Hello and thanks for visiting my post.

The limited edition by RT of the Crush Brush not only stands out with its design, but also with the functions it shows. For instance, they added a fanning highlighter brush, which wasn’t present in the collection before. Or for example a big #301 Foundation brush, which is actually a big and dual fibre brush, which I’ve already reviewed recently.


So now it’s time to have a look at one more brush from the same collection #305 Shadow.


I won’t describe the package design, because I’ve already described it in my previous review and here the packages look almost the same.


There you can find all the necessary product info like the manufacturer, product promises and so on.



The brush was put into a special stand to protect it while shipping.


This design ensures that a brush will be a great present for your mother, sister or bestie.


The brush consists of:

Bristles - they are specially made taklon, which is really close to the natural hairs softness-wise. However, it also ensures good washing off. The brush will go longer with such bristles and the blending will look better with it as well.

The bristles have a round cut, which actually allows to create a shadow effect on your mobile lid and lower lids too. The brush doesn't have a dense pack, which means the blending will be very light and seamless.

The ferrule is made of aluminum, colored golden. This material doesn’t corrode over time, be sure that the brush will work for years for you and will never let you down.

The plastic handle is covered with a thick layer of glitter, which doesn't transfer when you touch it. Visually it looks really interesting, creating such a fish scale effect.


How to use the brush?

How and when can you use this brush? I can’t say that there’s a sense to use it for your full eye makeup, but I’m sure that you can do the most part of the blending with it, especially if you keep your makeup in the same colors.


At first I applied a long-wearing pigment of beige color by The Saem with this brush. I use that product as my eye makeup primer. Then I apply it all over my lid, covering even the crease, and then go down to the lower lid.

After that I apply the main salmon color to the crease and lower lid, getting into the mobile lid a little.


I deepen the color with a peachy shade from the same palette ColourPop Yes, Please, applying the shade to the blending areas.


After that I take a little bit of the venous color and apply it to the corners, blending it out in the crease.

Then I apply some golden pigment to the inner corners of my eyes. The azure kajal goes to the waterline. And I finish my look with a matte lipstick, which I use as an eyeliner.

As you can see, the most part of the blending for this makeup was done with this RT brush. It was pretty easy to do it, by the way.

I also really like the size of brush and the shape of the cut. They will be great even for small eyes.

The quality of the bristles and ferrule is on fleek, as always. All is sturdy and there wasn’t a bristle to shed during washing. The brush also doesn’t take long to dry out.

Is it a necessary brush for an everyday eye makeup? Yes, it is, if you use more than one shade of eyeshadows and want to get beautiful and soft blending.

I definitely recommend this brush!
