Details

Whether using stila eye shadows wet or dry, a precise, well-defined line is achieved with this long handled, professional brush.

What's it made of? The bristle is pony.

Tips

This is where we draw the line: Directly at the lashes, with a precise pony brush that's used wet or dry. Dampen the narrow brush, load up on the liner color, and then press it against the back of your hand to mold the bristles flat. Use the edge of the brush to draw the color as close to the lashes as possible. To simply enhance the lash line, use this brush dry. The end result is a soft, natural diffusion.

Use with Stila smudge pots or eye shadows.

  1. perfect for smudgepots!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I have the short/mini version of this brush that came with Stila's mini smudgepot sets from a while back. If they're anything alike, then for sure, this brush is probably the only and best brush to use with smudgepots! I have also Bobbi Brown's gel liner brush which is similarly shaped, but you can tell they're honestly just not the same. Smudgepots are dryer and are "cream" liners whereas BB's gel liners are literally that, "gel" and are thinner in texture. Due to this difference, BB's gel liner brush is very fine and thin and are designed to pick up pigment similar to how you'd have calligraphy brushes pick up ink. This brush, however, the hair of it is "thicker" and "rougher" and is designed to pick up a thicker cream (ie something like a thicker/harder brush would be used to pick up, say, oil paint). Therefore I do NOT recommend using BB's gel liner brush for Stila's smudgepot, nor this brush for BB's gel liner. In the former case you're not gonna pick up much pigmentation and end up thinking smudgepots are unpigmented, and in the latter case you're going to end up gouging out chunks of BB's gel liner and end up with a mess on your eyes. lol in any case, when I said this brush's hair is "rougher" in no way do I mean that it is rush on your eyes. just the hair itself is slightly coarser to pick up the cream liner better. On my eyes, it allows the cream liner to glide on smoothly. The shape of it allows good control on my eyelid. I do have to admit, because of the thicker consistency, i think the finished result resembles pencil liner more than liquid (whereas BB's is thinner so the result is more similar to using a liquid liner). However I LOVE the fact that compared to BB's gel liner, using the smudgepot gives me a more natural and more blended look to my lined eyes. There's almost never any hard edge (although it depends on how you apply of course) to my lining. If you want to experience the true awesomeness of smudgepots, you really should try using this brush (just like if you want good BB gel liner experience, DO use their liner, even if it cost a ton!)

  2. perfect for eyeliner

    I have several of the Stila brushes and have found that they are high quality with an excellent value. This particular brush is perfect for applying eye shadow as a liner. You can use the brush dry or wet to get a precise line. I use this one all the time!
