This brush is great for cream products as advised by some colleagues at work. Hence I decided to buy it. The bristles are densely packed and one can feel the stiffness. The bristles looked strong and promising and are of synthetic material. I use it for cream products and use it more to dab the pigments and it really works well. I tried using this brush with powder products too and somehow did not feel disappointed with it's performance. It does not work as a great blender though. It is definitely easy to clean the brush as the bristles are of synthetic material hence 8 am able to wash it easily. I do not need to worry about losing too many bristles as rhey are pretty sturdy. The size of the brush is just perfect to hold in the hand. This brush is definitely very expensive compared to the other brushes in the market but it is an investment you make as they last really long.

This is the best brush I have ever utilized with regards to applying colors, extreme foil and duo-chrome shadows, and cream shadows. This is additionally the main brush I have discovered functions admirably to apply and mix out Colourpop shadows., It's not very huge and not very little - its without flaw. Its size makes this a phenomenal performing various tasks eye brush. While this isn't the most reasonable brush on earth, it's evaluated well IMO for what it does, in general quality, and life span. I have had dig for upwards 3 yrs regardless it works like new with zero shedding , it's without a doubt valued decently. Cutting straight to the chase I would likely pay significantly more for this if I needed to. if you are having blendability issues with expensive shadows and colors, do yourself a strong and attempt this brush. Best brush I have for applying or mixing cream shadows or introductions on the eye tops. You can likewise pack powder eye shadow on with this one. It's expensive, yet multi-utilitarian and so justified, despite all the trouble. As yet searching for a hoodwink, since Mac has chosen to re-try their brushes in every single manufactured variant. If you run over a unique one, snatch it!

The brush feels very soft on the eyelids. MAC Shader brush can be used for both powders as well as creamy eye shadows. I prefer it particularly for creating intense looks and giving a prominent shade on the eyes. MAC shader brush is one of the many makeup brushes the brand has to offer. It is a flat brush with tightly packed bristles and a curved end. It is basically used for applying products that need several strokes to blend. The brush does not form any lines of the product during application. One should be careful while buying this brush online as you may receive a duplicate or a damaged one. You have to dab the product over the eyelids or around the eyes for a perfect finish and swipe it. The quality is good and sturdy. You won’t see any fall out of bristles. It is firm and feels soft when applied. Even after the wash, the bristles are soft and good.

The MAC shader brush 242 is really good for applying eyeshadow (both creamy and powder), eyeshadow primer, and concealer. It is of lightweight – only 1.2g. I bought it from Amazon.com during some lightning deal, hence got it in a good discount. It helps to give a good crease to the eyeshadows and makes the application very neat and clear. If being held properly, it eases out the purpose of use. Although it is a bit of costly, still it is worth every penny. But at the same time, many other dupes are available too in the market with the same purpose of use. The quality is good and sturdy. You won’t see any fall out of bristles. It is firm and feels soft when applied. Even after the wash, the bristles are soft and good. So, overall, it is good and recommended. Moreover, it does not take much amount of product as well to waste.

MAC Shader Brush 242 is a perfect brush for applying eyeshadow and concealer cream at the spots under eyes. It is sleek with a thick bristles at the end. It is travel friendly. The price is expensive but does not surprise us as the mac products are ranged high. The bristles of the brush is flat and gives a proper application of any product. As the bristles are denser, it takes up loose powder particles and gently applies over the eyelids. It is also used to blend creamy concealer. The brush does not form any lines of the product during application. One should be careful while buying this brush online as you may receive a duplicate or a damaged one. You have to dab the product over the eyelids or around the eyes for a perfect finish and swipe it. It also does a perfect job when you blend two or more eyeshadows to get a smokey or dramatic eye look.

Only makeup lovers know the importance of the right brush. While everyone may not understand what the different types of makeup brushes used for, a makeup artist would exactly know how to get the best out of them. There are lots of makeup brushes available in the market that are just as good as the branded and expensive ones. However, professionals love their brands and will not give up their standards for any reasons. MAC shader brush is one of the many makeup brushes the brand has to offer. It is a flat brush with tightly packed bristles and a curved end. It is basically used for applying products that need several strokes to blend. For example, a concealer or an eye shadow primer or the eyeshadow itself, all these require blending. This brush can hold the required amount of product without fallouts since its tightly packed. You can use it to prime your eyelids or blend the eye shadows. However, for the price it comes at, I would rather opt for a cheaper brand because it doesn't feel like value for my money.
