About a month ago, I raved about the Gosh Round Eyeshadow brush and now it’s time to talk about another brush from Gosh, the Flat Eyeshadow Brush, that I bought in London a few months ago. Seriously, why aren’t these brushes more easily available worldwide? They’re awesome! Well, at least their eye brushes are. I can’t speak for the face ones as I haven’t tried them but after my positive experiences with these two brushes I’m so tempted to.
The Gosh flat eyeshadow brush has a black handle, that looks sleek and professional, while the bristles are brown pony hair. I know not everyone likes brushes with natural bristles but I don’t have a problem with them and I like that being brown, they don’t get stained and are easy to clean.
The brush has the perfect shape. It is flat, slightly domed with dense bristles that pick up quite a lot of product straight away ensuring great color payoff with just one or two swipes. I find this type of brush works extremely well at packing eyeshadows onto the lid. In addition, the bristles feel extremely soft on the skin, not scratchy at all.
Although this brush is designed to apply colors on the lid, and does it very well, if I’m in a rush, I also use it to blend colors on the crease and I find that it works quite well that way too. It’s not as precise as the Round blush for blending, but if you’re in a hurry or wearing natural colors instead than crazily bright looks that need to be blended to perfection or they just look awful, then this’ll do too.
I’ve been using this brush for a few months now and wash it regularly. It has never shed a hair, nor did it bleed. In addition, the bristles still retain their shape well after washing and they are still as soft as the day I bought it.
Available at: Superdrug stores in the UK and Shoppers Drug Marts in the USA.
If you’re looking for an eyeshadow brush to apply colors on the lid, Gosh Flat Eyeshadow Brush is a great option. The bristles are very soft but dense and pick up a lot of product for a pigmented finish in just one swipe. In addition, they don’t shed, don’t bleed and are natural. Plus, the price is cheap too!
