The Large Shader is made of natural pony hair. It's a dense, paddle shaped brush and the size is somewhere between a MAC 227 and 239, as you can see from the comparison photos. The tip is rounded and very dense and fluffy. It's possible to use this brush in a few different ways: you can use the flat side to press colour on to the lid, use the tip to apply colour to the outer corner or sweep colour into the crease. It's even quite useful for applying highlighter on the brow bone. With quite a large head it's very good for covering a large area of the eye quickly. I have included a picture of it against my eye to put the size in to context.

The Crease brush is made from goat hair. It has a fluffy, tapered shape with a slightly domed tip and looks similar to a MAC 224. How it differs from the 224 and other similar blending brushes, is that it is flat in profile. I have attempted to take pictures to show you what I mean but I'm not sure it's that clear. For me this is too large and not firm enough for defined crease work but it is good for soft definition in the crease or adding a sheer wash of colour. I will warn you that as it feels so soft you'll want to keep sweeping it over your eye, even when you no longer need to!

These brushes have done nothing to quell my desire for one of their face brushes. I imagine it would feel just like stroking my face with a teddy. I'm sure I'll crack at some point and order one.
I bought these brushes from www.zuneta.com who ship worldwide. The large shader is priced £21 and the crease brush is £16.
