This is the third of my MAC brushes. My mom gave me this one too. I mean it's not like she uses it. She doesn't even own eyeshadow!!! If she hadn't given it to me I would have had to buy it for $22.50. But I think it's worth it.
For shading or blending of colour or creamy products. This brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature wood handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules.
I absolutely looove this brush. It's the best for blending but it also applies a wash of color really well too. I'm not sure what it's made of but it picks up just the right amount of shadow. The only thing I don't really love about this brush is that it's white. That means when it's dirty you can tell. Pooh.
With that said, I really like it but there are definitely less expensive alternatives if you aren't willing to fork out the money for it!!
