So worth the investmentI have owned a couple of these for at least 5 years and they are honestly the best brush. I feel like I could do my whole eye makeup with this brush and it look so beautiful and blended. Just be careful not to use super bright or neon shadows with them as the natural bristles can be stained with shades such as red, blue and green
AmazingAll the brushes from this brand are amazing quality. Blends nicely and lasts long.
Amazing crease brushThis is on permanent rotation in my brush collection I like to use it to place and blend eyeshadow in my crease. It works so effortlessly, I never feel like I haven’t blended properly with this brush. Quality is great, Brush has held up well with regular washing.
InvestmentGive it a good clean and it’s a great investment to use for blending your eyeshadow
Perfect for dusting shadow on the outer and inner corners of the eyesPerfect for dusting shadow on the outer and inner corners of the eyes. The bristles are really packed in, so it's easy to maintain a precision look using this brush.
An essential brush for your collection.It's definitely worth the hype and it's cult status. An excellent, reliable and versatile brush - I love it for blending eyeshadow into my crease as well as smudging along the bottom lash line. It holds pigment really well so the colour applies where you want it with little fallout. My only slight complaint is that I wish it were softer (it is still pretty soft) but I think the stiffness of the br...Read More
perf for blendingperfect brush for blending out shadows and creating definition. rarely sheds and the brush itself can be used for years
must haveI own this for years and have tried zoeva's and sigma's versions of the mac 217 and I can tell you that they are not comparable to the mac's 217. I seriously would recommend everyone to get this.
Expansive but goodverified purchaserIt's quite pricy but it's a very good brush for eye area. It's soft and gentle, it transfers colour quite nicely and I feel luxurious every time I use it.
Best blending brush EVERLOVE this brush! Been using it for 5 years and haven't had any issues with it! Blends like a dream, perfect for using in the crease.
Great to blend withI have always loved MAC makeup brushes. They are such great quality and are definitely worth the money. This brush is great for blending out eye shadows. This brush is a necessity.
Invest in this brushWorth the money hands down! I use this for everything. I have added multiple to my brush collection over the years. Does not shed and blends shadows beautifully!
Love!!I absolutely adore this eyeshadow brush. It’s great for blending colors into your crease and doesn’t shed at all. Definitely worth the money.
The best blending brush!The M.A.C 217S Eye Blending Brush has acquired a cult status in the beauty world as being a go-to brush for blending out crease colours, smokey eyes, etc. And its reign is well deserved! I have been using my 217 for about 5-6 years now and it’s still on the go. Yes, it has some fraying and is slightly stained as it has white bristles, but it still does its job which is an impressive feat as it's m...Read More
Blends perfectlyI love this brush! It blends so effortlessly.
I used to have a blending brush that was quite stiff and scratchy so my eye area always got quite red after using this.
This is soft but firm enough to blend eyeshadow and not just run over it.
It doesn't shed, is great quality and lasts for years.
It washes and dries well and looks as good as new each time.
I would highly...Read More
Most versatile brushi LOVE this brush, I have three, and use them so often. Really versatile, long lasting, good quality and reasonably priced.
had it for yearsi couldnt live without this brush!! i use it every day
Eyes on the prizeAn essential to perfecting the shadow game! Great control of the brush and super easy to clean
Not the BestI was disappointed in this compared to my old #217. I know they made the move to synthetic hair but the quality could be better as its at the same price point as the old brushes.
AlrightSome MAC brushed are a hit and some a miss. This is in the middle, its not lasted amazingly, but it really is super lovely and soft.
Versatile eye brushI've owned my MAC 217 for many, many years. I use a solid brush soap, which leaves it soft and looking brand new even after all this time. You can do an entire eye look with just this one brush, whether you want to pack on colour or blend out. Great shape and a great size. There's a reason this brush is so popular - it's just fantastic. Highly recommend it.
Doesnt live up to the hypeMaybe its just me or I didnt clean and care for this brush properly, but I really didnt find that it lasted the time that MAC claims.
I have found the same thing with many of my MAC brushes and when taking them back the girls usually say its usual wear or improper cleaning and that there is no issue. But I have had this brush for probably 1 year and cleaned it with MAC brush cleaner regular...Read More
Must have!An essential to perfect shadow game!
10/10Favourite Mac brush or any brush for that matter. It feathers out and blends shadow beautifully, works wonders in the crease and I have also used it as a concealer brush for lightly blending under the eyes and blemishes. Versatile and a must have
Blends like heavenThis brush is quite expensive, but I do think that its quite sturdy, and holds up really well (have had mine for over a year). It blends shadows and pigments really nicely even though the brush hairs are synthetic
Fav MAC brushThis is definitely my favourite and most used brush from MAC, a must for eyeshadow application. Very useful brush. For a natural day time look, this is the only brush I need. I use this to sweep a base shadow all over my lid, then I use this to blend a deeper brown shade on the outer corner of my eyes for a bit more definition. Definitely a must in everyone's makeup case.
Holy GrailMy favourite MAC brush! I have small eyes so this is the perfect size to shade and blend with through the crease.
GreatJust the softest nicest go-to brush for blending out you'll ever get (at this price point). There's a reason makeup artists always rave about this one. I use it first as a transition and add a little extra colour for the crease and it's great for mixing shades. I have about 3 that I rotate because I always need one between brush cleans.
Best crease brushPopular for a reason! It's so good - blends your crease really smoothly and it makes my eyeshadow look great. Definitely recommend
Worth itSo definable expensive but totes worth it. Works great.
The Perfect Eye BrushThis brush is a classic, and for good reason. It blends creases with ease and saves me so much time!
Perfect sizeGreat size for getting into the crease. Blends effortlessly and love the tapered end
My fave eye brushThis is the one brush I have continually used for over 10 years.. I have probably bought at least 7 over the years... It is the best brush ever! You can achieve any eye look with it. I use 3 of this brush when doing an eyeshadow look. Blends out eye shadow seamlessly!
My favourite eye brush, hands down!So for me there isn't really something I can compare this to, because this IS the eyeshadow brush that I compare things to. I own literally three of these, two of them 217 from before they became synthetic, and one the new 217S being the new synthetic bristle brush.
The size, shape and density remain the same, but on the skin, the new synthetic bristles are softer. I don't find there ...Read More
