Askmewhats Reviews: CS Pink Angle Taklon Liner Brush

What to use for gel lining your eyes?
My favorite! If you must know, I love gel liners!
And I want to use the right brush to create a nice line!
Here's another review for another brush that can be use for gel lining!
Smile and read on!!!



Coastal Scents Pink Angle Taklon Liner says ---

1/4 " slant, fine and flexible.
Brush measures end to end 6"


Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • very inexpensive (talking about the brush itself)
  • does not shed at all
  • right length and perfect size
  • gives out a consistent line
  • with the right angle, easier for "newbies" in gel lining
  • brush hair doesn't hurt the eye
  • if you're into pinks --- It's PINK!!!
Cons
  • if you're NOT into pinks --- It's PINK!!! :P
  • the fat "base" of this CS Taklon liner is a bit "new" to me, I am never going to be used to it, though it was stated over website though that this brush is flexible! So it is meant to be flexible
  • since this brush is a bit fat, it grabs on more gel liner as opposed to the thinner eyeliner brushes
  • if you are into thin eyeliner: this isn't for you as the thinnest line would be shown on photo below. Applied using CS gel liner in True Black with the lightest hand


Overall


Again, not thinking about the shipping, this brush is super affordable especially if you are a first time gel liner user.

This is not a brush worth stocking on or going crazy for, but there is nothing bad about this brush that makes you toss and turn at night!


Tips
  • Share shipping with a friend
  • Perfect to use this to apply eyeshadow on the bottom lashes!
  • Great to use this to apply "eye primer" on the lower lash line too as this is made of taklon!
  • If you are looking into a "thin" eyeliner application, use "highest point" or the tip of the brush encircled in the photo below


Line using the tip only and the line will be thinner




Will I repurchase?

No, but I want to try the black one though, I've read the black one works better!


Where did I purchase and how much?

Coastal Scents website for $1.79 (approx Php85.00), excluding shipping. Shipping is freakin' pricey for international buyers!


More photos to give you more idea

the brushes I use for gel lining

Smashbox Brush no. 28
Here's me going for a thin line
(check out how I angle the brush to create this line)



And here's me going for a thicker line
(check out how I angle the brush to create this line)



Previously, I've done a review on the
CS White Angled Liner Brush
I am Nikki,
I make sure to fine ways to make something dysfunctional

FUNCTIONAL!

I've finally found the best way to use the brush!
Perfect for gel lining the WATERLINE!



Now, don't think that I'm using all 3 brushes at the same time everyday! LOL I'll be late for work! I actually use the liner brushes depending on my mood!

On days I love to have a thicker liner, I go for the Pink Angle Taklon Liner brush
On days, I want to have a simpler look, I use my Smashbox 28 brush
and everytime I want to line my waterline, CS White Angled Liner brush answers my prayers.

Hope this review is helpful to some of you who plans to purchase some CS brushes!
They are worth it for the price!
Happy Friday
and Stay Happy!

  1. Thanks for your review! I was thinking about getting it but since I'd prefer thinner liners, I think I'll wait and see how well the black one works.

  4. Most (all) of the time I don't like brushes with white bristle, they seem harder to clean...

    For gel liner, I am in love with the stila 28 line and smudge...it's designed for the smudge pots!

  17. Hey hey, just a question...are there any cheap and good gel liners available here in the Philippines? (I mean, like, I could physically go somewhere and buy it?)

    And, uh, do you know how much MAC fluidlines cost? :)

    Mwehe, sorry, andaming tanong. :D

    Haha, I need to start practicing, erm, learning this eyelining thing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. you know i never got the hang of the flat brushes but i'm thinking i should use that more now for more natural lines (i.e. when i do ppl who are scared of wearing makeup, lol)

    ReplyDelete
  19. B, I actually thought of that! I plan to use one for nails but I have to buy a 2nd one! hehhe Cheers to nail addicts in us!

    Gingerbee, I haven't personally tried them but I've heard Fanny Serrano gel liner works good, try The Face Shop's too! MAC Fluidlines costs around Php1,200 or something, not sure but around that rate :) IT's ok, keep the questions coming! hahha

    Renren, I know..it is difficult when some people are scared of eyeliners :)
