Hello dearies! It's time for another product review. I haven't done any reviews in a while so it's time I did one. Today, it will be about the MAC 109 brush.

Use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products. Softly rounded dome tip delivers just enough colour; smoothly blends colour into the face. Of natural fibres.
This is one of the most highly rated MAC brushes ever. Although it was meant as a contour brush, it became famous as a foundation brush. So, when a brand new piece went up for sale in GirlTalk a few months ago, I jumped at the chance to buy it. Now it's mine! Bwahahahaha! LOL.
I was surprised when I saw the actual size of the brush. It was really small actually. The first time I washed it, there was no shedding. When I finally used it to apply foundation, I was in love! The finish was much better. It gave a very clean, even finish that surpasses the regular foundation brush. A note though, this brush gives a heavier coverage so you might not want to use this with a full coverage foundation unless you want even extra coverage.
So here are the pros and cons:
- gives a clean finish to foundation
- Although this doesn't shed when I wash it, it sheds when used on the face. Weird I know.
- Not available locally
Unfortunately, here in the Philippines, this brush is not part of the permanent collection (why?) and is only available as a limited edition item :( MAC should make this part of the permanent collection, it really is a very good product to try.
I'd give it a 5 if it didn't shed :(
Just to show you an idea on how its finish, I'll leave you with a before and after picture of my friend Marie, during her recital. I used Revlon Custom Creations on her applied with a MAC 109 brush. I didn't apply lipstick on her because she's a bassoon player and lipstick will hinder her playing.
Have a nice day!
