Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush VS MAC 109 Small Contour Brush

Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush VS MAC 109 Small Contour Brush

Many have been using the MAC 109 Brush for applying liquid and cream foundations and marvel at its effectiveness for this purpose.

Well move over MAC 109, there is a new brush in town - Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush. The Sonia Kashuk Brush buffs and blends, glides and layers with ease. It’s super soft and CHEAP! This is my foundation CHAMP!!!

The Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat Blusher Brush is described succinctly as a blush brush and as the name suggests uses synthetic fibres. This brush retails for $14.99 at Target Stores and at http://www.target.com/.

The MAC 109 Small Contour Brush according to the MAC website:
"Use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products. Softly rounded dome tip delivers just enough colour; smoothly blends colour into the face. Of natural fibres."
This brush retails for $32 at MAC stores
 and on http://www.maccosmetics.com/
or http://www.macpro.com/.

For half the price of the MAC 109 Brush, the Sonia Kashuk Flat Blusher Brush rules the school.

For more read on....

The Sonia Kashuk Brush can be used for liquids, creams or powders (and all in between). The brush is densely packed with ultra soft synthetic bristles.

This brush delivers amazing results when used for applying liquid foundation. It has the perfect shape for buffing liquid or cream foundation smoothly into the skin without leaving streaks. It fits neatly into the creases of the nose and glides effortlessly underneath the eyes and between the brows.

It also works great with cream and powder blushes. The size allows for good control in the cheek area and blends blush products beautifully. Also, no need to pack product onto the brush…just a dab go a far way with this brush.

At this price you can afford to own a couple of these for different uses. I already have three (3) and keep them in rotation. I have not experienced any fallout with these brushes between usage and washing. However, they do take a long time to dry when they are washed. Even washing takes a little elbow work to get all the product out of the brush. Also, be sure not to pull on the bristles when washing....they may pop out (they are not as secure as the MAC 109).

Compared to the MAC 109 brush, the Sonia Kashuk brush wins hands down. My MAC 109 is not close to as dense as my Sonia Kashuk. MAC 109 can leave streaks and hairs on my skin when used for foundation application. Plus, the MAC 109 is really expensive to boot. I keep my MAC 109 for powder blushes or bronzer application and my Sonia Kashuk takes over for foundation and cream products.

Be sure to check this brush out....!!!!! It's WORTH it!!!

  1. i just got this brush the other day and so far i love it. i washed it as soon as i got it and it didn't shed a single hair. I hated the 109. it shed like craze and like you said, it was no where near as dense as the SK. Great review :)
