If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably think make-up brushes are a waste of time, money and make-up. After all, we all have fingers that do the job just as well… don’t they?
Well, maybe not. The Get Bent brush for eyeliner made by kitsch and cool cosmetics company, Benefit, has turned me into a complete brush convert.
You might think the £11.50 price-tag is a bit much for a twig of wood with some bristles attached. But here you would be wrong. Firstly, £11.50 is actually not that bad by professional make-up brush standards – just check out Mac’s massive range of brushes, for which you’d probably need to spend your entire student loan on if you wanted the complete set. Secondly, and most importantly, this brush will actually save you money!
Using this brush transforms any powder eyeshadow into an eyeliner. The bristles are uniquely angled to create the perfect line as close to the lashes as possible, with the brush hard enough to get the job done perfectly and professionally, but not hard enough to poke your eye out.
Gone are the days of struggling with easily-blunted rock-hard pencils and unruly and messy liquids (one slip and you wind up looking like a member of the Adams family) – instead, just dab the Get Bent brush in water, swirl it about in your favourite eyeshadow and let the angled bristles do all the work for you. This multi-tasking of eyeshadows effectively means you never need waste money on eyeliners again. It’s also perfect for creating those fluorescent lined eyes that the likes of Lily Allen have been sporting recently and gives you a far greater range of colour options than the stock brown and black eyeliners that most make-up counters offer.
In short, a true make-up miracle.
