Sonia Kashuk Brush Couture 5 Piece Set Review Pt 3

This is the 3rd and final segment of  my review of the Limited Edition Sonia Kashuk Couture 5pc Brush Set.  If you’ve missed the other posts, you can click here for Part 1 and Part 2.

Below is the Angled Crease Brush.

Initially when I saw this brush in the set I thought it was just like my Elf Angled Contour Brush.  I’ve compared the two brushes below.

Good News! It’s not like my Elf Brush.  The only features that are similar are the fact that they both have angles, other than that, they’re different.  Sonia Kashuk has natural hair and  the Elf brush has synthetic hair.  The Elf brush is a lot bigger and more dense and not quite as angled as the Sonia Kashuk Brush.

Next up is the Synthetic Concealer/Foundation Brush.  Yet another name I don’t agree with.  I would not use this brush to apply foundation.  I mean, can it be done?  Sure, but it will take  a long time because this is a small brush.  It would work a lot better for concealer.  Right off, I knew this was a brush that I didn’t have a dupe for.  It reminds me of the MAC #192 but I don’t have that brush.

Above, I’ve compared it to other brushes I had.  The Elf Foundation Brush and my Coastal Scents Purple Foundation Brush.

You can see that both of these brushes are a lot bigger.  All of them are synthetic so they will work about the same as far as picking up product.

The  5th and final brush is the Smudge Brush.  Don’t let the name fool you.  It’s actually natural hair not a sponge.

Above I compared it to 2 other rounded crease brushes.  In the middle is the MAC #219 and the 3rd brush is Crown Brush C431 Precision Detail.  So what did I find out?

All 3 of these brushes are different. LOL! 🙂 The Sonia Kashuk Smudge Brush is the smallest out of the three but the MAC #219 has the pointiest ( I think I just made up a word) tip. The Sonia Kashuk Smudge will work awesomely well for defining a “cut crease” look or for blending shadows in the crease for those with really small eyes.  I’m sure a lot of people would think to use it for smoking out eyeliner, but because the tip is more rounded than pointed, you may end up with lots of smoke. Ha ha!  This may leave you with a more dramatic look than you intended.  Not bad or wrong, just maybe not what you had planned.
