HOURGLASS No. 3 All-Over Shadow Brush Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

HOURGLASS No. 3 All-Over Shadow Brush is yet another recent purchase that I made. Once again, I had been contemplating this brush for a while, and finally decided to treat myself. This vegan and cruelty-free medium sized eyeshadow brush, with its soft Taklon bristles, features a nicely weighted metal handle that offers perfect control and balance. The bristles are velvety soft against the skin, and yet not so soft as to be ineffective. It picks up and deposits shadows effortlessly, and can be used for powder, liquid and cream products. It also is quite effective in is ability to blend shadows, and it is very easy to clean. I have washed mine three times, and I haven't lost a single bristle.
According to Hourglass,

The Hourglass Nº 3 All Over Eye Shadow brush seamlessly applies, layers and blends powder eye shadow over the entire lid.
• Features PETA-approved, high-grade, ultra-soft Taklon bristle.
• Taklon is a more hygienic alternative to animal hair and an excellent alternative for those who suffer from animal hair allergies.
• Weighted metal handles provide control for effortless blending and application. 
• May be used to apply liquid, cream or powder products.
• Vegan and cruelty free.
Overall Assessment: This was a lovely gift to myself, and once again I wish that I had purchased this brush sooner since I reach for it all of the time.

$36.00 from HOURGLASS, Nordstrom, Sephora, Beautylish, Space NK, Bluemercury, Ulta, Harvey Nichols and Cult Beauty (Affiliate Links).

  1. I like the shape of this brush better than your other Hourglass. Of course I'd love them all but this is the one I really want.

    1. This is basically the perfect shape for the application of shadow to the lid. It is definitely worth having– especially if you pick it up at Sephora or Ulta during a sale!

  2. Hmmm, this particular size/shape brush is the workhorse of brushes for me. Looks like another winner from Hourglass!

    1. Exactly the same way that I feel about this soap, and this is a particularly wonderful brush!
