[REVIEW] Innisfree Eyeshadow Brush [Base]

This is my first review of a brush – milestone unlocked! I’ve been meaning to get an eyeshadow base brush for some time because I find that the mini eyeshadow tip(?) that comes with eyeshadow palettes such as those of Etude House and Innisfree a little too small and underwhelming.


Product Description

A shadow brush for base colour that builds the foundation for eye makeup

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 8.50


I love the wooden handle of the brush – it fits the directive of Innisfree being a natural brand, and it makes me feel like I’m actually an artist using a paintbrush to paint my eyelids. It’s a big reason why I chose to buy my brush from Innisfree (strange, I know).

On first touch, the brush hairs/bristles are really smooth and fan out nicely. This is important for application of eyeshadow, because this ensures that your eyeshadow will be picked up and spread out evenly.

I took this photo after applying my Innisfree eyeshadows on my eyelids, in case you are wondering why it looks so dirty haha. You can actually see how the brush hairs pick up the eyeshadow particles.

After months of using tiny eyeshadow applicators, I’ve never been happier to use a product that saves me so much time and effort. I like to use a nude shade as a base colour, but with the tiny applicators, I never managed to get a nice and even application. It was always either too muted or too intense (because I kept applying it over and over again).


Final Verdict

I love this brush for everything from the brush handle to the hairs. It really feels like I’m using a paintbrush, and I think of makeup as a form of art on your face, so the image really sticks.

Price-wise, I recommend this as a good investment if you can’t do without eyeshadow as part of your makeup process.

I think Innisfree has done a great job with these brushes, and I’m really looking forward to getting more of their brushes in future.
