An Ode To Mac's 217

I will happily admit that when it comes to makeup application, I haven't the foggiest clue what I'm doing. After many years of watching Youtube tutorials, I'm no closer to getting that sculpted Kardashian contour, the perfect winged liner or a smoky eye that doesn't look like someone has just punched me in the face. However saying that, there is one makeup tool that makes me feel like I actually somewhat know what I'm doing and that is the Mac 217 Blending Brush.

At £19 it's hardly a bargain buy but I think the fact I own three of the exact same brush shows how worthy it is. Well, it might also show just how much I hate cleaning my brushes but that's not the point of this post so let's just ignore that, shall we?

This is the blending brush of dreams. It's so unbelievably soft on the eyes which is something that I find drugstore equivalents just can't match. It blends my eye makeup both effortlessly and seamlessly and is wonderful for blending out colour in the crease and the outer corner of the eye. The quality of these is superb as I've had my original one for many years and it's still as good as new after many washes (okay, not that many) and a lot of wear and tear. 

The next time you're wanting to treat yo'self to something high end, let this brush be what you pick. If you're looking for a sign, permission or an enabler - here I am and I say buy it! Hell, why not buy three at once. It really is that good.

Who knew you could be smitten with a makeup brush, eh? Lovers come and go but this makeup brush right here, this is for life. I'm writing my vows right after I finish this post. 

Do you guys have any products or tools that you're absolutely in love with?
