  17. Lora

    I have lots of plans for it, but the first thing I’d do, it would be blush (:

    Gaah i want !! Mmm , i would definately first use the Brush for foundation to see how it holds up against a 187

  19. Kristen

    I would try it with liquid foundation first for sure.

  20. Ksenya

    apply cream blush.

  21. Sass

    Since I use my 188 most of the time to apply my Studio Fix Fluid I would try this brush out with my foundation. I hear that this brush applies easier than with the 188. I find the 188 easy to use. Whether I win this or not I’m getting the brush to test it with my fix.

  22. K7P*

  27. Marinka


  28. Jillian

    Definitely would use it for highlighting and achieving that perfect summer glow! =)

  29. I’m definitely most excited to use it for blush purposes, mostly cream. I feel like cream blushes are so hard to work with, but this brush looks so perfect and amazing for it!

  30. Alessia

    creamy blush :)

  31. Salvinia

    Highlighting and bronzer. I love the light application you can get with a duo-fibre brush, but the only one I have is a MAC 187 dupe and it’s just so huge! I have to put a hair band around the bristles so it’s narrow enought to fit on my face, haha! I’d love to have a smaller version.

  32. Lori

    I LOVE MAC – I would first like to purchase a new arsenal of the new MAC to the Beach line on Thursday and make my decision on how I would use the brush then, but since I’m leaving my comment today, I would use the brush as an applicator for my MAC tinted moisturizer. That stuff is awesome and I think this brush would help it glide on easy and streak free!

  33. I’d definitely try this for liquid foundation, cos I’m still looking for the perfect brush!

  34. Bea

    i would use it for blush first.

  48. Natalie

    I would try with all my 11 foundations and see what it does!
