MAC 211 Pointed Liner Brush Review

Hi Friends,

I am back with a review here after three weeks. I was really busy with my in-laws who were very sweet and came down from Chennai to spend some precious time with us.  I was very happy to spend my New Year Eve with them.  I also did some makeup and beauty shopping with my mother-in-law.

I wanted to buy a gel eyeliner for a long time and I thought this would be the right time as I can consider it as a New Year gift from my hubby for me.  After reading IMBB reviews, I was convinced to buy the Blacktrack Fluidline from MAC as I don’t wear coloured eyeliners much, as I feel they don’t suit me.  I should start experimenting now.  I also read from IMBB recently that using an eyeshadow base will help eyeliners to stay longer.  As I have really oily lids, I picked up the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, thanks to IMBB.

Now, I wanted a brush for my Fluidline and came across MAC 211 brush which has been launched in the MAC Me Over Collection.The MUA told me that this is the best eyeliner brush from MAC and much better than the MAC 210 which I wanted.  I tried using this at the store and I could easily create the look that I wanted.  This brush is very pointed, so it is easy to draw a thin line at the inner corners of the eye and if you want a thick line, you should use the side of the brush.

I have been using this everyday and it is so awesome!!It is just the perfect brush for gel eyeliners.  I usually get a gap between my upper lash line and the line that I try to draw using my eyeliner, but this brush has solved that problem.  It has made the application so easy for me.  I am not a big fan of winged eyeliners, but I tried it using this brush and it came out very well.  I am not an expert in makeup, but even I am able to draw well with this.

This brush is very firm and I really love it.  I use MAC brush cleanser to clean my brushes, but even baby wipes are enough to clean this brush.

The bristles are not white.They are brown and black mixed together, so you don’t have to worry about it looking dirty.

One tip that the MUA gave me is that you should clean your eyeliner brushes immediately after use, else the dried product will damage the quality of the brush.  So, I immediately wipe the brush with a tissue after each use.

Pros of MAC 211 Pointed Liner Brush:

  • Very pointed and ideal for applying gel eyeliner.
  • A firm and dense brush.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Helps to create thin as well as thick lines.

Cons of MAC 211 Pointed Liner Brush:

No cons at all.


Definitely 5/5.

Would I Recommend MAC 211 Pointed Liner Brush?

Yes to those who love gel eyeliners, this is just a must-have.

P.S.:  This brush is always in demand.  I was almost in tears when I saw a girl who picked the last piece at the Malad branch and then the MUA told me that this was a limited edition and she doubted if they would get the stock again.  So, I called up the Andheri branch and asked them to hold one for me and I went there the very next day and bought it, yay, finally!
