MAC 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush Review & Photos


MAC 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush

MAC 188 brush (Price – 2300 and its from Permanent range)  has been in my wishlist since so many years but  whenever I visited MAC my hands automatically move to eye shadow and lipsticks. Few months back Rash ordered it for herself from U.S and a few weeks back she ordered for me too. My lucky stars worked and my MAC brush reached before hers 😀 .With a sad heart I told Rash to keep it with her till the time she gets her own MAC 188 but she knew I wanted it ASAP and was very kind to send me this one.

Since the day the brush has reached me I have washed it every day 😀 (with tenderness, with care!). Albeit I know washing every day is not good for my brush bristles health but this brush is just too damn good.

It is a blend of goat and synthetic fiber brush with a flat top circular brush applying liquid and powder blush has never been this easy .This brush is just half of the diameter of 187 and because of its small size it makes every thing so simple.

I have even tried using it for applying foundation and it works as good as MAC 187 but it takes more time because of its small size but given a choice between 187 or 188 I will definitely chose this one and the reason is its multipurpose use .

One can use it for applying  liquid foundation, powder blush, liquid blush,applying powder highlighter on your cheeks and nose. This brush gives somehow much better control and that light natural flush to my cheeks.

Its nice dense and soft bristles are a treat to use and with no fly ways with repeated washing it’s going to stay long long with me.

What I do not like about MAC 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush:-

  • The price which has made me stay away from it for so long 🙁
  • I have been really nice to it but still the number on the brush got scratched with in no time.
  • It’s bristles picks up lot of colours so one have be careful while using it.

Recommendations – If you are a blush and a highlighter person then do try it  in the store once. You will be sold with in no time and will get it one fine day 🙂

Wise She Rating – 4.5/5
