Great brushes, I believe, can be found at a variety of price points. I’m always on the hunt for great ones, and I am here now to tell you about one that is not only super affordable, but is also an ubiquitous dupe for the MAC 217 brush. You know, that one crease/blending brush that so many proclaim as their favorite, self included.
While at Target recently I happened to peruse the cheapie brush section and stumbled upon the Studio Tools Crease Brush. At $1.99, I figured it was worth a try, and I’m glad I made that gamble.
It’s not as fluffy as the MAC 217 brush, which is the chief complaint amongst many about the famed brush. As you can see in the comparison photo, it’s somewhere in between the 217 and the 219, and more compact than the Keyvn Aucoin crease brush (which is possibly one of the softest brushes of all time).
Does the Studio Tools brush get the job done? Yes, and very well!
It blends a mean crease and outer corner without feeling terribly scratchy on your eye. You must head over to Target and get one – pronto!
