Black-Handled Obsession

Sometimes I sit down to apply my makeup, and I just sigh and think to myself how much I love playing with makeup. Actually, sometimes I yell it out to the hubby...who already knows I'm weird...so, I guess it's not always a thought I keep to myself (more like a thought he wishes I kept to myself).

Anyhoot, a similar thought came the other day when using some of my Sonia Kashuk brushes. I swear these hefty black-handled tools get me every time, and are amongst my favorites.


One of the latest additions to the pack has been the Domed brush. This is perfect for contouring, and also to apply blush. Really, you can use it for whatever your like (as most of her collection is quite multi-purpose), but I feel that it fits into the hollows the cheek perfectly.

Picking up brushes can be a bit addictive, but at the price and quality of Sonia Kashuk brushes, it's even more so. After realizing that the domed brush was such a Godsend, I decided to grab the Large Eyeshadow Brush and Crease Brush. The crease brush is a shorter, denser dome--and works wonders at avoiding a look that has been blended too far off the eye (I know you know what I mean).


This is the only drugstore brush line that I work with, but I'm open to other suggestions as well.Are there any brushes off the beaten (MAC) path that you love?

I've never used Sonia Kashuk brushes but your post sounds very promising that now I MUST give them a try! :) Besides MAC brushes, I also use and love Ecotools brushes. They are amazing and do not shed at all, at least that's how it's been in my experience with them. My sister and I bought the pack which comes with 6 brushes and split them among us. lol They are pretty affordable too!

That crease brush looks interesting, like a cross between a 219 and a blending brush!

Lol @ the beaten path, I gotta say I don't stray from it really! However I do use my sephora brushes (the standard ones, not the platinum range) when I travel for applying eyeshadow and blending, they work just as nicely as the MAC ones!

I've been looking at this range for a while, I have a few of her white handle brushes but wasn't sure if these were any different (apparently they are :) )

I honestly have a mix match of brushes, I really like the ELF brushes surpsingly - they are so super soft. The rest are a mix of high-end and sephora :)

I do like my MAC.. especially for eyebrushes BUT noone has ever been able to duplicate my 5 year old becca brush. Its dual ended and came in a palette and one end is the perfect shadow smudger, precisie eyeliner smudger I have ever found. The other end is perfect for applying light shadow. I have never found better for those two requirements and i use it ever day!!

Tali said...

I also do the random announcing that make-up makes me happy.... and i do always get the raised eyebrow 'duh' look!

Suzanne said...

The article is very helpful, thank you taking the time to share it, good luck...

You should def give 'Eco Tools' a try! You can find them at Walmart, Walgreens and CVS. They are amazing!

Rocaille said...

Definitely try Ecotools! I've found them for really cheap on Amazon - I got the sets with shorter handles, but that hasn't influenced their superb performance in the slightest. I've also seen some in Bartell Drugs, the one near me has the much coveted Alicia Silverstone set on sale for around 5 bucks!

fantastic said...

@ebru: I will definitely be checking into EcoTools..I hear a lot of great things about them, but have never been able to actually play with them (as I don't want to open packages at the drugstore).

@tina_mbc: i do like some of the sephora brushes as well--i only have a few, but am interested in the new ones with the colored/pointy handles!

@ladyb: do you by chance use the white handled eyeshadow brush? there are a few people who use it for everything, but i haven't felt the actual hairs...

@tali: ooh, becca brushes! i've seen you use one in a past tutorial and remember jotting that down in my mind :) i'm relieved to know that someone else bursts out in those "i love makeup" moments...as if anyone would be surprised!

@dye-a-graham: will definitely be checking them out!

@rocaille: i'm seeing a theme here...everyone loves EcoTools! Which Bartells location is that? I checked two tonight, and no such luck!

Blushingloves said...

All of them look so soft and with a handy handle!Going to check them!!
