one eight seven


WELL. i finally caved and paid £31 for a makeup brush and bought the 187. the mac lady kind of talked me into it but i didn't need much persuasion really..! i fully admit i do NOT get along with foundation applicators, i've tried the mac 190, a beauty blender (which is ok), damp sponges, other brand foundation brushes, fingers.. none of which i've ever thought, YES THIS IS IT, THIS MAKES MY MAKEUP LOOK GOOD. i HATE the 190, it makes my face look streaky no matter how i use it so to pay out £31 for a brush that i wasn't convinced about, despite it's amazing reviews was a pretty big risk on my part. and my verdict?

I LOVE IT. IT IS AMAZING. FABULOUS. WONDERFUL. ETC ETC.

i seriously can't get over how much of a difference it makes! i use it to apply liquid foundation (using doublewear at the moment) AND a setting powder (makeup forever super matte) and it's just.. perfect. it requires less product but makes the skin look flawless, i find my makeup often looks like it sits ON TOP of my skin, but with the 187 it feels like it IS my skin. (creepiest sentence i've ever wrote, probably not the last.)

i will try and provide photo evidence on how it works on me but for now i will leave you with this heavily cropped photograph which kind of shows what i mean.

ps if anyone was wondering i'm wearing the red lace peter pan collar dress from topshop which is going for CRAZY amounts on ebay. so bizarre!

  6. Hmmm! I use a foundation brush, but i use a Body Shop one! I do see the difference with the brush BUT I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN WITH "IN" your skin rather than on top.. thats how i always feel when my makeup is done at MAC! btw love the peter pan dress.. so cute xxx
