It first made its appearance as part of a SE brush set from Ice Parade Collection for Holiday 2011. 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...

I have everything I need in this set for my face makeup application, possibly with the exception of a slanted brush to contour with. I will be using the 130SE for my liquid or cream foundations. The 282SE Duo fibre shader can be used to apply concealer or eyeshadow on the lid. The 286SE Duo...

) earlier this week, I've had other work-friendly MAC lip colors on my mind. Colors like the upwardly mobile subject of today's Unsung Heroes post, MAC Cremesheen Glass in Deelight ($18.50). I've kept this creamy, mid-tone neutral pink close for a few months. We met through the MAC Girl Next...

MAC 226 small tapered blending brush 2011 I went to the 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...

That's today's Unsung Hero, MAC Care Blends Essential Oils in Grapefruit + Chamomile. Pretty good on its own as a soothing super moisturizer, this $19.50 potion is even more potent when mixed, like with concealers, for the ultimate in dark-circle destruction. Combined with MAC Pro Longwear...

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...

I've had mine since 2007, and even though I use it a few times a week (I like to apply mine with a fan brush), I've barely made a dent in the pan. Lighter lasses, do not fear Dollymix's bold statement. I think it looks gorgeous on pale princesses, too. I've also seen it grace both NW and NC...

A brush that I really enjoy from Sigma that doesn't get much hype is the E45, the Small Tapered Blending Brush. It's great for putting colour in the crease and blending it. This brush is very similar to the MAC 226 brush, which was a limited edition brush from the Blond Brunette Redhead...

Someone at MAC even named one of the company's Lip Pencils after the band (well...), and it happens to be today's Unsung Hero, In Synch ($13). Fate is such a fickle mistress, isn't she? I almost never met this yellowish pastel pink because for a long time I'd always just assumed it would...

-size brushes are hand-made. These travel-sized brushes are good though if you are thinking of gifting these to a makeup newbie, or someone who needs a travel-size brush set. The bristles are really soft and feel nice on the skin. I have yet to see these shed. I especially like the MAC 286SE...
