Makeup Geek Brush - Rounded Blush Brush



The rounded blush brush is the perfect way to apply just the right amount of color to the cheeks! The rounded edges assure a smooth and well blended application, and the circular shape is ideal for working the color into the apples of your cheeks. Due to it’s smaller size, this brush also works great for contouring. The longer handle balances the brush head for a comfortable and controlled application.

Our new design features a bronze gunmetal ferrule, and an espresso tinted handle with a beautiful pearl finish for a sleek and elegant look. The bristles include all synthetic fibers for a cruelty free (& guilt free) makeup application!


  • Brush Bristles: Synthetic (cruelty free)

  • Seamless Ferrule: Tightly holds bristles in place to eliminate shedding

  • Brush Handle Colors: Gunmetal bronze, espresso w/pearl finish

  • Estimated Brush Length : 7”

  • Perfect for Contouring!

    Review by Angela on March 22, 2015

    I am not really a fan of the angled contour brushes, and when Jaclyn Hill recommended this one, I immediately purchased! Perfect for the hollows of your cheek bones, the top of your face, and your jaw line. Shipping was fast and easy as well! I will definitely be repurchasing from Makeup Geek!

    Review by Nicole on December 28, 2014

    This brush makes contouring a breeze. I am not a professional by any means, however after using this brush you would never know! I love it.
  • Perfect for contouring!

    Review by Anthea on December 17, 2014

    I purchased this brush with the intention of using it as a contour brush and it is perfect! I have extremely fair skin and find that whether I use greyish or brownish toned powders, I look muddy and dirty very easily. Somehow, this brush has made it infinitely easier to contour. It picks up the perfect amount of product and is small/ stiff enough to fit into the hollow of my cheek and give me definition exactly where I want it, but still round/ fluffy enough to blend out any harsh lines.
  • Blush/Contour/Highlighter

    Review by Magen on May 26, 2014

    At first use I was a little apprehensive because the brush did shed quite a bit when using. But after using it a few times the shedding decreased, this was after initially washing the brush as well.

    I use this for applying blush, contouring, and highlighting with powder products. It picks up the product easily and applies smoothly. Even though the brush is small, I don't think it really matters.
  • I finally found MY blush brush!

    Review by Lindsay on May 24, 2014

    I am in love withnthis brush! I havena small face and most makeup brushes are to big and I get color everywhere! This is the perfect blush, contour and highlighting brush. Move over Sigma, MUG is moving in.
  • On the fence

    Review by Alanna on May 3, 2014

    This brush is small and not very fluffy. It works well for getting a vibrant application of blush on the apples of the cheeks but it is not very effective in blending it out. If you are looking for something that can pack blush on the cheeks effectively and blend it out using a different brush then this is the brush for you! I personally like using a bigger fluffier blush brush to feather the colour out evenly. The quality of these brushes is amazing.
  • Small but good

    Review by Elizabeth on January 2, 2014

    I do like this brush, but I think it is quite small. I sometimes use it for contouring also.
  • Good blush brush

    Review by Elizabeth on August 7, 2013

    This brush has received mixed reviews, so I was a little hesitant to purchase it. I was in serious need of a good blush brush and wanted to spend less than the Sigma brushes. So far, this seems to be working very well. The blush application with this brush is even and smooth. However, I am not completely in love with this one and if I had extra money to spend on a blush brush I probably would have purchased one from Sigma, but this is a good alternative. (It's really hard to beat the quality/price of the Sigma brushes.) I haven't experienced any shedding or weird smells from the bristles. I wash mine after each use with an even mixture of antibacterial soap and olive oil. Works great and drys fast.
  • Too rough

    Review by CalTiki on July 25, 2013

    I wanted to like this brush....

    I was very excited to receive my MUG brushes and to try them out. I was generally very happy with the quality. Unfortunately I can't say that about this brush. It is rough, scratchy and feels cheap.
  • This has been the blush brush I have been looking for!

    Review by Kendra on May 18, 2013

    This has been the perfect brush for blush. It pick up color great, the brush is stiff, but soft and fluffy. I though that the white color of the brush would hard to clean, but I like that is is white rather than black. Very easy brush to clean with any spot cleaner, and deep cleaning. It could also be used as a contouring brush too. Great job MUG :) I really love this brush and its a great price too.
  • in love!

    Review by alicia on March 26, 2013

    This is by far my favorite blush brush, I was using Eco Tools blush brush and thought nothing could top it. WRONG! This brush is AMAZING, it picks up color very nicely and applies great. Great quality and for the price, you can't beat it.
  • Possibly the best blush brush I've tried

    Review by Bianca on February 13, 2013

    This is probably the best blush brush I've tried! Works perfectly doesn't apply to much colour and allows me to blend out my blush easily. Fantastic!
  • Not fluffy as a blush brush should be

    Review by Maribel on January 23, 2013

    I bought this brush thinking it was like a blush brush just angled but it is not fluffy at all. It looks more like the couture brush. I have not tried it yet but I was disappointed when I received it.
  • as lasted 2 yrs so far!

    Review by beeyes on November 18, 2012

    I love my blush brush. absolutely NO shedding, I mean not one air, I have used and washed this tons of times! Very good quality brush.
    Will continue to buy Marlenaas brushes! Thanks Marlena for great quality AND price!!
  • Amazzzzing

    Review by ilovecheetah on October 17, 2012

    I would recommend this brush to anyone it works soooo well. If your only able to buy one brush or are hesitant on the quality get this brush the quality is amazing and you will literally be stunned by the results I have a luminess airbrush makeup system that i no longer use because this brush works BETTER!!!!!
  • Was good at first... then got really scratchy over time..

    Review by Judith on September 26, 2012

    Sad that this brush took a wrong turn... too scratchy now.. can hardly use it!!
  • Good enough

    Review by Eun hee on August 12, 2012

    I have bought this brush after reading all the reviews here - so thank you everyone who cared to review the product!
    I think the brush does the job. I did not experience any shedding of the bristles personally, but then, I do make sure I don't wash any of my brushes under hot water...
    Regarding the smell from the brush, I agree with many people here that no matter how many times I wash, the brush still smells. The smell doesn't bother too much as only one (this brush) smells... however, if all my brushes smelled like this, that will definitely drive me nuts...
    Overall, I don't regret purchasing this.
  • ok

    Review by zay on July 18, 2012

    I just got my brushes today and theyre all brilliant, except for when I washed this brush it turned frizzy so im not too happy about that.

    Review by MELANIE on May 22, 2012


    Review by Karina on March 31, 2012

    My friend bought it and it shed alot and it wasn't as fluffy like a Blush Brush should be. Like more rounder on the bottom. So Im nt sure if I want to buy it any more. But if you change it I will. Because I seen every one complaining. Can you make sure it doesn't shed before you send it out because I want to buy it and more fluffy.
  • Great!

    Review by PhoenixLala on March 23, 2012

    I really like this blush brush. It's just the perfect size and mine hasn't shed at all. I'm really pleased and would definitely buy this again!
  • decent product

    Review by JASHAN on March 18, 2012

    I bought this brush about a month ago and it really sheds. Though it is soft and a great price.
  • Impressed

    Review by Tabatha on January 25, 2012

    If you continue to create brushes like this one you may really give MAC some competition. I was very impressed with this brush and the other two that I purchased. The price was great and the quality is excellent. Would definitely recommend.
  • Great blush brush!

    Review by jemith on December 10, 2011

    This is the best blush brush I've ever had. It applies color evenly and blends well. Great value for the money!
  • It shed after 2 washings...

    Review by MC on December 5, 2011

    I don't know if I ended up with a dud brush, but my blush brush shed after 2 washes..and I carefully care for my brushes. It's unfortunate because it is a great brush for contouring, nice an soft, and blends beautifully. The goat hair smell was strong though like others have mentioned.
  • Decent

    Review by Melanie on November 30, 2011

    Decent brush blush, packs on colour just fine. Its a little bit too small in my opinion. But thats no drama :)
  • Very nice

    Review by Rita0317 on October 11, 2011

    I am very impressed with this brush. I went to MAC and wanted to buy the 168, but decided to wait since I want to do more homework on their brushes. Then I remembered this site. SO glad I waited. This is the same as the MAC one and way cheaper. Very soft. = )
  • Great for blush application but it stinks!!

    Review by Aisha on September 25, 2011

    This was one of 3 MUG brushes I've just purchased from first when I opened I found a terrible sheep smell from the bristles..even after 2-3 times wash, the smell dint disappear..then I sprayed some of perfumes to it n washed twice smell is almost gone..though it's perfect for blush application..provides a very blended blush application but just that smell thing is annoying..I wonder if anyone else has experienced it or not..??
  • good product.

    Review by leena on July 14, 2010

    This brush works the same as mac 168 i highly recommend. It gives me the contour i need and sometimes just cheek blush if i want to be quick with it hehe ;) also good price well worth it.

  • good for the price

    Review by Nadia on May 10, 2010

    The brush is really good, but it sheds. When I got it, it said to clean it before using it. I liked that it is soft, but it sheds.
  • Good Quality

    Review by beeyes on May 7, 2010

    I like this brush, although the tip is quite small, I guess I was expecting the brush itself to be a little larger.
    All in all a nice good srong brush!!
  • Great brush!

    Review by Suzy on April 10, 2010

    I just got this brush and I really like it. It's dense and picks up and distributes the color on the cheeks very well.
