Review: Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush


I've been eyeing on the Edward Bess Luxury Eye brush for more than 6 months now and have read nothing but positive feedback about this brush.


I bought this brush with the intention of using it for my face because I knew it was going to be too big for my eye area. If you have a big eye area, then you could use the Edward Bess brush to add a light wash of color onto the lids, to define the crease, and to blend. I have no problem using the Edward Bess brush to blend my eyeshadows, but it's too big as a crease brush. The Sigma E45 brush is more suitable for me as a crease brush because it is much smaller and more tapered than the Edward Bess brush.


The Edward Bess brush is just as soft as my Sigma E45, but not as soft as my Sonia Kashuk Black Small Multi Purpose brush. (They are by no means scratchy.) The bristles are also a little bit firmer and not as fluffy as the Sonia Kashuk one (review); therefore, the former is more ideal for blending, while the latter is more ideal for applying product, such as highlight on top of the cheekbones. I mainly use the Edward Bess brush for applying setting powder around the small crevices of my nose when I want more coverage or for blending out sharp lines when I contour my nose.



Another thing that I would like to mention is that the brush came in a velvet pouch and not in a luxurious box, which I saw other people receive. It's not a huge issue, since the box was going to be useless to me anyways, but I thought I would point it out to any potential buyers out there.

Note: Total Length: 6.25 inches. It can be purchased at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Edward Bess'  main website.

I would love to know how you use this brush. =)
