Wet/Dry Shadow Brush
Perfect brush for foiling
I often foil my eyes when I go out and discovered this little brush. It's perfect for the job, really compact yet holds a lot of colour and gets it on your eye well. Really good investment if you like foiling!
All-Around Eye Brush
I love this brush. I apply highlighter shadow under the brow and color to the eyelid using this brush. It puts on a sheer but good saturation of color without irritating my skin. I use it with the loose and Ready shadows without any problems. I just swirl, tap, and buff with the loose and only tap and buff with the Ready :)
Why didn't I buy this sooner??
For a long time I was using a different brand of eye shadow brush to apply my bare mineral eye shadows; this brush applies my eye colours so much more evenly! I am a big fan of foiling and this brush is absolutely perfect, makes it so effortless to apply perfect eye makeup! Also great for blending and buffing.
I do not like BE's wet/dry shadow brush. The bristles are too hard against the delicate skin of my eyes and the bristles shed, too. I couldn't find a good use for this brush at all.
Just an average applicator brush.
I needed an applicator brush that would apply my base eye-colour all over the socket of my eye, and when I discovered that this Shadow Brush can be used dry and wet, it was a bonus!
I initially used this applicator brush to apply only my base eye-colour, however I wanted to try it wet to see if it performed as expected. It is a soft brush when dry, but when wet it became slightly 'scratchy' - perhaps I wet the brush too much and in turn used too much eye-colour, when in fact the Shadow Brush should only be damp, but I'm not sure. Nevertheless, the control of this applicator brush is good.
Overall, the Wet/Dry Shadow Brush is what you expect of a standard dry-use applicator brush. I would recommend it for those who like the 'foiled' look - other than that, I'd suggest buying a more affordable applicator brush.
This was one of the first brushes I owned. I needed a lot of control since I was learning how to apply mineral makeup. It gives you that control, wet or dry. The bristles are firmly packed so you don't have to worry about power flying around everywhere. The powder goes where you want it to.
Easy and Useful
I've had my brush for at least 4 years and it has yet to fail on me. I can lay on the color or do a light dusting enough for a hint of color if I want. I really enjoy this product. Is it bad that I RARELY think about the price anymore because I know that BM/BE products are reliable? lol. I do shop with a bargainer's eye, but This brush is worth it.
My suggestion? Collections, duos, sets, gifts....why spend hundreds when you can save hundreds, right? Especially if you're new to this. Check out the Last Chance areas. I saw a blush there for 6.50 that used to be 22 bucks....great deal! BUT The READY solid blush powder is coming March 1st so I'm going to wait until then because I want something new and I know I can get great quality if I just wait a week and spend a little more that will last for a long time.
The best brush for eyes!
This has come to be my favorite eye brush. The bristles are tight enough to give excellent coverage, but the brush head is small enough to allow for precision. I enjoy using it for both wet and dry looks although it makes foiling MUCH easier. I do have some problems with fallout while I apply, but it isn't enough to bother me, and it could be user error. :) Great brush!
One of my best brushes
I have been slow to add more BE brushes to my collection, because i believe i have some pretty good ones. However, some of the more fan shaped brushes i have that are NOT BE, tend to send my color going everywear, wheter its my BE mineral colors or some normal drug store eyeshadow. So i looked into this to use for my Queen Marie eyesahdow(Which i adore!) because my oher brushes dont foil so well with it. It works brilliantly! The hard bristles really put the color onto your eyes and not your eyes nose and cheeks, whether its a dry or wet color! it holds onnto those minerals well and it really distributes the color. I have found it works better to lightly pres the color onto the lid until it all comes of the brush, then use a sweeping motion to even it out. i love it, and now i need more(:
