A Must Have Brush
Tags +powder, cream, contour, highlight, blush, precise, soft
I can't say enough good things about this brush. I recently purchased it from the MAC store, used and recommended by the manager who applied my makeup. This brush can be used for a variety of things. It is great for all over powder application, contour, highlight and blush. The angled shape is great for a precise application of the previously mentioned contour, highlight and blush. This brush can even be used for liquids and creams, as it creates a full coverage airbrushed effect. This brush is so amazingly soft, picking up the perfect amount of product and applying in all the right places. If you don't have this brush you need to purchase immediately!

Does not hold power products
Tags +nothing
I really had high hopes for this brush, but I'm just not impressed. I feel like it's very difficult to pick up powder products. I find myself swirling this brush over and over again into my bronzer/blush, and it's just not picking up anything! I've since switched to the 163 brush, then buffing it out with my 150 brush, and I love the results. If I could return this brush, I would.

Excellent for applying blush or bronzer
Tags +Blending, Contouring
I recently purchased this brush to apply pink blush to the apples of my cheeks and for contouring. It works beautifully. I can't say enough good things about this brush and the quality & craftsmanship of all the MAC brushes. I clean this brush after each use and I expect it to last me for many years.

Perfect for Sculpting
Tags +Contouring, All over application
I use this whenever I am highlighting and sculpting my face. I typically us this just for my matte sculpt powder on my cheeks, cranial indents, hairline, and nose. The angle and consistency of the brush makes things blend easily and applies just the right about with a quick swipe over your product of choice. Like all Mac brushes, its very sturdy and can outdo many of the high end competitors.

softest and very easy to use
My favorite brush to apply blush or to apply bronzer to blend out the contour. I use this brush everytime I apply makeup.

The best contour brush I've ever known!

This brush makes contouring easily. I also use it for highlighting and blending (thinking of getting other brushes like this one in the future). The definition it brings out is astounding. Definitely recommend this brush

Mixed thoughts
Tags +Contouring
I like this brush, it's great for precise contour line but I prefer 109 over this brush. It doesn't work well with mineral bronzer. Other than that, it's obviously high quality and extremely soft. It is great for Mac brushes collection but for starters, I would suggest to use 109 for contour.

Beautiful!
Tags +Blending, All over application, Highlighting, blush/bronzing
This brush is so beautiful. It's super soft. I use it for blush & bronzing. It picks up plenty of powder and applies it on well. It can be use for contouring all over the face, but! I noticed that the brush is too soft and big for contouring on the nose. I prefer a dense and smaller brush for contouring for that area (nose & eyes). Overall, I don't regret buying this brush. I use it everyday and it is worth thirty-five dollars. Yes, I recommend it.

OK brush
Tags +Contouring
I'm not sure what the hype is about regarding this brush. It's just ok. I use it for contouring as suggested by the MA but I find myself reaching for others more. Plus this sheds a tiny bit.

Great Buy
Tags +Contouring, Highlighting
I really love this brush and wear it right out. It's the perfect sculpting tool. I mostly use it for contouring with bronzer but it works great for blush and highlight as well. I haven't had any shedding problems. A brush you will constantly be reaching for.

Great Multitasker!
Tags +Contouring, powder blush
I own this brush, and use it for contouring and powder blush application on the cheeks. It's great, evenly applies makeup. It's soft, so it won't be harsh on skin.
Worth the money, since it has a life expectancy of up to 10 years according to a MAC artist I spoke with at store.
Recommend to anyone!

Soft Blushing and Contour
Tags +Contouring, blush
This is a very soft brush that is well made. I have confidence that it will last me a very long time. I use this for blush as well as contour application and it works very well for both although it may be too small for some to consider regular use as a blush brush.
