My take on Sigma E56 Lid Shader brush: The brush handle is slim and is easy to grip onto. Since it is long, you can get a good grip on it and achieve precise application of eyeshadow on the lid. The brush bristles are synthetic, and pick up color really very well. I mean, there are some eyeshadows that are really very chalky and powdery, and fall out a lot. This is the brush that I like using with those shadows. It really ‘controls’ them well. The pointed tip helps in achieving precise application, especially around the inner corners of the eyes.

The brush is flat in shape, and helps in layering shadows (and not blending). That said, if you are working with just one eyeshadow, this is the only brush that you need! It also works well with cream based products like eyeshadows, primers and paint pots, since it is a close-packed brush. (Psst… if you want, you can use this brush for concealer application too, provided you have a clean, fresh brush).

It is an easy to wash and quick-drying brush. Highly recommended!
