The Most Raved Eyeshadow Blending Brush - MAC 217 Review

Owning high end eye shadows does not ensure that you end up creating beautiful eye makeup. It is the blending brush which is the Magic Wand that helps in delivering the beautiful final result. When we can invest in good and expensive eye shadows that can finish up/expire in sometime, why can't we invest in a good eye shadow blending brush that has a longer life span?

The most raved about blending brushes in the market are the MAC brushes and the Sigma brushes which are almost the same when it comes to quality. Of course there are other decently good cheaper substitutes but why not indulge yourselves?

The recent MAC product reviews that I have writing are long pending ones and these products were gifted to me last year for Valentine's Day. Read my haul here.

My take on MAC 217 Blending Brush : 

I must admit that the MAC 217 brush is my most cherished possession in my brush collection.The black wooden handle with the white soft bristles makes it look so classy.The bristles are feathery soft and will never cause any sort of trouble to your tender eye area. The handle is quite sturdy and will not break while at the same time it is quite lightweight and does not bother us during usage. The brush can work as a multipurpose brush because it can do both blending as well as eye shadow application on the crease and outer V area. I also use it for contouring my nose and it works great for that as well.

The bristles are quite dense and it picks up sufficient product in one swipe and it transfers almost everything onto the eyelid. The bristles are packed in an oval shape in order to serve as a good blending brush. Thoughtful !!! The brush can be washed and the stain of the eye shadows are removed easily from the bristles.The bristles do not fall during or after being washed. It dries quickly after a wash and the bristles remain soft even after washing.
