This is the only brush that I ever use around my eye area, it is so soft and applies my make up great .Havent used any other brush in over 20 years !!!
This Pur Minerals Crease brush works well for the price you pay for it. Generally speaking $18 is a lot to spend on a makeup brush, at least in this time of recession. It is a fluffy dome crease brush that works alright for blending, but unfortunately will never compare to MAC's 224.
Every time I use it the hairs fall out of the brush and I am not happy about that. With new brushes the hairs tend to fall out, and that's normal. But even after cleansing the brush many times and using it frequently the hairs still fall out. Not good. Also the hairs are not very soft at all, especially since I have sensitive eyes. I find them quite rough. I also find that it blends very harshly and takes away a lot of my eyeshadow and I have to re-apply most times. I want to blend the the shadow's together, not wipe them away completely.
But if you want a cheap alternative to MAC's 224, then this will do the job. But must say, when blending, don't press too hard, blend more gently so your shadow's still stay vibrant and don't look very washed out.
