EDIT from the future – I bought this brush! Here is the review along with comparisons to other brushes I own. 🙂
This is an emergency lemming! This unplanned post is to ask your opinion about this new MAC brush that launched with the “MAC is Beauty” collection. Today I had the opportunity to view and touch this brush at the store (I can’t help it, I always stop by the MAC store if there’s a new release).
This is the brush in question:
I really (really) want it. It’s so soft and feathery and it’s something different that I don’t have in my collection. I would use it for highlighting and pigmented blushers. My issue is that it is limited edition (typical MAC!). And the SA said to me, “Oh this is selling out fast, I only have a few left.” She just knows what buttons to push!
In your opinion, does the MAC 137 Long Blending Brush look similar to this Hakuhodo G5537BkSL Powder Brush pointed:
They’re really close, right? I can just wait it out and buy the Hakuhodo once my No-Buy is over, right? The Hakuhodo is cheaper too, $35 USD vs MAC’s $42 USD ($50.50 CAD, ugh).
To a lesser extent, I also want the smaller eye blending brush (221 Mini Tapered Blending) that was released as part of this collection too:
But I have a few brushes that are similar to this, I think. And I bet Hakuhodo probably has something similar as well.
Thought? Ahhh, this is my time of need. You’re my only hope!
