the Trish McEvoy #29 Tapered Blending Brush is one of those brushes i always wanted to try thanks to their brilliant reputation. i bought mine from ebay, but again i want to warn you not to get deceived by the really cheap Trish McEvoy offers on there. when they go below regular retail price, be suspicious!
i paid about 29 AU$ for it.
it washes nicely without bleeding dye or shedding. it didn't loose any hairs and kept the shape very well.
the #29 brush has a medium size and the clear acrylic handle is rather short. it's sturdy, well made without any sharp edges, gaps, unevenness in its shape whatsoever. it's a round brush which is tapered to a fine point. it's made of soft natural hair - same good quality as i'm used to with their face brushes, with a similar flexibility and bounce (click here to read my reviewof the face brushes).
after testing it for about a week in many different eye make ups now i can really verify all the amazing reviews i've read about this. it's a fabulous brush which makes application of dark crease colours so easy. i like to dab the fine tip into a very dark and intense colour and applying it to my outer crease area. thanks to its taper it blends out the colour very evenly right away. the bounce and smooth fibers feel great against my lids. the size is great - not too big for my small lids but would also be good for a wider lid space or deeper setted eyes.
definitely a recommendation for anyone having a hard time with a dark crease.
it's the most pointed and with most bounce of all these brushes.
