This is a review on the Smashbox Cosmetics’ #3 Blending Brush.
Sadly, there are those reviews that are not good, and this is one of them. I thought adding Smashbox’s #3 Blending brush to my brush collection seemed like a great idea. It looked as if it would be the perfect brush to use when applying eye shadows. However, I was sadly mistaken because it did not live up to my expectations. Smashbox’s #3 Blending brush left my eye colors muddy, and even lost some of its bristles!
I purchased Smashbox’s # 3 Blending brush on sale directly from Smashbox.com. I had 30 days to return the brush for an exchange or full refund with no questions asked. I have not done so because their return policy did not include return shipping. They recommend returning the merchandise UPS ground insured, or use US Postal Service insured ground shipment because they are not responsible for items lost in the mail. This remedy would not be cost effective for me because by the time I mailed it, I would come close to paying full retail for it.
This product retails for $32.00, but I purchased it on sale for $16.00.
~Does not blend eye shadows well
~Handle is not as sturdy as other brushes
Overall, I rate the Smashbox’s #3 Blending brush at 1 out of 5 sugarcubes. I found it very disappointing that Smashbox would offer such a low quality product. Regrettably, I would not be able to recommend it.
Note: I purchased this product with my own money.
