I'll keep this simple :)
1) A nicely pointed tip on a round brush provides create precision when you want to blend... but blend precisely. Like for a smokey eye or applying colour to the crease. I personally love to use this as a brush to blend out eyeliner or black e/s (as a liner) to create a softer look. Pointed tip also let's you apply lighter colours accurately on your inner corner.
2) MAC brushes are not cheap, they are pricey but I think when a consumer walks in knowing how much money they spend, they not only buy the quality but also the brand. I don't mind paying more for a brand I like to support, plus it is definitely a good quality brush. Hasn't shed a single bristle on me - ever. It's not just got quality bristles it's also got a quality handle. I love the matte handles of MAC brushes, great to the touch.
3) The hairs are fairly soft, but rigid enough to hold its pointed tip. Works fine on the eyes and is gentle so it won't cause irritation.

I love this brush! It's an absolute must have as I use it in every single look. I don't remember how I used to do my eye makeup without it! I use it for applying shadow on the lower lash line, as well as inner corner highlight and sometimes for the crease. I do not have to repurchase because it will last for a very long time!

yes! yes! yes! top 3 brushes, hands down. If I had to get by with only 3 brushes for my eyes it would be the flat shader brush, the fluffy white brush and this one. amazing for under eye, for tear-duct and for precise application. Good job MAC

I guess this is good for precise application, but to apply shadow thickly I turn this on its side and apply shadow so the rough tip won't hurt my eye.

This brush has revolutionized and forever changed how I apply shadow. It's the only brush I like to use to get the perfect V and fine crease work accomplished during my e/s application! I have tried a few alternative brushes that look similar in shape and/or size, but none compare to the results and craftmanship to the MAC 219. In addition it's the perfect brush for me to apply and blend eye shadow or liner on the lower lash line.

Wow, this brush has soooo many uses! It is a supa brush. I got this in the MAC Magic, Mirth & Mischief Collection: Do-The-Trick Buff and Line Brush Set! You can use the brush for precision shading on lid, in eye crease or along lash line, in the corner of the eye (due to the presicion tip). It is ideal for blending eyeliner into eye shadow to create a smoky look! I love this brush soo much! Everyone should own it! I want to buy the full size brush eventually!

This is a great brush! I use it for a plethera of purposes! It is brilliant at applying color in outer v and crease, but also for getting under the lower lashes and smudging liner or other darker colors! I love this brush and there is not a day that I dont use this puppy! It is my MVP!

For the longest time, I wondered why the heck I couldn't get a nice even and accurate 'crease' or 'outer v' shape with my eyeshadow. It used to annoy me to no end. Thank goodness I gave this brush a try, it's truly amazing for defining the crease perfectly. Before I used this I also had trouble getting a consistent amount of shadow and so one eye was always darker than the other and it never looked well blended. I'm pretty critical when it comes to the way I make myself up, but the first time I tried this (with MAC Coquette) I was thrilled. It may seem pricey when you compare to drugstore brands etc. but a good brush should last decades and it's worth the splurge.

This is one of my most used brushes. I use it mainly for the inner corner, outer V and to smudge my eyeliner and eyeshadow under my eye.

A real workhorse in my brush collection. It works to deposit outer lid color on my small-ish eyes. It also does a great job applying highlight color in the inner corners. But most of all, the 219 smudges eyeliner really well when you want to do a smoky eye. The brush is a little too stiff to work in the crease for me, though. Even with repeated washing, there's no shedding. The brush retains its shape fairly well. Looking forward to getting a second one in the future.
