Here is the comparison of all my crease brushes. I loooove crease brushes even tho I don't have big crease to start with, guess that's why looking for a perfect one was my mission :)
I'd divided them into 3 groups by different text color, the same color has the same function and you may only need 1 from each color group if you want to go into details. But still, you may only need just ONE from all of them if you are not as anal as me :) So here we go.
MAC 224 - I don't need to go into detail since everyone knows about this brush! This brush is way too big for my asian crease but it blends like a dream! It makes the blending job suuuuper easy and it actually helps cut down my makeup time. I used it clean to blend out the harsh line instead of using it to place crease color.
Sonia Kashuk round crease - This is the old version so I'm not sure if its still available. This is only slightly smaller than 224 but does the same job. The handle is a bit flimsy so I think that affects the blendibility? still, just need to swipe a few more times and it does the job beautifully.
MAC 226 - It's very pointed and it's a bit firmer than the 224. It's good for defined crease work and blend at the same time. It fits Asian lids perfectly I will say.
Sephora Round crease #13 - This does exactly same job as 226 to me, and it's actually softer than 226. In the picture it doesn't look that pointed but it actually is. I carry this one in my makeup bag everyday for touch up. I like it just equally as 226!
MAC 222 - I will say this one is in between Black and Red group. It's small enough to go into my crease to place the color and it's good for blending as well. It's extremely soft and I love how it feels against my skin.
Coastal Scents small crease brush - This one is equally soft to 222 and does the same job. It looks pointed but it wasn't narrow enough to do the detail job as the red group. But it blends well and for the price this is the winner!
I love all of them and they all do slightly different jobs for me. But if I could only choose one..... I would probably pick 222.
Just my personal preferences :)
