MAC Eye Shader Brush 239 : Photos, Review

I just started investing in some good brushes and having tried brushes from TBS and INGLOT, MAC was in the list next. Once I started trying MAC I don't feel like going back to any other brands at all ! I am really satisfied with my MAC brushes. Today I am reviewing an Eye Shader Brush - 239 [MAC has numbered their brushes and that is how we ask for them at the stores] which was raved by all bloggers around me. I have used this brush a couple of times and washed once. So here comes the review for you, straight away !


MAC Eye Shader Brush 239

Description

MAC says - Soft and dense to shade or blend eye shadow or emollient-based products. This brush has a tapered rounded edge with smooth firm fine fibres. It can be used to build intense color on the eyelid. M.A.C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature wood handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules.

I always wanted a good blending brush and an eye shadow brush as I have seen them doing so much magic on my eyes. Since the blending brush was out of stock I went ahead and bought the Eye Shader Brush 239. It is a flat medium sized, dome shaped brush that is fluffy enough to deposit the right amount of color on my eyes. It can also blend, crease, smudge and highlight but I just use it for depositing and blending. I like using it both ways. The bristles are soft and it is easy to build the color with this brush. Didn't notice much product wastage and it doesn't shed too !! It stains a bit so I make sure I clean it soon after every usage and through cleaning once a week.

Verdict

I never thought depositing eye color on my lids could be so easy. If I have been doing it for 5 minutes all these days, with this brush it just takes me few seconds. With these brushes I hardly need 10 minutes for my entire eye make up !! I have used the brush HERE and it deposits the color so well. I so badly need the blending brush now. Even if you are just beginning to experiment colors on your eyes I highly recommend you to get this brush and have fun adding color to your lids :)
