Lacking
This brush is not dense. It is thin and does not pick up mascara well, nor does it apply well. MAC needs to re-do this brush. Especially for the premium price!!!! ADD MORE FIBERS!

Actually useful
Tags +natural handy
I noticed this brush a while ago but was skeptical, and recently I bought it to fulfill shipment and I am happy to say that it actually works quite well!!! The bristles are very firm, flexible and light, and the size of the fan is just right. You can really make lashes neatly separated and make mascara even, and it helps you to get to the lashes on the edge. You can easily use it horizontally or vertically. However, it is more for the daily/natural looking side, perfect and decent for office work. If you want to build volume or extend lashes, I wouldn't buy it. It is not a brush absolutely necessary but nice to have. I do not regret buying it at all.

It really isnt silly. Honestly.
Tags +prep
I ordered this brush on a whim. Even attempted to return it at the store thinking without using that it is a silly concept. So when I was unable to return it to the MAC counter at Macys, I thought well why not. It turned into an amazing add to my brushes. MAC mascara has always been flawless with no clumping on me. But I use this anyway to get a very fine look to the lashes. They almost look like false wispies style lashes after using this brush. Im even asked if my lashes are real. Also....Ive used numerous different mascaras in switching up my routine. The same look came out after using the brush after different mascaras including non-high end brands. AMAZING!

Nice brush but I'm returning mine. I didn't think it did much. Maybe I just don't know how to use it correctly.

In love
Tags +Applying, mascara
I LOVE this brush! I took a MAC pro class and the artist leading the class was using this brush to apply mascara & I was skeptical at first but I am not a fan of disposable applicators so I decided to give it a try. I have not been disappointed, it is really great for getting far down on the lash line and defining the lashes individually!

205 MASCARA FAN BRUSH
Tags +Applying
THIS BRUSH IS AWESOME. IT IS SMALL ENOUGH TO ACCESS THE CORNER OF THE LASH LINE. BEST DECLUMPING BRUSH ON THE MARKET. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE REMOTELY ON THE MARKET TO REMOVE CLUMPED UP MASCARA. THIS DELICATE BRUSH IS GENTLE TO THE LASHES AND INTEGRAL TO MAKE YOUR LASHES LOOK PERFECT!

Mascara Fan Brush
Tags +Applying
This is an excellent brush to apply mascara right down to the roots of the eyelashes. I like to use it on fair lashes to really get mascara all the way down to the lashline, Also I use it to go over the lashes if any shadow (loose pigments for instance) drops down onto the lashes. The bristles are a good length and firm. I have found that some lash fan brushes are too long and the bristles are too soft for a good application to the roots of the lashes.
I wouldn't recommend this brush if you want to build up mascara application for volume and length on lashes, but if you're looking for a natural application to lashes and to get into the base of the lashes, it's a must for your kit!
