$26 at Ulta stores.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
Pros: this brush is known to be a dupe of Mac's 187 BUT i do NOT own one so i can't say if they are comparible. but if it is a dupe, the price is a pro compared to Mac's.
-does the job a stippling brush should
-gives me a nice airbrushed look
-bristles are soft
-handle is long and sturdy
Cons: price, i own the sonia kashuk highlighter brush and i feel it does the same job for $10
My experience: when i first washed it, it shedded! i mean i was so mad, just the black bristles though. i thought, maybe once it dries it won't be so bad...then when it dried, i tried applying my studio fix liquid with it and i had to literally pick off 7 pieces of black bristles off my face! i was going to go back to Ulta to return it.
BUT, after the second wash there wasn't any shedding. *whew* i didn't want to pay $26 for a brush that sheds! i haven't noticed any shedding after the first wash since.
my real take on this: if you feel like spending a little, you should get this. BUT, if you are on the hunt for a cheaper version, get the Sonia Kashuk highlighter brush. it has never shedded on me and it does the same job this brush does.
