MAC 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush – MAC Me Over Review


MAC 226 brush Review

There is a long story behind this brush and I have to share it with you beauties about it.I had heard all the good things about this brush and one look at it – a makeup enthusiast will know that it’s going to work for him/her. When I was planning to buy it and was discussing it with Rash about it, I came to know that it has received a lot of negative reviews  because it’s not that pointed like the one introduced earlier by MAC and shape of the brush has been changed.

My heart sank and I wanted to cry out loud  🙁 and when I visited the store with a big heart I had a half-hearted look at it. To my surprise, it looked perfectly the way I have seen on many of the blogs. I asked the SA to get one for me as well but when he got the new pieces  the shape of the brush was different. I compared them carefully and asked him to give me the exact shape which I have seen on the counter of MAC me over.He showed me some 20 pieces but I was not satisfied and at last I took the tester brush only .Although I know its not a new piece and have been used couple of time but at least it has the desired shape which I wanted.

After washing and using this brush now, I just adore it much much more than my 217 .

 Doing crease work is so easy with this one especially for people like me who have deep crease infact even those who have small eyelids will find it great for blending. It has this pointed top and therefore chances of muddy blending are very less. I also like to use it on my outer “V” and length of the brush is just perfect to work on yourself or any one else.

Moreover it has black bristles so it won’t go as dirty as the white bristle brushes. Like most MAC brushes, bristles didn’t shed when I washed it although I have just washed it once sofar.

 It’s such a famous and must have brush that I seriously want MAC to bring it in its permanent collection.That’s the only issue I found in it. Ofcourse, it’s pricey but than if we like MAC then can’t complain about it 🙂

Recommendation – There are still so many pieces available in the Hyderabad MAC but I will suggest you to invest your time in the shape of the brush and choose the one which works best for you.

  3. Well, m nt much of an eye makeup person..but I really admire ur persistance in gettin d right brush fr u…bada wala thumbs up fr getting this 🙂

  4. i louvvvvreeeee this brush…226 is a favorite must have for people with small eyes!
    its a good deal……n somehow I end up liking the tester brushes too so I am with u over this!

  5. I generally use my 217 only for the crease, since on most days I use only a single eyeshadow color – too much work in morning to apply & blend for office… I like the shape of this – it must help you create very defined creases – esp in those very pretty festive looks that you create 😀
