Let's face it, we are all addicted to our brilliantly priced, amazing real techniques brushes so forking out that much money on a single brush can seem ridiculous, however, I do not regret this purchase at all.
I've always had issues with the application of eyeshadow, no matter how many pixiwoo tutorials I watched I just always seemed to look like a 5 year old had done my makeup. However, the 217 is an absolute game changer. The soft, densely packed and angled bristles means you can create a beautifully blended wash of colour literally instantly. The eyeshadow world is now my oyster. I think if you are planning on taking the mac brush plunge, make sure it's this one.
I'm usually a simple matte neutrals kinda gal when it come to my eyes but lately I've been craving a little shimmer and have discovered Woodwinked by MAC. This shadow is just peeerfect for Autumn. I would describe it as a browny/rusty colour and is great for wearing with lashings of black mascara for an everyday work look which can also be smoked up if you want to make things a bit more exciting.
