Rated 4 out of 5 by DJMM Great brush, but not in love
This brush is great quality like the other Karma brushes, but I find myself rarely reaching for it because I have other brushes that already fill those purposes. For example, this is great for smudging out liner, but I already have a smudger. It works fairly well for applying color to my crease, but since you can't blending with it I prefer a pencil brush. I've even tried applying lip color with it before. Again, worked fairly well, but I have a lip brush. I think this is the type of brush that would be amazing for someone with either less brushes, or someone that wants to carry it with them. It's a great brush, but I can live with out it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wsuarmywife Great for Precision
I've been in the process of misplacing my much lower quality makeup brushes for quite some time, and I was intrigued when I saw this! For precision application, this is a must have. The bristles hold pigment well, and it applies shadow exactly where you need it. I also use this brush to smudge my eyeliner when I'm looking for a more smoky look.
The only problem I have with this brush is that the bristles are really stiff, and it's just not good at applying large sweeps of shadow over the entire lid. In addition, it's not very good for blending shadow, again, because of the stiffness of the bristles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rachel99 not that special
i have a brush in mind when i think of a multitasker, and it isn't this one. i rate this as good because it is. it can apply eyeshadow everywhere, get into the small inner and outer corners, blend a little in the crease, and line a little. however, it's not particularly great at any of it. works, but isn't great. this is a good quality brush if you can only buy one or you find that you're in a hurry. if you already have a great brush collection, i don't recommend this. definitely worth buying otherwise, just don't expect miracles.

This brush is great. I have this and the flat end one, and have to say, they have helped me achieve the looks I wanted with so much ease. Before I always wondered how, people got that look just right...a good set of brushes is what you need. I had the Mary Kay set, and they usually fell apart after a few months, and just didn't hold up. I have been using this for several months and it is fabulous. I am in the process of replacing all my current brushes with Urban Decay's line. I also think the price is reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay13 Great brush for precise applications
Like the previous reviewer I have smaller eyes which means I need a smaller brush to get to targeted areas. This brush is great for adding a small pop of color to the tear duct, the outer V and even getting liners in the right place.
The bristles are densely packed so this brush will pick up a lot of product if you are not careful.
I definitely recommend this product for people with smaller eyes or those that need precise applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahBeth Go-To for Liner Shadow
When I'm not using a pencil, liquid, or cream liner (which is usually when I'm in a huge hurry), I use my Naked palette and use Creep or Darkhorse as a liner shadow. This brush is kept in my Naked palette just for that! It's stiff but flexible, and it's tapered enough to get down close to my lash line. I could see this doubling as a lip brush, maybe even for concealer, but it's my go-to for liner shadow application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SDinIL Best precision smudger
I have smaller eyes so I need a brush that I can use to smudge but won't make me look like a raccoon. This is an incredible brush. Very well made. You can feel the quality. I have bought several UD brushes and all stand above anything else I have bought. I am going to purchase another one for putting on lipstick because it is soft but firm for making a line. Great job UD!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoyJoy If only I knew what to do with this...
I think this is confusing brush. Like all the other UD brushes I own, it's easy to clean, and sleek, but I don't find myself using it that often. I tried to use it as a concealer brush, but it's a little too small for that. I tried using it for powder eyeshadow, and it worked ok, but cream eyeshadow that I'm just trying to keep on the eyelid worked pretty well. I've also used it for eyeliner, and had success making a very thin like using only the side with gel or creme products. I've concealed a zit by just taking a *little* foundation and placing it on top of the blemish, then using my UD powder brush to brush a little powder over it, and that worked pretty well.
But none of that are things I really do every day. I've found all I really use it consistently for is a cream highlighter in the tear duct, but it's a stiff brush, and sort of hurts a little in that sensitive area.
All in all, a brush I would pass on.
