MAC Eyeshadow Brushes | Review & Haul

I recently purchased a selection of MAC eyeshadow brushes from depop. If you haven't heard of depop, definitely check it out it's basically eBay meets Instagram. You can buy and sell and like other people's items, you can get TopShop dresses and high end makeup for a fraction of the price, it's like a piece of heaven. My username on depop is alittlekiran and I am selling a bunch of clothes sizes 8-10. 


The brushes above are what I received, there are seven brushes in total. Six of them are MAC brushes and one is from Me Makeover Essentials. They are all high quality brushes, I've heard so many great things about MAC brushes which is why I wanted to buy them. I desperately want the MAC 217 Blending Brush because it is a cult product that everyone raves about. Unfortunately, that is not in my haul but maybe next time. If you have any recommendations for other MAC brushes that are worth buying I would love to hear about them in the comments. Now for the links and details and all that good stuff:


I use this to smudge shadow or liner onto my upper and lower lash lines. It gets really close and is a must have for any smoky eye look. 
MAC 212 FLAT DEFINER BRUSH


This is a smaller more precise blending brush, great for focusing colour on the outer corner of the eye. Then using a fluffier blending brush to blend out the shadow.  
MAC 219 PENCIL BRUSH


A flat-tipped, paddle shaped brush, perfect for applying cream or powder products. You could also use it to apply lipstick with precision or smudge out liner.
MAC 231 SMALL SHADER BRUSH


A short, rounded, double-chiselled brush with soft natural bristles. I use it to add depth to the lid, very handy when it comes to rusty coloured fall looks where you blend a multitude of brown, orange and red on the lid to create a really cool gradient effect.
MAC 214 SHORT SHADER BRUSH

This is an extra-fine synthetic brush that is ideal for lining the eyes. It is quite thin so you can manipulate the thickness of the liner and use it all around to define your eyes.
MAC 209 EYELINER BRUSH

Designed to create sharp lines; I love using this for the inner corners. Especially as the holidays are near, I love a bit of glittery shimmery goodness in my tear ducts. Sparkle. Sparkle. Sparkle! 
MAC 266 SMALL ANGLE BRUSH

 Similar to the MAC 219. It is a very soft brush, slightly fluffier than the 219, but great for blending out the edges of any eye look and diffusing pigmentation to create a soft hazy finish.

Thank you so much for reading. Leave a comment telling me your favourite brushes, I definitely want to hear which ones you love the most and I shall speak to you soon in another post about Halloween costume ideas! Have a great weekend.
