No. 7 Blend & Contour Brush - MAC 217 Dupe

Hello My Lovelies!

Hope your week is going well, I’ve finished University for Easter now so expect a load more blog posts yay! :D

So, I am always looking for an excuse to go out and do some shopping. One thing I really want to expand more is my make-up brush collection. I have a wide range of Brushes from MAC, Body Shop, Real Technique, Avon and a few No. 7 Brushes, however, I really am lusting for some Sigma Brushes haha

I was in Boots a few weeks ago and did a big shop and received one of those £5 off No. 7 vouchers, so I decided I’d purchase a few items from their make up tool range. I was initially looking at some brushes and their ‘Eyelash Curler’, I have one but I really think I need to invest in a better one. I’d heard a lot about their brushes and decided to go for their ‘Blend and Contour’ Brush which with the voucher ended up being a grand total of … £2.75, how can you go wrong?!

 This brush has been around for a while now and it reminds me of the MAC 217 which is one of the most handy dandy brushes I own. Please excuse my dirty MAC 217 brush, I used it this morning and still haven’t washed it yet, I know, naughty naughty.

This No. 7 version is truly amazing; the bristles are really soft and blended my eyeshadow lovely. I love brushes like this as they are very versatile, it’s the perfect brush for your crease, your lids and for blending.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this brush. I cannot wait to get my hands on some more £5 off vouchers so I can go splurging on their entire range again :D

Let me know what you think :)

  2. Hi sophia

    Ive got the voucher too :D

    I wanna buy this brush, will i be able to use it for applying eyeshadow on
    or is it jus for blending?


    1. Heyy, thank you for your comment :)
      If you apply your eyeshadow with this brush it'll come out much softer than a flat shader brush like a MAC 239. If i'm in a hurry i use it to apply a colour to the whole of my lid and it comes out looking very sultry and effortless :D but this brush is the perfect crease brush if you did want to create some kind of smokey eye and darken up the crease area :) xx

  3. I've been looking for a blending brush for months and all i can find are smashbox or stila, it's so nice to see a more affordable brush! :) xx


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog, have a little read and leave a comment. Blogging has become such a huge part of my life and I am loving every single second of it.
