I just threw mine away (after spending 15 min washing it) because it SHEDS every time I use it. :(
It's so funny how the SA's never mention their gift with purchase program! "Buy any blush or powder brush and get facial hair freeeeeeee"

i don't understand the negative reviews on this brush, i bought it and i absolutely LOVE IT! infact it was my very first mac brush ever. i never thought i would buy mac brushes because of how expensive they are. BUT of course this brush SHEDS LIKE CRAZY! Yes i mean what brush wouldn't shed at all? i don't mind the shedding at all because its not like as if the bristles would stick to my face or anything and it doesn't shed a lot at all, this is honestly one of the best powder brushes i've ever used, i decided to splurge my money and spend $70+ ( in singapore its this expensive) because i know its gonna last me a very long time, i love this because unlike some powder brushes the bristles are so fluffy and big but in the same time i can't get any product like pressed powder onto the brush! this has nicely packed bristles together that makes it easy to get my pressed powder products onto the brush and i also use this to bronze my face sometimes.
this brush doesn't have the softest bristles and can be a bit scratchy sometimes but that totally isn't a big problem for me, regardless, this is definitely one of the brushes i would recommend to people who are starting out their mac brush collection!

This one of my first MAC brushes, and I am thoroughly disappointed. In expected that the hefty price tag and brand name would mean superior performance, but not in this case! I have had better luck with my cheapy E.L.F. and EcoTools powder brushes!
First of all, the bristles seem to be loosely packed and flimsy, which makes it difficult to pick up product and control the application.
Second of all, this brush sheds like crazy. Every time I use it I have to pick a few little black hairs off of my face!
Third of all, this brush feels very scratchy and not soft at all! It feels like I am scratching my face with a broom.
Finally, this just does not seem to distribute or blend powders nicely at all. The application sucks.
Long story short? I will use it because I have it, but I would NOT buy again or suggest to anyone else. Total miss.

The Mac 150 was the first makeup brush I ever bought. I used to hate this brush- It would shed like crazy every time it touched my face. Now I have learned to wash it and condition it with regular hair conditioner, and this has left my Mac 150 unbelievably soft. No it is not a MUST have brush from Mac, but because I have it I do use it. I can apple powder all over the face, I pinch the tip to apply blush, or contour my cheekbones when I am feeling lazy. It picks up a nice amount of product. If I lost this brush would I re-buy it? No. But because I have it, I do enjoy using it, and I use it so I can feel like I got my money's worth for the product.

I have had this brush for years. I don't find it at all scratchy like some other reviewers have noted, nor does it shed, but it's just not the most versatile brush. It is definitely good for applying loose and pressed powder all over the face but is much too large for blush or anything that requires more precision, like contouring. There are definitely more versatile brushes out there for the price. However, like all MAC brushes I've had, it's top notch quality, and with a little care is still in excellent condition after all these years,

Wow, I can't believe MAC would put out a product this bad -- as others have noted, this brush sheds like crazy, leaving black hairs all over my face. What a waste of money.

I love most things MAC, this is a big exception though. One of the first MAC brushes I bought (& more expensive) but for the cost its not good. Just as the previous reviews have stated its scratchy & boy does it shed alot. It wasnt even like it started shedding after I had it for a while, I remember it almost immediately started when I had purchased it. I am also very delicate cleaning & maintaining my brushes & so far this is the only brush that sheds or has given way ever. I sadly replaced this brush's job with my real techniques one.

I've had this brush for over 5 years now and keep going back to in hope that it has somehow miraculously changed how shoddy it actually is for a MAC brush. Constant shedding and scratchy feeling, basically echoing all of the other reviews. I'd have avoided it if I had read these beforehand but only stumbled across these reviews thinking I had somehow purchased a faulty brush and wondered what others thought.

I bought this brush on the strength of MAC's reputation. But unfortunately this one does not live up tot hype. It sheds like crazy. I keep having to pick a hair off my face every time I use it. And it is SCRATCHY. Geez, for that kind of money, you would think it would not lose hair every time and scratch and irritate my face.
Unfortunately I misplaced my receipt, otherwise I would take it right back.
I won't buy this again and I am now leery of wasting any more money on these very pricey brushes.
That will teach me to buy something before reading reviews here. I would never have bought it if I had read the many reviews here from posters who had the exact same experience I did.

This is the only MAC brush that I find scratchy. And I have a ton of them! I purchased it at Macy's for $42.00, not incl shipping. I would say that I am spoiled being I also own the 187 (everyone knows how ridiculously awesome and soft that one is), but really I have EcoTools brushes that are a million times softer than this 150. It's so bad, I don't think I can swap it!
