This is my favourite mac brush EVER! It's so unassuming when you see it yet so versatile and useful. You can use it for lips, for liner for shading the inner and outer corners of the eyes and even...

This brush looks like a really cool brush when you first see it, but having had it for a while now I'm finally ready to admit that it's a huge let down. The only reason I'm giving this a 3 instead...
