Reviewing my brush from MAC 217 Blending Brush. It is available in 2 sizes a long handle and a short handle. I have the short handle one, which very travels-friendly and does not make much of a difference during application.

My experience with MAC 217 Blending Brush

M.A.C brush 217 is meant for blending but every brush has its multiple uses and so does this brush. It bristles of the brush are so soft and arranged in an oval shape which perfectly fits on the eyelids to blend the product. The tip is almost pointed which makes the product more precise. It works well in the eye makeup in an entire manner like filling, creasing, contouring, buffing and blending. Other than that

·        Face Contouring

·        Highlighting

·        Applying concealer

·        Applying Powder

All of it needs a good blend to give a good look and this is what the brush does. The synthetic fibers are so densely packed that makes the product fluffy and works well for blending in the harsh lines. It’s very easy to work with creamy and emollient-based products with this brush.

The bristles of the brush are white in color with wooden handle and nickel-plated brass ferrules pained in black. It gives a very luxurious feel. I have been using it for very long. I keep cleaning the brushes time to time, as it is important for a hygienic use.

The overall performance of MAC 217 Blending Brush


  • Soft and fluffy bristles
  • Oval shaped
  • Rounded brush (perfect for blending)
  • Multiple uses

Would I recommend?

The makeup tools are really important to be of good quality for longevity and good application. This is one of them and would recommend it to all.
