Revlon Contour Shadow Brush


I was at Superdrug looking for tweezers when I came across this brush. I was intrigued since I never knew Revlon made brushes, and then I see a whole lot of them at Superdrug! The packaging boasts professional quality, so then I thought, since I didn't have a blending brush as small as this one yet, why not check it out?

And I have no regrets. The quality is as amazing as it states. It is comparable to my MAC ones. The bristles are soft yet firm, and return to its original formation when after bending the bristles. On washing it the first time, I have not seen any hair fall-outs from the brush.

This brush is dome-shaped, and the bristles are probably about 2/3's the length of the bristles of the MAC 224 brush. The bristles are black like the 224. The handle, however, is a bit longer than the average MAC eye makeup brush.

Here's a photo comparison between the bristles of the Revlon contour shadow brush vs. the MAC 224 brush:


At the moment, I mainly use it to blend darker eyeshadows in the crease and to create a well blended 'outer V'. For a good diagram for eyeshadow placements, check out Vanessa's diagram here.

I'm loving my first high quality brush from Revlon, and I'd love to try out their other makeup brushes!

Have you tried out any Revlon makeup brushes? ♥
