Controlled Application
Tags +good control
The brush is for either lid application or/and crease contouring.
I bought it after all the hype and how it is THE brush to crease diffuse and blend.
It's not the best. Nor the worest.
I won't reach for it that often.

Simple yet essential!
It's been a couple of days since I've received this brush, but I must say it is quality. Now is it worth $25? No. However, it is worth it for us eyeshadow junkies. I used this brush for my lid, apply color to my crease, add a transition color and overall blending. At first, I felt it was too stiff for crease work but it takes some time to get use to. Other than that minor con, it's a very good brush and I can do so much with it. I even contour my nose with this brush. I will aim to get the 224 next!

Mac 217
I loved this product so much I bought a second brush. I wish there was a Mac store near by so that I could review the products.

Pleasantly Surprised!
I used to be really skeptical about purchasing expensive brushes, but I heard really phenomenal reviews about this brush in particular. So I decided to get over my skepticism and give it a try. I compared the application with my cheap eco tools blending brush with this mac one, and wow. This mac brush does incomparably better. It took more product from my eyeshadow palette and blended it beautifully. It makes so much of a difference. Now I don't look like a little kid did my makeup. Best $25 bucks spent on makeup stuff.

Best Crease Brush Ever!
I finally broke down and bought this after hearing so many people rave about it on tutorials. It's worth the money and the hype. It's the best crease brush ever. The tapered end allows you to be precise with product placement, especially in deep creases like mine. It's also fluffy enough to blend out product pretty flawlessly. My only complaint is that I've now realized that I need more than one!

Collection Staple!
This is my favorite brush I have in my collection. It blends perfectly, and has yet to shed. I have had used this brush daily for over a year, and it still looks new when cleaned.

BEST BRUSH EVVVRRRRRR
Tags +blends like a dream, super soft bristles, goes back to original shape after washing
This brush is a serious game-changer. It'll amp-up your blending skills instantaneously. If I was only able to use one brush for the rest of my life—this would be the one (no set number of them tho lol).
I wash them with shampoo & condition them with my argan oil conditioner. I let them dry horizontally overnight(head over an edge), & the next day they're as good as new!
Honestly the best blending brush I've come across, so I keep getting more!
If you're reading reviews because you're on the fence about purchasing this brush, do yourself a favor & just buy it. You won't regret it.

Not a great brush
Tags +soft
Well I don't know how most of reviews & also the website says its a great brush with Mac Studio Finish concealer. It is not. I really find it average. It does not make the concealer go really smooth. I know to use brushes. So the practice is not a problem.

A Must-Have in EVERYONE'S Makeup Bag!
Tags +soft bristles, easy to apply, easy to blend
The MAC #217 Blending Brush is a must-have in EVERYONE'S makeup bag! The bristles are so soft which makes it extremely easy to apply and blend eyeshadow. This brush blends perfectly and doesn't hurt my eyelids like other brushes do. The only thing I hate about this is the price. $17 for a BRUSH? Oh well, it'll last forever and I'm happy with it!

My experience
I never owned a MAC brush before but I am starting my makeup collection so I decided I'd give it a try since everybody claims that this brand has quality brushes.A MAC employee recommended this particular brush for blending which I agree it does its job! However I recently cleaned it and the hairs started to loose its shape and also has flyaway hairs,this is sad I wished it would have stayed like new after only one wash. I assume it will still do its job. On the other note the I am not sure what type of hair is made of but it has an animal smell to it.

In love
This brush simply changes everything when applying shadows on lids. Blend colors like a dream! It's enough to use a light hand because that will help you to get that beautiful effect of perfectly gradient shadows. Is definitely one of my favs.

217 Crease Brush Par Excellence
Tags +Blending, Shading, crease work
Wow, I mean WOW! This is buy far the best shaped brush for crease work, as well as blending it all out. I am infatuated with this beauty. The 217 blending brush is the Crème da la créme! It has a flatter side to really get in the crease and a fluffier side to blend it all out. Gorgeous.

I was looking for a brush for my concealer and a MAC employee showed be the 217 brush and I really liked the coverage that it gave me. I applied it on my blemishes and under my eyes and really liked it. I ended up purchasing one and after the first use the brush started to hurt my skin under my eyes when I applied it. This is a great brush but I would not recommend using it under your eyes, it is too rough.

Not all of your brushed need to be MAC, but you do need this one. It is sooo awesome at blending colors beautifully. It doesnt waste product and is always my go to crease brush.

A few mixed feelings on this?
Don't get me wrong this is a great brush. I wonder if I got a bad brush? I've seen YouTube reviews n my brush doesn't look the same? I may repurchase.
