Beauty on a Budget: Blend Shadows Out on the Cheap with the NYX Crease Brush

My fav brush is the MAC 224 but at nearly $30 for a single brush, well, this blending action doesn’t come cheap! If you’re currently looking for a budget alternative that will fit comfortably within the crease the NYX Crease Brush should do the trick cheaply!

Check it!

This brush will set you back $9 and in some cases cheaper depending where you shop it! The bristles run a little shorter than the 224 and a bit softer with less density but it still manages to fit nicely into my crease and performs that legendary window wiper motion that blurs and blends out shadow.

It doesn’t shed and the bristles are decently soft. Since it runs a bit smaller you’ll have a little less fall out to worry about as well. If you want you can double it up as a concealer setting powder brush as well to pick up small amounts of transparent powder and buff it gently under your eyes to set concealer.

If you simply can’t dish out $29 for MAC’s version, I highly suggest grabbing this one as it works a treat and you’ll have an extra $20 in your pocket saved.

Have you used the NYX Crease Brush?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse are you psychic? I was just about to buy this yesterday! But I didn’t know if it was good or not. Now I know 😀

    I want it! I looked at ULTA (Only place I’ve seen NYX sold) And They didn’t have it… Where can I get it? Do you know?
