Until I fell in love with It Cosmetics brushes, Smashbox brushes were my standby for eyes. However, Shadow Brush 32 is one that nothing else has been able to replace. It has the perfect shape and fluffiness to be very versatile- I often use it in place of a crease brush because I can also use it on the corners of my eyes as well, all in one step.
This tried-and-true brush picks up and deposits color very efficiently. The natural hairs require a bit more care than synthetic ones. Needless to say, this is a brush I just cannot part with, and I have several back-ups.
The Smashbox Shadow Brush 32 retails for $24.00.
