Avon double-ended eye brush

There are a lot of dirt cheap, awesome brushes out there, but the thing is we often have to dig around for them or accidentally find them. One "accidental" find of mine is this double-ended eye brush from Avon. As I remember this is only P150, but it's another mainstay in my vanity table.

I've actually had this for a few months now. I spotted it in this huge Avon bash at Republiq, just sitting there with no one really paying any attention to it. It was part of Avon's new mineral line at that time, but everyone was cooing about the kabuki brush and of course, the mineral makeup. I was impressed when I got to try this double-ended brush though - it packed a lot of color and applied it smoothly!

There are several reasons I like this brush, but it all boils down to its multi-functionality. This brush is an all-around wonder because the two ends can do your eye makeup in one go. For instance, the domed, natural-hair brush can apply lid color effortlessly. I know, that sounds a little doubtful, but when your splay it on your lid, you get the shape of a normal lid brush. Plus points because its density allows you to pack on the color even with chalky eyeshadow.

The domed shape also makes it perfect for applying crease color, and that delicate v-corner at the edge of your eyes. It can also triple as a blending brush.

The other end, a flat, pointed brush with synthetic hairs, can apply cream eyeshadow on the lid, eyebrow color, or spot concealer. It's best function though is as an eyeliner brush. The truth is I've never used an eyeliner brush like this before - but it works far better than a pencil brush or angled brush when used with a cream liner. It's easy to maneuver to get that perfect line. Way easier to clean, too.

Currently, you won't find this in the Avon brochure, but I hear that it appears once in a while. Better ask your Avon lady for it! Or wait for it in the bi-monthly Avon brochure. Definitely nice to have, especially for travelling.

I just realize that I only own a charm mini kabuki brush, poor me.... I got an eye shadow brush from my Avon eye shadow quad... I like to have this one to add in my brushes... Cheaper than other brands yet multi-functional as you said... I can't wait to own one...

By the way, I enjoyed reading the Cosmo Mag August issue… They tackle a lot of make-up, beauty products from head to toe from famous brands, just wondering if you read it….

i've been waiting for your review of this brush ever since you mentioned it in your post about the kanebo kate gel eyeliner! I bought the angled eyeliner brush of japonesque last year but my sister lost it so now i'm on the hunt for a new eyeliner brush. Thanks!

@mrs. brigoli: you've now got me curious about the Cosmo Mag august issue haha. Will check it out soon :)

Wow! Another good product from Avon. :) I just find it weird for a double ended brushes. I think it needs getting use to. :)

Have this brush too! Got it for only P120-ish (on sale), although it was out of stock the first few tries so my Avon gal had to keep checking back for it. For that price, it's pretty amazing especially with applying eyeshadow on the crease. Can't wait to try this out with gel eyeliner which is my next makeup goal. Have the Avon kabuki brush too, but not so pleased with that one. Have washed it more than 5 times and it still bleeds like crazy. I do hope Avon comes out with more brushes, though. :-)

I got this brush too. Actually when this comes up again on the Avon brochure, I'm going to buy several because they're nice for instant gifts! :) Thanks Liz for this review. I'm going to try it as an eyeliner brush also.

Good news girls just ordered this double ended brush to my Avon lady yesterday... It is available on their September 1-15 brochure... I guess they are exactly the same brush, its P129.00 very affordable... it's on the page with the mineral eye shadows and eye liners...

So what are you waiting for?????? Grab it now.......

@Ronah here comes your chance to have lots of it… ^_^
