This is a great underrated brush! It is perfect for my smaller eyes. I also own the 217 and 224. It has white goat hair like the 217 but is longer and thus less stiff than the 217. I've been...

This brush is what I wanted the 224 an the 217 to be. Both the 217 and the 224 overly blend my shadows- because the brushes are to big. However, the 222 is perfect for getting into my crease and...

hmm... sorry to disagree, guys! This brush didn't work for me. It's simply too big to blend on my lids and crease. Besides, it has lost its shape big time. Mine is still nice and soft, but it looks...

I like this brush but I wouldn't call it a staple. Yes, it's soft and precise, blends eyeshadows well and never shed a hair or stained. Why not a staple, right? Well, I can have the same results...

My HG of MAC eye makeup brushes. It is truly blending magic! It makes blending and applying to the crease a breeze! Doesn't shed and keeps it's shape. I would totally repurchase this brush if it...

I own pretty much all the tapered/crease eye brushes MAC has to offer, and of those, the 222 is indispensable. Like a lot of people, I find the 224 too big and fluffy to define my crease. It...

This is a really great brush. I use it for my crease shades and it works very well. Somehow, even though the brush is wider at the end, it is still able to get into my crease and distribute...

Love this brush, I went to my mac counter and wanted a good blending brush for blending out the edge of my crease to brow bone and the MUA instantly pulled this one out. I'm so glad I got it - it...
