    My favorite crease brush is Trish McEvoy’s. I’ve had mine for years!

  2. Kimie says:

    OMG you’re so right about the 217! You’d hafta pry that one out of my cold dead hand! I feel your pain with the 224, but it cranks for concealer!

  3. Indian Girl says:

    My fav crease brush right now, is this one from Trish McEvoy. It is just the right combo of sturdy and soft…to blend away those harsh crease lines !

  4. Karen B says:

    I have the 224 but I use it mainly for blending and a quick wash of colour all over the lid.
    I’d love to get the 217 and 226 though…

  5. Tekoa says:

    These videos are so darn useful, and I am in sore need of a crease brush.

    Hey Karen,

    I’m a monolid, do you have any suggestions for contouring? Keeping in mind my eye area isn’t that big 🙂

  7. victoria says:

    i feel the same with the 224, some days i love it, some days i hate it. 226 is more precise than 224 but still getting the hang of it. 217 does everything, i love it so much i have 2.

  8. Marisol says:

    217 & 224 are my go to crease brushes.

    I love the 217 brush. I first bought the 224 brush because someone recommended that I should buy it to create the outer v look. It took a long time for me to get the hang of it. It never really looked right until I bought the 217. If I knew how great the 217 was before I bought the 224, I wouldn’t have bought the 224. 217 does everything!

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Joanne,

    Thanks for the rec — I’ll have to hunt that one down and check it out. 🙂

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Kimie,

    I’ve never tried to use the 224 as a concealer brush… I’ll have to give that a go sometime. Do you use it wish liquid concealer?

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Indian Girl,

    I will have to look into that one! 🙂

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Those are the same ways I use the 224.

    Yes, you need the 217! It does *everything*!

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Tekoa,

    We need to get you a 217 ASAP! 🙂

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Xtina,

    I have a friend who works as a MAC artist and she has a monolid. She likes to use the 217. 🙂

    You also might also want to look into the 226 because the head is smaller and thinner than the 224!

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Victoria,

    I am thinking I need to get a second 217, too.

    Wouldja believe that for years I only used it for concealer? It took me awhile to figure out that it was great for so many other things.

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    Ahh the 224! Have you tried the 226 yet? It’s basically the smaller version of the 224.

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Joanne,

    I tried the 224 in the outer V a few times and I just couldn’t get it to work, either.

    But yeah… I’m all about the 217! I think I need a few extras, LOL.

  19. feena says:

    hye..im using 226 its gud…juz bought it last week.
    but still looking into 217 omg i need more cash..hahhahaha

  20. Sherri says:

    This video is right on time, I needed to know which brush is the best crease brush and you have answered my question. I will probably go with the MAC 217!!!! YEAH!!
