This time I bought 5 MAC brushes and the Studio Fix foundation powder in NC25
I was originally planning to buy the Studio fix foundation and the mineralise skin finish in soft and gentle and after I got kinda of "cheated" into buying the Laura Mercier products I felt the silk foundation creme gave me the same "heavy coverage" I wanted to achieve with the Studio fix foundation and the highlighter in the LM palette gave me similar results as the mineralise skin finish so I decided to just get some more brushes instead ^__^
I've only used the brushes once to do my makeup so I don't have any detailed review on it yet but once I have used all my MAC brushes for a while I will do a more thorough review on them all
168 Large Angled Contour brush
I haven't used this brush yet for contouring but I have used it for highlighting and I think it works great. The angled brush makes it easy to do highlighting on the nose and under the eyes. I bought this brush because I don't have any angled brush like this and I think this brush would be great to do contour on the cheeks.
239 Eyeshadow brush
One of the most popular eyeshadow brush in MAC along with the 217
I think this brush is good for putting eyeshadow on the lids
Picks up colour really well just like the 217
224 Tapered blending brush
I bought this brush to blend eyeshadow but it didn't impress me that much from the first use because I didn't think it blended my eyeshadow very well but I will have a proper verdict later when I've used this brush a bit more
However I used this brush to contour my nose and omg I was sooo pleased!!! This is officially going to be my nose contouring brush! So even if this brush does not blend eyeshadow properly I definitely do not regret getting this because it's such a good brush for nose contouring!!
219 Pencil brush
I already have a pencil brush in my brush roll but I thought I will get a MAC one since I think the pencil brush is really useful! It's great to place eyeshadow on the tear duct or below the eyes.
212 Flat definer brush
This brush was recommended to me by my friend
It's a very interesting brush because it's like a the bigger, fatter version of an eyeliner brush
You can't really see from the picture unless I do a comparison photo with a normal eyeliner brush
It's great for smudging eyeliner or for placing thin line of eyeshadow as the eyeliner along the eye
It's also good for pushing gel eyeliner into the lash line where the "white gap" is
This is a great multipurpose brush and I think I will really like this brush too!
My mini MAC Brush collection
I don't think I'll be be adding anymore brushes to this any time soon until I visit the US, then I will be buying a lot of makeup and makeup tools because everything in this US is sooo much cheaper than Aus!
I will definitely do a thorough review on these brushes once I've used them a bit more =)
And last item from the haul - Studio fix compact foundation in NC25
