Favorite powder brush M.A.C has, if I had to choose only one for my face it would be this one. I love that it’s multi use as well, it’s large enough for all over setting powder, blush and bronzer....

This is my second favourite blush brush next to my Bobbi Brown blush brush. This brush picks up a lot of product so I wouldn't use it with an extremely pigmented brush. It can be a little scratchy...

Warning - Awful quality, worst shredding brush I ever owned! Look at the picture of the shredding I added. I bought this brush spring 2016 in Tallinn based on good reviews. I was looking for a...

I have the 116, which I love, love, love - but I started wearing Whole Lotta Love (which is my HG blush), and while the 116 is great with it, the blush is very pigmented and I have to be kind of...

It sheds. Everytime I use it, I have brush hair in my face. I don't like this brush even though I'm a beginner.

I love this brush. I use it for blusher as i prefer a natural blush look. It helps to gradually add color so i dont look like a clown. The bristles are soft and mine dont shed at all. I clean it...

I don't know why I didn't do a quick makeupalley review check while standing in MAC looking at brushes. Needless to say, I'd have not purchased it if I'd checked here first. I got home and tried...

I really wanted to like this brush. I normally like Mac's brushes though i do find them overpriced. This brush sheds like crazy. It's so hard to use because every time i powder my face it's covered...

I'm so torn between how many stars to give this. I decided on two for a couple of reasons. I think this a good blush brush, I had used it exclusively for three years, but it's not the best blush...

I bought this brush ages ago (probably over 10 years) and it's shed from day one. I don't often wear blush, so I have likely only used it as much as a daily blush wearer would have for 1-2 years. I...

I really like MAC brushes. 129 is a big fluffy brush made of natural hair. I use this one as an all over powder brush, and to blend my blush. I took away one lippy because I do get some shedding,...

My go to powder brush, it works for bronzer/blush but the small size works great for applying powder to my t zone. It barely sheds and stays soft after washing. I've had mine for 2 years. The MAC...

I probably would have given this 2 lippies but today I was washing this and I noticed by the ferrule a bronze color to the bristles. I thought maybe I had gotten some cream color on it so I tried...

It is basic blush brush which is nice and soft. It is of average size so will suit most people unless you have very small cheek area. The density of the bristles is average so you won't end up...
