My Experience with MAC 116 Blush Brush

I recently picked up this blush brush from MAC. Honestly, I was not too convinced with the shape. I am used to of using more rounded and fluffier brushes while this is more tapered and kind of precise. I have been using this brush non stop and I am so absolutely in love with this.

  • It is a natural bristles brush so it is not the softest brush you would come across. But it is quite soft and I noticed that it is even softer now that I have washed it a few times. I mean I wouldn’t put it in a scratchy brush category but it is not the softest one I have used so far. It’s still good.
  • The bristles pick up the blush easily.
  • The brush applies the color evenly.
  • The narrower shape of the brush gives control for a precise application. I mean even if you are a newbie to applying blush, you cannot go wrong with it.
  • You can easily use it for contouring or applying highlight as well.
  • So far there has been no shedding of bristles or bleeding after washing.
  • The brush is lightweight.
  • Washes and dries just fine.

Overall, I totally love this brush. I have been using this brush non stop since the time I have bought it. But I feel there is a room for improvement in terms of the softness of bristles is concerned. Totally like it but you can definitley find softer brushes than this in the market.

Rating : 3.9/5
