If you're familiar with MAC's #217 blending brush, well here's an alternative & cheaper version of it. It looks exactly the same & performs almost the same. I say almost because I find that MAC's version of this brush is a little more dense & packs on color a lot better. However, with Sigma's version, it does a great job especially for the price that you're paying for. It blends shadows well, the bristles are soft and delicate on the eyes, & is $13.50 cheaper than the MAC one. Because the bristles are white, they can get stained if you use bright eyeshadows. I don't mind that at all. Brushes are meant to get dirty. I find myself reaching for this brush when I want to apply color to the outter corner of my eyes or to blend harsh lines that other blending brushes can't blend out. I will be giving away a brush just like this to ONE lucky blog follower of mine. Please read details below.
