I am hesitant to use brushes for liquid foundation, because they seem to soak up so much of it, and I hate to waste foundation. I'm also afraid of getting too much product on my face. But I...

This is one of those few brushes, I wish Mac had released before the 187 and the 188. This brush resembles a flat top foundation/buffer brush though with a smaller head. And of course, it is duo...

I swore I'd never buy anything from MAC because it seemed I could find a comparable dupe for every product I pined for...but not for this brush. So, I reluctantly went into my local MAC store with...
