Inglot 27P Eye Brush
Inglot 27P Eye Brush

Inglot 18SS Eye Brush ($21.00) is made out of “squirrel substitute” (I honestly have no idea what that means, but it is listed as a natural brush) and can be used for “eye modeling” and “smoky eye[s].” It’s a dense, dome-shaped brush that’s stiff. The brush head is 9mm tall, 8mm wide, and 8mm in depth. The brush head is like a like a cynlinder with a domed edge, and it’s not too small, not too big, but it is wider and larger than your typical pencil brush. I find that that’s the way I use it most–as a stiffer crease brush to deposit more color. I actually liked it a lot with cream eyeshadows, as it applied them well with good opacity, while still fitting in the crease. Most of the time, it is soft while used, but if I’m doing short, but firm, taps, then there’s a few bristles that feel slightly sharp.

27P Eye Brush ($21.00) is a paddle-shaped brush with a slightly domed and tapered edge. The brush head is 16mm across, 17mm tall, and 6mm thick. The bristles are made out of pony hair, and Inglot simply describes the brush as “multi-functional.” It’s a very large eye brush, so it will lend itself best for things like laying down a wash of color, lightly patting on a primer or base, or as a more precise face brush. I found it most useful to pat on pressed powder underneath the eyes or to really apply highlighter precisely (but blend with something else). The brush felt soft, and it retained its shape after several washes.

32T Eye Brush ($14.00) is made out of Taklon (synthetic) bristles, and it is designed to be used with gel eyeliner or for precise lining. It is a very small brush at a mere 6mm tall, 4mm wide, and 2mm thick. It’s a flat, firm brush that comes to a tapered point. If you have smaller eyes and need something to apply cream or gel products, this might be useful. I don’t have Duraline, but I could see how this would be useful, as Duraline is a liquid product that “transforms any powder into an intense, easy to apply liquid,” so this would work well for mixing.

All three brushes are particular, and whether any of them are useful is going to be down to personal preference. The only one that I might continue reaching for is 32T to apply cream products on the very inner lid, and then possibly the 27P for setting concealer (but I often use a fluffier, more feathery brush for that).

    Squirrel substitute? LOL Maybe we don’t wanna know what that means!

  2. Ha! It really cracks me up that the 18SS is made from “squirrel substitute” — Inglot, don’t play games with us!

    (But, I mean. I guess if they have to, they may as well play hilarious ones. :P)

    What the heck is “squirrel substitute”?!?! I laughed out loud about that one.

  4. Those look really really nice. I haven’t tried Inglot brushes yet, I mainly use MAC, Sigma and Zoeva.

  5. These brushes look great!

  6. Oh good, not alone.. Snort laugh..squirrel substitute..seriously? LOL

    I came on here to see if anyone else was giggling about “squirrel substitute.” Guess it wasn’t just me!

  8. Ha I imagine there was something lost in translation with the “squirrel substitute”… Such a wonderful brand and being half Polish, their success is very exciting, but they do need to work on their translations in general – I’ve seen a few similarly odd phrases on their site and in their marketing emails haha

    Inglot has a great video on these brushes on YouTube. The artist explains the numbering and lettering system on their brushes.

    I work at Inglot and our 18SS brush means that its soft like squirrel hair but its not actually squirrel. Its an amazing brush and it has been one of our best sellers since we got it in stock.

    • Do you know what it’s made out of though? I don’t think anyone has a problem with it being made out of something else, but it’s more curious that it wasn’t specified ;)

      • natalie

        yes, I agree as well.
        My manager told me that its a mix of synthetic hairs, its like a blend to make it seem as soft as squirrel.
        I know, confusing -___-
