  1. MAC 217 will ALWAYS be my favourite blending brush. ALWAYS. Well, probably. Hahaha.

    I love the burberry brush!

    I don’t own the MAC 217 but I have a Costal Scents dupe that’s one of my favorite eye brushes! They’re super veratile! I’ve actually tried these brushes while working at Nordstrom and I totally agree that they’re must haves! I’m actually thinking of hauling them anyway even though I have dupes. I really like the quality of MAC brushes

    I clicked on this wondering what brush you’d convince me I needed, and the answer is the Burberry one. I have the three mac brushes, and love them, plus I have mac 228 that I think is pretty similar to the little Too Faced brush, and so I will try it for along the brow bone, that’s brilliant.

    But I am totally lacking a nice pencil brush!

    it has been a long day! and when i get my day off on friday, i’m going to enjoy going through the posts you’ve put up from the week! i love the videos, karen!

    it has been an 11+ hour day. pretty cool, though. working with a company that has an office based in the santa clara area. it was so nice to see a Bay Area area code!!!! whaaa whaaa?! 🙂

    i need to go home again. getting withdrawals.

    keep the videos/posts coming! looking forward to my rest day of ice cream and catching up on MBB!

    Totally unrelated to brushes – what nail polish are you wearing?? Is it green? I am obsessed with finding a dark green polish and keep finding only full-on glittery or so-dark-it-looks-black. Fail.

    …I almost exclusively use my fingers for eyeshadow 😛 Does that make me a bad person? I would like to try the glory that is (apparently) MAC 217, but $70+ for a brush is a bit more than I can stomach!

    I loved this video. Surprisingly enough I don’t have any of the brushes you talked about. I think it’s time to expand my eye brushes collection.

  10. Deborah says:

    Ooh, I’ve been meaning to invest in some great eye brushes and these seem pretty marvelous! 😀

    I’ve also heard a LOT of great things about Sigma brushes — would you ever consider doing a review of how those babies stack up next to MAC brushes?? (Especially the eye brushes!)

  11. Kiara says:

    MAC 239 is an absolute favorite of mine! Don’t know how I lived without it really!
