This is a great multi-purpose brush! I love how the stiff bristles can be used to pack on a dense layer of color. I also love to use the brush to blend out paints or powerpoints when I use them as...

I love this brush! Firm natural hairs, fairly broad head. Great with shadows (strong washes of color and works even in the crease), paints or for applying concealer to larger areas. This may be one...

I really like this brush. It is great for applying eyeshadows or pigments but it is a great brush to cover alot of area with, so using this to apply a wash is great.

MAC #252 is the larger version of #242. Its a great stiff taklon brush but i prefer the narrower #242 for more precision. this one is just a little too big.
