MAC 217 Brush: Worth The Hype?

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
I've actually already done this post earlier this year but when looking for it to link in a recent tutorial, I realised that I've accidentally deleted it somewhere along the lines. I think that the MAC 217 is one of the most highly talked about products that a lot of people, including myself wonder at some point "Is it worth the hype?" I thought I'd redo the post, not exactly but thereabouts to let you know what I think and if it is worth the hype.

The MAC 217 Blending Brush is just that. A big fluffy brush for blending the shadows into the crease and on the lid. Many beauty gurus often talk about this brush and segregate it from other MAC brushes as being "holy grail".

I received one earlier in the year as began to use it immediately to find out for myself what all the fuss was about. My first impression was that it's alot bigger than I had previously imagined but when using it, it slotted perfectly into my crease to produce a great blended colour. This brush is quite long and fluffy which allows it to really work the colour onto the lid.

At a steep $24 it is definitely pricey for what it is considering you can get a bunch of good Real Techniques Brushes for the same price. Despite this flaw in price, I would say that this is a good brush to have in your kit but there are probably lots of dupes available out there.

Overall I would say this brush is worth the hype but that does not mean to say that I would buy it again as I do believe there will be similar brushes on the market for a fraction of the price.
