Great Smudge Brush!!
Tags +Blending, Shading
I love this brush. It works great to smudge out your liner for a softer look, or go over top of the liner with a shadow for a smokey effect. Very happy to welcome it into my brush collection.

Can't live without
Tags +Lining, Shading, Applying, smoky look, applying shadow as liner on top lash line
I do not have anything new to add to all the other rave reviews, except that if one more positive review encourages you to buy this brush, then go for it! I prefer to go over my eyeliner with dark shadow to soften the harsh line. This tool does it perfectly. Also, I was told by the MAC store saleslady that this is only available online or in MAC stores, as I found out because Nordstrom and Macy's did not have this.

I like it
Tags +Lining, Shading, Applying, smudging
This brush is great for packing on color on the lid, however I wouldn't blend with this, it's too stiff. I also use this to put eyeshadow onto my lashline, it's great for that as well. It can also smudge out liner, like it says lol.
But, all in all, if you own the 239 and 219, I think you can skip this brush. The 214 is a good mix of both without the blending ability.

Its the Perfect Lid Packer and Smudger
Tags +Lining, Shading, Applying, smudging packing on shadowslining with shadows
This is such an awesome brush!
It packs on the shadow...... anywhere you want it!
Then it can smudge out anything!
The hairs are short and are densely packed.
Yet, the hairs are still very soft.
I haven't had a single hair poke my lids....like my 239 does sometimes.
But, I absolutely love and cannot live without my 239 brushes! I have 2, 239's.
I actually needed 1 more, since I use a lot of different colors on my eyes.
But, this 214 solved that problem!!!!!! :)
The hairs taper together... thinly and very firmly... at the top.
Which creates a thinner line when using shadows as your eye liner. And of course it makes it perfect for smudging!
I am so happy MAC finally gave us this smudger/shader brush.
It was totally needed in my arsenal of brushes! ;)

I reach for this quality, versatile brush daily. Great for applying a darker eye shadow close to the lashes, When I want more intensity, I wet it and it grabs more pigment.

Smudge!
Tags +Shading, smudge
I use this brush for smudging my eyeliner on the top and bottom lid. Stiff bristles but soft! It is worth the cost and will last you forever!

Smudge that color!

I only use this brush to smudge my eyeliner and color around my eyes. I also use it to soften my gel liner! LOVE that MAC added this brush to the permanent collection!

Wonderful addition
Tags +Blending, Shading
to my now favorite brushes by MAC. Don't know why I waited so long to purchase the 214 brush; it really is an essential in my everyday look. It works my eyeliner like any other brush and I love the finished look of a shaded eye! Bristles are little rough and tight but still smooth enough of delicate skin. LOVE this brush!
