Ah, the 226 brush, or as I like to call it- the things legends are made of. Typical MAC (and their sneaky ways) have managed to create such a versatile, highly effective crease blending brush only to make it limited edition. Why do they always do this with their best stuff? The 226 is a densely packed, tapered blending brush which has been repromoted with MAC's Summer 2011 collection, MAC Me Over. Far more tapered than the 217 and a lot shorter than the 224 ( all three pictured below together), the 226 is also packed a little less tight than the 219 pencil brush. This brush is ideal for girls with smaller eyes, hooded lids, or anyone who thinks the 217 takes eyeshadow too far past the crease of their eye. The quality of this brush is that like any other MAC brush- excellent color pickup, very minimum to zero shedding and soft luxurious bristle hairs to boot. The brush retails at a mere $24.50 but grab it while you can as this bad boy is flying off the shelves! COME ON, MAC! Make this a permanent already! Did you pick up the 226 this weekend?
