MAC Magnetic Nude Collection 235 Split Fibre All Over Eye Brush Review
MAC 235 Split Fibre All Over Eye Brush is my first ever MAC brush from Collection Magnetic Nude. It’s been long time I brought this brush but then realized I don’t have enough eye shadows to even try and test to see how this brush actually performs. But now after testing both cream and powder shadows I am really happy with my MAC 235 brush.
I also picked up “It’s Physical” Fluid line which I already reviewed here on IBJ.
What MAC Claims: Subtle or sizzling, edgy or elegant, this split fibre brush allows you to create the eye look you’re longing for with its signature blend of goat hair & synthetic fibres.
Price: 2100 INR.
Mac is coming up these types of brushes a lot now a days with very collection. MAC Split Fibre Brushes are also called Semi- Precious brushes. Most of them are available at MAC stores and few of them were re-promoted with collections which makes them Limited Edition. MAC 235 All over eye brush is defined as Split fibre brush which means one side of the brush is made of goat hair and other side is made of synthetic fibre bristles. The body of the brush is similar to any MAC brushes with the brush number imprint on it. Washing the bristles is quite easy, I use my Mac brush cleanser first to clean it and then wash it with a baby shampoo. Neither way had I seen any shedding of bristles or bleeding of dye. The shape stays intact and need almost whole day to dry out.
MAC 235 Split Fibre All Over Eye Brush is thick, densely packed flat brush. It is domed shaped, slightly chubby for normal sized eyes. I personally feel like it is an over-sized brush to work on my eye areas however I enjoy using it to apply a single shade all over lids, applying a cream shadows and paintpots. The most importantly the thick edge of the brush helps in smudging the eyeliners extremely well. I am not yet ready to invest on high end eye makeup brushes but it’s really helpful when a single brush can be used for cream products, powder product as well as blending the edges. Although this brush is unnecessarily over sized but the synthetic side is best to apply cream shadows and the other side for packing on powder shadows. The stiff edge of the brush can also be used for applying shadows on lower lash line and smudging it.
What I like about MAC 235 Split Fibre All Over Eye Brush:
- The synthetic side is to be used for applying cream products.
- The goat hair side is to be used for powder products.
- The tip or edge of the brush is perfect for smudging eye shadows or eyeliners.
- Slim, black body with brush no. imprinted upfront. Travel friendly and lightweight.
- Soft and tensely packed bristles.
- Makes the application faster.
- Best for applying single colour all over lid above crease line.
- Doesn’t bleed AND shedding of bristles.
- Comfortable to apply, bristles are well organized, properly cut and well constructed.
What I don’t like about MAC 235 Split Fibre All Over Eye Brush:
- Price of course.
- Overly sized brush for small eyes. Too big for applying products inner corner of my eyes.
- Limited Edition brush.
I like this brush for its multi-functional application and I am enjoying each time. Because of the size I sometimes apply cream highlighter on my cheek bone, on Nose Bridge and cupid bow with this brush and it just work perfectly for me.
