I was curious to know some of your favorite MAC brushes...
I don't own any myself, but I was considering it..but I'm not sure if they are worth the price or what the most popular brushes are..
They are worth the price, I like the 187 and the 224.
138, 239, 217, 219, 224, 227, 165, 263...
138 is a MUST-HAVE tapered face brush that can be used for contouring, blush and all over powder.
I also have an extensive break-down of my "MUST-HAVE" brushes from MAC, including a thorough explanation of what shapes are important to purchase, types of hair brushes, and differences between machine cut, hand cut and uncut virgin hair brushes.

So far I own just one: the 217. So worth it, though, IMO.
I think that MAC brushes are TOTALLY worth the price. They make such a difference to application of products and last such a long time IMO. I own close to 30 MAC brushes, and I haven't had any problems with a single one. (This isn't to brag, but just to show that I feel they are worth the money). If you start slow you can build up?
The first brushes I bought were the 239, 222 and 187 and I love them =)

Thanks girls for all the input, I found it very helpful! It looks like I will be purchasing some MAC brushes very soon!!! Thanks again!
MAC brushes are a little pricey but your paying for the quality! their brushes are very soft and they last forever if you take good care of them. cleaning them when they are suppose to be cleaned and storing them correctly, they should last you forever.
my fave brushes are the 217, 130, 224, and 109, those are my go to brushes always! i have multiple of them just in case i forget to clean one. lol

Mine are definitely the 239, 217, 109 and 222. Those are very good ones to start with.
the 217 for sure!! I have two of them, and they are AMAZING multi-purpose brushes.

What MAC brush would you guys say that works best for Contouring your face?
I would say the 168 brush is great for contouring. I have it and the brush also works well for blush. It's amazing!
Thank you Danielle H. :)
I have the 130 MAC brush and I love it!!! But I use that for applying foundation. Thanks for the recommendation :)
I just purchased my first mac brush and it's perfect for my hooded almond eyes. It's the 217. :D
130, 224, 219, 109 and 217!
130 is the only Mac brush I own but I do plan on getting more!! My next one will be for contouring;)
