Mini brush review

These are the brushes that I used for this look, and most of these brushes are what I use often making them my favorites.

I just recently invested in a few MAC brushes. Although they emptied out my wallet for a few weeks, they were very well worth it. I didn't know what a difference it made when trying to put on eyeshadow. They help out so much with adding more color onto my canvas and especially with the blending. I'll do a more in-depth review on my favorite and must have brushes soon.

(From top to bottom)
MAC 222  - I love this brush for blending colors in the outer corner of my eye. It does a great job in defining it.
MAC 219 - I never thought I would buy this brush but my friend recommended it to me. I love this brush because it packs on the color to my outer corner. I also use it to pack on pigments for my inner corner.
MAC 217 - My favorite brush for blending everything, period.
Random eyeshadow brush - I just use this for highlight. Actually I use whatever random brush that I grab for highlight whether it's a blending brush or an eyeshadow brush.
Sonia Kashuk eyeshadow brush - I think this one comes in two sizes. I used the smaller one since I was just going to add color to a small part of my eye. It packs on color real well.
*Not shown, but I love my MAC 266 brush for defining my eyebrows. It's been a staple in my make up bag since forever, even when I wasn't into make up. It's long lasting too, I've had it for about 4-5 years now and it still has much more life in it.
