Blending brushes

I need a blending brush for my eyeshadows, so I checked out MAC's collection at their webpage.
Have you got one of these? If you do, which one is your favorite?




Eyecolon 217 Blending Brush
For shading or blending of colour or creamy products. This brush has fine, densely packed fibers that are arranged in an oval shape. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature birch, linden and ramin wood handles, nickel-plated brass ferrules.
17 cm


Eyecolon 222 Tapered Blending Brush
Applying, contouring or highlighting powder-based products such as eye shadow, powder, or Pigment. Soft round "brush" tapers into a tip. Of natural fibres.
17 cm


Eyecolon 224 Tapered Blending Brush
For controlled eye shadow application. This brush has soft fibers which taper to form a medium size dome shape. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature birch, linden and ramin wood handles, nickel-plated brass ferrules.
17 cm



Eyecolon 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush
Short tapered, blending brush with ultra-soft, natural bristles। For application and blending of shadow on the lid, and perfect for working the crease.

The brush doesn't have to be from MAC, so if know about an other alternative that's maybe cheaper, I would be really happy to know!
I heard somebody talk about using Loew's painting brushes as makeup brushes. The price is really good, so if anyone have good feedback, I will maybe try it!
Have you ever tried Loew's brushes for makeup before? What do you think?

217 brush was my first blending brush! it blends amazingly easy. it has more control since is denser then the 222 or 224.. as for the 226 i'm not sure. i haven't used it before since it's a limited edition brush. but anywho i would go for the 217!=]

and check out coastalscents.com for cheaper brushes very similar to mac brushes =]

I think 217 seems the best to, or it's the one I have heard most about! Thanks for the tip! :)
