Pro Angled Eyeliner Brush #23


Pro Angled Eyeliner Brush #23

What it is:This brush lines your lashes with a thin line of color, easily and effectively.What it does:The angled ferrule (the brass part between the handle and the bristles) arches toward your eye, making it easier for you to apply liner on yourself. The bent tip keeps your hands and fingers from getting in the way so you can concentrate on precise application. The synthetic taklon fibers allow you to use with all types of liners.

Question
Can this brush be used with powder liners?
I will often times use the darkest shade in an eyeshadow set as a liner and wondered if this brush would work well for that....I se a lot on gel and cream liners, but what about something powdery?

The darkest color in my powder shadows is EXACTLY what I use it for! I use the Trish McEvoy FINISH LINE liquid product, add some drops to my powder shadows, mix it up with the angled brush, and voila! Instant eyeliner that I have great control over and that stays put! What makes a huge difference also is my eyelid shadow prep. Used 'em all, so from experience, definately trust me when I say that Urban Decay has been my go to shadow base until, and I didn't think it was possible, but in my new Tarte shadow palette, a sample of their shadow base came and WOW! I'm sold! Urban Decay keeps my shadow and liner in place through the night and while sleeping. Even shadow and liner stays put sometimes even after I swim! Now Tarte has brought temporary wrinkle plumping and coverage to the table to add to the fabulous extended wear - YAY!!!!!

Yes, this is what I mainly use it for. According to how you hold it, you can get a tiny thin line, or tilt a bit and expand your line for more coverage.

Yes, this brush works great with both powder and gel/cream eyeliner! It is very precise so never worry that the powder will fall below the eye or become caught in the lashes.

I've not had any problem using my powdered eye colors. If you want a smooth and darker line, just add a little water on the brush and then line your eye. The powdered colors with no water tends to feather out a bit, but can be applied dry if less intent liner is preferred.

YES! I've used it with eyeshadows as a liner. Just picked up the shadow/powder straight off the set (didn't need anything additional). Beats using a Q-tip for that like I've been doing. I've tried it with everything, creams, minerals, shadows, powders, and it's worked with all. I really like this brush and since it's synthetic means it's animal friendly if you're into that like I am.

I often simply use a dry, dark brown eye shadow as my liner. This brush works well. It's a bit soft and I prefer corse bristtles. However, it did the job.

I dont think this brush would be good for bowder since it is thin. But maybe you can wet the brush first and pick up the powder so it will pick up more product. But if didn't want to go through the hassle of wetting your brush i recommend just a plain old angled brush.

But now that i think about it, you could make do if the powder eyeshadow was in loose form. Be careful though because it would be a little messy

You could absolutely use this with a powder liner (and I have) I usually use a mixing medium or water or saline solution (anything on hand and liquidy) to wet the brush and then swipe through whatever shadow I'm feeling.

Yes. Try not to overload it if you want a fine line. It's also a little harder to wash off the brush....you may have to clean it a couple times.

Question
what do I use to keep the bristles on this brush wet?
This brush works really well when it is wet. I don't usually use liner brushes and so I don't know the best thing to dip the tip in to keep it wet during application. Do I use water? Please advise. Thanks

This is probably going to gross out a bunch of people and I'm sure this is completely wrong and unhygienic but I use my saliva. It sounds gross to me especially typing it out right now Im almost grossed out by it, but it works and I've been doing it for over five years daily and have had no problems. No bacterial infections etc. which Im sure many people think is a problem.

Yes, dip it in water, and then dip it in whatever eyeshadow color you're trying to use as an eyeliner. Make a bit of a paste, and use that as the eyeliner.

Laura Mercier (and Trisha McEvoy) makes a liquid designed to wet powder shadows (I cant remember the name at the moment). It comes in a little bottle with a dropper. I use the lid of the eyeshadow to mix it up. I have only used the Trisha as a friend tried the Laura and said it irritated her eyes. I've now filled the little bottle with water and I'll honestly say the plain water works just as well.....so find an eye dropper and you're all set....ps two drops of water seems to be enough with a pinch of powder.

With a clean brush, wet the brush with water then smooth brush over powder shadow/liner for a wet look. The brush can be used dry for powder products, also. No need to wet brush for gel liners. If bristles become stiff after using liquid or gel products, just rinse with warm water and a little hand soap.

My favorite item to use for using a shadow as an eyeliner is Makeup Forever's Eye Seal. It makes anything into a liquid, and it dries to a waterproof finish. And it's versatile, you can use it for foiling baked shadows or loose pigments, as well. If it make your brush crunchy, clean it with a waterproof makeup remover and follow up with brush shampoo.

I use a light mist of water from a spray bottle. I've done the following: misted the brush directly; misted the lid of mineral powder eye liner and swirled the brush in it (then dip into the powder and swirl around on container lid to distribute eye liner through brush bristles); and misted a paper towel and dabbed the brush onto it. Have fun!

I usually put a drop of water in the mirror or lid of the product I'm using for eyeliner. Some companies even have a liquid specifically for this. I think they also help to make it last or waterproof it. Anyway, as you need it, just tap the brush into the lid and go back to the product and apply.

It's a matter of what point you want your brush to come to. I compare the two and preferred the tapered point of this brush to the Smashbox. The Smashbox seemed like it'd be harder to work with.

I don't use the red handled brushes at all anymore! The quality is inferior to the platinum line from Sephora. You'll just need to get it and try it once to see what I'm talking about.

I have several of the red handled versions. The hairs get all "bursty" looking after a few uses and washes. The Platinum version here is so much better! It holds it's point and is easy to clean. And yes, it does help with the angle.

Well I have only used the professionnel platinum angled eyeliner brush #23 with smashbox jet set waterproff eye liner in midnight black because it was recommended to me vs. the other brush and I see no need to go check out the other brush because this 1 works amazingly well.

I thought they were both comparable. I have used both the Sephora brand and Smashbox angled brush. Perhaps there is a differece with the actual make-up that is applied, but not in the tool that is applying the eyeliner.

Question
Am I doing something wrong?
I bought this a week ago exactly, and idk why, but I can't seem to get that 'super fine line' of color that everyone here is talking about. This was my first eyeliner so I bought a drugstore brand, under $10. Is it a problem with my liner? I can't make a fine line of color, and it always smudges as I am putting on the liner.
Should I dip the whole edge of the bristles into the product, and coat the whole entire tip?

I use this with the Bobbi Brown gel liner and with a Loreal gel liner (inexpensive drugstore brand). I get the brush slightly wet before and I put it in the "pot" of liner and twirl it. I then sort of "scrape" excess liner on the edge of the container and then apply to my eye. If I'm not in a hurry I try to rinse after Im done as well.

I use only a little at a time since I'm not very skilled. I can control the thickness and shape easier that way. It takes a lot longer than it should but it's worth the effort.
