For precision shading on lid, in eye crease or along lash line. The soft, smooth fibers of this brush are gathered into a pencil-shaped tip. It is ideal for blending eyeliner into eye shadow to create a smoky looking eye. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials.

MAC 219 Pencil brush is yet another most raved tool after their 217 Blending Brush & 239 Shader brush. Like the previous two ones I won , this one also is a great multitasking one. The brush has got pointed ,dense & fairly firm bristles which are not stiff though. The bristles picks up good amount of product for application . MAC 219 is so very famous for the smudging out the eyeshadows on top & lower lash line for a perfect sultry smoky look & I couldn’t agree more. It makes a perfect tool for smudging out those kohls, kajals, gel liners, cream shadows & eyeshadows for an intense sultry look in a jiffy. And the aptly firm bristles do help is defining the outer “v” & crease effortlessly.
The only grudge I always have with MAC brushes is the white bristles which gets stained very easily (though my MAC brush cleanser comes handy in such case). Or else I haven’t seen this brush shedding a single hair.
