Tonight I saw the new brushes Mac are releasing in the Semi-Precious collection & just had to share my thoughts on them.
|179 Angled Split Fibre Buffer Brush|
|128 Split Fibre Cheek Brush|
|234 Split Fibre Eye Blending Brush|
|235 Split Fibre All Over Eye Brush|
Basically they all have one side natural bristle and one side synthetic, under the presumption that natural brushes are best for powder products and synthetic brushes best for liquid & cream products
First of all I think they look incredibly odd like the frankenstein of brushes and secondly I can't see any of them getting any use on a regular basis except perhaps the 235 which would be good for using my beloved Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows with the synthetic side & then going over with an eyeshadow with the natural bristle side.
When I initially saw the 128 brush it looked lovely & just my kind of brush natural bristle side up that is (& very much like my coveted Shu Uemura foundation brush) I was definitely making a mental purchase until I saw the very familiar traditional foundation brush synthetic side.
So what do you think they will be like? A jack of all trades, master of nothing is my feelings but I am waiting to be proven wrong.
