ok brush
this brush has the same shape as the normal size but the bristles are not as dense, nor as soft. i have the original 129 but purchased the short handle one to go in my small makeup bag for my purse. so for that purpose it works great. i prefer this brush over the ones that you buy with the cover cap. it can touch up my powder as well as blush during the day

Perfect purse size
Tags +Blending, Contouring, All over application, Highlighting, blush and powder
According to the description above, the SH brush IS hand made and not machine made like the SE(Special Edition) brushes. My SH is exactly like my long handled version.
I think the reason some find the SH to not be as full is because they're stored horizontal in a purse rather than straight up like the full size handles are. This keeps them in newer condition than they would be straight up without a brush guard to prevent splay. But they really are identical if both are kept in guards.
The mineralized blushes tend not to last as long as the powder versions, at least, that's my experience. This brush and the blush and powder are handy to carry with me during longer days when touch ups are necessary.

Wonderful!

This brush is great for on the go touch ups as it comes in a travel pouch. I keep it in my purse for quick access to touch up Studio Fix or blush when needed. A definate must have.

OK Brush - But it Sheds!
Tags +All over application, Highlighting
I bought this brush expecting the quality products that I am used to with MAC. However, this brush sheds horribly. I've used it multiple times and it has left brush fibers on my face and sometimes long pieces come out of it. I'm assuming I paid for a brush that will eventually be thin and I'll have to get another. Save your money and try another brush.

not good!!!!!!!!!
Tags +All over application
i would not recommend buying this brush, though you may think that the sh and se brushes are the same as the regular brushes there not, the sh and se brushes are not hand crafted and instead made by machine, thus causing the bristles to not be as soft and fall out. spend the extra money and buy the regular brush.

Sheds like crazy
Tags +blush
I was looking for a brush that didn't shed so I turned to MAC, known for quality products. Bottom line - this brush does sheds horribly. I end up picking brush fibres off my face throughout the day.

This is the only brush I now use for my blush. It glides on perfectly and the brush is super soft.

Delightful little brush
Tags +Highlighting
I LOVE the control this brush allows when I apply my mineralized blushes. The last one I had was an off-brand and didnt allow me to put the blush exactly where I wanted it. I have small hands and appreciate the shortened handle. I see how I may have to buy a second one for my purse to apply my blot powder to my T-zone during the day. Kudos MAC!
