This MAC 196 Brush is great for all liquid foundations and it blends beautifully. I usually like any flat brushes to apply my foundation and powder because they give an even application flawlessly. This MAC brush is also a flat brush but with some nice modifications. It is of the perfect length and I am able to hold them perfectly well. This gives good control while applying. They are flat brushes with a slanted top. The brush is made up of soft synthetic fibers. They have dense and short bristles. This whole combination makes it really unique and great for working. The slant top is very good for applying and fading highlights, contours, and even concealers from time to time. Due to its slant top, it applies easily on a large and wider surface. The angle also gives a sharp and precise finish. The part I loved about this brush is that it blends the highlighter so flawlessly. It is perfect for around the eyes region. The dense fibers of the brush make blending a breeze. Also, it gives more control while applying. The brush is super soft and does not leave any streaks and yet they are sturdy enough to build the coverage. They are incredibly firm. While applying the brush feels like velvet. This is a must-have brush for applying foundation. The cost is, however, a little too expensive. This is by far the best brush that I have used and it does exactly what it says. You will not be disappointed with this product. I love how easy and fast my application is. It also works well with the cream foundation. I even like to use this to blend my concealer. This is always there in my make up bag. I would recommend to use this brush.

MAC 196 Brush is a unique brush which has round and short bristles. The bristles are flattened and slanted towards an end providing a precision in application and covers all the areas and corners of the face. The brush has soft, dense and synthetic bristles which are extremely soft on the face. MAC 196 Brush provides a luxurious and silky feel on the face. The brush has a steel grip and a grey body with the name of the brand written on it. The brush looks classy. The bristles do not fall out of the brush and has superior quality. The brush is sure to last till forever. The cleaning and maintenance of the brush is very easy. The brush has a broad and short handle which provides a good grip while using it. This brush is used to apply foundation. It can be used to apply any kind of foundation- liquid, powder, cream and gel. The brush blends the foundation perfectly and provides edge to edge contouring. The result is a super smooth and perfect makeup base. It does not leave any patches or lines on the makeup base. The brush might not blend liquid foundations too well and it needs a sponge to blend it afterwards. Once the foundation is set with this brush, it does not go anywhere nor does it form fine lines even after hours of makeup. The synthetic bristles of the brush do not soak up the product and thus prevent wastage of the foundation. They are not harsh on the face. MAC brushes are the best brushes and I would really recommend them. They are easy to use and maintain. These are long lasting brushes which provide you the value for money.

Mac 196 brush is a unique flat round brush which is slightly angular. It has soft synthetic bristles that help in easy application of any sort of foundation especially liquid. It slight angular shape helps in reaching even the difficult areas of the face. It gives my makeup a flawless finish. I don’t find any difficulty in washing it, the bristles are held on the handle very strongly. However even though it’s very expensive, if you are not that much into collecting all sorts of makeup products you can always find an affordable foundation brush it’ll work just fine.

Easy to clean on a cleansing pad


MAC 196 Brush is a foundation brush that works well with all kinds of formulations, Creamy, Loose powder and Compact foundations. It has synthetic bristles and a wooden handle. The top is slightly slanted to work the product on the sides of the nose, under the ear and on the chin. It doesn't soak up much product as the bristles are not natural. The dense hair give a flawless finish to the face. Even after hours of application, my foundation did not crease which otherwise does when applied with other foundation brushes. It is a normal sized brush so handling will surely not be a problem even for those who are new at using makeup brushes. Cleaning this brush is also very easy. I just add a blob of cleanser onto a makeup brushes cleaning pad and swirl this brush over it, rinse and hang it to dry.
