I got this in exchange for the 130 which I hated.This is a bigger version of the 116 which I love and I used this for powder and bronzer.Its not as soft as some of the other MAC brushes but I quite like that because it picks up more product.I love the long sleek handles of MAC brushes,very posh.Would buy again.

I've had this brush for 7 years and I have had no problem with the quality of the brush.

This is a larger blush brush so for me I can actually use it as a powder brush.

I use this when I want my cheeks to have a soft natural look

It's the ideal brush for blush application.Whether you have small face or wider face it would work. It's not very dense and not as soft as most of MAC brushes but it's still great.I use this only as blush brush and it packs on the right amount of color and distributes and blends it perfectly. I had very few sheddings in the beginning but after a couple of washes it's gone. Oh I love the long and slim handle too.

Not my favourite brush in my collection - I was expecting something a little denser and softer. I tend to use it now to dust powder lightly over my face, rather than for blusher (which was what I bought it for), and the 109 has become my blush brush of choice instead. I'm still pleased to own this though, it just didn't quite live up to expectations.

Not a bad brush, but I'm sure you can find plenty of other dupes made by cheaper brands that are the same quality. Not a lot of shedding with this brush and has the ability to apply blush well. Too small for a powder brush, in my opinion. The only downside is the price. Other than that, it's a great brush and a must-have in every collection.

This is too small to be a powder brush in my opinion so I only use it for blush (plus I already own the 150 which is essentially a bigger version of this and better suited for an all over face brush). The end of the bristles are tapered so it doesn't apply too much color at once and you have more control.

Got this brush a long time ago and just writing a review now. I've had it for maybe 5+ years and overtime, the shedding was really bad, but recently it eventually stopped. I find that its scratchy, however, it does apply blush very well. Don't need a lot of product. I wouldn't buy it again because it shedded a lot and is scratchy.

This brush is definitely a must-have brush.

I paid $300 TTD for this brush and I do not regret it at all. I actually went for another brush but that was out of stock so I picked up this one instead. I am so happy I did.

This brush is soft and fluffy and I use it for so many things I may have to purchase another. Its uses include:

1. Application of setting powder

2. Application of blush

3. Application of contour colour

4. Application of highlight colour

5. Buffing out the face to bring the look together.

This really is a great brush and I have no regrets with my purchase. I may pick up another soon!

I use this mainly for blush but it also is fab for powder and bronzer. It's super soft and sweeps blush on perfectly. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. I have had no issues with it shedding,it's easy to clean, and drys quickly in a day for me.

Well, the lady at the MAC counter recommended this brush to me for blush application and it works good for the application. But I have noticed that the bristles are really rough. :/
I have sensitive skin so this brush hurts my skin. It's scratchy and not as soft as some of my other MAC brushes. I'm not sure why it's like this, but I don't really like it. Unfortunately, I lost my receipt so I can't return or exchange it. I wanted to exchange it for the 168, I heard that one was better. After I washed it, the brush head started to splay out too. GREAT application for blush, terrible feel. :[
If you can withstand rougher brushes or don't have sensitive skin, I think this would have been a good brush for you. But not for me.
