One of my favorite brushes for blending eyeshadows. Makes my make up routine so effortless and blends shadows perfectly. Doesn’t shed and also keeps it shape for a very long time. Mine is almost 2 years and I use it every day and it’s still in perfect condition

By far the best brush for eyeshadow, really blending the shadow out and getting into that crease I️t is like no other. I purchased this online at Macy’s during their half off Mac sale. This is my number one blending brush and i would recommend this to anyone looking for a good staple blending brush.

The best blending brush out there. All MAC brushes are great, but this is the best for blending out color in the crease. Makes blending so easy. I love it. I have had it for a while now so I’m going to go get another one to have on hand.

This brush is a true workhorse. I have hooded eyes, so I do buff my crease out and up quite a bit. The famous 217 blends like a dream and never feels stiff or stratchy. I have had mine for at least 3 or 5 years, and after multiple washings it still holds up, doesn't shed, and dries without the bristles being flayed. The handle and the ferrule are still in good condition as well with just the numbers worn off. I am glad that I purchased this, but if something happened to this one I'd pick up a dupe since MAC is no longer considered cruelty free.

This brush is my most used most loved brush of all time. It’s the perfect shape and softness. I’ve had it for years and it’s still the same as it was the day I got it. I can’t wait to add more to my collection and I highly recommend.

The best blending brush of all time. There's something about the shape of the bristles just gives you that perfect eyeshadow application. This is a cult classic for a reason. It's soft but still firm enough to give an even blended application. Perfect blending. My go to when my application needs that extra push.

My favorite brush to apply deeper colors in my outer crease. The bristles allow me to pack on shades heavier than with the 224 brush. This is a great little blending brush to have in one's arsenal. I've also used this to apply cream bases and shadows as well as concealers. Love!

This was my second ever mac brush. I went into the store looking for a small goat hair blending brush and this is what I came out with. I love it because it's so soft I've had mine for two years and the bristles have not sheeded or dried out. I used it everyday to blend colors into the crease it's small enough to concentrate color and fluffy enough to also blend it out at the same time. Out of all my eye brushes this one and the E25 from sigma are my go to amd recommendations to anyone.

MAC brushes are all high quality and hand made (unless you get the holiday edition brushes). I love this brush for blending. I do feel like that this brush has gained a lot of its popularity from you tubers. With that being said, they are not wrong this brush is worth the hype & price.

One of my absolute favorite blending brushes! picks up just enough product to give you a smooth application. Does a bang up job blending any harsh lines out. It's on the pricey side but it's worth the money and I highly recommend this blending brush

How is this brush compared to the Morphe brand? They seem to have a ton of Mac dupes for way cheaper than Mac prices??
