Good but not great I use this for my lids or to highlight under my brows. Any other brush can do that just as well and it would probably be cheaper. It is soft and when I wash it, it does not shead so it is durable I suppose. Ive had mine for about 3 years.
I love 275 it's not only amazing for eyes, also for countour my nose.
This is just ok- not good, not great. I'm not particularly impressed by this brush. Overall it does a so-so job but I have found it tends to flick eyeshadow dust where I don't want it. 'Tis going on my swap list.
great for the outer-v and the outer crease. blends great.
Holy baloney, this brush is the t**ts for a discrete yet fab outer V crease color! I've tried the Sephora angled shadow brush and the Elf one, but one was a wee bit too large, the other a wee bit too small. This is perfect. And, cheapskate that I am, I even got the SE version to save a few bucks. And even this economy version is a great, soft, outer contour brush. Just load it up with a dark shadow and wiggle it, larger, angle side perpendicular up, into your outer eye corner. Instant depth and contour. Especially good for hooded eyes, and I should know, I've got 'em!
This brush is amazing but it gets over looked so much! Honestly, it does everything I want it to. I've discovered its amazing for concealer (even though it does take a teeny bit longer to buff in the concealer, but you get a perfect flawless finish), as well as being great for applying a wash of colour on the lid, blending out harsh lines, applying highlight to the brow bone and colour to the inner tear duct, crease work, depositing colour on the outer-v, and applying powder to the under-eye area. Heck I even use it to apply eye cream when I don't want to use fingers, as its hairs are soft enough and angled so fits right into the corners. Extremely underrated and a fabulous multi-tasker. Definitely in my top 5 brushes, and would immediately repurchase if I ever lost it
I am very sad that this brush is discontinued. I "rediscovered" makeup about 16 months ago, and this brush was recommended by Leesha on YouTube. I must say, boy was she right! No other brush in my collection (and in the last 16 months, I've gotten quite a few) provides the dimensional color depositing that I need. Using it to place the color at the outside of my eye lid, and then using a windshield wiper motion to blend is my application of choice. I ended up buying this from eBay, and I'm not disappointed. I was lucky, I was able to get it for a reasonable price, but I am not looking forward to the day when I'm going to have to replace it! I'm constantly on the look-out for a backup! I can't say enough about the value of this brush. If you see one, BUY IT!!!
I have had this brush for quite some time and never really used it. Recently I have been watching tutorials for "hooded eyes" (I have naturally hooded eyes that have started to grow larger with age) on youtube for makeup tricks and tips to de-emphasize the hood and better define my crease. I have found a few gurus that use this brush especially for that purpose. I have started to follow their tips and tricks and now really appreciate this brush!! The 275 really helps me apply shadow to my crease and de-emphasize my hooded eye. Super happy that I'm finally able to find a good use for this brush.
Lovely soft fibres, looks very chic too. I use this for application, blending, contouring, whatever! Doesn't bother me. Nothing special though, the only thing that stands out above other brands is the soft hairs. However some of mine have started to fall out! Which is very annoying...
I feel like I owe this brush an apology. When I first got it I tried it once or twice but all my attempts failed rather spectacularly, so I left it in my brush bag unused for some time. I eventually pulled it out again and decided to have another go, and I'm so glad I did. I use this mainly as a crease brush, although I'm sure it's great for other uses, too. At the moment I'm going through a phase of using a lot of matt colours, and I'm really liking the look of a strong, defined crease. The bristles on this brush are super soft but firm, and it's perfect for working into the crease (or creating a slightly higher crease, in my case) and blending. My eyes are fairly small and somewhat deep set which I think is why I originally struggled with this brush, and my only suggestion to MAC would be that I would LOVE to see an almost identical brush made by them that is just fractionally smaller. As it is I can definitely work with this brush and I think it would be great for most people, but if you have smaller eyes and not a lot of lid space it takes a bit more practice.
Regardless, I love this brush and intend to purchase a back up. Quality wise it's at the upper end for MAC brushes, I have yet to notice it shed and it is used and washed regularly.
