I am so happy I discovered Ben Nye on the internet. Thank you makeupalley! I wanted a good dupe brush for the MAC dome eyeshadow brush #222. This brush is almost identical in appearance to the MAC # 219. They had two sizes and I picked the smaller one, I think the larger brush (FDB-2) would have been a good dupe for the MAC 222. Anyway, this brush is a small bristled eyeshadow brush that comes to a point, almost like the head of a pencil, it can be used to deposit eyeshadow into the crease of the eye or to help smudge out an eyeliner to creat a smokey eye look. I tested out the brush today and it worked great. I was able to shade the crease of my eye with 3 different colors and it blended them all out beautifully. The brush itself is high quality, no shedding present as of yet. The MAC brush is 23$ and I got this brush from BEn Nye for 7.50$ Overall I am very happy I purchased this brush and saved myself a lot of money.
