Billy B Beauty Eye and Brow Brush Kit review.

Billy B. Beauty Eye and Brow Kit.

My goal was rather simply, or so I thought.  I was in search of a small fluffy angled blending brush to blend out my top liner to gradual perfection.  Just when I thought my search was in vain, I discovered Billy B on Youtube.  He intrigued me with his countless tattoos, his Buddy Holly black rimmed glasses, and raw/uncensored humor and demeanor.  He had me at,

“Sometimes you have to get out of your own way.”

Wiser words were never spoken.  Since that day five months ago, I could not help but purchase the Billy B Beauty Eye and Brow Kit ($65 US/5 tools and the brush roll).

Billy B Beauty Eye and Brow Brush Kit includes:

  1. Billy B Eyelash curler:  This curler is wonderful for people who have very rounded eyes, such as myself.  I prefer this curler to the Shu Uemura and Le Metier de Beaute curlers.  
  2. Brow spoolie and eyelash comb:  Not all eye brow spoolies are created equal.  Billy’s brow spoolie is very thin and compact, it is better suited to grab and brush all the hairs beautifully.  It also does not blend away all of your brow coloring.  The eyelash comb is made of the typical steel construction, which separates and combs out any clumpy mascara left on the lashes.  Both sides fold in neatly for easy storage or transport.  Genius!
  3. #8 Brush:  This little darling is perfect for people who have smaller eyes or want more precise eyeshadow application.  I use this to blend out colors in the outer “v”, apply an inner corner highlight, and a brow highlight.  The bristles are soft, compact and efficient.
  4. #11 Brush:  This brush is designed for application of powder or gel eyebrow color.  The hairs are shorter and very course, perfect for its intended job.  I use it to apply my tight line color to my upper waterline.  Not the recommended usage, but it works for me.
  5. #12 Brush:  The “jewel” of the lot.  I ♥ this brush!  I cannot go without using this brush everyday.  The #12 is a mini dual fiber angled brush.  I have very deep-set eyes and I do not like to wear dark colors all over my lid.  Therefore, I concentrate darker colors at the base of my lash line and blend them upwardly.  This brush does all the work for me.  The #12 is also great for applying and blending out colors on the lower lash line.  Billy uses this brush to apply crease color.  Genius!
  6. The Brush roll:  In the spirit of integrity, it is not the best in terms of quality or design.  The brush roll will not accommodate many brushes from other lines.  Billy designed this brush roll to fit his brushes exclusively.

Billy B #12 brush. My love.

All of his brushes have been designed to fit comfortably in your hand; the handles are on the shorter side than most standard makeup brushes.  Billy also designed his brushes with very minimal flash and flare. His original intent was to make these brushes for his personal use.  After several people asked where they would be able to purchase his brushes, the proverbial “light bulb” went off and Billy B Beauty was created.

Billy B Beauty is sold exclusively on Beautylish.com.  This web-store has the best customer service!

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you to overlook the appearance of these brushes and focus on the results they yield.  I personally love the #12 brush and will defend it till my last breath (Wow…that is love).  This little chestnut has crept its way into my HG eye brush category.  Do I think Billy B Beauty Eye and Brow Brush Kit is worth it?  Yes…considering the brushes separately cost roughly twenty dollars or more.  So if you are looking for some inspiration, check out Billy B on Youtube and experience first hand the genius under the unconventional exterior.  As always,

“Do not judge a book by its cover.”

Be well, stay safe and be happy.
