A project for this year will be to get decent lighting and photography material so this stops being a problem, but that is a lot of money to invest and I have other projects to save for as well so... for now I'll have to do with my Ixus and daylight, when I can get any.
As you can see, the weather hasn't held me from shopping! I don't know why exactly but i recently developped an obsession about getting an angled shader brush. I think in my mind, I was imagining this would apply shadow and blend at the same time and would be great for quick and easy looks.
During a little visit with friends at a Laura Mercier counter, I decided to get their Angled Eye Colour Brush.
It is seriously angled, as you can see. It is also 100% natural hair, so not suitable for vegans.
And actually it doesn't really do what I think it would do, although that is entirely my fault : this is a very stiff brush, and you cannot blend with it, I should have known better when I bought it.
On the other hand, the surface is quite large. It will pick up quite a lot of product, scratching the surface of your eyeshadows a little bit, and then it will apply the color efficiently and easily all over the lid.
If you have very small eyes, this is not going to be a brush for you as it is quite big. Unless you like your wash of eyesadow to go quite far up, like I do, you will find this is not precise enough.
For me, I actually like it. I'm used to using the huge Mac 227 to apply large washes of color and this one is a good substitute for it. But - it doesn't really blend and won't save you the extra blending brush and time.
