Two MAC Makeup Brushes I Can't Live Without

The other day I was filling in my eyebrows with my MAC 266 Angled Brush when it occurred to me I hadn't really featured it on my blog, which is really surprising because I use it every single day & I'd be absolutely lost without it. My eyebrows are definitely sisters, not twins & they stress me out beyond belief basically every day but since having the 266 it's reduced my eyebrow drama slightly! I find the angled shaped bristles are the perfect size for my brows, they're quite thin at the front & the brush creates the right size strokes. It's look a little battered now, as is my 217 but with the amount of use they both get it's to be expected really! I know it can sound a bit ridiculous spending £16.50 on a single brush, but I've certainly got my money's worth by using it so much. Also, duty free is your friend when buying high end beauty products, well it is for me anyway, even if it is only a few ££ cheaper it's better than nothing! 

The second MAC Makeup brush I can't be without is the MAC 217 Blending Brush, it was my first MAC brush & also my first "expensive" makeup brush I purchased. I'd read so many rave reviews about it & because I was useless at applying eyeshadow I justified it by saying it would be a tool that would be beneficial to my makeup routine! The super fluffy bristles make eyeshadow blend like a complete dream, it's so effortless & easy to achieve seamless eyeshadow that I have no regrets buying it. In fact I'm going to pick up another one next time I'm near a MAC store so I have a back up when the other needs washing! 

Honestly, I never used to believe the all the rave reviews about these makeup brushes but after giving into the hype I can confirm they are a million times better than I expected. They've helped me become a whole lot more confident applying makeup & I always go back to them if I switch to another brush. 

Have you got either of these MAC makeup brushes?

  3. The 217 brush looks exactly the same as the Zoeva 227 brush! I don't own either of these Mac brushes, I do own the 213 eyeshadow brush, I think no brush can ever beat that one! x
