This brush by Inglot is one that I’ve wanted to try for a while so I decided to pick it up. I paid €22 for it which isn’t too bad. It’s a good quality and sturdy brush so I expect it will last a while.
When I first got it and used it I found it quite stiff and dense and didn’t know how anyone used it for blending eyeshadow. I couldn’t get it to blend anything, so I washed it a few times and it softened and blends shadow perfectly, especially for a blown out smokey eye.
I love this to apply my first transition colour and blend it out really softly, before going in with smaller, more precise brushes with deeper colours.
I had seen in a few videos where people had used this to set their under-eye area and others used it to apply highlighter, so I decided to try it for both of those too.
I personally wasn’t a fan of how this applied highlighter. It applied it almost like a stripe. I think because of the shape of the brush it’s hard to get it spread evenly hence why it tends to give a stripe-effect. I disliked it for setting my under-eye area too, again because of its shape and it’s too small. The Real Techniques Duo Fiber Contour Brush is what I prefer to set my under-eye area. It’s the perfect size and shape, but it’s also super soft too.
The contour brush from their Core Collection is quite nice for under the eyes also as is the ABH #23 brush.
This brush reminds me a lot of the E25 by Blank Canvas, but it is bigger and more dense than the E25.
The E25 is a very fluffy and soft brush which I love and use every time I do my make-up. I can’t be without it. It’s quite possibly my most used eye brush and it is super cheap too.

I love the E25 for blending out harsh edges or achieving a blown out smokey eye because of it’s softness and how well it blends.
The 4SS is, as I mentioned above, more dense. I don’t like it for blending colours together because it just merges all the colours into one. For my first transition colour it is great.

I do like the 4SS I just wish it was fluffier and less dense than it is. The only use for it is applying my first transition shade I don’t think I’ll get much use from it.
It’s a good quality, sturdy brush and the quality is what I would expect for a €22 brush. It’s not far off MAC or Bobbi Brown prices.
This brush can be purchased on Inglot.ie or in store.
