sheds but I still love it
this brush sheds like mad but this is the best brush for applying make up lightly and avoiding cakey foundation

Terrible!!
I read so many reviews about how amazing this brush is so I decided to give it a try. I hated it from the first use! It didn't blend my liquid foundation at all and the bristles keep on falling every time I use the brush. So I decided to use it with powders and it didn't make a difference! The brush takes up to much product and it won't even spread on my face! I am extremely disappointed!

Horrible
When I switched to MAC, I bought one of these brushes because it was suggested to be the best one and the girl had used it on my face when I wanted to test the make up before I purchased it. Needless to say, within a few months I noticed that when I would apply my make up I would have bristles on my face from this brush! I absolutely would not recommend this to anyone.

Not up to par
Tags +poor quality; sheds; falls apart
I have had this brush in my kit for 6 months. While cleaning it, ALL of the bristles fell out of the ferrule!! I put them back in and finished cleaning. When it happened again (because I had forgotten when I used it again) the bristles fell out and fell apart. I've had some of
My MAC brushes for more than 14 years so I know this is unusual. What happened MAC??

Great brush! But one huge flaw!
This brush is perfect for light and full coverage liquid foundation application. But it gets two stars because it sheds fibers all over my face every time. Even when it was brand new. In my mind that makes it worth maybe $10, probably less. Very disappointed. MAC has never failed me before.

Pretty cool brush...
Ok, so I bought this brush say about 9 years ago in England and I never used it. So a week ago or so, I tried using it for foundation but it was very streaky. So I felt I didn't have a use for it until I watched a makeup tutorial on YouTube and the artist happened to use this brush. He explained how to use the brush. So I gave it a try yesterday and low & behold, my God, my foundation was lovely. OMG!!! I couldn't believe I had this brush all this while and didn't know how great it was. Although, I should have known cuz first off, it's a MAC brush and secondly, it was expensive. Hello..?? But like others have said, it does shed. I had bristles all over my face. Had to keep picking them off. Not cool. Didn't know stipppling brushes were so good.

can a brush really make such a difference?
yes! its amazing. i tried so many lower end brushes including piixiwoo, eco tools, sonia kashuk but let me save you some money by saying that nothing can match the results of this brush. i use the mac face and body foundation and this brush gives such an airbrushed, natural and barely there look. bristles are extremely soft and they do shed a little

Love Shedding?
Tags +Contouring, All over application, Highlighting, Blending, foundation
I love the way this brush applies and blends my makeup (pro long wear) but it does shed when not cleaned. I think the thing everyone needs to do is CLEAN the brush. When it gets gunked up it does not apply the makeup properly it gets streaky and the fibers do come out, when it is cleaned properly that does not happen. However be prepared to do a quick daily cleaning and weekly deep clean!

Must Have!

I absolutely looove this brush! I use it to apply my Liquid Foundation (Matchmaker SPF 15) and always received a flawless finish! I’ve tried many brushes so I must say, I find this one to be the BEST brush for an even and flawless beat face!

Excellent for lightweight foundation
Tags +All over application
I purchased this brush when I bought MAC's mineralize foundation and wow - the brush is amazing! It gives lighter, smoother and better overall coverage than a regular flat-sided brush which tends to soak up more product and not blend as well while keeping the surface light. Wow! I am impressed. If you prefer a heavier type coverage then this brush might not be for you. I am not a fan of anything heavy on my face, especially foundation, so if you like your foundation nice & light, then you should try this brush. As for the shedding issue, I have not had any problems. I use a light hand when applying my foundation and I clean my brushes gently, using MAC brush cleanser in the palm of my hand and a few drops of water towards the end for rinsing. I wipe them back & forth gently on a towel for drying and then reshape and lay flat to dry thoroughly.

Best brush ever!!!!
Tags +All over application, face
I have had this brush for over 8 years and still looks brand new!! It never sheds and the price has stayed the same for all these years. I have several Mac brushes and they all are in mint condition. I do have the Mac cleanser but I am bad and usually clean my brushes once a year but still all my brushes are in mint condition. Mac brushes are the best brushes ever. If you buy a cheap brush that last you only a month you will have wasted hundreds and even thousands of dollars. Mac brushes are worth. Ever penny!!!! Everyone please buy Mac brushes and other products are fantastic!

SHEDS!
Tags +do not purchase this brush
A $42 brush and it's shedding every single time I use it. I have to take time to pick all of the fibers off of my face after I apply my foundation - and it was sold to me to use with my foundation, so it's the appropriate brush. I clean it - it sheds. I use it on my face - it sheds. Horrible quality, and I've been buying MAC brushes for at least ten years.... no other brush has done this. Do some Quality Control!

Not good for liquids
Lots of ppl rave about this as a foundation brush and it just isn't great IMO. It works ok with powders. The black dye from the dark hairs leave a greenish tinge on the white hair after washing.

I never wanted to purchase this brush because the whole stippling concept seemed to time consuming. But now, I don't think I can live with out it! Easy to use and leaves my foundation looking perfect!

Sheds every time I used it :(
Mac products are the great! I was really excited to buy this brush and add it to my mac brushes collection. I have used this a couple of times for lightweight application of powder foundation all over my face. It shed a significant amount of hair each time I used it. I am really disappointed with this purchase!

Everybody told me this was supposedly a foundation brush but it just a blending and good for like powder. I was dissatisfied with this brush. IT SHREDS ALOT even on the first try. I wished I can get my money back.

best brush
Tags +All over application, Blending
I love this brush for personal and professional use. I have been using 187 ever since it came out. If you are a starter and don't know which brush to purchase, I would suggest you to buy this brush. Some people, complain about leaving streaks behind, its because the skin is dry. This brush blends beautiful, my clients never complaint about anything. I never had any issues using this brush on my face. Yes, it does shed a little but I have tried all the top branded brushes and seriously I haven't came across a single brush that doesn't shed. Over all a must have brush, the magic trick to get beautiful even skin is BLENDING. Use a good moisturizer, if you have dry skin, add some luster drops in your foundation and then use this brush.
