is the Basicare eyeshadow brush. See the densely-packed bristles and right side is the Faces brush which shows 1-2 bristles shedding.

All in all, I am happy to purchase this brush. It is a cheap yet effective eyeshadow brush and a good brush for beginners as well as not so professional people like me. 😉

Pros of Basicare Eyeshadow Brush Medium:

  • Effective to pack color on the lid.
  • A great brush to outline the eye shape properly.
  • Sturdy brush that does not shed any bristles after wash.
  • Soft to feel and touch.
  • Cheap.
  • Easily available.

Cons of Basicare Eyeshadow Brush Medium:

  • Does not do the blending task well.
  • A little stiff if used for blending.


3.25/5 (for the work it does, price and availability).

Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend?

Well, one is enough for me (now I have 6 eye makeup brushes), but I do recommend it to all the others. It does quite a decent and neat job.
