Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little brush! This smudge brush is great - I primarily use it for smudging eyeliner. The brush has very short densely packed bristles. It works okay for blending eyeliner, but perhaps it's a little too coarse. Since it's rubbing on a very sensitive part of my eye, I just wish the brush was a bit softer and maybe a bit less dense. Before, when I would use smudgers (similar to beauty blender), my eyes didn't feel so irritated. I have read it works beautifully for blending the perfect smokey eye so maybe it will be a bit less harsh on the lids than on the eyelash line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Brush I bought this brush because my others were old, and when the make up artist applied my liner with it it looked great with no real trick. I bought it and it was money well spent

Rated 4 out of 5 by from With NARS, the "Eyes" Have It! No one with as many brushes as I have, acquired over a period of decades, needs another one, but a very old and cumbersome NARS smudging tool of mine went missing, and based on a current NARS video, I was persuaded that I did indeed crave, if not actually require, this understated elegant and sophisticated version, now designed to put one in mind of the spike heels of Christian Louboutin pumps. It has "sole"! Here chic meets impractical because the brush can be difficult to locate if stored, as mine is, in a cylindrical container with many others. The new model has a black handle with a small scarlet base reminiscent of the coveted Sammy Red-Bottoms that readily seduce those who appreciate quality, luxury, and sleek, spare modernism. Still, because it's hidden, and the black handle isn't especially distinctive and doesn't bear the name of the manufacturer, this subtle siren can be elusive. Stylistic concern and attendant frustration aside, I love this beauty. It works to apply color to the lash lines as well as to smudge, though surely one should be very, very young to want to smear and blur color under lower lash lines where older folks have dark circles and possibly bags. I say, "Save this technique for the runway!" I don't want to look as though I need sleep desperately or didn't take the time to apply my makeup carefully. This less-defined outlining is for the *top* lid, where it can look smokey and sultry. If your liquid liner or pencil doesn't provide lines that are sustained and pronounced, this brush, dipped in dry eye shadow, will compensate by providing the added pigment and drama you seek. It corners well too. The pressure applied feels just right, and the result is perfect. Based on age and venue, a trendy eye makeup look has its limitations. I fear that the number of brushes I own may not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Smudge Brush! I love NARS makeup Brushes! This smudge brush is as soft as mink, which is very important because you use it around the delicate lids of the eye. I love that it deposits eye shadow perfectly just like an eye liner. With the smudge brush, it is like having any colour of eye liner you want, because it deposits the eye shadow powder perfectly onto the lid and lower lid of the eye into endless different colours. I use the eye primer cream on the upper eye lid and underneath the eye and the colours stay in place all day long! I also like to use the eye pots and add eye shadow with the smudge brush on top to get and endless and different colours of eye liner. This smudge brush is essential for creative and beautiful colours of liners and it also softens and corrects eye liner harshness and mistakes with one gentle stroke. So easy to use!!!
