I have a thing for unique kinds of brushes - this includes that are limited edition. During the Shop MAC, Cook MAC launch, I saw their limited edition fluidlines. One of MAC's makeup artist, Odessa, said that her favorite eyeliner brush is the 211 brush but MAC Manila does not carry it. Boo. Seriously.
That information triggered me to get a hold of the MAC 211 brush. I have MAC 266 brush and I love it to bits. I've always loved using an angled eyeliner brush for gel liners. I like it better than bent eyeliners because it's easier for me to do a winged-eye line.
After googling left and right, I found out that MAC 211 brush is one of the smallest brushes of MAC! Some say the price is quite steep for such a brush. But I just had to find it out for myself.

I think I have found my new favorite eyeliner brush! No kidding! Application is much easier compared to an angled eyeliner brush. I don't have to angle the brush in such a way that it would be easier for me to apply the eyeliner. I can just turn and turn the brush and apply the gel liner. It's also a breeze using this eyeliner brush to create a winged-eye look!
It's true when they said that this has got to be one of the smallest brushes of MAC. The hair of the brush is probably lest than 1mm only. But it still does the job. However, I'm more careful with this brush particularly when cleaning because there is a big tendency that the product will make its way to the ferrule. So, I alway clean this holding the downwards the sink rather than side ways.
My mom got this in HK for HKD140. The brush isn't available at our MAC counters here in Manila and the SAs don't know why either. And honestly, that quite sucks because you're left with only 208 and 266 eyeliner brushes. Although though brushes are quite as good, it's still better if you have more options.
I love this so much that I'm planning to buy a back up. Or find a dupe - whichever happens first.
Happy Thursday, loves!
