Sonia Kashuk has always been one of my favorite inexpensive and easily attainable brands for brushes and tools. I have accumulated so many limited edition brush sets and brushes from her core permanent line over the years, and most of them have held and kept their shape and overall softness and quality BEAUTIFULLY over those years I've had them. As sad as I am that she will be pulling her brand away from Target (for reasons unknown to me), I was admittedly overjoyed to see that her entire line was clearanced out, so I stocked up on the 106 small shadow brush (one of my many favorites) along with a couple others in her core line. Let me tell you, this brush is the PERFECT packing brush for smaller eyes (especially if you use pigments a lot in your everyday life). This brush isn't synthetic, but its shape and density lend to it working BEAUTIFULLY with loose pigments and glitters, as well as pressed shadows! Its precision of application yield a *perfected* lid, and I use this as well for when I do the negative cut crease technique and need a brush small enough for my lid space to not extend into that work I've already put down, as its small enough for detail work. If you are blessed with a ton of lid space, then this will be a good inner corner/brow bone highlighter brush for you. Its stiffness will lend to it laying down and depositing a higher concentration of pigment to your lids, though, so if you're looking for a small 'wash of color' brush of this size, then this isn't soft or flexible enough to give you that more sheer application.
This 106 brush has held up for the duration of a few years of washing, and none of the hairs have splayed, and they're just soft enough, but not overly so (theyve stayed the same as when I first bought the brush), which is great for my sensitive eyes. Stock up on this brush while you can, since SK is leaving Target soon!
