I use 228 to apply inner corner eyeshadows and works perfectly for the purpose. I was using pencil brushes before but the curved shape is much better suited to fit the area. I'd recommend picking...

I love this brush for applying shadows to small areas of my eye - especially the inner lid and inner corner/tear duct area. This brush gives a precise, smooth and even layer of shadow and as that...

Not my favourite. I haven't found a better brush to apply shadow with so I use this to apply it on my lid. I use a tapered brush to blend and for crease colours. It does the job but for the price...

So, I have far too many MAC eye brushes for someone who only does eye makeup a few times a year :)! But, when I do it, I want it done right! I just bought and have used once the 228 and it's...

I am a make up artist and this brush is only for making perfect v shape oval. And you need to hold it in a proper way to draw perfect soft V. Many people try to blend with it. Dont - it is for...

I love this brush! I use it for my browbone highlight and inner corner. Mine even has a wayward bristle that's too long and away from the rest but I don't even care. There are probably other...

I find this pretty useless for me and my routine, so I returned it. I was hoping it was thin enough to apply shadow as a liner, but it's a bit bulky at the tip for that. I can see if you want to...

For a tiny brush the 228 packs a lot of punch. I use this brush with every eye look in some way or another. I love it for applying my inner corner highlight, applying shadow under my lower lash...

I've been searching forever for the perfect lower lashline brush, that will allow me to apply eyeshadow in a very thin line and also blend the eyeshadow seamlessly. No brush I have tried has ever...

This is one useful brush for my small eyes. I use this brush to create outer v or cut crease, which other brushes can't do. I love the texture. Downside is the $$$$$$$.

I never found a good use of this brush. It's too small to apply colors on the lid, it's not flat enough to blend the liners, and the bristle is so hard that actually stings my eye when I use...

Great multiuse Mac brush, delicate and small enough to smudge eyeliner, precisely apply eyeshadow on the Botton lash line and top lash line. Wide enough to use as a blender and to apply colour in...

It's really cute but did not grab any color. I had bought it for my eyeshadows, for detail work. Perhaps it's really meant to work for emollient products only.
