#217 Blending  brush:

1. Generally good for blending eye shadows  on the eyelid area

2. Able to deposit a soft wash of color on the eye for a day make up look


1. A bit too fluffy to blend colors out specifically on the socket area.

2. May @ times spread colors out over too much a wide area especially if over blended

#226 Tapered blending brush:
Darn it. This is a LE brush from Blonde Brunette Redhead. I didn't realize it how good it is, until recently I used it for the first time (YES! I kept this brush for almost 2yrs..and only recently started using it!!!) and it's hella good brush. It's pointed like the #219 brush, just that it's much softer than the #219. Would definitely buy more if MAC ever repromote this again


1. The perfect brush for blending colors on the socket area

2. Good for applying color on the inner and outer V of the eye

#224 Tapered blending brush

1. Can be used for blending eyeshadows on the crease area

2. Can also be used for application of concealers

3. Can also be used for highlighting specific areas of the face such as the nose bridge and the under eye area without depositing too much product


1. Rarely use this, as I prefer to use either the #226, #217 or #275 for blending

#222 Tapered blending brush
Very similar in shape to the #224 tapered blendineg brush, just that it's slightly thinner and longer in shape and of course, white in color. If you have the  #224, you can probably skip this unless u are a collector of MAC brushes

#252 Shader brush

1. Good for applying eyeshadows over a large area

2. Good for applying cream products


1. Not a very versatile brush, Can live without this

#242 Shader brush

1. Good for applying pigments, Pigments adhere to this brush better than the #239

2. Deposits eye shadow colors more intense than the #239

3.  Good for applying cream products such as paint pots and concealers


1. NIL for me. This is one of my favourite eye brushes from MAC

#239 Shader brush

1. Good for application of eye shadows

2. Can also be used for blending out eye shadows slightly due to the firm but soft natural bristles. Delivers a softer look on the eyes than the #242 though


1. Not recommended to use with pigments as it's not firm enough to make the pigments adhere to the brush without falling over the face

#213 Fluff brush
hmmm...Not too impressed by this brush. I would say that this brush is more for applying a soft wash of color on the eyes, If u are expecting your eyeshadow to appear intense with this brush, you will be disappointed. I would say this is more for blending or applying soft colors on the eye. If you want more color payoff from your eye shadow, still better to use either the #239 or #242

I still have not reviewed #219, #214 and #275 brushes..I will do so @ at a later time...In the mean time it's good nite folks =)
