After holding off this purchase for the longest time, and spending my entire beauty budget on makeup, I decided to get this. I'm gonna say just one thing: I can do my entire face with just this one brush (okay, maybe not blush and setting powder but literally everything else).
Soft, blends effortlessly and doesn't wipe off what you've put on
Packaging could be a lot better though. It comes in a flimsy plastic wrap like thing open at one end.The kind of plastic they have for vegetables at the grocery store. i mean seriously MAC? I get the whole recycling thing, but after paying 25 dollars plus tax, I'd like to walk around the mall care free without having to tactfully balance my bag so that the bristles don't go out of shape.

This one is hard to review, I think SO much of this brush but I am so annoyed by the price... it blends so well, it's perfect but it's so expensive!

If you haven't purchased this brush already, What are you waiting for? This brush is simply outstanding when it comes to blending out any eyeshadows. Whether you're using a cheaper drugstore eyeshadow or expensive high end eyeshadows, this brush will get the job done in less than no time. It makes getting that nice, professional look super easy. A few swipes back and forth in the crease and you're done. Love this brush. I've had this brush for many years and the quality, just like all Mac brushes, are great. I'm actually planning on purchasing another one. Run out and get this brush, it's really that great.

I must admit.. I am guilty of not investing in makeup brushes and tools. I guess it is just not as exciting as buying the new palette out there. But that brush just makes every eye look smoother and more well-blended. For the lazier ones (like me) it makes the application so easy! Two swipes of the 217 and the shadows are blended and smoked out like a pro. Just try to really use it to blend not for the application. Never thought I would be that excited about a brush!

Do you really need a blending brush? YES and you need THIS particular one. Forget ANY other, this is honestly THE BEST blending brush EVER!
I have small Asian eyelids (hooded eyelids), no crease. I can do a gorgeous smokey eye look (dark blues, vivid copper, and even plum!) all thanks to this blending brush. It creates miracles.

This brush is very versatile. This brush is great for blending out colors in the crease, for applying color to the crease, and for applying a light wash of color to the lid. I couldn't do my eye makeup without this brush!
However, this brush in comparison to the similar Sigma E25 is very scratchy. I've only washed the brush three times now, but I'm hoping that with continued washing the brush will become softer.

This is an amazing brush for blending shadow out. It picks up product well, blends well, and deposits product well. I only use two eyeshadow brushes, this and the 217. Mine is several years hold but staying together well. When I first started getting into makeup I was having issues blending, even with my Eco tools brushes, but this brush kind of does it for me. You can use it in windshield wipe motions through the crease or in sweeps from the eyelash line to brow bone for one color looks.

This is the absolute best brush for blending eyeshadow. I got my first one about ten years ago, and I recently got another. They both look a tiny bit different from one another, but they both work good. It has so many uses, I use them for eyeshadow, cream eye shadow, apply cream highlighter, and to dab on lipstick. I get a few hairs that shed from time to time. It is white so it will stain over time, but if you clean it regularly it won't be that bad. It has natural goat hair, so I clean it with baby shampoo, and rinse it with conditioner.

Having used cheaper, dupe versions of this, I finally caved in and bought one a few months ago. Since then, I've bought two more.
This brush is amazing and blends like a dream and I wouldn't do my make up without it now.
I like to use one for a wash over the lid, another for adding a darker colour to the crease and outer corner and then I use a clean brush to blend and the result is stunning eye make up.
It spot cleans and deep cleans really well, without shedding or losing shape. I'll be buying more of these without a doubt!

I really dont buy brushes too often because the quality ones are pricier, so i decided to save up for just one or two really good brushes that i would really get moneys worth for. I am always on a rush to get out the door so i try to get a smokey in quickly and i just pack on some shadow with a 239 and then blend it out with 217 and it makes it look like it took so much longer! It can do so many other things than what i use for and i have been really wanting to do some cool looks with it, but for now it is a must have!!! totally worth the money and is a million times better than any brush i tried to buy to avoid spending the money on it but nothing can match up to it!!
