Product Review: Sonia Kashuk, Large Crease Brush

I got this way back (October 2009) on a trip to the other side of the island to Target. A trip that is about 3 hours each way, and NO I didn’t just go on the trip for target. It was on a whim and we were just bored. Everyone raves about Sonia Kashuk brushes, especially her eyeshadow brushes so I had to purchase it. I’ve heard Queen of Blending and BaylovesPow raving about this specific brush, the Large Crease Brush.

Product: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Quality: 4.5 out of 5
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
Price: $5.99
Available: Target
Would I buy this again? Yes

Pros: Very affordable and the brush is pretty good for the price you pay. It’s a dense crease brush that is similar to Mac’s 217 except that the bristles are shorter and it has less of a tapered end than the 217. The packaging is great, something to slip the brush when traveling, so no separate purchase needs to be made. Why can't MAC do this? instead of those flimsy plastic bags.

Cons: A bit scratchy. The bristles are not as soft as Mac’s crease blending brushes. The quality reminds me of Mac’s holiday/travel brushes…they’re a bit scratchy.

Overall: I think it’s a good product and it’s a brush I would repurchase. I use this brush primary to apply and blend my transition color in every look I do. So yes I do grab this brush pretty often.

Brush comparisons: Mac's 226, Mac's 217, Mac's 224, and Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush

out of those 4 which is your fave blending brush? i've been using all kinds of blending brushes, but my best work comes from the beloved 217 (for overall blending).
