I like this retractable lip brush and feel like the quality of the bristles are good. It is better than others I own and keep it as a staple in my collection.

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...

Very convenient for touching up lips. A must if you wear darker lip colors!

This is a great little brush for applying potted lipcolor or lipsticks that have come loose from the base of the tube. Picks up a decent amount of color, but when using it to apply a lipstick I...

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...

I like that the brush has a rounded/pointier tip to line and it's also stiff which is good for a lip brush. The packaging is so small! So of course, it's great for travel. I like that it's super...

Recently purchased the MAC 318 retractable lip brush at a CCO for around $14. I am not a big lip brush user, but I wanted something I could carry in my purse for those few times I need one. This...

I may be the minority, but this is one of the brushes that I don't really like. I really wish I had bought the 316. The brush itself does its job nicely, but I have a really strong grip when...

have this lip brush and also the covered one. I'm still on the fence about this one I love that it's small and flat. The covered one is longer and more pointed. Both are great for different uses,...

They say good things come in small packages, and this retractable lip brush is certainly small on packaging! It's a tiny lightweight black plastic tube which extends out to reveal the lip brush. ...

Hate hate this brush. It always folds up on me while Im doing lips. The silver one that the case becomes the handle is so much better.

I bought this lip brush on a whim and for personal use and not kit wise. It's gadgety but not super spectacular, mostly I like it because it's portable, applies my gloss evenly and I can bring...

I love that it's retractable. It's very convenient as nothing smears in my makeup bag. At first I was terrified as it felt really stiff, but once I started using it I was reassured that it's ok....
