Sure you guys have heard this before, but which MAC e/s brush is your fave?

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have a million e/s brushes, but none of them are high-end. I but most of mine from drugstores and Target and they really are great, but it is about time to get some new ones so I was thinking about splurging on a MAC brush or 2. I looked at the Website, and there are so many I don't know which ones to choose from! I need to know which ones are the most versatile and what you use it for- lid, crease, blending, highlighting, etc.

Oh yeah, going to a MAC store and looking for myself is not an option- the closest MAC retailer from where I live is 70 miles away.

I love the 239 for packing on colors and then 242 to put on pigments, oh and of course the blending brush, its my savior! (I believe thats #217 or 219 cant remember).

dang i wish i had one 70 miles away.. would love that..

for the brush it would be Mac 217 for the crease & blending.. love love love it.. I bought 2 of them.. one for crease and blending, and one for just putting highlighter under my brow.. 239 is good to pack the eyeshadow on your lids..

if you want to smudge eyeliner under your eyes, the 219 is a must..

but if you can only have 2 brushes..

i would choose the 217 & 239...

Mac makes really good brushes.. you will like them.. beware, after you get some, you will want to get more !! haha

I was definitely thinking the 239, and the 217 looks like its the best at multi tasking. About wanting more, I know I will, thats why I have been settling for my little cheapie brushes!

Oh, and I forgot about YSL No. 4 brush. It's the best for putting the shadow under the eye or defining and finishing up. And it's small, that's good smile.gif.

I only have the 239se and it's great for packing on shadow or putting it on the lid.

My favorite brush is actually a cheap one I got on eBay - but lost it somehow frown.gif

It's the same shape as the 239 but smaller and flatter.

And my 224 - love it for blending! Love! I'm officially converted to that brush.

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
