I can't believe I went this long without this brush. It completely changes the amount of time it takes me to do my eyes. I'm an eye freak and I thought that the 5 eye brushes I already had were more than enough to get the job done. Wrong. I'd get caught up with the blending of colors, never happy because I couldn't get the "blend" just right. Well, it was totally because I wasn't using the right brush. This brush allows for EXACT placement of crease and under-lash color (you MUST have this brush to do a smokey eye). It deposits a lot of color, which is good, 'cause then you just take a blender brush and stroke in and above the crease to blend it all together. I am thrilled to death.
i bought this for crease work and it works perfectly. yes the tip is very precise as the brush is shaped like a pencil but its full enough that you can make the sideways < at the corner of your eyes. the 219 brush applies crease color very precisely just where i need it and then i blend the color out so that there are no harsh lines. it was wround $24 CDN but hopefully the brush will last longer than any other cheapie kinds and so be well worth the price. though its no the typical crease brush that MAC artists reccommend, the 224 was too floppy which just led to annoyance on my part. the best thing to do is go to MAC and talk about your needs and then decide yourself what brush would suit you.
I'm so glad I didnt spend the $$$ on the cargo mini crease brush. Because this MAC brush works just as well!! It deposits eyeshadow so nicely and evenly into the crease and works GREAT as a smudger. High quality like all MAC brushes. The only thing that slightly bothers me is it's white bristles so you have to wash this brush often :)
The PERFECT crease brush. This is completely goof-proof, since I'm a spaz and tonight I successfully managed to deposit color in my crease without looking like I accidentally smeared something random on my face. So easy to use, and it has the perfect amount of firmness -- soft and gentle on your eyes, but firm enough to control exactly where you want to shade. Rave! p.s. I bought mine at Nordstrom for $19 and Gloss.com has it for $21, go fig.
Great brush...does all that has been described below. I've also used it with BB gel eyeliners on bottom rim and to "push" the gel into my upper-eyelashes (gently lifting lid to get proper angle). Works and washes very well!!!
YES I would buy this product again, but I doubt I will ever have to...unless I loose it! I just wanted to add that I LOVE this brush!! It works BEAUTIFULLY in the crease and it's AWESOME at creating that V on the outer corner for that smokey look! It's not hard to use at all....in fact it was one of the easiest brushes I have ever used. I wouldn't be without it from this day on...highly recommended!!
This is the perfect brush to use for setting pencil eyeliner with powdered e/s. I don't know how I got along without it.
This brush is perfect for giving that smokey eye look. I use it in the outer corners of my eyes, and the bottom lid to create the look. It can sometime come out to be a little too harsh, but hopefully I'll be able to master the handling of it.
Not the cheapest of brushed (mine was $22) but just what I needed. This is, like others have said, a white tipped brush, with fairly precise and countored bristles. Very soft and flexible to bend and apply, but solid. I agree with the 1st writer here, I have the #224 wiper brush for the outer crease, and had a LONG talk at the MAC counter re these 2 brushes recently. I have a tiny crease, small eyes, and the #224 deposits almost TOO much color at times, and though it can look nice for an outside lid BLEND, to get a precise crease line I never could. The #219 is smaller and easier to use right in the crease where I need - to show a nice line of color JUST where I need it. For the price, I think it helps to talk to the MAC counters and find out which are the best brushes for YOUR eyes.
This brush is heavenly. I like the way the brush handle is round (and not flat like a paint brush)where the handle meets the bristles. It makes it feel like you have the fluidity of a pencil. I have small creases and this brush gets right in there without depositing colour above or below the crease. I love this brush. Update (20 04 03): I use this brush everyday. Still love it.
