Like many other reviewers, I purchased this brush at my local CCO (this review is a bit delayed; I think I purchased it in April 2010). I feel that it has been discontinued due to the fact that there are better buffing/kabuki brushes available from MAC that you can use to apply or buff powder/mineral makeup (such as the MAC 181 [which i prefer] or the 182). This is a nice brush to have but it is …Read more

I like this brush for powders or minerals. It makes application flawless. A little pricey but worth it.

I bought this brush at a CCO. It smelled like a dead rat had died in it. Simply disgusting. I had washed it with brush cleaner no less than 10 times.
I looked up on youtube and Enkore had a deodorizing solution video. Vinegar, Fabric Softner, Water and Baking Soda. 5 min later, MIRACLE! Smells fresh, the dead rat has left.

The brush is good quality, doesn't shed. I use it for …

I bought this brush from the CCO, after losing my first 183. The brush is very soft and versatile. It can be used to apply powders, or liquid foundation., One thing I would recommend is to seriously wash this in baby shampoo before use, It shed when I washed it at first then I didn't have shedding problems after that. I also kept the case which I do for most of my kabuki brushes so the …Read more

I've had the 183 brush for months and I am VERY pleased with it. It is made of wonderfully soft goat hair. It is my HG for powder application!

My technique for use is to get the product (I use L'Oreal's True Match Super Blendable Powder in C6) on the brush and "pound" into the face in a "stippling" motion to set my foundation; I'm buffing it …

so the 183 is the softer, less dense version of the 180( holy grail for liquid foundation). i bought two 183's when i found out the 180 as no longer available. to be honest i have not used it that much until recently because my 180 is superior to it. i recently
re-discovered my 183 because i have switched to Bobbi Brown's new skin foundation( it's so weightless and natural …

I, too, purchased this brush at a CCO (and that's why it gets a good price rating). I was never able to apply Studio Fix Powder Foundation before getting this brush, so I would highly recommend it for that use because it gives perfect coverage. However, this thing sheds like a mother!! So watch out for those stray hairs on your face.

This is one of my favorite brushes from MAC. It is limited edition but some stores may still carry this, as well as the CCO's. It is super soft and it is amazing at buffing out powder foundation. It gives me an air brushed look. I use it with my MAC Studio Fix Powder. It does shed a bit, but not as much as my 109 or 187. And it did start to splay, but to fix that, I just keep it in …Read more

This is LE and the only place you may find it is at a CCO. I had this brush for over 2 years and it really has splayed and has always shed. This was made to buff in MMU which it does an okay job. The hair is white goat hair and it has discolored slightly which is to be expected. I prefer the 182 brush from MAC - it had kept it's shape better and I purchased both at the same time. I prefer …Read more
