New Brush Alert! I can… barely…breathe. (Gasp) MAC…. just added (Gasp)…four new brushes to their permanent collection….WHEW! I will forever stand by the belief that a good makeup brush makes all the difference when it comes to a flawless makeup application! So when I found out that my beloved MAC decided to add four new brushes to the collection I lost it. Just thinking of new babies being added to the legacy that iconic staples like the 217 and 150 have created just warms my little makeup heart. For those who don’t get it, yes it’s that serious, and really is that big of a deal lol. So let’s get to it! Read on to find all the deets about the newest members of the MAC brush family! Eek!
The Large Flat Powder Brush is a hand-sculpted natural haired brush that is double-chiseled giving it a paddle-like shape. It is best for more sheer powder applications like translucent and pressed powders.
Sidenote: This is a bea-u-ti-ful brush! It has a very nice weight to it, and is super soft! Definitely drool-worthy.
The 137 is a natural haired brush perfect for applying powder to pretty much any area of the face. However its slim build makes it ideal for contouring and adding a bit of concentrated shape and/or color to more specific areas like the hollows of the cheeks and the “3” shape along the perimeter of the face.
As it was explained to me, the 221 brush is the perfect companion to the (wait for it)… 217. It was designed for blending more specific areas of the eye like in the transitional space of a cut crease. It is also made of soft natural fibers with a tapered tip. BUY THIS IN MULTIPLES!
The curved angeled brush is made of Natrafil, a new synthetic fiber. It mimics a natural haired brush but performs with the benefits of a synthetic brush. It is so unique becasue its curved slope helps it to fit snuggly against the eye. It also can be used with powders, gels and creams. It should be noted that the brush is substantially larger and wider than the 266 and 263, so if you are looking for a super thin and precise line this may not be your best option. It creates a thicker line than the aformentioned brushes.
So who else besides me wil be adding these babies to their collection/kits?
