Product Review: MAC's 116 Blush Brush

New year, new blog! I'm too excited about all this so let's get right to the nitty gritty:

 MAC's 116 Blush Brush

Now I've been looking everywhere for a good blush brush that not only packs on well but blends with ease. After hovering over MAC's selection of blush brushes, I decided that the 116 looked like it would do the job. & it DID! It's shaped into a flat oval which helps deposit product easily. The fact that the head is small makes it a great size for packing onto cheeks. I have a bit of a problem using blush brushes with bigger heads because it applies TOO much blush sometimes (which makes my cheeks and Bozo the clowns look the same). The best way to apply product with this is patting the product on the cheeks first THEN going back with it in circular motions to blend it all together. Overall, a good blush brush! I've also been reaching for this product to contour as well. It's bristles are small enough to fit into the hollows of the cheek. Very versatile! The only bad thing I can say about this product is that it can get a bit scratchy and it doesn't work well with cream blushes. It retails for $35 which can be a bit pricey for a brush but well worth the buy! 
-Flat head picks up product with ease
-Deposits enough product onto cheek
-Versatile! Can also be used for bronzing + contouring
-Can be a bit scratchy at times
-Doesn't work well with cream blushes  


  1. I've never tried any of Mac's brushes, there's a couple which I hear mentioned multiple times which I would like to eventually try though!
