Name: Eyeshadow Brush Flat XL
From Gosh’s website:
Designed for a broader application of eyeshadow and powder around the eye where you want super soft and smooth toning. 100% natural hair.
What I liked:
– soft but dense bristles
– doesn’t bleed nor shed
– packs on color on the lid well
– looks sleek and elegant
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– not very practical for those that have small eyes
– some people may not like that the bristles are natural
Gosh Eyeshadow Brush Flat XL is the biggest eyeshadow brush I have ever seen! I have small eyes so I had doubts it would have worked well for me but I still bought it, on my last trip to London, because Superdrug was having a 3×2 offer on Gosh brushes (although selection was limited as most brushes were sold out) so this one came free and, hadn’t I liked it, I wouldn’t really have wasted any money. 🙂
Like the other Gosh eyeshadow brushes that I’ve tried, this too has a black handle that looks sleek and professional, with natural bristles that are very soft to the touch, don’t scratch skin and never shed a hair nor bled even after being washed several times. I think the quality of Gosh eyeshadow brushes is really outstanding for the price and are a great alternative to expensive brushes like those from MAC.
I have to say though that I don’t have much use for this brush but that’s only because, as I mentioned above, I have small eyes. The bristles are dense and pack a lot of color on the lid, but I just find it hard to control where to place the shade. It usually ends up even when I don’t want it and it’s impossible to blend with this brush!
However, on those rare days when I only use one color on the lid, this one works fine. It would also be a great choice for people with big eyes that are looking for a good brush to place the color or for those that need to apply eyeshadows all around the eyes for more daring/editorial looks. As long as you don’t have to do any precise work in a small area, I think you will really love this brush. Now, if only Gosh brushes (and everything else they make) were more easily available everywhere!
Available at: Superdrug stores throughout the UK
Unless you have small eyes (in which case skip this) Gosh Eyeshadow Brush Flat XL has soft and dense bristles that pack on a lot of color. Works great on big areas but it is not suitable for precise work. In addition, the bristles don’t shed nor bleed and the price is reasonable.
