💖 MAC #227 ($32) made of unspecified natural bristles is more plushy than Shu Umera #12 and comfortably soft enough despite the coarser bristles. When I'm travelling i prefer brushes that has dense enough softness compared to firm and occassionally prickly bristles to control that quick swipe of touch-ups because I wont have to time brush as often as i need to if i was to bring out uber soft brushes made of squirrel hair eg the Chikuhodo Z-5. Real lushy-springy softness overall unlike the firm Shu Uemura #12 Alternative dupe for this MAC #227 looks to be:(1) Hakuhodo J532 (natural white Goat bristles @ $28) [i haven't purchased one yet because based on all the reviews and pics I've researched, no other brush seem to have the same luscious density even at the tip as this large paddle MAC #227 😍](2) Chikuhodo Z-5 (grey squirrel) has thinner density at the tip ($36) (3) B-ES-04 Eye Shadow Brush BISYODO Series (Saikoho goat hair at $36)(4) Sigma E50 (signaTech fibres @ $17)Ps, do NOT moisturise/condition this brush with Baby Johnson's baby oil to soften the bristles...guusshhh it took 5 shampoos over 2 weeks and then i had to dap the bristles with loose powder so that the powder could grab all the oil out then shampoo X2 more. Now i only shampoo then condition it overnight then rinse throughly the next morning.

If you don't take care of this brush, the bristles will fall out (tiny bits) that end up plastering bristles to your skin. I had to replace my first brush because I was so clueless on taking care of brushes and proper ways to clean them. Having said that...This brush is excellent. It's fluffy and doesn't irritate the skin, picks up powder (finishing powder especially) well and spreads it evenly. It gives an airbrushed look to your skin and I absolutely love this brush, I didn't really care about makeup brushes until I was given a Mac set of brushes for Christmas 3 years ago, and this is one of the 9 brushes I actually use!I multitask with this brush (because I didn't know which number was the blusher brush and there were things such as angled contour, contouring brush etc etc... also I'm lazy) and found that pinching the brush can change its function to help contour or apply blush.

It's a good brush no doubt. That being said I suggest the ELF brushes. They work just as well as high end at a quarter the price.

Great handy little brush! I have had mine for 2-3 years now without much shedding or the brush loosing its softness. I didn't pick this up for my eyes, it seems way too large for that; but I did pick it up to define and contour out my nose and eyelids. It is also great for fixing eye shadow mistakes on your outer eye area with its flat sides but fluffy bristles. I wouldn't call this brush a total need but if you like an extra defined look to your face by contouring your nose or eyelids this brush is perfect for that!

I have had this brush for over 4 years so I can really speak about how I feel about it. I have a bunch of MAC brushes (both face and eye) and think this is probably my favorite. It is obviously a huge brush, so I could see how it could intimidate someone with smaller eyes. In the past I have used it to highlight my cheekbones, clean up my brows after filling them in, as a highlight to my under brow bone, contouring the sides of my nose, highlighting the bridge of my nose. MAC currently sells this brush for $32 USD, I think mine was a little less when I purchased it. Either way, it was and is a pricy brush, but it is a very versatile brush and it has held up perfectly after multiple washes and has not shed on me. I recommend and would repurchase. I really feel with MAC brushes if you take care of them and wash them they can last a lifetime. I have some that I have had for 6 years and they look brand new. This brush is HG, if you are thinking about buying this brush, you will not regret it.

I had put this brush aside because I found it too scratchy on my eyelids after I had washed it. Before the first wash it was great to use to apply base colour all over lid. So into my drawer it went. Then I watched a youtuber who used it to contour her nose. OMG it's perfect!!!! I now love it for contouring my nose. I guess my eyelids are just more delicate but I don't find it scratchy on my nose. It applies and blends out NYX taupe perfectly. Previous attempts with smaller countour brushes just left very obvious streaks down the sides of my nose no matter how much I tried to blend it out. This brush just blends it out beautifully. And I can do it fairly quickly, whereas with smaller brushes I had to spend several minutes blending it out. Highly recommend this for contouring the nose.

Just bought this and it feels scratchy on my hand and it was shedding before I took it out of the flimsy plastic sheet. So disappointed. If it's scratchy on my hand I don't even want to try it on my face. Like the handle and shape, but hopefully I can find a dupe in another line that's soft. I'm returning it. Fail mac. Fail.

If you're the type who likes to pack on concealer..You should be using this brush for that. If you do so choose...make sure to finesse your application as the eye area is delicate. Never used this brush for anything else bit concealer...pro long wear to be specific (mixd with an eye brightened) does wonders and can highlight at the same time. I use this guy for my "going out" makeup...
