Elianto is a cosmetic brand with items sourced from countries like Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Korea. Prices are hard to beat for the quality of their products and the brand is rather popular in Malaysia. This is a review of the Elianto shading brush [Nose Shading Brush (H) (07P)]. Although it is called a nose shading brush, it looks a lot like a small pencil brush.
Bristles: Pony hair and slightly tapered towards the tip. Bristle colour gradually darkens at the tip. Very loosely packed; more like a blending brush rather than a pencil brush.
Ferrule: Metal with a shiny finish.
Handle: No information about this (I am assuming it is wooden). It has a matte finish and is quite sturdy.
Price: MYR 19.90 (Elianto often has discounts, so this price is subject to discounts and offers).
Where to buy: Elianto counters nationwide.
The price is amazing for a specialised brush made out of natural hairs.
The ferrule and handle are pretty sturdy.
Does quite a good job at blending although I have never used it for its intended purpose (nose shading).
Perfect for precise blending because it is so small and loosely packed.
The bristles initially shed because of the fact that it is made of natural hair.
A lot more goes into caring for them (not beginner friendly). I use a gentle two in one shampoo and conditioner. Also takes a longer time to clean and dry.
I am completely on the fence with this one and it is entirely your choice to make a decision.
