I had purchased these brushes by Sonia Kashuk a while back and wanted to use them for a while before I could review them.. The brushes are:
1. Sonia Kashuk Tools No. 20 LARGE DOMED EYE SHADOW BRUSH – This is a round, fluffy eye brush.. I use it most for blending, not so much for applying the eyeshadow.. It is quite soft and comfortable to use around the delicate eye area.. Made from all natural 100% cruelty free goat hair.. costs $9.59-$12.19 at Target.
2. Sonia Kashuk SYNTHETIC CREASE SHADOW BRUSH – This is a smaller, stiffer, round edged brush.. I use this most for applying concealer around my eyes, nose and mouth.. It can also be used to apply eyeshadow to demarcate the crease of the eye..
It is not the softest brush I have ever used but it does not poke the skin around the eyes.. Made of synthetic nylon – cost around $9.49-$10.79 at Target… I would pass on this and spend that money on a Real Techniques brush instead..
Overall, these make a decent addition to my growing brush collection.. I much prefer the Real Techniques brushes, especially considering they are around the same price range.. 🙂
I have been dying to try brushes by Louise Young cosmetics and here are the ones I am planning to get some day.. 🙂
LY20 Super Fan £26.00
LY24 Fine Eyeliner Sable £11.00
LY501 Essential Eyeshadow Palette £30.00
LY38A Tapered Shadow Brush £16.00
LY24B Ultrafine Liner £9.00
They are kinda pricey but from what I hear, they are well worth it.. Hoping to get my hands on them this year.. 🙂
Let me know if any of you have tried LY brushes and what your thoughts are on them.. Thanks..
