Multiuse brush for entire eye look
Really love this brush. I am surprised by softness. The build and shape of the brush is very well designed. It makes eyeshadow application easy and effortless. Halving the time on application. It applies shimmers and metallics beautifully. I have small Asian hooded eyes and I can do an entire look with this brush. I also love the shape of the handle and the colour. Very elegant to use.1 found this helpful.Lana H. May 31, 2021
Nice little brush for the lid
This brush has a very nice somewhat tapered tip, wich allows color placements in all corners of the lid. Because the bristles are quite long, the brush is a bit more flexible (which also helps with precise placement). As a result it's not the very best for packing on shadow super intensely, but it does the job just fine for me.Toni V. Jul 09, 2020
This the eye brush you need for a quick eye look.
I received my Sonia G Pro eye brushes almost the same time as I received my Pat Mcgrath Divine Roses duos. Before the pro set, i only had the Worker One from Sonia G eye brush collection. I wanted to try the PMs because it was also my first pm eyeshadow. I was battling which one in the pro eye I should use..and i chose this.
This brush can do everything. From laying down product, to blending, and smudging.
Let me just say that I am a fude brush collector but mostly face brushes. I think i stuck with face brushes because I did not have the best luck when i first bought a couple from hakuhodo years ago...and thats why I got a bit turned off using eyeshadows. While the bristles on my hakuhodos were extremely soft (goat and squirrel) the bristles splayed out, it did not blend well, and the application was patchy.
Its true what they say that your feelings about putting eyeshadow will change when you use the right brushes because thats how i feel with sonia g's. The bristles are extremely soft but lays down product beautifully and blends effortlessly.
I have currently bought both the pro and the sky eye sets and its the best decision Ive ever made.3 found this helpful.Isabelle G. Mar 03, 2020
Some will say that if you are not makeup artist, then it is wasting your money to spend it on such luxurious objects. I'm not makeup artist. I hesitated very (too) long before embarking on this acquisition. After a few days of use, I know, on the contrary, that if you are not makeup artist, and you are in love with nice results, then it is better to invest in real good tools such as those of Sonia G or Wayne Goss. Indeed, these objects are so well made that they guide you. Their use is very intuitive and the results impressive. You can't imagine the frustration-coupled dissatisfaction that could have dialled me after 20 to 25 minutes of makeup without getting what I want to get. Since I received these brushes, my makeup has been transformed. Actually. Oh, really. I manage to position the color accurately, exactly where I want, which was not the case with my other tools. A real treat.

Ich habe von Sonja schon von den ersten Augenpinsel welche die, wie ich finde, spezieller sind. Da musste ich erst für mich rausfinden wie ich diese benutze sozusagen. Doch dieser und auch Builder Three den ich auch besitzte, sind so einfach anzuwenden. Sie nehmen unwahrscheinlich gut Farbe auf, gerade bei meinen Lidschatten von Pat Mcgrath oder Natasha Denona. Wirklich klasse ich nehme für diese speziellen Lidschatten keine anderen Pinsel mehr. Wer sie kennt die speziellen Formeln, weiß wovon ich spreche. Würde jederzeit diese Pinsel hierfür empfehlen, tolle Farbabgabe auch auf dem Lid dann. Mit diesen Pinseln macht es richtig Spaß zu arbeiten.4 found this helpful.Annalise S. Aug 07, 2019

Versatile Shader Brush
The slightly tapered shape of the Builder Pro makes it super easy to pack the shadow to the inner portion of the lid. It also applies shadow beautifully all over the lid as well, but I prefer the slightly firmer Builder Three for that purpose. I know it sounds a bit extra to use two different brushes just to apply your lid shade but as brush fanatic, I’m okay with that! Shape wise, this brush is actually more versatile than the Builder Three, which is more squared off. The tapered shape allows you to use it to pack on and deepen the outer corners as well. I see that the bristles are slightly graduated in length along the taper and that is to allow you to pick up more product with the ends of the bristles.
As you can see in the photos, the width of the brush is similar to that of the Builder Pro but the bristles are slightly longer. The dyed Saikoho goat hairs are ultra soft on the lid and will never tug or feel scratchy. The flat shape of the brush allows you to use one side to pack on one shade and the other side for another. It is a really useful brush and especially so if you prefer a slightly tapered shader brush. Since I’m comparing this to the Builder Three, it is worth noting that there will be a difference in the shape of the handle. The Builder Pro has the tapered handles like all the other pro brushes while the Builder Three has the traditional thicker handle that does taper a bit towards the end of the ferrule but goes straight down after that.37 found this helpful.jenn K.

It's an ok brush. The craftsmanship is nice.
I bought it to complete the pro eye set I had been gradually buying up piece by piece.
I much prefer the builder 3 over this one.
If you're looking for a tapered packer the Smith brushes have an arrowhead lay down packing brush.
I'd try those until.the restock of builder 3 which btw is also not tapered but it does pack on product really well.
This pro brush is too thin and flimsy for my taste. It's the brush I reach for the least and honestly I would return it if I wasn't such a completionist. I don't find anything to be too particularly magical or unique about how it supposedly digs in and applies "hardpanned" product either.
Builder 3 otoh does the trick
However good luck actually scoring one during a restock bc Beautylish will not place household purchasing limits on hoarders ...er "customers" during an anticipated restock 😒😒10 found this helpful.
