Review & Usage

MAC 209 Eye Liner Brush, 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush, and 211 Pointed Liner Brush are small synthetic fibre brushes primarily designed for detailed work such as lining the upper and lower lid line. They can be used with any type of product — cream, liquid, gel, or powder. I sometimes use them to “smudge” my eye pencil as well. Using the very tip of the brush will create a very thin and precise line, then you can angle the brush and use the side to draw a thicker line. All three of them feature wood handles and nickel-plated brass ferrules. I've had these brushes for a few years now and they seem to wash well, dry fast, and don't lose their shape over time.

Other note
Great for creating a winged out look! You can also use it to conceal spots, too!
Gives the most natural look. Creates an illusion of naturally full lashes without being obvious.
I love using this one to smudge my pencil eyeliner and drawing thick lines!
