Wet/Dry Shadow Brush
Great for wet-dry eyeliner application
I use this everyday when I apply eyeliner. It's great for applying liner powder (wet or dry), but also for blending a crayon-based liner. It works for foiling as well, and I also get a lot of use from it when I try to do a smoky or cat eye. It's a slim, tiny little brush so you can just slip it in your makeup bag for travel without the bulk. If I could only bring one brush with me for travel, I'd use this one because it's useful for shadow, and for applying liner. I've also had luck with it for highlighting/contouring--dip it in your warmth or bronzer powder, and run it along the bridge of your nose. Makes it look smaller!
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 :)
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(:
