What MAC says:
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 gel liner into eye shadow to create a smoky looking eye.
The brush number usually gets rubbed off after a few uses so I suggest applying a thin coat of clear nail polish over it. I have done this for all my MAC brushes.
The bristles are white in colour.So make sure you clean the brush after every use else the colour gets accumulated and gives a dirty look. The bristles are very firm and they pick the product very well. The bristles are very soft and not harsh on the skin at all. It is rightly called as a pencil brush as the bristles are pointed and stiff, simply right for small detailed work on the difficult areas of the brush.
Iam a kohl addict and love smokey eyes. This is the perfect brush for smokey eyes. I use this to smudge my kohl/kajal on the lower/upper lash line, to apply eyeshadow/highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes and for the perfect “v” shape.
I would not call it as a must have, but if you are a person who loves doing smokey eye look, then this may be your best brush. The quality of the brush is simply amazing.I have cleaned it so many times but it has never shed a single bristle till now.
Final words:Your perfect brush for smokey eyes.
