not very long,5in? it's the shortest brush in my collection,but for a smudger,you dont really need much leverage. but if you're more comfortable with a longer handle,Sephora has a platinum collection of brushes that offer a more professional style(longer handle that tapers)but i suggest you save a few bucks and stick with the black collection:) hope this helps,xoxo.

Would this work as a blending brush as well?
I was just wondering if this would work as a blending brush as well? And isn't a shading brush and a blending brush pretty much the same thing?

I use it for both and am very happy with it. I use the brush to apply color to my lash line as an alternative to eyeliner, apply color to the crease, & to blend the colors as well. It is my favorite & most versatile brush I own.

My blending brushes have longer bristles than my smudge brush. The shorter bristles are better for softening a color.

answer 3
It could work as a blending brush but the short length of the bristles makes them stiffer so not the most ideal for subtle blending.

answer 4
To your first question, yes, this brush can be used for blending, but depending on your effect, you may want to use either light or heavy pressure when blending. However I am not sure the answer to your second question. Sorry. But this brush can be used to apply and blend the color :)

this isnt really the brush you need for all over blending,although it is untouchable in the smudging department,lol. try Sephora's blending brush or shading brush,which yes,does about the same thing so one or the other is fine,you won't miss out on anything if you do not purchase both. hope this helps,xoxo!

answer 10
I think the bristles would be a little too short and firm to effectively use it for blending shadows on the eye lid. Unless you mean for blending a shadow into your liner around your eye--that'd work. But for blending, you need a looser brush with longer, softer brushes, or else you might end up wiping off shadow, rather than blending it together. IMO.

answer 11
No. I use it mostly as a smudge brush for eyeliner, to create a smoky eye. The description says it blends colors but I think it might pull your eyelids a little too much. The bristles are short and little bit stiffer. It might be a little difficult to blend colors over the entire eyelid with it. I would recommend getting a crease brush or an actual blending brush. Those work better to blend colors.

Question
Is this essentially the Kat Von D smudge brush?
I have received the Kat Von D eyebrush set for Christmas, and I am in absolute love with the brush handles, and the smudge brush itself. When I realized that the Kat Von D line was a Sephora Brand line, I noticed how eerily similar the Kat Von D smudge brush and this brush are. So I can't help but ask, is this really the same brush that's in the set, only without the gorgeous handle or KVD's stamp on it? ;)

a smudge brush is a smudge brush is a smudge brush,lol. but you totally get more out of one that's high quality-and YES,in the case of Kat's vs SC's,you are looking at basically the same brush...but Kat's handy dandy designs do make a girl feel extra pretty when applying with the KVD brush set. it's also a great set for someone looking to accumulate a well-rounded brush collection-congrats to whoever gifted that to ya:) hope this helps,xoxo.

I would say yes...Kat doesn't get behind just any product, so knowing that she's endorsing the Sephora brand is just one more reason why I only shop at Sephora for my cosmetics now...I still love the whole Kat vonD set, but only because of the added decoration!

The brushes are quite possibly manufactured by the same company and rebranded with the Kat von D logo. It would not surprise me at all.

Question
Cream Eyeshadow
Would this brush work well with cream eyeshadows? I have several of the Kat Von D eyeshadow palettes, but I don't have any good brushes to use for the cream shadows because mine are all fluffier. I was looking at the Kat Von D brush set but it's out of stock, and so far I've been doing okay with my current brushes.

answer 2
Because of the thickness and sturdy toughness of the bristles I can definitely recommend this brush for cream shadows. I was using it on my cream shadows to make a shadowy effect beneath my lower lashes - sort of that "end of the day" smudge look/halo effect. So I think it would work with Kat Von D's cream shadows as well.

answer 5
I think this brush might work well with cream shadows, but cleaning it could be a challenge. I certainly wouldn't call the brush "fluffy", but I think the cream shadow could work it's way down into the brush head and ruin the brush pretty quickly. I haven't seen the Kat Von D brush so I don't know how similar they are. For the price, though, it might be worth a try. This is an excellent brush for the price.

How big is the brush?
Just wondering if this is a small smudge brush or a big one. My friend recently bought a smudge brush from I don't know where and hers is huge! The width of the brush bristles pretty much covers the entire eye.

Not the the size of an eye at all! Going from memory (its at home, I'm at work) its maybe a little bit bigger than the width of your pencil eraser.

Question
What is it made of? SYNTHETIC OR NATURAL?
I find it strange that there are no ingredients list for this product made by sephora, however, almost all other products made by other companies are listed with ingredients on this site. I find it even more strange that the only quesions which have not been answered by sephora team or allowed to be sumitted by patrons are the 2 questions referring to what this makeup brush is comprised of. Probability-wise it indicates that you are obviously not wanting this question to be answered which truly makes me want to buy my products from other websites in the future as the ingredients are probably the most important and telling information about your company to disclose about the products you're selling!!! In fact, it makes your company worse than anything your product could contain (although it's obvious now it must be very bad in some way) that you are choosing to be deceptive in addition to whatever it is.
