MAC 219 Pencil Brush Review – Must Have Mac Brushes


MAC Pencil brush 219ร‚ย 

Life would have been incomplete without MAC 219 brush for sure. Those who have it and are fond of giving definition to eye shape or precise work will agree with me on this. Working in small areas, smudging or blending this brush does it all ๐Ÿ˜‰

About MAC 219 Pencil brush :-

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.

Price Of MAC 219 Pencil brush – INR 1650 (I hate you for the pricing ๐Ÿ˜› )


My experience with MAC 219 Brush

A brush with soft and dense bristles which doesn’t shed and neither do itsร‚ย bristles loosen up after repeated washing. The thing with the brush is that it picks lot of colour and it is little tiring to clean it.Most of the times I use it in defining my crease. I prefer brown or black or any thing darker – and as it gets stained easily, I need to clean it quite often and is quite difficult. But I don’t mind the effort.

I use this brush for applyingร‚ย eye shadowร‚ย on lowerร‚ย lash lineร‚ย or applying highlighter in the inner corner of my eyes. A pointed tip of the brush makes it the most amazing andร‚ย multipurposeร‚ย brush.

ร‚ย This bristles of the brush are natural and made from goat hair. I hope it doesn’t freak you out ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. I have always wanted a good pencil brush, but the price is a bit tad high for me. Thought Vega professional one might help, but, though I like it, the tip is not precise so application on the lower lashline is a pain. Until I get this, I would keep watching the image lovingly ๐Ÿ˜›
    Ok, not being a moron and on a serious note, I am planning to get a foundation and this pencil brush.
    Ana, which foundation would you reco?

    Another thing, I know not very relevant, can Inglot round pans be stored in MAC palettes?
