Double-Ended Precision Brush
Another Home Run for Bare Escentuals
The soft pointed end is perfect for using 2.0, 4.0 or 8.0 READY eyeshadow colors. When you purchase your READY eyecolors, what's unique is that it comes with a small instructional paper with a day time look and night time look. The pointed end is good for applying a soft and/or smoky effect to the bottom lid (eye liner area) of the eye. The other end is great for tapping and buffing your base color into the eye or your other colors. I've noticed that any of the READY line could use the "tap-buff" method of makeup application. The blush, bronzer, eyeshadow and foundation could use the tap and buff method. The READY concealer is excellent too. Here's a little tip...I recently received my READY eyeshadow 8.0 called The September Issue which is a limited edition, but has 8 colors that you can really play with. The brush inside the 8.0 is a mini version of this brush. So if you get an 8.0 READY eyeshadow palette, you also have the mini version of this brush. It's a great money saver! I hope this information helps everyone. I highly recommend this brush or the Full Tapered Eyeshadow Brush.
First & last
This was one of the first brushes I got from BE. I used it for every eye product. Today it is still my go-to brush for shadow. I am going to try it on the Ready kits, now that someone has mentioned it. Maybe it is time for a new one.
great brush but...
This brush works fantastically for both wet and dry and it's really handy having the two ends. BUT I really don't like the fact that it is made of pony/goat hair, I would much prefer synthetic.
Excellent for My Under-Eye Area
I use both ends, but I really do enjoy the pointed end for putting a light dusting of color under the eye when I want the "halo" effect of the smoky eye with a bright color. It's a soft brush that has lasted me going on four years and gets the job done even with daily use :)
This is a great brush for CONCEALER too!
There are so many reviews about what a great brush this is for eye shadow, and I agree. But this is for sure my go-to brush for concealer. My dark under-eye circles don't stop under my eyes, they continue into the corner of my eyes and the bridge of my nose. When the BE Concealer was introduced I was only getting limited coverage in these eye areas using the full flawless concealer brush. While that brush worked well under my eyes, it was too wide for my inner eye. The pointed end of the Precision Brush worked magically using the least amount of concealer product. BE does have one brush for that purpose, but I use the other end of the Precision Brush to add my Mineral Veil to the same areas! This brush is so versatile and economical, I own two of them. One is dedicated for concealing, the other for eye shadow. These brushes go everywhere I go, they are must-have brushes!
Best eye brush I've EVER used!
If I had to go my entire life using only one eyshadow brush, it would be this one. I'm a huge makeup and brush junkie. I have at least 20 shadow and/or liner brushes. I'm not exxaggerating. My husbad wishes I were, but I'm not. So I've used lots of brushes from lots of brands for lots of reasons. I used to HATE BE eyeshadow, because I could never find a brush that gave a good color payoff. This one was the first. It can also give a soft dusting for using as a highlighter at the browbone. The pointed end can be used really well for eyeliner and smudging. What I love the most though is how well it works as a crease brush. It's great for a flawless, easy smokey eye. If you want a geat multi-purpose brush, this is the one for you. Seriously.
I would rather have bought a different applicator!
For the type of look that I wear on my eyes, I was recommended this applicator brush. I was smitten with the idea of it being a 'professional' brush, but I was not convinced. Although I was not convinced, I still bought it to try it.
It may be that I do not know how to correctly use this product, but I use only one end of this applicator brush. I use only the Contour Shadow Brush end of this applicator brush, and not the pointed end, as I find it too thick to apply Liner Shadow, but too pointed to apply eye-colour. Due to the amount of use that I am getting from this applicator brush, I do not think that it was worth the cost and I would rather have bought a different applicator brush for much less of the cost!
Overall, I would recommend this product to those who know how to use this applicator brush correctly, and not novices like myself! Maybe use will come with experience - I shall do more experimenting and practicing!
This is the best brush i have found for applying eye makeup. Absolutely perfect!!
MY FAVORITE EYE BRUSH
I have used alot of different brushes but this brush is my absolute favorite for shadow and/or liner application. Seriously, it really helps to give a smokey look with your liner and is great at general shadow application. I must have 100 brushes in my collection and this one is my favorite for the eyes.
Great for everyday or special looks
I use this brush for everyday light application, as well as blending and layering of special looks like smoky eye and gradient blending. Both ends are wonderfully soft (I was really worried about the pointed end being too stiff) and hold just the right amount of product.
Tip: This brush changes colors really easily with the Quick Change Brush Cleaner.
