I own alot of make up brushes, particulary Stila ones. This one I bought a long time ago for a bout a fiver in T.J Hughes way before it closed down now though I have found this same brush retailing at about £24.00 (Google online if interested).
The Brush Itself:
Its a very long this one 4 x 5 x 6 inches and with a weight of 0.2 ounces so its lightweight. Its got a slim black handle with '9' (Thats the brush number from the collection which is massive) Stila Brush written up the side of it in silver writing then it has the a longish brush which is soft and made of natural black goat hair which is attached to the black handle via a silver section which is really secure. It a nice looking brush this one and even though I use and wash mine often (with a bit of baby shampoo and then i leave it to dry naturally which takes less than half an hour) it still looks a good as the day I first bought it.
What Is this Brush For?:
Well this is an all over blending brush for the eyes. You can use it for applying a single colour, for blending a smoky eye or to simply get two colours to meet and blend well.
This is simply a fabulous brush. The brush itself is as I mentioned very soft however it is slightly fluffy as well so not great for precision eye work which isn't what its designed for anyway and like I say this is a blending tool.
I like to use this when I've applied a colour to my bottom lid and then a lighter colour to the top meeting the brow bone with an eyeshadow brush and gently swipe this on the eyes between the colours so I get no harsh lines. The end is slightly pointed so I can use that to touch up things as I go as well.
All in all this is a fabulous brush. I wouldn't personally pay about £24.00 for it I have to be honest but if you can find it as cheap as I did then its brilliant. For me its the just the price that lets it down however if money isn't an object and this is the kind of brush you want then you won't go wrong with it, its all round greatness!
