REVIEW | MAC 266 BRUSH


Today I went into the city mainly for one thing...this MAC brush! For awhile now I have needed a small angled brush and the 266 is very famous among YouTubers and bloggers for creating the perfect brows and also for doubling up as a suitable eyeliner applicator. After hearing many fantastic reviews about it I managed to convince myself that this brush was worth the £16.50 MAC charge. There also obviously negative reviews along with the good, many of the negative were commenting on how it's not that good for applying eyeliner but after watching videos etc I decided that it's just your own personal preference on whether you like the look this brush gives when using it with eyeliner. So I'd look into it if you're thinking of purchasing!
                                                                                                                                               

As soon as I got home I was eager to try it out; so I did. As pictured above I firstly attempted using it to apply eyeliner. Today instead of using the gel I usually use I went for the black eyeshadow 'Crave' in the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette to create a softer look. I found that it made it so much easier for me and it instantly made the brush worth the money! Winged eyeliner has always been very tricky for me (so I tended to avoid it) and this made it much easier, previous to this brush I'd been using the Real Techniques fine liner brush to apply eyeliner. To perfect the winged eyeliner 'look' much more practice is needed but with the help of this brush I can tell it's going to be easier to do!
Secondly, I did my usual brow routine (I would picture it but there's one product too many to do so!). The 266 literally helped make my brows look much better. Things I instantly noticed is that the product picked up better on the brush, that the firmness of the brush is ideal and it's just overall perfect! I am planning on purchasing the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo very soon so I am so excited to try both that and the 266 together!
Finally, I 100% think this is worth the £16.50 I spent on it and I can see this brush becoming a holy grail for me very quickly! I also really do recommend this brush to anyone looking for a small angled brush!

Apologies for how long this post ended up being, I had no idea I had so much to say!
Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Some people say £16.50 is a lot of money to spend on a brush, but at the same time if you look after them properly MAC brushes last years! xo

    1. Exactly! I think that you pay for what you get with brushes, the cheaper they are the worst they're going to be etc! xo
