I have been considering this brush for over a year now; I got it last month as a treat to myself and I wish I had bought it sooner. It's very precise due to the thin but stiff bristle alignment, which is much better than other (drugstore) liner brushes I've tried. When I use this to line my eyes with Carbon e/s, the line is indistinguishable from my real lash line, and my eyes look almost naturally smoked. It's a very nice effect. It's a pricey brush, but it has altered the way I do some of my makeup, which automatically propels it to 5 lippies.
Love this brush. It's so easy to use and handle. I use it to line upper and lower lash line and it makes the perfect line, everytime.
Fabulous angle brush - just perfect for lining the lids. Have just bought for use with pigments - and am considering buying another for use with gel eyeliners.
I got this brush in a holiday set although i defenitely think you need an angled brush , i dont think the MAC one is anything special you could get one just as good less money.
This brush is a must have! I use this brush for perfect application of e/s under my eyes to create a smoky eyed look and also I use it to line the upper lash line. You can use this with SB cream eyeliner or BB gel liner, I have for both and it works perfectly. I also use it with dry e/s all the time as well. It provides perfect application every time. Oh and it works well as a brow brush but I have been using the 208 now for that.
I can't believe I didn't get this brush! I love it. It works great for lining your eyes with shadow and this brush makes it easy and gives you more precision compared to other brushes. It's a little pricey but totally worth it for this one. I don't regret buying this.
I use this brush to fill in eyebrows, smudge eye pencil and to apply eye shadow as a liner - wet or dry. Love it! Not cheap, but brushes are investment and I don't regret getting this one.
The MA at the MAC counter at Nordstrom used this brush to line my upper lids with the Carbon eye shadow and I loved the look it gave me, so I decided to buy it. I've been using this for about a week now and I like the look I get even better using this brush myself. I've never been able to get such a thin, sharp, precise line, especially at the corners of my eyes using drugstore liquid liners with the brushes that come with them. I doubt I would ever have to buy this again unless I lost it (I soo hope I don't), but I would most definitely repurchase this.
WOW! I haven't been reviewing much lately, but I have been spending a lot of my cosmetic $$ on brushes...and this is another winner! I use it wet or dry with shadow to line my lids. This is stiff enough to apply a perfect line, but the bristles are soft and flexible so it's also easy to work with. This brush picks up and deposits color wonderfully. As usual with eye makeup brushes, I could use a shorter handle, but I'll live. MAC brushes are so well-made that I doubt I'll be repurchasing anytime soon, but if I ever lose it I'll have to run out and get another asap! It's insanely cheap considering it makes application so simple and I get more mileage out of the products I already own.
This is a very good brush. I agree with everyone - a must need for every brush collection. I have a scar where my eyebrow is, creating a thin hairless patch. This brush helps me easily fill the scar in with powder every morning.
I just want to make one extra note. The LONG handle one is the one to get. NOT the one that comes with the holiday brush sets. I have both and the shorter handle one is poorer in quality - the hairs are thicker = rougher - okay for filling in eyebrows but hurts when used for applying eyeliner.
