The ultimate blending brush DUPE!

If you know about your smokey eyes then you will most likely have heard of the MAC 217 brush. This is a key staple in creating a beautiful smokey eye as it does all the work for you, blending any eyeshadow colour seemlessly onto the skin.

As a MAC brush you would expect it to be good, but what if I told you I have found a brush in the Zoeva set I mentioned a few posts ago for over half the price. The Zoeva 227 brush is practically the same size and shape and the bristles match the blending quality of the 217.

Either of these brushes are your best friend when it comes to blending an eye look, whether it is with a powder or cream product,  so if you haven’t got either of these brushes you have to go and get one!

Here is the MAC 217 in action:


I am applying the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in the colour Misty Rock, this is one of my new favourite products so there will be a full blogpost on it soon…

    I love Zoeva brushes: just so soft and amazing quality for a great price. Haven’t tried this one yet, but thanks to your review it is going on my wish list.

    I’ve never used brushes, but I’m wondering if I should start.

      You’ve never used any brushes!? If not then you should try them

        No never. It’s usually my finger or whatever the makeup came with. I found them harder to use but I think it’s bc I was used to NOT using them. I’ll have to find some good ones and start using them.

          Wow, yeah it must be because I can’t imagine doing my makeup without them. I would recommend either zoeva or real techniques as they are inexpensive but good quality
