A short, round, flat-topped brush ideal for the smooth, easy application of foundations, creams, emulsions, and select powder products. Features a blend of natural bristles and synthetic fibres.
It sheds a bit, but I still like it. I use it for my highlighter or to apply powder under my eyes. It's so handy, also you can use it for applying concealer or even foundation...
One of my favorite associates for MAC sold me this when I went to blow some christmas cash last year. When used in a circular/buffing motion it smoothes out my MAC foundation so that it goes on smooth and natural-looking.
Its not as great as i would like it to be since it was so expensive. The brush does great work but sometimes i find myself in my magnifying mirror picking off a bristle or 2 off of my face. no bueno. Mac brushes should not shed. 3.5 stars for the brush. i hate shedding bristles.
I only use two brushes when it comes to applying products on my face and that is a contour brush and this brush. When used in a circular motion, this brush buffs my liquid foundation into a beautiful skin finish. I also use this to blend my highlight, blush, and bronzer. After these products are applied, I go back with my 130 brush and place my powder in the appropriate places.
One of my fave brushes to use with the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. I have dark spots and using this brush I just buff the concealer in and the spots magically dissapear! I call it my "magic wand" brush. Love it. I also use this brush to apply MAC Cremeblend Blush (Posey is my weapon of chose)...love how it's multi-functional.
LOVELOVELOVE this smaller duo fiber brush for concealing! its perfect size and I use the big Duo fiber brush for my foundation so I figured use this smaller one for concealing and its amazing! It gets the product in ever "nook and cranny" as i like to say! Especially when working on my mature skin clients! Its alot faster than the traditional flat concealer brush!
This is my favorite M.A.C brush, and even though it is one of their pricey brushes that M.A.C makes it is worth every penny in my eyes. I have used several other M.A.C brushes to apply foundation such as the 190 flat foundation, the 109 brush, which gets hairs everywhere and the brush gums up with foundation, and a large stippling brush, with makes it hard to blend in small spaces, and causes streaking. This is the perfect brush to apply foundation, with out streaking. This brush makes the heaviest foundation appear light and airbrushed effect
I use this blush everyday to apply my Posey cream blush. I would have never thought to use it for foundation. I am going to have to give it a try when I apply my makeup next time. Thank you for the tip.
I have been using the Mac stipple brush for a couple months now, and I love it! it helps me even out my foundation onto my face and it gives a light layer of foundation. Of course you dont want to look caked! This brush gets every corner/small areas on my face plus the bristles are super soft and does not irritate my face! It's on the pricey side but it's a great tool to invest in:)!
This is *the* perfect brush for applying foundation. I haven't tried it with pressed powder, only liquid foundation. The bristles are the perfect length and it is the right size and the density of it is just right. It blends the foundation perfectly and allows me to get the sides of my nose, around my eyebrows and under my eyes with ease. I love it!
