As you may have noticed from reading my reviews of late I am a fan of Stila make up brushes and that I have been fortunate to collect most of them recently as they have available for purchase at a very cheap price from a local market store I found. I snapped up as many of them up as I could due to the fact I already owned a couple of them and knew not only what fabulous quality they were already but how much the rrp is usually on these items. This as an example can be found online for around the £12.00 mark but I'd never pay that for one brush to be honest and I paid just £2.50 for mine!
The Brush Itself:
Like most of the other make up brushes I own this is long handled and matt black in colour with silver writing on the side of it telling us that it is indeed a Stila Brush then to near the top of it there is a silver metalic piece that holds the brush head in it securely. The brush head is made of natural pony hair (hence the price of course!) and is small and slightly stiff but very smooth and soft at the same time and none poky (if that makes sense lol).
The idea with this brush is to apply wet eyeliners with it from a pot or whatever. I bought one just after I bought this brush to try out and to see if I get better and more dramatic results than using a kohl pencil or a felt tip eyeliner which I usually use for nights out.
This brush is simply fantastic. It lifts out damp/wet eyeliners easily from their pots and providing you have a steady hand makes it easy to apply eyeliner and frame the eyes. No bristles malt or stick out giving a clean looking application and when I've done using it I simply rinse it out and allow it to dry naturally to keep it fresh, clean and germ free. If your usually good at applying eyeliner freehand then this is the perfect tool in my opinion and I must admit that if I lost this make up brush I would pay the full price for this one. Its fabulous quality, easy to use and I've had no problems with it all so it gets a giant thumbs up from me!
