Bargain Brushes: Essence Eye Blender Brush!
Sunday, 6 September 2015
Recently I was looking at my local Essence stand, and found this blending brush. It instantly reminded me of MAC's 224 brush, which is a tapered blending brush.
The Essence Eye Blender has incredibly soft bristles - softer than some of my more expensive brushes, in fact. It picks up product really well and blends eyeshadows seamlessly. I normally use it to apply colour to the crease or to blend out the eyeshadows at the end.
I find myself reaching for this brush more than my MAC 217, as I feel like it gives a softer finish and is easier to blend with.
The brush washes well too - I just use regular shampoo and it dries quite quickly, while maintaining its original shape.
The best part of this brush is the price - the Essence Eye Blender Brush is a mere €1.79. So this is your cue - go buy out your local Essence stand!
