Recently I got 2 brushes & an eyeshadow from Furless, which is an Australian cosmetics company that carries 100% vegan & Halal friendly products. I think this is the first time I've heard a non Middle Eastern cosmetics company use the word Halal, so bravo, Furless!
The 2 brushes that I tried are the Pencil/Crease brush & the Precision Bent Eyeliner brush from their Bamboo Eco makeup brushes line.
- Very dense & tapered.
- Picks up a lot of product so it's good if you're trying to pack on the colour.
- Doesn't shed.
- A little big to use on your lower lash line (I've included a comparison picture of it besides a MAC 219 pencil brush for those who are familiar with the MAC brush).
- Might be a little big for your crease depending on the look you're going for. I like to use it a little above the crease.
- The brush handle doesn't have the company's name or what kind of brush it is written on it. A few months or a few years down the road if a person wants to repurchase the brush, they might not remember the company or line (Bamboo Eco) & they might not even remember what the brush is called, which can be frustrating.
Precision Bent Eyeliner
- Bent eyeliner brushes make it very easy to apply & wing your eyeliner.
- Doesn't shed.
- The bristles are a little flexible, but not too flexible, so you still have good control.
- I end up picking up a lot more product with this brush than I do with an angled eyeliner brush.
- The bristles are all different lengths & they don't taper into a nice tip.
- Like the other brush, the handle doesn't have the company's name or what kind of brush it is written on it.
- The sifter top controls the amount of eyeshadow that comes out. This is good because I know that the eyeshadow won't spill all over when I try opening it.
- Blends well.
- The site uses the words 'Bright Magenta' to describe the eyeshadow, which I think is a far better description of the colour than the picture shown. The colour shown on the site is completely different than the actual product, which is a hassle when ordering things online.
Here I've swatched Spunky a few times. Roll your mouse over the picture for more details.
Lastly, the fun stuff: Putting the products to use!
I used Spunky on the lid & on the brow bone to help blend out the black (MAC eyeshadow in Carbon). I used the pencil/crease brush to apply a random shimmery off-white colour under my brow & in the inner corner as a highlight. On my lower lashline, I used the pencil/crease brush to pick up & apply the 2 darkest purples from the 120 eyeshadow palette (1st edition). For the eyeliner, I wanted a thin line just to cover up the band of the lashes since the look already had a lot going on, so I used the precision bent eyeliner brush for that.
& to finish the look off I added the pink rhinestone, which makes the look a bit more glam! I love how the look turned out with this addition. It's all about the details!
