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.
-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.
