The MAC 217 is a staple eye brush for me and I personally can see why it's a hyped brush. I tried many good blending brushes, but the 217 has something slightly better among all. It pick-ups color very easy, even with MAC eyeshadows with a harder formula. It's a versatile brush, by working with different pressure levels I can get different levels of pigmentation. I mostly use it in the crease, but I also used it to apply color on the lid (although I get some fallout with very powdery formulas); but if I was brush limited, I can do an entire look with just this brush.
The quality of this brush is amazing. I have one 3 years old one that I think I wash 1-2 times a week, looks and performs just as new.
Ive been a Mac customer for a long time and the 217 has been my favorite blending brush. Recently I purchased a 217 and the ferrule was lose. This is unacceptable for someone who purchases a almost 30 dollar brush. I was confused because I own many 217 brushes and they have lasted for years and they are still working good. This brush I just got I used the brush and it lasted less than one second. I also didn't wash it so there was no reason of the glue getting lose. Im disappointed of a band I will no longer support it.
I found this newer version to be more pokey and scratchy than my original 217s. I like the size and shape but they are not as soft and I feel little pricks when blending that I did not feel before. I can appreciate going synthetic but these just aren't as comfortable on the skin, so I won't repurchase in the future.
MAC brushes are all well made. I've tried other brands of brushes with disappointing results like bristles separating, heads of brushes breaking off, etc. i was so pleased with all my MAC brushes that after I bought one set for home use, I bought another set to keep in my make-up bag, for work and travel.
I'm so glad I got two original 215 brushes these synthetic ones just aren't the same !! MAC PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL ONES
When i say i love love love this brush !!! This my #1favorite packing and blending brush! The best brush ever !! Kind pricey but i love it and plan to buy a few more!!
I am so happy that MAC has finally made synthetic brushes! There was no reason for an animal to suffer for a makeup brush especially when synthetic brushes work so well.
MAC, please ignore the negative comments about these brushes, I am now buying these brushes for the first time only because they aren't made from real animal hair and many others are also. Thank You MAC for making your brushes better and less cruel in the process!
