I purchased this brush in 08 and I have yet to find one like it. The quality of this brush speaks for itself I have used this brush for applying everything from foundations to bronzers to blushes of all consistencies liquid, creme and powder I clean it with their brush cleaner and warm water and its like amazing how the bristles are white again ! MAC has a mini one of this but I tend to like the bigger size
This brush is really expensive, but it's definitely worth the money. It makes a flawless application of foundation, tinted moisturizer or really any product you are looking to put on. I find it also makes my coverage a little more sheer instead of full, but that's the way I like mine so I really do love this brush. If you are looking for more full coverage I wouldn't recomend it!
This is a really brilliant brush. At the time I purchased it, about six years ago, there were not suitable dupes on the market. The 187 is amazing for applying everything from foundation to blush to highlighter. I really like it with light, liquidy foundations as well as blushes that require a very soft application. Sonia Kashuk's version is the most similar one I've tried, but I do find it to be a little more flat at the end, and slightly more dense. I do use both quite regularly.
Nice if you have the money
It does a good job. I like it better than the classic foundation brush. I reach of this one far more than I reach for any other foundation brush I own. The only problem is that it sheds like crazy. At least one every time I use it.
FASTEST way to do your foudation !
This brush is great, a bit pricey. It gets the job done and fast!
You can't get into small places like around the nose or bottom eyes :/
You can always get a sigma brush as an alternative :)

This is by far my faveourite Mac face/Foundation brush ever!! The quality of this brush is just fabulous! Ive had this brush for about 3 years an use it regulary an its still in perfect condition.
Mostly people praise this brush for the use of applying airbrushed application of liquid foundation which is surely a universal fact.. I have enjoyed it as well. But undoubtedly i have enjoyed the application of blush more. specially when i need a slight flush of colour from a very pigmented blush or it helps reduce the shine or chunkiness from the glitter loaded blushes and helps the product to apply smoothly.. Thumbs up to Mac!
BEST FOUNDATION BRUSH EVER!
LOVE...... sums it up! Just pure LOVE! The most awesome foundation brush! Lets the skin looking airbrushed, have to say it works with waterbased foundations better though :) Deff a must have in your makeup belt, feels super nice on your skin and belnds amazingly! Like i said about the duo fiber 130 ( smaller version of this brush ) it gets into all the nooks and crannies on the skin, which is what gives it that airbrushed look! FLAWLESS ;)
Changed my life!
I don't no what i did with foundation before i got this brush, literally! It gives an amazing flawless finish specially with studio fix fluid blends effortlessly. I have the 188 brush too for my forehead, undereye and nose just to get into the nucks and crannys as the 187 is just abit too big for them areas of my face. I'd say their worth the money as the last a life time depending how much you use them and how you treat them. I have two of these brushes one for foundation and one for blush as it builds blush nicely x
Perfect Brush for Applying Foundation
This is definitely one of my staple brushes; it's perfect for applying liquid foundation. I dab foundation onto each cheek, my forehead, and chin, and then buff it in lightly with this brush. I only press hard enough that the shorter black bristles just touch my skin. After applying my foundation with this, my foundation lasts FOREVER and I seem to get more coverage out of it than if I just applied it with my fingers or a regular foundation brush. It looks amazing! I look airbrushed!
