Today’s review is going to be on the MAC 217 Blending Brush. Some products are over hyped on the internet these days when in real life it is just a dud and waste of money. And I tend to do a lot of research before I plunge into buying something I might regret later. I was quite skeptical when I got this brush so how did the MAC 217 Blending Brush fare out?

How Did MAC 217 Blending Brush Work For Me?

The MAC 217 Blending Brush comes in a matte black handle and silver ferrule. The brush looks very sturdy and durable. The bristles are natural in the 217 Brush and they are in a perfect dome shape which is great for applying colors in the crease or outer V. Although this is a blending brush, the bristles are more stiff and picks up more pigments. The tip is tapered which allows for more precision. The bristles don’t shed or fray after deep cleaning them.

I have fairly small eyes so a big brush for blending wouldn’t just work for me. The bristles in the MAC 217 Blending Brush is in a perfect dome shape which is great for applying colors in the crease or outer V. The natural bristles evenly distributes the pigments across the lid. I use this every day for applying color on the outer V and blending into the crease or to even sweep a light wash of color on the lid. The MAC 217 Brush is a must have to blend those harsh edges on the crease to nothingness. The best dupe for the MAC 217 Blending Brush is the Morphe Brushes 433 Pro Firm Blending Fluff ($5.99) which is a hair softer.
