MAC 187 Brush

One of my MANY obsessions is makeup brushes. Somehow out of my many brushes I haven't gotten any MAC brushes so I am starting to get a few one by one. My first one is the MAC 187:

The MAC website describes it as: A large full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments. Use to create soft layers or add textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres.

I really love my other brushes, but I have to say that this is the softest thing that has ever touched my face!

-So far there has been minimal shedding after several washes.
-I LOVE the feel on my skin!
-I've been using it for my mineral foundation and it provides a good lighter coverage.

-I don't love it with liquid foundation. I prefer typical foundation brushes like the MAC 190, but I haven't experimented a lot with it and liquid foundation so I might like it better after some playing with it.
-Price: This is one of the pricier brushes at $42.

Overall, I've found it to be a great brush for a lighter powder application.

Hi, I've gotten this 4 years ago and was super ouch for my wallet because I was still in high school and really wanted to collect mac brushes, it's still one of my favorite of the mac ones I've got buttttt Sigma's stippling brush that originally duped and named after the 187 is so much fuller, check it out :)
