Essence Smokey Eyes Brush


Honestly finding the perfect crease brush seemed pretty hard for me. Seeing as though I had the typical Asian eyes, small eyes and a bit of the hooded eyelid. Finding a crease brush that was inexpensive and fitted my crease took a while to find. Luckily while I was searching through Essence online, I found out that they sold this Smokey Eyes Brush! I found mine at Priceline for $2.55, I know they also sell this at Target if you don't have a Priceline store near you :) 


At first when I saw this I thought it was a small eyeshadow brush which made me not get it. But up close it looks like a small crease brush (although don't take my word for it since im not a brush expert) 


So the back it shows you how to do a makeup look using the Essence Smokey Eyes Brush and other of their products too!


I actually really like the packaging! The handle is a matte black and it has the Essence logo in purple.


Now the brush itself is a dark purple colour. The bristles are more rounded in person than in the picture, now when I first felt the bristle it felt so soft! Probably not the softest I've felt but pretty standard in brushes.
When I used it, it was prefect for applying eyeshadow to the outer V and crease, though it might take longer to blend with but its just right for my eyeshape! 
Sadly the bad news to this product was that it did start shedding. But it didn't really bother me that much since I'll be buying another one as a back up! :D
