Not impressed and depressing to think how much I paid for it. I occasionally use to apply blush but that's about it. I don't feel it looks any different than when I apply with regular brush.
I have coveted this brush for quite sometime. All the rave reviews her and on YouTube really lured me in. I am sad to say that I am in the minority here and that this brush is terrible. I purchased it this past Saturday, used it on Sunday only to find that upon using it that there were tons of fibers all over my face. The brush sheds like crazy. So I returned it thinking I may have gotten a defective one only to use the second one and have it shed worse than the first. This brush is not inexpensive but it performs like a cheap one and even feels cheap when holding it. I don't even like the way it applies my makeup. It is too light and splotchy. Definitely not the airbrush effect I was aiming for. It's sad to say that my ELF stippling brush that I purchased for 2.99 works better than this.
I think this brush is overrated. It isn't bad but it is nothing phenomenol either. It gives an OK finish, not flawless or airbrushed. I also think that it is a bit too big and cannot fit in the smaller areas of the face.
It's really good for a flawless foundation but kinda leaves it looking streaky
I have been using this brush religiously every day for 7 YEARS and I have only just had to buy another one! I wash it weekly, I've tried other brushes such as Real Techniques, but I just end up coming back to this! Flawless finish, 100% recommended! 7 years it lasted me!
This brush is pretty much perfect. I use it every single day. Powder, foundation, blush, you name it... I've probably used my 187 for it. Yes, its pricey but worth every single penny. I've had mine for years and it's still soft, sturdy and kept its shape. I've tried dupes of this brush and some were quite good but nothing I've tried matches the quality of this brush. It applies liquid and cream foundation like a dream. The beauty blender is the only thing that comes close but the 187 will give you better coverage and allows you to build coverage without it looking cakey. It's a must have for medium/full coverage liquid and cream foundations.
This is my first Mac face brush and the most expensive face brush I own. I bought it 6 yrs ago,yes it does sheds but very rare considering I've had this brush for a long time it doesn't bother much. I've applied liquid foundation,face powder,cream blush,anything,you name it I tried it but now I mostly use it to apply powder blush and translucent powder to set my makeup. I will not buy another one since there's more affordable makeup brushes now like real technique brushes. But it's not a brush I regret buying. if you want quality brush and have the extra money to spend go ahead and splurge on this one =)
I use this brush to apply my pigmented blushes like MAC's Fleur Power. I also use it to apply my setting powder sometimes because I adore a matte finish but sometimes I can go overboard and apply too much so this helps me. I have never used this to apply foundation but I don't think I would like it. Would I buy it again? Nope, my elf stippling brush is just as good. I think this brush is too overrated.
Love it soooo much!!! Sooo soft and fluffy and well AMAZING
I love this brush! I fell in love with it the first time my makeup artist used this on me.
I have never tried it to put foundation on with it, I only use it for my MSF's. It picks up just the right amount of powder and blends the product in beautifully.
