One of the best brushes ever.
I have been lusting over MAC brushes my entire adult life, but never was able to justify the cost of the brush for the application. Almost $40.00 for an eye makeup brush seems excessive, but this particular brush was worth it. It feels like I am applying makeup with a fluffy cloud and does not compare with any other brushes in my collection - in fact, I haven't used another brush since I received this in the mail. It is worth every penny.

Disappointment
Bought this brush and was disappointed. Shedding all over my face and eyes as I was blending for a smokey eye, finally went back to the MAC store, Next to try the #217

Amazing brush!
I wasn't sure if I really needed this or not, but it is so versatile! I have a very small kit, and this really is one of my must haves. So great for eyeshadows and of course blending. I also use this for my under eye highlight with powder, and sometimes even face highlight. It works wonders. Only negative is that it is very delicate. Something was laying on top of it, and the bristles are a bit bent. :(

Big fluffy soft! NOT for small lids
Tags +firm soft light
This brush feels really comfortable on skin, but because it is a bit on the big side for eye, it probably doesn't fit greatly for small lids. It blends beautifully and doesn't get out of shape even though the bristles spread out because it is firm enough to provide precision, firmer than 217, but not great for extremely detailed usage like the inner corner. I also use it for concealer sometimes and it works fine too. I also find the bristles don't get dirty as easily as the white ones, which is a plus.

Best blending brush ever!
Tags +Blending, looking awesome!
I am just starting my MAC brush collection and have no idea how I've lived without them thus far! Just wow! I received this brush along with a few others a week ago (they are all just as amazing as this one) I immediately washed them as I was SO excited to get started using them. After applying my MAC eye shadows, I used this to sweep over the entire lid and was amazed at the transformation that took place! It flawlessly blended my shadows and I received more compliments than ever before! The bristles are so soft... no tugging or irritation at all. I'm in love with all the brushes I purchased and will continue to add to my arsenal but this has got to be my favorite so far <3 Thank you Wayne Goss for showing me the light lol

Not up to par
Tags +Blending
This brush has splayed out with very little use and is not nearly as soft as other brands of eye brushes. Its not comfortable to use for blending and seems to slightly scratch and irritates my lids. I expect more from MAC.

The best blending brush ever!
Tags +Blending, Applying
This is my favorite blending brush OF LIFE! Since purchasing this brush, I don't even reach for my 217 anymore. My 217 has become use-less to me. The 224 just blends eye-shadow so perfectly and evenly. It doesn't drag colors around, like alot of low-quality brushes do. It just gives an even transition of colors. LOVE!

So glad I finally took the plunge!
Tags +Blending
I have been skeptical for a long time about paying top dollar for tools, but after purchasing this baby and taking her for a spin I do understand why its so important to have good tools! I am not lacking in make up skills but this just took them to a new level! .. As well as making blending look so beautiful and professional. I am sooo happy I finally did this.. I want more!!

MAC 224 brush
Tags +blending in crease, Contouring, setting powder under eye area, applying color
I really like the brush for blending everything thing out in my crease from start to finish, but I will say it's harder to work with on smaller eyelids and that I wish it were a little softer. :-)

Cost too much to be shedding!
Tags +precise crease application
I recently purchased this brush after hearing all the hype... When I received it I was so excited. However, it's shedding like crazy! From the day I opened it until now...disappointed

Perfect Blender

I love this brush. It gives the soft blendable effect that my 217 has never given me. Great for making soft transitions in the crease.

Awesome blending, but...
Tags +Blending, Shading, Applying
It does an awesome job for blending, but the brush falls apart so easily!! The bristles started falling out the second I opened the package. It was so bad I thought about returning it, but when I used it, my mind was changed. It's the best blending brush I've used so far! It blends colors for the perfect smokey eye.

This brush right here is the Cadillac brush to all blending brushes. It will take your look to another level. After 7+ yrs of using MAC I just discovered it and do not know how I lived without this!
