Double-Ended Precision Brush
Worth the price just for the pointed end alone!
The pointed end of this brush is a daily must for me! It works beautifully to add a softer, thicker, and smokier line along the lashes. I use this to apply a soft sweep of my liner shadow, before I use the Heavenly Liner Blending Brush to add a darker, more precise line on top. This creates a gorgeous depth to my lashes and makes my blue eyes stand out even more!
Even though the other end of this brush is listed as "contour shadow" it is very different than the Contour Shadow Brush that is available on its own. This brush head is smaller and more compact than the normal one so I find it works perfectly for applying the READY eye shadows (and I use my normal Contour Shadow Brush for medium coverage on the loose eye shadows).
Storing Double Ended Brushes in a Vertical Holder
I love ALL of my BE Brushes! But everytime I think I have a favorite, I see and then try a new tip and/or trick for another brush!
To store my double ended brushes in a vertical container, I use adhesive backed hook and loop tape, (Velcro). First, lay your brushes out flat, allowing enough space in between, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Cut a piece of the LOOP side of the tape, long enough to cover the width of double ended brushes as you arranged them flat. Next, I cut small strips of the HOOK tape and adhere to the middle of each brush. Adhere the LOOP strip to the inside (or outside!) of your container, making sure to allow enough room from the bottom to attach each brush to the strip without the brush touching the bottom! No more bent bristles!
I wanted to like this, I really did, but the larger end was very scratchy. The finer end was perfect for the crease and would have been the perfect travel brush. Unfortunately this expensive brush is going to the bottom for my makeup bag.
A Must Have
I absolutely love this brush for eyeshadow. I use the wider end for the darker color in the crease and the more pointed end for the lighter color under the eyebrow and across the lid. It is a great buy!
Great brush to carry w/you for various jobs
I love this brush duo!! The two heads can accomplish almost anything you want, except maybe thin eyelining (although even that you could do with the precision/liner end if you're careful, especially if you wet it).
It's the perfect brush to carry w/you, particularly if you only want to have to carry one.
Tiny whine: I wish the tube for the smaller end was a little bigger around -- it is so close to the width of the brush where the hairs are that I just CANNOT get the point back in without having some of the hairs on that end bent back. So I stopped using the tubing -- problem is, now I can't stand this brush up in my normal brush-holder cup, because one end or the other will get mushed up on the bottom. :(
