To have that awesome smokey effect, first you need the right tools and second you need is good practice. I tried to smudge my black kohl with the tip of my fingers and it never gave me the desired effects. That is when, I decided that I need the smudger brush in my life. So, here is the review of Zoeva 226 Smudger Eye Brush.
The brush comes in a really soft plastic zipper bag. Also, the brush is packed in a plastic cover, wherein the bristles are carefully covered with a thick plastic casing. The number and name of the brush is written at the back of the zipper as well as on the brush.
Zoeva 226 Smudger Eye Brush is the perfect eye brush for a smoky eye effect. This handcrafted brush with short, vegan synthetic bristles provides maximum color control and covers up eye shadow and kohl pencil lines. An absolute must for the smoky effect and seductive cat eyes. A true professional.
My Experience with Zoeva 226 Smudger Eye Brush:
Zoeva 226 Smudger Eye Brush is a small stunted eye brush, basically for creating those flawless smoky eyes. The length of the brush is 15.8cm and the bristles are made of soft vegan taklon hair. The bristles here are short and steady, hence making it easy to smudge the eyeshadow or the kohl along the lash line and waterline. Here, the bristles are black at the base and more of white at the ends. The bristles are very closely held and hence, it holds great amount of product and deposits the same with ease on the lash line or the waterline.
The smudger is a perfect brush to apply and blend eyeshadows and kohl. The shape of the brush helps in shading and creating those flawless smoky eyes. I have used it on my waterline to smudge my kajal and since the bristles are extremely soft, you will not experience any pricking sensation.
The brush handle is in black colour and has a nice smooth, glossy, shiny finish. The handle is quite long and sleek but not heavy and fits in your hand, perfectly. Although, it is smooth in finishing the grip is very good and it does not slip from the hands.
I cleaned it twice and have not noticed any bristle damage or fall. It remains soft as ever. The kind of flawless smokey effect it gives, is what I was looking for. There are a number of brushes available in the market in comparison with the Zoeva 226 Smudger Eye Brush, but this one is very affordable along with the results it gives.
