Does what it promises. Blending colors is absolutely a breeze with this one. Is also pretty good with concealer application under the eyes. Only gripe I have is that the brush starts looking a bit dirty after a while even after deep cleaning etc. Due to the white bristles. But I wouldnt swap my 217 for any other blending brush!
I just love love love this little brush so much! The very first mac brush i purchased. Its a definite must have for every girls kit. Very high quality. No wonder almost all pro make-up artists are so inlove with this brush. Two thumbs up!
I really like it, does the job, blends perfectly, perfect size, not too big, not too small. You definitely need brush guards for it, they will help it stay you favorite blending brush
The must have for blending and crease application.
I didn't understand the beauty of makeup brushes until my senior year of high school after watching YouTube videos. Forgo finger application, get with the MAC pro brushes
the best brush i own. it is so versatile. i have mac's eyeshadow brush but i use this mostly to apply eyeshadow. its like a magic wand when it comes to blending eyeshadow and perfect for crease application. i use this everyday. my favorite brush!
I think Im late with this review, so, THIS brush is the most amazing blending brush in the world.. I was using a lot the Sigma one but THIS is absolutely THE BEST.
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.
