I purchased the #134 brush about a year ago. I use it everyday to apply powder foundation (LG Balance n Brighten). 134 does a good job of laying down a light to medium amount of foundation evenly and with a natural look. The bristles are soft and fluffy, but with enough oomph to grab and apply powder foundation.
My complaint is that my relatively new MAC brushes are shedding, #134 included. Everytime I use #134 I end up with 3-4 dark bristles on my face. For the money, I am disappointed that my MAC brushes have not performed better or longer. From reading other reviews, I see that I am not alone in the shedding experience. I don't plan on repurchasing.
I love love love this brush... it is a bit expensive but its worth it.. i use it for my powder and bronzer it turns out flawless. i have the mac stubby bronzer brush that little short one.. i forget the number..its a K word brush lol this one is way softer than that one and it does a better job!!! this brush is waaaay better than 129 that came in a brush seasonal kit i got... thats all i gotta say =)
I love this brush.
I bought it awhile ago and I love using it with all my powders.
It is one of the softest brushes I own. I generally would not spend so much on ONE brush but it was beautiful and i had to have it. I already own the 180,182,187,188 but I am a sucker for powder brushes i can't seem to have enough. I thought about getting another just for my shimmery powders and msfs.
Please note that I don't plan on buying this again, but put this since I know it is discouraging to see items with low buy-again percentages. Anyway, I just got this brush yesterday, I had went to get the 182 for my Barbie bp's, but my MA friends recommended this instead since for me b/c it is more versatile. First off, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea of paying $52 for a brush, but I realized I could use this for bp's, msf, meteorites and regular face powder. Plus, this is the softest brush I have ever put on my face. It is a paddle shaped brush, and it is very smooth and easy to work with. You don't have to buff this like with the 187 or the 182 and it deposits alot of product but it blends easily. I would recommend this brush to anyone who needs a brush for the products I mentioned. This is much better than MAC's other powder brushes because of the size and the softness, it's perfection.
