Velvet Kiss Brush
Tags +Creamy, airbrushed, dense bristles, soft
I Love Love Love this brush.
This is the first MAC brush I ever used (I've since owned many), when I was initially buying my Studio Fix the artist gave me this to use to apply it. This is my favourite foundation brush. I love how dense it is and it's so soft it's like being velvet kissed by a brush when you're using it.
No brushstrokes. It gives a perfect airbrushed finish and it gives you fuller coverage with less foundation.
I also love the weight go the handle, it's really nicely weighted and give you precision and makes it easy to use.

Disappointing
This brush sheds hairs all over your face during application and in the product pan during use. Would not recommend. Very frustrating.

Horrible
This is one of the worst brushes I've ever purchased. It leaves brush hairs in every spot it touches. Every. Single. Time. Lots of little pieces that are difficult to get off. Absolutely hate this brush.

not what i expected..
I really wanted to like this item but the more I use it the less i like it. The bristels are falling and when I use it for foundation I can't take the little hairs our, I wouldnt purchase this again because its just way to expensive for me to give it another shot.

Who'd a thunk?
Tags +All over application
I was ordering the pro long wear foundation and asked the MAC consultant how to apply it. She suggested this brush. I was doubtful because I have always used cosmetic sponges, but it is fabulous! Perfectly even application and it uses less product than a sponge. Love it!

Best Brush EVER!!!
Tags +All over application, everyday
I got my makeup done a few weeks ago with this brush and loved it!! This brush gives you an airbrush look and blends very well. I use this to blend my foundation, BB Cream and sometimes my concealer. I don't use as much a foundation either, It spreads really well without leaving any lines. If I could change one thing it would be to make the diameter of the brush just a little bit wider. Other than that I highly recommend it!!
I won't use another brush. :)

Favorite foundation brush

I have clear skin , but whenever I put on foundation I felt like there were streaks and it never looked 'airbrushed'. I found this brush and it will always be my favorite of all time <3 5 out of 5

Not in love... yet.
Tags +Blending, getting into small areas of the face
I bought this brush today because I watched a million videos and read equally as many reviews on it, but I have to say I am just not in love with this, as I stated above, yet. Maybe its because I have been applying foundation with an angled sponge for so long and I am just not used to it yet. I played with it at my local MAC counter and didn't really like it but bought it anyway and thought I would get it home and try it out for a couple of weeks. If I don't love it by then, I will be returning it. Its too steep a price tag for something less than perfect.

Everyday Foundation Necessity
I love this brush and I use it daily to stipple and apply my foundation. I wash it every week and I've experienced very little shedding. I have a SE glittered travel size one as well.

I did not love what it did to my foundation, but it is so great for contour or highlighter application. I have experienced some shedding with this brush, but nothing extreme. It's a good solid brush to own.

Not exactly sure what to use this for
Too small for foundations and doesn't work great. Meh for powders. Black dye from dark hairs stain the white hairs green even after several washings.

Magic eraser
Tags +All over application
The #130 brush is the best brush to apply numerous formulas of foundation and is the best selling brush at my local MAC counter. Nothing compares!! Soft, dense, shed proof!!! It is not everyday a brush truly works magic but this one erases everything without a pile- up of product!!!! It's the best

I use this brush for Cream Blush application. So smooth and so gentle on the skin. Perfect size for the apple of your cheek. Love this brush! Been using it for a few months, it cleans super easy.

Which brush do you consider better for applying liquid foundation with? This 130 Short Duo Fibre or 187 Duo Fibre brush?
Thank you!
