MAC BBR, brush #226

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

How do you like the MAC BBR collection? I mentioned I was going to get the new 214 brush before but after seeing it in person, I changed my mind. The tip of the bristle is not thick and stiff enough as the regular smudge brush imo. Unlike the ones from NARS and Sephora, it is basically just the top half of the MAC 239 in black bristle. Although it is a bit firmer, I can just use the 239 to do the job. The Redhead msf looks so pretty but I didn't get it in the end... lesson learned. I was a MSFs collector before but I slowly sold or swapped away most of my msfs cuz they were just eye candy for me sitting in the bottom of the drawer untouched. To me they are too frosty as highlighter and not pigmented enough as blush... I ended up only keep the ones that I can use as bronzer.

The only thing I got from this collection was the 226 pointed blending brush. I'm a sucker for crease brush of course can't resist this one. The 226 is very pointed, the size is smaller than 224 and 222, it actually reminds me of 219 pencil brush but softer. I don't have 219 so this will be good for detail works. I will do a comparison of all my crease brushes later.

Mac has this widget that gives their fan to upload their own photos to try a new BBR do. I found it hilarious. Go here to get your own look :)

I wanted to buy the 226 crease brush today, but unfortunately it was sold out everywhere!

The MAC MA told me it was sold out since few weeks already! ;(

Why didn't I get there earlier? I'm so disappointed! Wanted this brush sooo much!
