Favorite MAC brush
Tags +Shading, Applying
This brush does (almost) everything. It is great for packing color onto your lids. The shape is perfect because it's slighting rounded and you can get that precise shape to stay right on the lid and it's also good for those smaller areas, like right in the inner eye or right on the brow bone. You can use the edge to create your "crease". This brush can even do some blending, especially if you want to blend between two colors of the same intensity. I use it to apply darker colors on my outer lid and lighter color on the inside. I switch back and forth between the colors using less and less until I have the desired "blended" look. The great thing is that you pack as much or as little on this brush as you want and it will apply it just where you want it. I think this is the brush that most people are looking for, but they just don't know it. I think you can do your entire eye makeup look with just this brush, you just have to play around with it and figure out all the things it can do. The only thing it can't do is that soft wash of color effect that some of the other MAC brush can do. The bristles are too dense for that.

MUST HAVE; Best brush money can buy
Tags +packs on colour, blends, highlights, smudges, multi-use
Look no further, this is the best shadow brush money can buy. If you only have enough money to get one MAC brush, I *HIGHLY* recommend this be the one. I drove 2 hours to my local MAC store, simply because I have been spending a LOT of money online and getting the wrong shades. The manager was the one to help me, and she suggested doing my makeup to help me find the perfect products. Now I will start by saying I have been looking at brushes, and by no means was this one at the top of my to-buy list. When the artist got to my eyes she pulled out the 239 shader brush. First, she packed the base color all over my lid, and this brush did so better than any brush I've used previously. Next, she applied the following colour in my crease, and blended. This brush did a better blending job than any blending brush could do. She then, still using this brush, applied a deep purple in my outer V, blending that FLAWLESSLY as well. Still using, yep you guessed it, this SAME BRUSH, she applied the highlight on my brow bone and the shadow on my lower lash line. The end result was amazing. The best eye look I've ever seen. All done with the one and only, 239 brush. This brush is so nice and soft, yet still picks up a ridiculous amount of product that all goes onto the lid, none sticking to the brush. One would think because of that there would be a lot of fall out, but not one drop fell onto my face. This brush is the ultimate multitasker; it can pack, blend, smudge, highlight, and apply to the lower lash line.. just to name a few. All for under $30!! Great brush, MAC!

This brush is..
(in my opinion)
#1. Super soft
#2. Extremely multi-useful. Basically a 3-in-1
#3. PERFECT FOR BUILDING COLOR
#4. Applies eyeshadow smoothly
When I first purchased this brush, I just spent hours just discovering all the things it could do. One of the main reasons I loved it so much is because it allows me to do both a dramatic OR natural eye. So no matter what type of look you prefer to have, you can accomplish it with this brush!

Very good for it's price
Tags +Shading, Applying
I really like the brush. It's very soft, smooth, I like the cut and to me it's one of every ladies must have brushes. It's especially good for the price, because I believe, the brush can be used for a while (if taken care of), so I gave the brush 5 stars out of five, in the meaning of price-quality. Yes, some of the brushes on the market are much better -- Hakuhodo, Shu Uemura, etc., but I believe, this one does really good job for it's money.
I especially recommend it for beginners, in my opinion it's perfect for leaning.

I love this brush for every little thing. I use this to pack color on the eyelid and smooth it out, but it could be used for so much more. I really want another one so I can use it with more colors during one application. This is a quality brush and well worth the money. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to start a good eye brush collection because this is just so multipurpose.

love this brush but dont expect it to stay white
Tags +Applying
This is one of the best brushes i have ever used it picks up just the right amount of color to make most any shadow (assuming its pigmented) true to pan color! However it will not stay white even with constant cleaning not a deal breaker or anything but I figured id save someone else the excess brush cleaner.

Amazing
I've had this brush for 9 years. I've yet to replace it. I've had little to no hair fallouts. By far the best investment I ever made with makeup brushes.

239 Is a Friend of Mine
Tags +Blending, Lining, Shading, Applying
MAC brushes are always the first brushes I grab for. Their quality, accuracy, and sleek look are one of a kind. The 239 is such a staple brush for anyone's make-up brush collection. It's great for apply product, blending, shading and just about anything else to do with your eyes.

Well-Made Brush 239
Tags +Shading, packing eyeshadow on
I love this brush. It packs on color effortlessly. It is dense enough to load up as much product that you need. Just pat it on your eyelid, or tear duct and you're good to go. This is now one of my favorite eye brushes. I need a few more. This and the 239 Blending Brush and you're on your way to a truly beautiful eye. Glam on!

Super happy with this brush
Tags +Shading, Applying
I cannot say enough positive things about the quality of the MAC brushes. I have been a customer of MAC for over 10 years and I use this brush mainly for emollient eye shadows like the paint pot but also for shading using the standard eye shadow. The bristles of this brush are just short enough, firm enough, full enough and soft enough. I often use one side of the brush to put on an eye shadow base and the other to use a powder before cleaning. Excellent brush. Very soft and easy to use and the quality is outstanding.

I love this brush. I use it to apply my powder eye shadows. You can use it to blend, lining, and shading. Its a perfect multitask brush! It's extremely soft, yet built with great density. Would I buy this again, Yes!

One of My Favorites
Tags +Blending, Lining, Shading, Applying
This brush is amazing. I have been collecting MAC brushes for quite a while and this was my first one, and it remains one of my favorites. It is great for lining your eyes with shadow, packing color onto your lid, highlighting under your brow, and so much more. I recommend this brush to anyone who wears eye makeup. Though it is expensive it will last you forever if you are careful with it and wash it with MAC's brush cleanser regularly.

I am in love with this brush! I can't say enough about it! For me having smaller eyes I even use it more for blending than the 217. It is the perfect amount of everything for me!
