According to MAC, the brush is meant for "a sheer, more controlled application of MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow". The bristles are long and soft and its dome shape reminds me of MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush. Compared to 224 though, this feels more dense and similar to the limited edition 226...

. The great thing about these is they don't shed or smell because they are synthetic, they also don't absorb product like a natural hair brush would, although I do have a hard time washing product out because they are so densely packed (and drying them sucks too). Today's review is the F86...

Sonia Kashuk brush (L) and MAC 224 brush (R) Sonia Kashuk's makeup brushes are without a doubt, great quality and affordable. I recently came across her Small Multi-Purpose Brush while browsing around in Target. The first thing that came to my mind was that it looked like the MAC 224 brush but...

MAC store yesterday and hauled a bunch of stuff, mostly eyeshadow refill pans from the permanent collection (Blanc Type, Soft Brown, Corduroy, Forgery - swatches and reviews coming up!), but I also got several items from the MAC Me Over collection that I didn't have yet. Well, I did get a MAC...

I look forward to the day MAC does us a solid by finally adding the beyond awesome MAC 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush ($24.50) to their permanent eye brush lineup, but until then I guess these periodic appearances will just have to do. To say the 226, which makes one of its periodic...

Always keep a brush guard on hand after washing the MC 217 to make sure that it doesn't get out of shape. The white hair shows product build-up easily, but it's no trouble to clean with just dishwashing liquid or a brush cleaning fluid. Overall, the MAC 217 Blending Brush is an excellent...
