my favourite mac brush! Can be used to lightly sweep colour over the lid, use to pit highlighter on or what I mainly use it for smokey eyes! I swear I have to do no work with this brush it does it all! I have big eyes so it works well however I think if you have smaller eyes your better off with the pencil brush. Some may think this is weird but I sometimes use this brush to contour my nose as it shape really helps! But then I guess its personal preference!
I love this brush! I have really small lids and a small crease area (I'm part Asian). I tried using the 217 brush first but I didn't like how it blended. And it felt like it was tugging at my eye when I used it :/ So I just apply a harsh line on my crease and blend it out with the 224! It's great and soft. If you have small lids and area hesitating at buying this, don't. give it a shot. It is expensive but a lot of good quality brushes are.
EDIT: I recommend the 226 brush instead of the 224. It is better for blending and defining the crease...and definitely perfect for Asian eyelids (monolids or just small lids).
love it! i guess you can find a cheaper brush that does the same job but i got it as a gift so no complains at all ! .
this brush is perfect for adding a wash of color on the crease and may also be used to highlight the brow bone.. just make sure its clean first.
This brush is amazing! Superior for blending. I was a little worried that it might be too big for my eyes, but it keeps the color where I want it. I first started with the SE version from a kit & instantly fell in love. I reach for this more than I do the 217.
Not a bad product but the Paula Dorf eye crease brush is fabulous! Not too easy to find but a superior brush for crease blending.
great brush for blending...a must-have in my book!
I have been using my two brushes since 1993! I keep one for a soft wash on lid or highlight, and the other for a darker crease color. I love the way it gently distributes the darker shade along my crease line and a bit on my upper lid as well as on my outer corner without fancy handwork.
at first i thought this brush was useless, but when i started practicing putting eyeshadow on, i found this to be really useful. it really does DO the job for you! blending is easy now!
So, I've had this brush sitting in my train case for quite some time and never used it until recently. A friend bought me a brush set a few years ago and I didn't know what the heck to do with this brush. I've recently gotten into the art of eyeshadow and kept hearing "blend, blend, blend". Well, the light bulb went off and I realized I had a valuable gem just sitting and collecting dust. Wow! I've got to say this makes everything so easy...blending, light wash of color, etc. I'm no pro at eyeshadow application but using this brush I've been able to achieve some beautiful looks. This is a must have brush!
ive been coveting this brush for quite sometime, and I'm so happy i finally purchased it. amazing brush, phenomenal results...worth every penny.
