Gosh this is a big brush! I don't have a MAC buffer brush so I can't compare, but as you can see, just from the handle itself, it's a chubby brush. This brush is synthetic, so it's definitely soft and not scratchy. The great thing about this is because of its size, it's perfect for buffing mineral foundation if you're in a hurry because it covers a lot of area quickly.
Let me just give a quick rundown of pros and cons:
- available locally for P750 (around $15)
- soft and not scratchy
- fluffy and dense
- minimal shedding
- the handle is so fat that I can't find a brush roll/belt/case that it can fit in so it's a challenge to store
I'd give it a 5 if it didn't shed a bit, as I noticed with Ellana brushes.
