And from time to time I get asked what brush I use with these eyeshadows as they're not quite powder, not quite cream, just a weird squishy hybrid mixture. The brush I use is this fabulous cheapie one from the Australian brand Models Prefer (sold at Priceline).
Ages and ages ago I was sent one of these brushes for free from Models Prefer PR, and ever since then it's become my HG eyeshadow brush so much so that recently I went and bought 3 more. I would have bought a whole lot more but they were all sold out at my local Priceline!

Why do I love it so much?
- Short, dense bristles mean that it picks up the right amount of colour with no fallout
- It's great for packing colour on the lid, and also for blending out any harsh lines and of course I don't just use it with the Color Infallibles but with any powder eyeshadow.
- Shorter than usual handle means it's more convenient to hold. So if you're like me and practically step inside the mirror when you're applying your eye makeup, you don't have to worry about any long handles hitting the mirror as you work.
- It's excellent value at $9.95aud (in comparison, a similar MAC e/s brush is $45aud)
I haven't tried any of the other brushes in the range yet but I definitely will as soon as my local Priceline tops up the Models Prefer stock, as last time I was there there were hardly any brushes left, just the testers. Just goes to show you don't need to spend a lot of money to get good quality items.
What's your favourite brush? Do you invest in high price brushes or are you happy to give cheaper brands a chance?
