M·A·C 224 Tapered Blending Brush
I watched as a MAC mua used this brush to apply studio tech to my daughters cheeks which has some acne buildup. It was awesome! It took a minute, but the results were very pretty. He took his time, who knew a brush this size could apply foundation. Love it!!!
It's All About the Tools
I had a make up artist (not a Nordstrom or MAC representative) recommend this brush to help me reproduce the polished look that she created for my eyes. While the brush was on order, I used a different brush and could not get the same look. As soon as this brush arrived, and I applied my eye make up with it - I was stunned at how the right tools make all the difference! The brush is soft, yet makes a clear application. I highly recommend this brush. And, make certain to take care of it. A good brush like this can last for decades if cared for correctly.
Good but not right for me
This brush blends VERY well but does feel a bit scratchy compared to my other brushes. Unfortunately, it was too large for my small eyes. I am returning it, having tracked a smaller, discontinued brush, the 226. (Which I love so far, by the way.)
I would recommend it for people with average sized eyes, provided they did not have extra sensitive skin.
Don't waste your money
I have a lot of MAC brushes and think they are fabulous. This is the one exception. The brush is so scratchy that it actually irritates my eyelid when blending shadows. No amount of washing with brush cleansers that normally soften bristles has helped. Definitely a purchase I regret.
