MAC 217 is the most raved & loved brush from MAC’s collection! Like an age old tradition, it’s a must have to own this brush if you are a makeup junkie. As the name says, it expertise in blending but then takes up alternate tasks of product application (cream, powder& pigment), highlighting & concealing equally well. The power lies in the perfect shaped & sized bristles. It has extremely soft fibres made of goat hair as MAC 239 with precise rounded domed edges which fits into the crease like a pro making the blending task a cakewalk! The bristles are dense yet airy enough for feathery moves during blending without knocking down the colours. It does a good job with application but does not pack colour as precise as 239 rather gives a nice flawless wash on the lids. It’s a super reliable shortcut tool for simple no fuss everyday looks however the fluffiness restricts the use for convoluted & sophisticated in-depth eye looks!
This tool plays easily with concealers & cream products too! The perfect size gets into the under eye with ease giving a flawless blend to your concealer for a bright & polished looking under eye area. It can be used to conceal other areas like mouth corners or nose grooves where the bigger brushes face difficulty to reach. It applies my cream shadows & paint pots perfectly without any effort. And highlighting your brow bone or cheekbones or Nose Bridge too is not a much difficult task for this super hero.
I have had this brush more than a year now & haven’t seen it shedding! Again the only grudge is the pure white bristle with overtime gets stained losing the shine. Finally it’s a must must & must have brush!
