The brush that changed my (makeup) life!

Everyone always raves about MAC brushes on just about every blog, tutorial and video. Unfortunately, these little babies do get a little on the expensive side. This post is just a quick review on my favorite brush from MAC.

It’s the MAC 213 brush.

I bought this brush when I was in high school and I had just started expanding my makeup collection. That was 4 years ago. Today, my brush looks every bit as good as they day I bought it. I have used it almost every single time I put on my eye shadow—whether it was a casual hangout or an important presentation—and washed it every now and then to keep it clean. I can assure you, this brush is an investment.

It is a flat brush, with a rounded top, so every angle of the brush can be used for a different function. The 213 brush is great for applying eye shadow all over lid, for definition in the crease and for highlighting under the brow. I sometimes even pull some of my crease color using the tip of my brush to my lower lashes about halfway to the inner corner for a softer defined look (rather than using eyeliner).
This is definitely my favorite brush and I have gotten just so attached to it, I’m used to using it every day!

MAC brushes, especially this one, are definitely investments.

Have you tried this brush before? What do you think of it?
