Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush Review | Double Ended Soft Bristle Brush for Eyes

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

Stila Smudge pot brushStila #28 Smudge Pot Brush is a thin brush that is used to apply a thin line along the lash line, while the other end is a bigger brush used to smudge to create a smokey eye. Stila says this brush is designed to be used with Stila's smudge pots, but you can use it for any product really.

This double ended brush has good reviews on Sephora. Users say that it has soft bristles, its quick and easy to use and worth the high price.

A few ladies found that it worked well but if your using it in conjunction with the Stila smudge pots it becomes a hassle because it needs to be washed every time you use it.

Others thought the eyeliner end of the brush was to soft and found that some of the bristles fell out while they were using it.

To Sum Up

Considering how expensive this brush is it is nothing superior according to most of the ladies that have purchased it. They said some bristles fall out and it's a hassle to wash it after every use.

Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush costs $32. I know that it is a 2-in-1 brush but that is just over priced to me. There are plenty of cheaper brushes out there that will work just as well in my opinion.
