MAC is a much-loved brand for most of us and their products are such quality products which is incomparable. My aunt who runs a beauty parlour uses only products from MAC and she says this product MAC Small Contour Brush 109 is no exception. Its bristles are made of synthetic fibre and thus it lasts for a long time. Though it is on the expensive side, it's worth the price when compared to the quality and the way it works. My aunt says she uses it as multi-purpose brush and use it for applying powder foundation or blush or as a highlight and for contouring. She says it does not shed its bristles even after washing and it gets dried off soon. This powder picks up the powder product neatly. This is such a soft brush and does not irritate the skin. My aunt says that this brush works well with both cream and liquid foundations and for both apply and blend out all sorts of products. Though the product is a bit pricy my aunt loves to use this product since she is particular that only quality products need to be used on her clients. She never sacrifices anything for the quality of the product. It's worth the money and its lasting power is also to be considered while we purchase this. It's a good investment and a quality product for the makeup kit.

Cruelty free

Precise application

Picks right amount of product


MAC brushes have always been my favorite. They are made up of synthetic fibers and are cruelty free. The bristles are so soft and smooth that they do not poke or prick the face while applying the make up. For a long time I was trying to find a perfect contouring brush for my face. While recently searching on an online portal for brushes I read about this MAC Small Contour Brush 109. There were quite a lot of positive reviews about this brush. Being a MAC product I could not doubt it further and bought it for myself. This contour brush is no less as compared to all other brushes from MAC. It is hand made and sculpted with a wooden handle and it gives an awesome grip for precise application. The ferrules are made up of Nickel coated brass that hold the synthetic fibres together. This brush can be used for contouring and also for applying Blush on the cheeks. It can also be used for highlighting the best features on the face.

I love using brushes to apply blush as they gently accentuate the face making the cheek area look gorgeous. I have always loved Mac products and their brushes are definitely worth buying. Hence this time around when I needed a brush I decided to invest in the Mac 109 contour brush. The product comes packaged in a cellophane pouch , the brush is handmade and the fibers are dense. The brush is nice and long and the bristles looked promising. The brush is dome shaped . The brush is purely a contour brush which can be used to contour the cheeks, forehead and jaw line. I used the brush to apply the blush and honestly I did not like how the brush felt on my skin. I found the bristles scratching my skin and this was honestly a big disappointment for me. The bristles unabled picking up the product effectively and with precision. The brush can be used to apply powder or liquid makeup. The brush does not lose shape on washing and the bristles do not shed alot.

The packaging of this small contour brush looks very simple in comparison to its price. MAC, being a luxury brand, should consider the packaging of this small contour brush as well. As per to the brand’s claims, the hairs of the brush are natural and are being dyed in black for uniformity. It is a well-made balanced brush and made up of natural goat hair. It is perfect for contouring purpose and it is effective too. Even if you wash this brush, it won’t shed nor the bristles will become hard. It gives a precise and controlled application due to its small brush head. It is said that those makeup brushes which are made up of natural hair are good for powder products. They should not be used for the application of liquid products as they may absorb more product which can be the waste. If I talk about its price, it is INR 3000, which is according to me is rocket-high price. Although the product is useful and delivers enough colour as well as blends smoothly into the face, still price-wise it is too expensive. So to conclude, I would say that MAC small contour brush 109 is the perfect choice for the contouring purpose.

MAC Small Contour Brush 109 is an amazing brush with soft and densely packed synthetic fibres. This cruelty free brush works really well with powder and creamy contours. It doesn’t cause any sort of scratches or rashes on my face due to blending too much thus it’s very mild and soft. It picks up just the right amount of product be it a cream or powder and blends it perfectly on to my face.

Most Mac makeup brushes are made of natural hair mostly good hair. they are hand woven with wooden handle. this Mac brush 109 is a small contour brush Mainly to use with powder contour. as natural hair brushes tend to absorb a lot of product therefore liquid and cream based products are not recommended to be used with natural hair brushes. this contour brush by mac is amazing. give your nice decision and control to place the product on the hollows of the face where its needed. also the density of the brush make sure that the product is nicely blended and buffed into the skin. after blending with this brush there are no harsh lines and my overall makeup look is very soft. also with this there is zero shedding not only applying the control but also while washing it.

MAC Small Contour Brush 109 was gifted to me by my friend who is a makeup artist. She knows how much I like MAC products. If I want to treat myself, then I go to a MAC store. Their products are of great quality and I was very happy when my friend got me this. MAC Small Contour Brush 109 is the perfect brush for contouring. It helps me highlight the facial features well with the shades I use. The brush provides a nice precision and the highlight we are working on comes out well. With this brush, we can create the look which we have in our mind. The brush is soft but firm at the same time. It is easy to clean and the remains on the brush come off fine. When cleaning the brush dries out quickly. It is a multipurpose brush and it is very useful. I use the brush 109 to also apply highlighter on cheeks and I use it for blending two different products.
