MAC Pencil Brush 219 : Photos, Review, EOTD

I have been spending a lot on skin care and cosmetics and never invested in real good make up brushes. All I have are the ELF ones and the travel size INGLOT ones. My stash always looked incomplete without the necessary make up tools like the brushes and so are my EOTDs ! I was never 100% happy with the way they looked :( I wanted to invest in good make up brushes and I choose the brand MAC without any second thoughts. My first purchase was this pencil brush and here is my review about it.


MAC Pencil Brush 219

Description

MAC says - For precision shading on lid, in eye crease or along lash line. The soft, smooth fibers of this brush are gathered into a pencil-shaped tip. It is ideal for blending eyeliner into eye shadow to create a smoky looking eye. M.A.C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature wood handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules. 

My first MAC brush is this Pencil Brush 219 and I am totally loving it. The brush is really firm with tightly and closely packed bristles that looks like a pencil tip. It is easy to pick up color in this brush and it does multitasking - deposit color on the corners and crease, blending eye liner or eye shadows on upper and lower lash line and smudging them for a great smoky eyes. I use them for all the above purpose and have washed the brush a couple of times. Luckily no shedding so far but the colors stains the brush a bit. How much ever I clean the brush the color stays and that makes the brush look little dirty. However that does not mix with the colors we use nor affect the performance of this brush in anyway. The lengthy brush makes it convenient to use.

Price

The price of MAC Pencil Brush 219 is Rs.1550 but the new price is Rs.1750 ! Guess MAC, Chennai still has the old stock - good for me ;)

Smudged the liner on upper lash line with MAC 219 - EOTD

Verdict

If you are into eye make up then I would say this multitasking pencil brush is a must-have. I highly recommend this easy to use pencil brush that makes your eye make up so easy-peasy. I am so impressed with my first MAC brush that I am planning to buy one every month and make a good collection. These brushes are a good investment for make up lovers and I will always relish this purchase - my first MAC brush - Pencil Brush 219.

  3. Lovely EOTD dear, I have been using the elf pencil brush and never felt the need to change it up but you are tempting me, also I think since it is synthetic its better suited for blending pigments too. Nice review

  5. I own MAC angled eye liner brush, the huge powder brush and their blush brush... I love the blush brush and the eye liner brush, but not so much the face brush... It tends to micro-exfoliate my skin... and i hate that tingly pokey feeling!

    Cant say much about their eye brushes because I dont ever do eye looks!
