Makeup Wars: My Favorite Makeup Brush.

The Makeup Wars girls at at again. This time we are battling our favorite makeup brushes.

I didn't have to think hard about my favorite makeup brush because this one is a winner, hands down. My favorite makeup brush is the MAC 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush. I use it each and every day. I use it with creams, liquids, powders, blushes, highlighters and more. The MAC 187 brush does it all.

I wouldn't even know where to begin in how to describe a makeup brush; I just know how to use it. This is how MAC describes the brush:

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.

I use this brush all over my face with a liquid foundation for just the right amount of coverage.  I can use it with a cream blush for the ultimate airbrushed look. I can use it with concealer to stipple on a bit more coverage where I need it.  I can use it with a powder blush for again, an airbrushed look. I use it with all over face powder to give either a sheer or all over wash of color. This time of year, I use it with bronzer all over my face to deepen my face shade a bit. Of course I do use the 187 for what it was made for, with a light dusting of finishing powder to just finish up and soften my look.

Right now I have three of the 187 brushes. I think I had five or six of them at one point, but I am pretty sure my sister and my daughter have snagged one or two from me because right now I only have three in rotation.  I keep one for liquids, one for creams and concealers, and one for powders. I guess you really only need three. I do anyway. You really just need one to be sold on it.

The MAC 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush retails for $42.00 at all MAC locations and maccosmetics.com. Be sure to check out the rest of the favorite brushes in our Makeup War.

Fabulous choice! I know a lot of people would definitely agree!
Looks like a great choice for a flawless foundation application!
Seems this MAC brush has a high vote as favorite brush.
This and the 188 are winners for me too!
Love this brush! It's one of my standbys...use it every day. Great choice!
Thanks, Brooke! I know it is a favorite among many.
Krystle - it is awesome for foundation, and so much more as I pointed out. Love this one!
Yes it does, Coco. It's a good one.
Love 'em both, Marcia!
I'm in great company, again. Thanks Nancy!
This does look like a great all-purpose brush! I will add this to my running MAC wishlist on my phone! :)
MAC brushes are amazing! :)


Well you know my thoughts on this brush! Couldn't live without it! I love the 188 as well.
This is one of my favorite kind of brushes too, but I bought a "dupe" or similar brush like it from Ulta. I think they are synthetic hairs but it works well for me.
Fab brush - the good ole skunk!
This is such a fun series. I really like ready about all these makeup brushes.
Duofiber brushes are awesome.
Emma - I have seen many similar brushes and the concept is great. The different fibers (or hair) makes for the softest look.
Gloria - Do you have this brush too?
I am so glad to hear that you like reading our fun series, Diana. That is what it is all about!
They are my favorite Phyrra!
This is one of my long standing favorites as well.
I have this too and I love it!!
It is such a great brush, Carleen. How did I know so many of you girls would have and love this brush too? Ha!
Yay- glad to hear it Eugenia.
