Pencil One

Sonia G. Pencil One Brush ($36.00) is a medium-sized pencil brush made out of blue squirrel hair, the place the bristles come to a extra tapered level that’s simply rounded sufficient to not poke or really feel harsh in opposition to the attention or within the crease. It’s a denser brush that maintains its form whereas getting used, and the comb strikes simply back-and-forth, although it may be utilized in round motions with out being too sharp. It’s surprisingly good at selecting up and depositing numerous product as blue squirrel hair tends to be extra delicate and tends to present sheerer/airier software (relative to goat hair)–it delivered precisely what it was meant to do (“a pencil brush that would be precise and powerful without compromising softness”).

I discover the form and density of the comb to work greatest for depositing very intense colour into the deeper components of my crease, maneuvering colour on my inside lid space (if I’m wanting one thing fairly exact), and for smoking out the decrease lash line. If you wish to get eyeshadow or eyeliner very near your lash strains, I feel the dimensions is a bit too giant for that objective. I’ve since bought a second of this brush as I’ve discovered it fairly helpful and reached for it typically sufficient to “justify” (let’s be actual, I’ve extra brushes than sense!) one other.

I’ve had no points with washing it (retains its form effectively after washing, and I don’t use brush guards), and the comb itself feels prefer it’s in the identical (simply over a 12 months later), prime notch situation because it did initially.

Per the model, the deal with has a complete size of 148.5mm with a brush head size of eight.5mm and width of 6.5mm. As a part of the core vary, the handles are wider than common (the PRO vary has thinner, extra tapered handles). You can safely assume that the comb has held up fantastically over many washings and makes use of; if there are any points from washing, form modifications, and the like, they’ll be referred to as out particularly.

Pencil Two

Sonia G. Pencil Two Brush ($28.00) is a medium-sized eye brush that’s large, rounded, and involves dome-shaped edge. It’s about half the dimensions of the everyday, tapered crease brush, but it surely’s considerably denser and firmer as a complete. The Saikoho goat hair bristles are extremely easy and really feel like silk in opposition to my pores and skin whatever the motion or path I take advantage of with it. The brush picks up product exceptionally effectively, whether or not they’re denser, firmer formulations or softer, extra powdery ones.

The brush is meant for use to “pack on and smudge cream eyeshadow” and “define the outer v” and “inner corner.” It is, really, the kind of form that’s significantly good for making use of cream eyeshadow into the crease, particularly when the objective is to essentially diffuse and blow out the colour. I’ve used a similar-shaped (smaller) brush that’s artificial for this objective for years, and this one is unquestionably softer and kinder on my eyelid space.

As I are likely to work with extra powder eyeshadows than liquid/lotions, the commonest approach I take advantage of this brush is for highlighting the inside tearduct, because it lays down wealthy protection whereas buffing out the perimeters simply. It labored effectively for making use of colour onto the outer nook/lid space and diffusing a bit into the crease space. I wouldn’t attain for this (or suggest it for) extra conventional crease work, as the dimensions is bigger and density simply makes it work higher for blowing out colour than getting right into a small space exactly.

Per the model, the deal with has a complete size of 151mm with a brush head size of 11mm and width of seven.8mm. As a part of the core vary, the handles are wider than common (the PRO vary has thinner, extra tapered handles). You can safely assume that the comb has held up fantastically over many washings and makes use of; if there are any points from washing, form modifications, and the like, they’ll be referred to as out particularly.

Builder One

Sonia G. Builder One Brush ($32.00) is a smaller eyeshadow brush that’s extra within the line of a flat, shader brush, but it surely’s denser and thicker on the base and tapers on the entrance/again to a springy edge. The springy edge helps the comb distribute product extra readily and easily throughout lids, whereas the general density and firmness of the form picks up product actually properly. It’s made out of dyed Saikoho goat hair, and dyed bristles have a tendency to select up product higher than undyed hair (they usually have a tendency to resist extra “abuse”).

The brush is meant to “define, smudge, and layer” by “pack[ing] on pigment exactly where you want.” I like the comb for packing on powder eyeshadows on my lid, significantly moving into the inside lid and middle lid areas with out concern of citing shimmers into the crease space too simply. The extra I’ve used the comb, the extra I’ve felt that the ferrule is a bit giant that I can generally really feel the metallic in opposition to my lid (not in a painful approach, simply that I can really feel the coolness of the metallic), and it’s not my favourite brush to scrub with how giant the ferrule is in comparison with the comb head. I like the precise form of the comb head for making use of product to my lid space, although.

For smudging alongside the lash strains, it really works effectively for giving a extra exact, barely blurred line of colour–much less subtle than if used with Pencil One. I don’t discover myself utilizing it a lot for that buy I have a tendency to make use of pencil brushes there myself. The narrower edge matches effectively, although, alongside the lash strains and when making a cut-crease impact as you may get near the cut-out space with out going past it.

Per the model, the deal with has a complete size of 153.5mm with a brush head size of eight.5mm and width of 10.5mm that narrows to 7mm. As a part of the core vary, the handles are wider than common (the PRO vary has thinner, extra tapered handles). You can safely assume that the comb has held up fantastically over many washings and makes use of; if there are any points from washing, form modifications, and the like, they’ll be referred to as out particularly.

Builder Two

Sonia G. Builder Two Brush ($34.00) is a big, dome-shaped, dense eyeshadow brush designed to “build any type of product” and “gradually” get it to “the desired intensity,” whether or not utilized to the “browbone” or used for “blending, smudging or polishing.” It is made out of Saikoho goat hair, and the bristles taper as they get to the extra rounded, dome-shaped edge.

This is the kind of brush that ought to work effectively for somebody who works with one to 2 shades on the lid, as it’s a bigger brush, and it’s a flexible form that ca pack and press on colour, unfold and mix out the colour, and match into the crease (for a much less exact, extra subtle crease colour software) or to comb throughout the lid in a single, fluid movement. The brush is dense, firmer however not stiff, and it labored effectively in any path or movement. The brush works effectively to deposit heavy colour to the forehead bone and inside tearduct as effectively, and for me–as the entire idea of one-to-two shade appears is almost international–these areas are the place I’ve primarily taken to utilizing this brush on.

I like the general form and really feel of the comb however discover it too giant for my wants and eye house. The newer Builder Pro is a extra manageable measurement for my lid house, but it surely’s appeared a bit much less dense and flatter, giving it much less of a “buffing” really feel in opposition to my pores and skin; I discover that the comb head is totally different sufficient in form that it didn’t really feel like a smaller model of the Builder Two. Builder Two performs effectively with how it’s described, however the nature of brushes is that the way it features, whether or not it’s helpful sufficient (or will exchange one thing else you utilize), and so forth, actually comes down to non-public preferences, the dimensions of your options, and the way you want to use merchandise.

Per the model, the deal with has a complete size of 156.5mm with a brush head size of 11.5mm and width of 12mm. As a part of the core vary, the handles are wider than common (the PRO vary has thinner, extra tapered handles). You can safely assume that the comb has held up fantastically over many washings and makes use of; if there are any points from washing, form modifications, and the like, they’ll be referred to as out particularly.

Crease One

Sonia G. Crease One Brush ($38.00) is a smaller, very tapered crease brush that involves a extra outstanding level. It is made out of blue squirrel hair and was designed to each deposit and mix out merchandise with extra focused depth. For the hair sort, it really didn’t really feel fairly as silky and easy as I’d count on, although it was definitely comfortable and by no means scratchy.

As I’ve tried it with quite a few manufacturers and formulation during the last 12 months, I benefit from the measurement for extra exact, detailed crease work, particularly for depositing intense colour into the deeper a part of my crease, it’s doesn’t constantly diffuse and mix out merchandise in addition to I’d like (given it’s presupposed to do each). More blendable eyeshadows tended to diffuse effectively with the sting of the Crease One brush, however firmer, stiffer, and extra intense shades wanted one thing extra rounded, a bit fluffier to essentially pull and diffuse the perimeters outward. I desire the extra rounded form of Crease Two for getting higher, extra constant mixing throughout a myriad of merchandise (in any respect totally different colours, finishes, and high quality ranges!) however would like to see a smaller model. (Crease Pro is smaller however nonetheless somewhat large simply earlier than it tapers in, and it has a stronger level.)

Per the model, the deal with has a complete size of 154mm with a brush head size of 14mm and width of seven.3mm. As a part of the core vary, the handles are wider than common (the PRO vary has thinner, extra tapered handles).
