This medium-sized, paddle-shaped brush is flexible and has no sharp angles, which allows it to blend evenly for either a bold or a natural look. It is especially useful for the eyebrow arch and the eyelid. It features straight fibers and can be used with creams, as well as loose and pressed powders.
Make Up For Ever #228 Medium Precision Shader Brush ($25.00) is a flat, fairly firm, brush with a rounded edge. The brush head is 11mm in length, 10mm in width, and 4mm in thickness. It had a pinched, metal ferrule, and a total brush length of just under 6.5 inches or 16.5 centimeters. This shape is good for applying cream products all over the lid, as it is not too big or too large, and it will apply a cream product with good opacity. This brush was incredibly greasy and oily, despite over a dozen washes. It is not as thick or as narrow as the MAC 242 ($25).
