The pink handled Soho crease brush is something you can pick up at Wal-Mart for 5.97$ plus tax (at least in my area in North Carolina). I`ve also seen these at Walgreens, but I`m not sure how much they cost.
I was just browsing the makeup section a little bit (well, if I`m buying tampons nearby, I may as well take a little stroll in the cosmetics section) and when I looked at the brushes aisle, I was immediately drawn to the pink handles. My favourite colour isn`t pink (it`s turquoise, actually) but I love it when brushes are a fun colour and not the boring nude or black. Black is sleek, sure, but I also like fun and interesting. They have other brushes like shader brushes, powder, blush, etc. but I needed another crease brush to use with my MAC 217.
The first complaint I had, and I didn`t notice this until I got home, was that there is a little chip on the handle. It`s above my thumb in the photo. It`s not a deal breaker at all, but I like it when my brushes stay pretty for at least a week after purchasing. So sue me.
I`ve tried the brush on Friday afternoon and it`s... it`s alright. I used this to apply colour and blend it out a little rather than go for some full-on blending. I`ll stick with my trusty MAC 217 because it works with my eye shape best. It picks up colour pretty well and applies it well. It`s nowhere near as soft as the MAC 217. I found some hairs to be scratchy and some to be much softer than others. It was a little weird.
For a little over six dollars, it certainly wasn`t a terrible purchase. MAC brushes are 20$+ so buying a couple MAC 217s can really hurt your wallet, I know. I am curious about the other brushes. I`d even buy another one of the crease brushes for crease colour application (and just leave the blending up to the MAC 217). Maybe I`ll get the professional crease brush with the black handle. I`m curious. It`s a little more expensive though.
Have you tried out these brushes? What do you think?
Please look at the original review on my blog. It`s much more pretty. ;)
