[compared to Bdellium's 714 Brush]Gloss Professional Eye Pencil Blending Brush (what a mouthful lol) has a lacquered wooden handle with a firmly affixed black metal ferrule. Dense white nylon bristles, cut precisely straight across, protrude from the ferrule. Gloss' white bristled brushes wash surprisingly well, they never seem to stain and even thick, dried gel eyeliner slides right out. This brush has never shed a single bristle. The synthetic white nylon bristles dry very quickly. Gloss' Professional Eye Pencil Blending Brush has held it's shape very well, with no splaying to speak of.
Gloss Professional Eye Pencil Blending Brush is quite nice for smudging pencil liners, and their gel and cream counterparts. For being so cheap, this brush is sturdily constructed. The nylon bristles are easy to keep clean and hold their shape well. I don't reach for this brush particularly often, but I'm never disappointed when I do. I recommend Gloss' Professional Eye Pencil Blending Brush if its available to you.
