From Nordstrom Website:
Burberry Eye Brush No. 09 is a long-bristled blending brush with a slight point. Made from ultrasoft goat hair, it is used to apply eyeshadow at the tip to create a deeper, but soft, socket line. Used by Burberry Beauty makeup artists to create an effortless smoky eye look.This is a pretty straightforward description of Burberry No. 09 Socket Line Brush. Whisk-shaped crease/blending brushes are among the most useful tools a makeup user can have in his or her inventory. Depending on the eye size and shape you can use them to apply color, diffuse and blend it. The rounder and thicker brushes are more suited for blending and or applying a sheer wash (the Edward Bess Luxury Eye Brush is the perfect example). The smaller and pointier Paula Dorf Crease Brush is also a good tool for defining the crease of deep set eyes and/or large lids (Le Metier de Beaute Crease brush is also a top contender in this category).
Like Chanel #12, Burberry 09 is somewhere in the middle and can multitask depending on the eye shadow you're using and your eye shape. While the Burberry brush has a similar feel and heft as the Chanel (both are lighter than the superbly weighted Edward Bess). It is very well made, just like other Burberry makeup brushes (a review of No. 10 coming soon), wonderfully soft and pretty.
Bottom Line: quickly becoming a favorite.
Burberry No. 09 Socket Line Brush ($38) is a Nordstrom exclusive (at least for now), available at select location and online.
