This brush is perfect for applying a crease color and blending it out because it is thinner one way than another. It fits perfectly into my crease, and I love the look it gives my eyeshadow! It was my first ever Mac brush and I love it!
Perfect blending brush...
MAC brushes are second to none. I've been using their brushes for years, but purchased this one a few months ago. I have a Chanel blending brush, but since purchasing 217 I grab for it far more often than my Chanel. I love that the bristles on this are a little shorter than other blending brushes...it makes for easier control and also allows you to use it for more than just blending! If you walk away with just 2 MAC brushes, 217 needs to be one of them (239 being the other)...
This is THE ONE.
Okay, if f.e. God would come up to me and tell me I just can have one Brush for the rest of my life, THIS would be the one! You´ll never find an other brush who can do so many different things besides blending beautifully. I have about 6 in my Kit and with Brush Guards they stay in shape for a couple of years. Only little downside, because the bristels are white, after a couple of uses you can clean them like you want, they will change a little off white and can look dirty, even if they are not. If there is only one person who never tried this brush, go NOW and buy one, you´ll not regrette it, Highly recommended!
I like this brush quite a lot, and I've had it for several years. I have deep-set eyes, so I usually want to blend my shadows out a little more above the crease. This brush works perfectly for that. My only real criticism is that the goat hair feels cheap, and even after all this time it is slightly coarse.
A MUST HAVE
Everyone should have this brush! I have been using this eyeshadow brush for a few years now, and I have no idea how i ever did my eyeshadow without it. I am sure their are Dupes out there for this, but I do think the 217 is a must have brush. It blends so effortlessly, and i could say so many great things about it, but just see for yourself, worth the money :)
Works like a charm
The brush is a bit expensive, but your getting what you pay for with this blending blush. Great for highlight and contouring, but I use my blush for my smoky eye look
A Makeup Essential
Everyone should own one of these (or at least something similar from Sigma or Crown Brush). If you don't know why, then you should study up on makeup a little more! I use this to apply my crease color, then a clean one for blending. All around great brush, and I don't know what I'd do without it!
