GREAT FOR CREAM/liquid PRODUCTS
This brush works seamlessly with cream products either its cream color base or cream blushes. The concealer is the second best option for this brush, especially the under eye concealer, it gives nice effect under the eyes. Powder products won't really work with it because of its dual bristles and fairly small size. I have seen some people using it as a foundation brush, I mean it can be used without no doubt unless you have a small size face because of it's size it will take a long time to set and blend the foundation for normal to large face. I love using this brush for highlight as well, it works pretty good with skin finish formulas.
All in all, great tool and does everything it is designed to do. It does shed a little, a hair or two every now and then but it is common among natural bristles but the end results are worth buying this brush.
As a starter, if you are looking for an all rounder maybe you want to skip this yet. This brush can do a lot of things but its not your typical brush. For a advance users any doubt go ahead and invest in it.

Good foundation brush!
Tags +foundation, coverage builder, natural-looking effects, Versatile
I was at my local MAC counter when one of the girls recommended this brush for applying foundation and so I decided do give it a whirl. I'm glad I did!
This brush applies evenly and gradually, making it simple and effective for building however much coverage you desire. The brush is made well and I love duo fiber brushes for the more natural application of makeup it gives. Also, this saves me SO much product because I use so much less and get even better incredible outcomes than I do versus using any other application method (fingers, sponge, flat foundation brust, etc.)
The only beef I have with this brush is it sheds like no other, and not in the sense that entire chunks of bristles fall out, more like during application of makeup and washing it, the bristles seem to break off in annoying little pieces and get all over my face. I think I may have gotten my brush in a bad batch? I'm not sure. I contacted customer service and the lady was super nice and understanding and I am expecting a replacement for this brush soon. I am impressed with the service I received on that end for sure.
I know the quality of this brush is great and well-made, I think I may have just gotten unlucky with my first one. Hopefully the replacement will not have the shedding issue! But, don't let that stop you from giving this a try, it really is worth it and I promise you that you'll like it, too.

Tags +All over application
The 159 Duo Fibre Blush Brush is pure magik. It picks up the right amount of color (even bright, bright, bright colors!) and is easy to use for layering effects. Best blush brush ever! I'm buying another one for my mothers birthday. This is the best brush for a small face,highlighting, and blending liquid foundation. Awesomeness.

awesome little brush!
Tags +Contouring, Highlighting, Blending
The MUA at MAC recommended this brush for applying my foundation and I really needed one so I went ahead and got it! Let me tell you...I absolutely love it! It's the perfect size and it actually blends the product so well that I find I use less foundation. It's that good!! It did shed a couple of hairs the first time I used it but after that it's been fine! I think this is one you definitely need to have in your makeup bag!! And of course, I always use the brush cleaner by MAC to keep my brushes in top shape! I've had some of my MAC brushes for 10 yrs now and they still perform well!

good brush
I like this brush for applying blush. It is great for light applications of deep intense blushes. I gave it 3 stars because it sheds.

LOVE!
Tags +Contouring, All over application, Highlighting, Blending
I am absolutely in love with this brush! However, I do not use it as a blush brush. Lol. I will give it a try with a new cream blush that I just bought but I actually have been using it for primer and foundation. I love it! I use much less product when I use this brush which is AWESOME because seriously who likes to waste product?! I am actually using about half of the amount of product that I had to use with my other brushes. It's amazing. I will definitely be buying a few more to add to my kit :)

One of my faves

This brush is better for contouring and highlighting, It works kind of good for liquid foundation as well. But as I've said before, it's better for contouring, especially the cheek area as it fits in that area fairly well.

Face brushes are my favorite and when I saw this I knew I had to buy it. I think I actually need to get another one. It applies blush beautifully, but you can use it for pretty much any face product. Extremely happy with this brush!!

Amazing!
This brush is perfect for use with the mineralized blushes, especially the newer ones. It picks up and distributes product perfectly. A must have in your kit! It does shed a little but nothing like some other MAC brushes I have.
