I use this brush for my studio fix powder for sheer coverage, for blush to create a sheer coverage, its good for cream blushes as well. People need to start using this brush correctly instead of complaining.
I ummed and erred for this product i needed a new foundation brush but i heard you could only use it for powder? Anyway i ordered it and have been using it ever since, at first some bristles of the brush atchully came on my face when i applied with foundation, but after 2 days of using it, it thickened up and no more bristles and its brilliant i use for powder aswell love this its easy to buffer all make up in and is way better than normal foundation brushes sponges fingers and yeh!!
When/if I decide to wear foundation, I apply it with this brush. I get the brush damp so it gives a sheer coverage. If you wash your brushes regularly, they should last you a really long time. The MAC 187 is $42 but Sigma makes a similar brush called Duo Fibre F50 for $18. I highly recommend the Sigma one because of the price, they are pretty much the same brush. I wasn't paid to write this review, just thought others would like to know where to get a cheaper brush. I bought the MAC one, and wish I knew about Sigma before I dropped $42 on a single brush. :)
I'm so on the fence about this brush. I wanted to buy a stippling brush to apply my liquid foundation as I'd heard and read so many great things about that form of application. After some research I decided to buy the MAC 187. The positive things about this brush are that it is really soft and it does apply a nice amount of foundation onto the skin, not too much. The negative things about this brush are that it sheds black hairs continuously when I apply my makeup, it's extremely pricey, and I end up having to use it in a buffing motion after I have stippled with it to get the desired flawless, streak-free look. I achieve a similar, if not more, flawless finish with my Clinique foundation brush, which is almost half the price. Therefore, I'd say shop around before you take the plunge and purchase this brush.
I have to agree with the reviewers who did not see the hype in this brush. I thought it made my makeup look horrible. At first I thought it was just my skin until I tried another brush & realized.. it was the brush. Not to mention after the first wash the brush became a hot mess. For the price I paid for this brush it shouldn't have became that way after one use, especially using MAC cleanser. It sheds like a dog also.
I dont get the hype of this brush... it sheds everytime I use it....
I LOVE this baby!It applies my foundation so flawlessly!It does shed but like 1-2 times a week but not to the extend where there's hair all over your face.I really hate when that happens & this brush doesnt do that at all.Ive had it for over a year & still looks brand new!I highly recommend it if your looking for a good foundation brush.Its multipurpose aswell!You can use it for blush,highlighting & powder.So if you think of it,its actually cheap ;)
Great to use with liquid foundation. Hides acne blemishes well. I look like i have clear skin without looking cakey.
This brush works great with almost all foundations I have used. It helps to put just the right amount of product so that it does not feel heavy on your skin. I will for sure repurchase although it looks like it will last for many many years.
I was a little weary of buying this because of the price, it was around $50 and I have never spent that much on a single brush. But boy is it worth it, I use MAC studio fix fluid and I literally have to use one little pump of foundation for it. I just dab it on my skin and buff it in and I get the most flawless and even coverage I have ever gotten from a foundation brush!! It is also a very soft brush and doesn't shed that much, only in the beginning but this can be prevented by washing and conditioning the brush before using it. It picks up powder just as well as it does with liquid. Such even and beautiful coverage, I swear by this brush. Definitely a must-have in my makeup bag.
