as much as I love MAC, I've seen too many dupes of the 239 to actually buy it! I have 3 or 4 of the Loew&Cornell's Maxine's Mop 5/8" from Michael's that work perfectly fine for me! you might want to check them out as well!
Yeah I love the 239 for really packing on shadows. Its really good for eyeshadows that are glittery, or have a lot of fallout, and is fab for pigments! I never thought of using it for brow highlights. Hmm.. Must give it a try!
i love this brush a little too much, i won't even say how many i own!
but it's my fave eye brush that i own!
it's amazing for the lid, browbone and even applying stuff to the lower lash line because it's quite stiff. the only downside is that if you use a really bright colour it tends to stain the brush. like when i foiled mutiny pigment on my lids the brush is now stained a light blue colour. i have also got on stained red and one green too
i think that's why i keep buying more because i like to have a clean looking one!
Can you believe it, I just bought it! After so many years using the cheapo SE one. lol I love it! It picks up a lot of color even if the color payoff is horrible in a shadow. I only used it on my lid and blend with it a lil using the edge.
239 is great for patting eyeshadow onto the lid. For brow bone, I use the 217 since it's larger so one sweep usually does the job. Sometimes there are harsh lines left so I use the 217 to both highlight brow bone and blend out the lines. This way the eye colors look smoother!
So I got one and I <3 it! What is MAC's most popular brush for the brow bone? I've always used the same brush for both. I've been using the 239 under my brows and it seems to be fine, IDK what I'm missing out on! lol
