A perfectly serviceable retractable lip brush to keep in the bag in order to reapply/correct darker lipsticks. Wouldn't use it in my vanity though since I far prefer Zoeva's square edged lip brush...

This review is for the 318 lip brush (not retractable). I expect a lot more from MAC as the hairs on this brush splay out and won't go back to the flat position. This makes applying product...

The bristles are soft to touch, yet it is firm and picks up a good amount of colour. The retractable design makes it very travel-friendly. The top isn't completely covered, but it doesn't bother...

This brush is a perfect brush for keeping in your purse for those persistent lipstick touch-ups throughout the day! The size of the brush is great and it's not too fluffy. Easy to clean and does...

The USP with this one is its retractable head since it overcomes a common problem with the closing mechanisms of rival portable brushes, i.e. a tendency to trap hair and ultimately distort the...

Love this brush. I use it with my pigmented lipsticks that need precise application and it does the job perfectly. It's the best size to pop into my handbag on a night out so I can touch up as...

I love this brush, and actually purchased it specifically for use with concealer (Pro Longwear). I went to the MAC counter to look at the 194 concealer brush to cover hyperpigmentation spots, and...

Great lip brush. I love that it's retractable and sleek, makes carrying it really easy. At first the bristles were really stiff, but after I cleaned it they softened up. I like the shape of the...
