MAC Brushes Review

I have always said that it doesn’t matter how good your makeup is or how much money you have spent on a product, if you apply it with rubbish brushes. It doesn’t always mean having to spend loads of money to have high quality brushes. I have a real mix of different brand brushes and I like them all in different ways. But this review is all about MAC brushes.

I have been using MAC brushes for a long time now and there are some which I don’t think I could ever go without and some which I haven’t loved so much. It really is a mixed bag with these. I have to have a lot of brushes. I do a lot of prom, wedding, trail and just any special occasion makeup. It keeps me busy when I am out of my full-time job now that I have quite a large customer base. So, that means that while some are being cleaned and dried I need to have some more to use.

Now I have a lot of MAC brushes and I’m not going to go through each one individually because we would be here for days but I am going to mention some of my favourites and ones that I had problems with.

I’m going to start with one I use all the time, the MAC 187 Duo Fibre Blending Brush. I got this brush initially to apply foundation. A word of advice, don’t use this brush for that, it didn’t work that great. Now I use this to blend out my crème contour. One thing I noticed straight away when I started using this brush was how much it malted. I literally had to sit with my tweezers after I had used this brush and pick the hairs off my face from the brush.

I found this to be the same really for all of the MAC Duo Fibre range, the 188 and 130. All malted pretty bad. I found that when I had washed them quite a few times all the loose hairs went away and they were good to use.

One that I absolutely love is the MAC 217 brush. I use this brush for everything. I use it to apply concealer, blending, eyeshadow application and nose contouring. I have always thought this has been a great brush and I really don’t have any problems with it at all. Every time I get a big MAC haul in I buy a new one because I use them all the time.

Even though I do find that some of these brushes malt over excessively, after a few good washes they are perfect. They are all high quality; however I do find that alternatives could be found in cheaper ranges such as Real Techniques and these still have the same high quality.

As normal here on my blog I will leave links down below to where you can find these brushes. Also, if you have any other questions please feel free to leave them below and I will get right back to you!
