MAC Blending Brush 217 : Photos, Review, EOTD

If there is one eye make up brush that I love as much as MAC 219 then it would be definitely MAC 217. Be it a beginner or a pro this brush would take care of all those harsh lines and makes blending a cakewalk. I started my brush collection only with eye make up brushes and this one was highly recommended by all fellow bloggers. I was restless until I found this one and read the review to know if it is worth all the hype.

Description

MAC says - "For shading or blending of colour or creamy products. This brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature wood handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules."

The oval shaped brush with bristles packed in the right way makes blending so easy. This is again a multi purpose brush. You can use this to deposit eye shadow and blend it as well. It is easy to pick up eyeshadow and it helps in even application. This makes the entire job of eye make really easy. The bristles are soft and fluffy and does not prick the skin at all. I have been using this for more than 6 months and till now there is no shedding of bristles till now. If you are interested in eye makeup and you need just 1 brush then I would recommend 217 to you.

  • Helps applying eye shadow.
  • Helps to blend eye shadow.
  • Blending becomes super easy with this brush.
  • Lengthy handle for a good grip.

Dislikes
  • Over regular usage the white bristles change color as the eye shadows stain them. The stain doesn't go even with thorough cleaning.

Price

The cost of MAC Blending Brush 217 is Rs.1750. I am sure MAC would have hiked the cost by now !

Verdict

MAC 217 is an amazing brush both for depositing the eye color and blending them too. No wonder why it was raved by so many you tube bloggers. Though it costs a lot, it is not like a lipstick or any other cosmetic product that would get over some day. These good quality makeup brushes are definitely worth all the hype. I am sure once you start using it you wouldn't mind the amount spent on it. I highly recommend this brush for all eye makeup lovers. It definitely makes your job a lot more easy.
