I am fortunate to work with MustaeV.

I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed MustaeV Bloom Pouch in Large (top). For this post, I will review the brush on the right.
Product Review: MustaeV #E55 Blending Shadow Brush

Where to purchase: online at
Price: $30

Made in Korea

Description from the website: An oval shaped, medium sized brush made of soft, deluxe natural hair that is great for naturally blending eye shadow on the eye or creating depth.
Thoughts: When I first received this product, I was excited. I have to be honest I first thought it was an eyeshadow brush. It's clearly written it's a blending brush. For some odd reason, it didn't get through my thick head. I will get into this more later.
Here's a closer look from tip to handle.
Here's a closer look at the hair on the brush.
Here's a closer look at the ferrule. It has the brand name on it.
It came with a brush protection. Some people throw them away. I actually use them for travelling, as well as, when I dry the brushes.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all and when I first saw this blending brush, it reminded me of this particular brush I own from another brand (higher end). The big difference was that particular brush was an eyeshadow brush and this is a blending brush. That eyeshadow brush got rough after one wash and I was disappointed. It was rough on the eyes and I spent a lot of money on it. Anyways, this brush looked exactly like it except it's slightly longer. For the longest time, I kept thinking it's an eyeshadow brush and used it that way. Yes, I'm not the most smartest at times. I kept thinking this isn't a great eyeshadow brush because it didn't pack much shadow on the eyes. Then a light flashed in my head and saw on the handle, it's a blending brush. I decided to mix the eyeshadows on the crease and it changed my life! Ever since I used it as a crease/blending brush, I stopped touching the one I used all the time. Secondly, it's a gorgeous aesthetic brush. The handle doesn't look black to me. It looks more a charcoal color but I could be wrong. The length of the handle is nice and the handle is thin. It's thin and long enough to hold for both small and big hands. The hair on the website says it's goat hair and it's white/cream color. To be honest, I don't know the difference of hairs. All that matters is that it's extremely soft on the skin. I've washed this several times and it's still soft like the first time I tried it. I hate when I use brushes and it pricks my skin. That's a big no no and this doesn't do that. Third, it's easy to wash. There were no bleeding and any loose hair during any of the washes. I wouldn't say it's the most condensed brush. Close to the ferrule it's tight but it gets slightly loose towards the tip of the hair. I wouldn't say it's that loose at the tip. It's the perfect looseness to blend the shadows. I hope that makes sense. The blending brush I used before this was more condensed and I noticed some parts in the inner crease area that didn't blend well. Since it was the best blending brush I owned, I still used it. Now this has changed my life because it blends how I want my shadows to be! Fourth, great blending brush. Since I have Asian eyes, I cannot use big blending brush. It'll be a hot mess and it'll blend everywhere. The crease area on my eyes are small compared to non-Asian eyes. This fit perfectly in my crease and doesn't go beyond. Not only that, it blends well on the outer v as well. I just need to pick up a little eyeshadow and darken the area. It blends where it is needed. Lastly, I'm so glad there was a spark in my head and saw it's a blending brush. It blends so well that I hardly touch any other brushes. I highly recommend this brush!
