MAC 190 Brush is a brush used for pplying foundation but i mainly use it for my setting powder on my under eye concealer because i prefer using the sponge for foundation . The brush gives a streaky finish for the foundation and doesnt look nicely blended and its fibers fall out alot

MAC 190 brush is the best foundation brush and my all-time favourite brush which does multi-functional activities in my routine makeup regime. I like mac 190 brush as it is a large round brush used for lightweight application and blending powders or pigments. It works great with mineralize products. This is the ideal brush for both cream and liquid foundations. The foundation brush is designed to create a smooth, even and flawless finish without streaks or patches. The brush works pretty well for applying foundation as well as contouring. It applies foundation so perfectly that all the fine lines and open pores disappear. MAC 190 brush blends the product into the skin really well without patchy look and gives a natural makeup finish. This is a 100% synthetic brushes using latest fibre technology. The bristles are dense and smooth that spreads the product evenly on the face. It comes in a good quality. However, it is not that easy to clean the brush. Though I clean it after every use, it leaves the residues of the foundation on the bristles. So we have to make an effort to clean the brush. The best part of the brush is that even after washing it, the bristles are still soft, smooth and does not get damaged. It adds value to the money though it is expensive. I strongly recommend this brush for a flawless makeup.

Blend and buff with perfection

affordable


I received MAC 190 Brush gift from my friend and I'm so glad she got it for me because I have actually wanted a brush like this for a while. A foundation brush designed to create a smooth, even finish and a flawless look. This is the classic shape of a foundation brush. It's big enough...but not too big. And it works well and blends in the foundation as long as you don't apply too much. It works well for liquid foundations and cream to powder etc.its very soft too. I like it and would recommend it if you like this style of the foundation brush. It's a classic and one I'm really glad to have in my collection.

Soft bristles

Rounded edges

Blends well

Covers imperfections


Many people I know swear by the MAC brand. It is definitely an expensive brand but they do have a great fan following. Now there when I purchase foundation or highlighters they don't always come with a nice brush. Even if they do the quality of the brush is strictly ok. That is when I thought of purchasing the MAC 190 brush. It is designed to create a flawless look and works with any MAC foundation. I do not yet own a MAC foundation but might in the future. So I used this brush with my regular foundation and it seems to do a good job. I could apply it evenly and get an airbrush finish too but the process took too long. It took a lot of time to blend. No doubt it did make a difference in the application of my makeup. It is a firm brush with rounded edges and works great with liquid or cream foundations. But it is not that fluffy so you might not like it if you use it with BB creams or mousse. It is not on the must-buy list because I don't find it worth the price. 1600 INR is way too much for the job it does.

DOES NOT BLEND any foundation just sits on your face!!!!
1.5/5

PROS


I have to agree with the others who don't care for this brush. I think I bought this long day before but I almost never pick it up to use it. Why? It's not the right shape or density for blending foundation onto the face. It's a flat synthetic brush, and the bristles aren't full, dense, soft, or fluffy. What works better to buff or blend foundation for an airbrushed look is one of those the synthetic complexion brushes. I will agree with who recommended Tarte's Bamboo Airbrush - that is a better shape. I also loved Kevyn Aucoin's foundation brush, but the cost of Aucoin's brush is a bit costly, which made it difficult for me to replace it. That brush was soft and densely packed and the point was nice for blending into small areas. Every time I used MAC's thin 190 brush, it will streak, so I ended up having to go over the skin with another tool such as a dry sponge or a damp Beauty Blender sponge, and for this reason alone I would never buy this particular brush again. MAC has other lovely brushes that I use for eye shadows. Everyone seems fond of this white goat hair brushes 239 and 217 which I use frequently; they are top sellers and deservedly so. But I would advise anyone not to buy 190 for foundation, or really for any purpose. In all the years I've never found a good use for it.

Good results

Blends well


I have bought the MAC 190 Brush to apply foundation. I have experienced it takes time to blend to the skin for an airbrush finish. The brush makes an enormous difference in the application of the makeup, and I consume considerably less amount of the product. MAC 190 Brush has rounded edges and is quite a sturdy and stable brush, which is excellent to be used if you love fluid and cream foundations. Also, MAC 190 Brush can be used for full coverage. If you are frequently wearing BB creams, mousse foundation or tinted moisturizer, then the brush is going to sit back in your drawer and will be not of much help for you. MAC 190 is quite fluffy and saves a lot of time compared to other brushes. I have washed it some n number of times till date, but still the bristles of the brush have stayed intact and soft. I would say it is a must-have MAC brush and its pricey too. Now I use it only on special occasions or any special functions.

Finding a perfect make-up brush is tiresome. It won’t last even for a few months. I bought MAC Foundation Brush 190. It is costly only like all other MAC products. But every good thing comes with a price that you have to pay. MAC Foundation Brush 190 is made with wooden handle and nickel-plated brass collet. The look is amazing and bristles used in this brush is of excellent quality and super soft. So no question of hurting our soft face. MAC Foundation Brush 190 provides even application of any make-up cream and leave our skin flawless. We can easily use this large full circular brush to apply bronzer, foundation, BB cream or any face powder. MAC brushes are hand made with fine and rich materials. If you can afford it go and buy MAC Foundation Brush 190.

MAC Foundation Brush 190 has some great bristles. The brush is evenly blend and made so that it gives everyone a smooth and a soft finish to what ever they apply. The brush is soft and does not hurt the sensitive skin. It works very well when applying foundation. The brush is easy to hold and spread well. The coverage will be great provided the foundation or the highlighter or the compact powder is well made. The brush is expensive but then that’s something you will have to accept and move on!! Its MAC and it cannot be cheap. The packing is just ok.
