|NARS #15 Smudge Eye Makeup Brush ($26)|
NARS #15 Smudge Brush is another of the NARS eye makeup brushes that I own...and sort of like. By the description on the NARS website, this brush is made of "pony hair ideal for applying eyeshadow near the lash line for smokey effect." Like all the other NARS eye makeup brushes I have tried, the black handles on this brush are a little on the longer side compared to most other brushes, and the shiny metal ferrule crimps towards the end, holding the densely bundled hair quite securely. I have had this brush for more than a year, and it looks just as good as new through all the washings and smudgings. Scroll on for more photos.
The NARS #15 Smudge Makeup Brush is shaped perfectly for the purpose it's labelled to be used for. The brush head is flat, short, and stubby, and the hair are very, very densely packed together. The short hair and dense packaging makes this a very stiff brush and ideal for blending and smudging eyeliners and shadows along the lashline. I do find the hair a bit on the scratchy side, and I wouldn't use this along the lower lashline because of this reason.
