This is a great brush for contouring and really getting into the hollows of the cheeks. I've tried several "fancier" brushes for contouring, like the 164 (which doesn't even have a page on here)...

I've had this brush for nearly 10 years. Own two of them in fact. They are still shedding strong. I loved them when I first got them because they were very versatile and were my go to brushes...

I bought this to use as a contour brush. I'm still perfecting my contour skills, but this seems like a pretty good brush. It can be used to apply blush, loose powder, bronzer, highlighter, many...

This is the only brush I can contour with and well. I used to use the Mac 168 but I stopped using it because the bristles were not dense enough and it was just too flimsy. The Mac 109 brush is a...

Contour, blush, highlight, can be done with only this brush, which I like! The hair is very denseable, can make strong pigments you want, only cons is it sheds sometimes

I love this brush, I've had it for about six years now. I use it to contour my cheeks, and it fits perfectly in that area. I also use it to put bronzer on other areas of the face like the forehead....
