|MAC 211 pointed eyeliner brush|
The MAC 211 pointed liner brush is listed as a part of the current MAC Me Over collection. It's a very small brush that is used for lining the eyes. I bought it for use with gel liner, although I'm sure it would be useful for a wet powder liner as well. The bristles are cruelty-free synthetic fibers. This is a big plus for me, as I try not to buy fur brushes. The bristles are arranged into a precise point, as you can see in my photos. The shape of the brush is quite firm, though it does have a little bend. According to the sleeve, this brush was made in the USA.
So far I love my MAC 211. It holds its shape well and can draw an incredibly precise line. My previous go-to gel liner brush was Bobbi Brown's ultra-fine eyeliner, which is also a wonderful brush. The Bobbi Brown ultra fine eyeliner brush is a tiny flat brush so it is able to hold more liner and draw one continuous fluid line. However, it's not ideal for a precise wing, or lining underneath the eyes. The MAC 211 fills the gap I was looking for. It can draw a really thin line, so it's great for drawing a lash-like wing at the end of the eye. It's also great for using gel liner to line the lower lash line. The downside is that it can't hold as much product as my BB brush. I have to dip the brush a few times in the liner to completely line my eye. I have to use short strokes and sometimes layer if the line wasn't drawn thickly enough. However, this to be expected with a precise brush. You don't want it to pick up too much liner! Overall, this is a great brush, and I'm very happy to have this in my collection.
Here's the MAC 211 pointed liner brush next to my Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in black ink. You can see that it's a very small brush. You can also see that I love my gel liner! I haven't tried any MAC fluidlines yet, but I hope to do so soon.
I hope you enjoyed the photos and review of my newest brush, the MAC 211 pointed liner. I'm excited to have it, and have been using it every day. It's my 3rd MAC brush. (The other two were gifts). I'm pleased with the quality of all my MAC brushes and hope to add more in the future. In fact, I've been exploring MAC quite a bit lately. It's still a bit overwhelming due to the sheer number of products and finishes. I took the plunge and bought some permanent collection eyeshadows, as well as MAC Moleskin eyeshadow from the MAC Me Over collection. Hopefully I'll time to share some photos in the near future.
