So i decided to try the Smith brushes because of various reviews and i thought ok so let me jump on this. This is brush is ok but is sooo scratchy and sheds on my eyelids. Granted i am accustomed to WG and Sonia G and that is already quite a high standard. It does work well in terms of picking up product and depositing but it is so uncomfortable to work with. And the shedding is quite bad. I bought this and the 230 but reluctant to use the other one for reasons already stated. I took off the stars only for the shedding and scratchy part. For the price, i would not recommend it and will not be purchasing anything else from their line
I'm officially in love with Smith brushes. we can get married.
This one is larger and fluffier and softer vs the 230 so it's a perfect crease brush for bigger eyes and a perfect pairing to use this in your lineup esp....for beginners. The way they have designed their brushes is very comprehensive too. 1) fluffy 230 brush 2) smaller 232 fluffy crease brush 3)247
Now these brushes wont be a good fit for you if you're a type a personality, who prefers them to maintain perfect appearance and shape. I dont mind that as long as the tools get the job done properly.
Brush guards are necessary for the 232 and 230 bc the hairs will splay if the get wet.
They're not super extra soft like Sonia G brushes, (price is reflected in that) but it's kind of what I like about them; they give me a sense of grit or a grip as another reviewer pointed out which helps to blend out my more stubborn shadows. I adore the size, shape and aesthetic of the handles. I cannot wait to slowly build up my Smith brush collection. uugh if I had more money in would buy them all immediately.
This was my third purchase. Did I mention I love these brushes? xoxoxo
I first purchased this brush at the Makeup Show in San Francisco at the Smith Cosmetics booth and found it so indispensable that I purchased another at Beautylish. I had been patiently waiting for this guy to come back in stock as my eyeshadow application would be much improved with another one. I had been using the first one I purchased to lay down the transition shade and deepen up the crease in a more diffused application. I knew I could use another one to blend out the edges but was a bit surprised when I received my second Smith 232 Brush.
By visual comparison, I can clearly see a size and density difference with the brushes. To be honest, I felt like the brush was inconsistent and I potentially received a dud. Fast forward a month and I have washed the brush several times, I'm seeing that the brush has become almost identical as my first brush. With each wash, the brush has become fuller and more rounded in shape. The brush seems to have bloomed after a few washes and become the brush I have come to know and love. If you receive this brush and have the same initial feelings, do stick with it for awhile and give it a chance. The brush does get better with each wash.
I have found this brush to be the most impactful crease brush in my collection. This is not going to be the softest brush you've ever used like a squirrel hair crease brush would feel like on the skin. It is by no means scratchy to me either. The firm bristles contribute to the brush being able to pick up, lay down and diffuse the most amount of pigment with any crease brush I've used. For those times that I'm in a hurry with no time to play around, this is my go to brush for a transition shade or crease color.
I was a little unimpressed using these brushes initially. I thought they would be... fluffier? They work much better as a more detailed crease brush on my eyes. Still a nice brush, I just need to use them more and figure out how they work for me.
I was beyond excited to get this brush as I have heard nothing but amazing things about the quality. I love the general shape but my brush arrived and there were hairs splayed out already. This causes blending to be an absolute nightmare. Tried everything to help and even washed and dryers with a brushguard but nothing has helped. Complete let down and waste of money.
