The brush is made from tri-tone takelon, which is synthetic.

I am guessinf Synthetic, it feels almost silky and just the right amount of firmness. BUT, SEPHORA SHOULD BE LETTING US KNOW THIS, SEPHORA!

I'm not sure, but the colour variation makes me think the bristles are natural. Either way, it feels very silky against my skin, but is firm enough to place colour very precisely, evenly and intensely.

I find that you can pick up more product if you take the end and swirl (circle) the brush in your product to obtain maximum product. You can then use the same motion (slowly) during application to that you pick up product less frequently. The tip is fine, but the way that the brush is cut allows you to put product on the trimmed portion of the brush. I hope this helps!

It's not supposed to pick up a lot of shadow, it's supposed to be used to smoke out the eye area. It will pick up a small bit of shadow, and you CAN use it to work on the outer V area, but you'll probably need to use darker shadow and work a bit longer, as it doesn't pick up a lot. Maybe use shadows that are very pigmented and tend to "loosen" up some when the brush runs across them, so you can get more powder on the brush. Just a thought.

I roll this in the shadow - hold at an angle so the top half of the brush lays so that the edges roll - don't point it down so only the tip is carried across the shadow powder. Apply using the edges of the tip, then sweeping to the tip as you move across your eye crease. If your using it for eyeliner, you can use more of the tip, but for powder shadow you need more of the edge - in my experience anyway.

i bought it for same purpose and find that if the color i am using is lighter (tan, taupe) i need to do it twice-if i use a darker brwon, blue- etc, once is enough..try going 2 shades darker for the crease.. i also have small lids and cannot live without this brush now!

the brush is designed to pick up small amounts and help you place color exactly where you want it; with repetition you can build the color.

This is exactly what I use the brush for: creating a v-shaped crease, and it's the best brush I've used so far for it.

Absolutely ideal for the "v". I bought it for the smokey eye with v and I love it.

Yes the #24 pro smokey eye brush is perfect for creating the outer v. I've done it already! Its awesome and its very precise. I attached a picture of the shadow I did with this brush. I applied the purple with this brush in the outer v and crease. The shadow I used was coastal scents ultra shimmer palette and I applied nyx jumbo eye pencil in milk as a base to make the color pop. I used essence gel liner in London baby with a Sephora angled liner brush. The liner is waterproof and is difficult to remove therefore it does not budge during the day.

Depends on the size of your eyes, this is a very, very small and precise brush. It would be great for a cut crease - I have monolids and therefore a lot of lid space and think it is a bit too small for my preferred outer v.

I typically use it to around the eye lid to create more exact lines on top of my eye liner. I find that helps make the liner appear less harsh especially on the lower lid

Use it to line your eye or to smudge eyeliner to create a smokey effect. I like using it with a charcoal gray shadow, then drawing a thin black line with a tapered brush right along my top lashline to make my eyes pop.

I use it to blend my Urban Decay 24/7's but it is ALSO AWESOME for pin-pointing on your concealer if you get a little blemish! This is a real multi-tasking brush that feels like sil & is the perfect firmness! YOu really cannot go wrong w this brush! It's also great if you want to make an exxageratted, wider cat-eye w Stila Smudge Pots or UD'D CREME Shadows! Have fun:)

219 is a wider brush-this is more pencil like..perfect for small lids and detail work

The MAC 219 is much denser and not as pointy. If I were told I could only keep one brush, I would choose this brush over the MAC 219.

The brush is very soft but firm. it's almost like a concealor brush. I love Mac brushes also but unfortunately I am not versed on there version of this brush so I don't know how to tell you compare the two.

Question
How does it compare to Laura Mercier's Smoky Eye Brush eye brush
This looks similar to the Laura Mercier Smoky Eye brush that I purchased in my local Sephora store but unfortunately they have discontinued it, at least on the Sephora website. I am wondering if anyone has used them both and can give some feedback on how they compare in density, ease of use, holding up through washing etc. Thanks!

I actually prefer the Sephora over the LM brush. It's a little tighter and gives a good crease definition. I would advise you to try it and decide for yourself. Sometimes a girl needs both!
