Ok, I hope this doesn't make me look stupid. lol. But I know the crease brush is for the crease in the eye area, but isn't most blending usually done in that area? I'm not quite sure why I would need a separate one. Is the crease brush just to apply the eyeshadow onto the crease, not to blend it? But couldn't I achieve the crease with a regular e/s brush by using the edge?
beauty is pain.

Blending is an all over the eye thing... You use it to blend lid colors, crease colors, and above the crease and the browbone. A crease brush is more firm and used for applying color in the crease, it is usually a round ferruled brush with a pointed tip.
I can see why the flamethrower was invented. There was someone who was sitting down thinking "I'm here, you're there, and I want to light you on fire..."

It is really nice to have a crease brush and a blending brush. I think I use my crease brush more often than my blending brush. Sometimes I'll just apply my shadows with a blending brush rather than using a regular eye shadow shader brush.
