M·A·C Duo Fiber Face Brush #187
Thought it was useless until...
I bought this at a MAC counter because of NO REASON. I was looking for a foundation brush although not necessarily this one, especially because it was expensive. As days passed I thought what a huge mistake it was to buy it because it didn't seem like it was gonna do the job and the shape was just weird (silly me). I watched a tutorial online where the make up artists used this brush and the results were FLAWLESS. I decided to give it a try and I couldn't believe how long I waited to use it, I think i'm never going back to another foundation brush, and hey... you get what you pay! I gave it a 4 star rating because it does shed a bit too much.
When I was introduced to this brush several years ago, the makeup routine that I employed everyday changed forever and for the better. This brush alone was able to provide me airbrushed looking results *while* saving me product (and money) by allowing me to really only use the amount necessary. I love it so much I bought one for my mom. I clean it somewhat frequently with MAC brush cleaner and have had these brushes last for years!!!
I can't express enough how much I love this brush. While I was in the store, the woman helping me used this brush to apply different shades of the Face & Body foundation and I absolutely fell in love. I didn't buy the brush at that time because of the price, but when I went home and applied the makeup myself, I realized how much of a difference the brush made. I use it to apply the Face & Body liquid foundation and also my Studio Fix powder. It makes my face look so natural and smooth. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Great for light application
I've been using this as a bronzing brush and a highlighter brush with a shimmer brick. Its great because you can really build the coverage. I don't want too much bronzer in the winter, just enough to give a nice glow. I also don't want too much shimmer, so it works perfectly for that too. I just think it is slightly overpriced.
