Didn't love it Review by Liz
Better for contour than blush. Bristles are very rough and the hairs fall out :( (Posted on 10/5/15)
Game changer! Review by Megan
I use this brush for contouring, and it's amazing! I personally don't wear any face products aside from contour powder and blush. No face primers, foundation, etc and that's only because I don't need them and feel it's unnecessary to put excess makeup on my face. Blending is key when it comes to my skin (blush and contour powder apply patchy at first, but I just blend it out and within a couple minutes, my blush + contour application looks flawless). This brush exceeds my expectations of a contour brush, it's like it was specifically designed and made for my face shape. Couldn't be happier with it and wouldn't change a thing about it if I could. I think it's hilarious that I use the blush brush for contouring and angled stippling brush (what Marlena uses to contour) as a blush brush. Please don't ever stop making this brush!

So Good Review by Kate
Perfect for contouring or sculpted bronzing. I think it might be named a bit weird, since I could never see how this brush could be used for blush, but I guess to each their own. It's good for precision, but can blend out product if you press hard enough (nothing crazy). When pressure is used, the brush fans out and blends so nicely. (Posted on 5/17/15)
Perfect for Contouring! Review by Angela
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! (Posted on 3/22/15)
Fool Proof Review by Nicole
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. (Posted on 12/28/14)
Perfect for contouring! Review by Anthea
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
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. (Posted on 5/26/14)
I finally found MY blush brush! Review by Lindsay
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. (Posted on 5/24/14)
Small but good Review by Elizabeth
I do like this brush, but I think it is quite small. I sometimes use it for contouring also. (Posted on 1/2/14)
Good blush brush Review by Elizabeth
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. (Posted on 8/7/13)
Too rough Review by CalTiki
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. (Posted on 7/25/13)
This has been the blush brush I have been looking for! Review by Kendra
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. (Posted on 5/18/13)
in love! Review by alicia
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. (Posted on 3/26/13)
Possibly the best blush brush I've tried Review by Bianca
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! (Posted on 2/13/13)
Not fluffy as a blush brush should be Review by Maribel
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. (Posted on 1/23/13)

Amazzzzing Review by ilovecheetah
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
Sad that this brush took a wrong turn... too scratchy now.. can hardly use it!! (Posted on 9/26/12)
Good enough Review by Eun hee
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. (Posted on 8/12/12)
ok Review by zay

PLEASE MAKE MORE TYPES OF BRUSHES!!!!!!!!! (Posted on 5/22/12)
MORE FLUFFLY & NO MORE SHEDDING!!!! Review by Karina
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. (Posted on 3/31/12)

I bought this brush about a month ago and it really sheds. Though it is soft and a great price. (Posted on 3/18/12)
Impressed Review by Tabatha
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. (Posted on 1/25/12)
Great blush brush! Review by jemith
This is the best blush brush I've ever had. It applies color evenly and blends well. Great value for the money! (Posted on 12/10/11)
It shed after 2 washings... Review by MC
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. (Posted on 12/5/11)
Decent Review by Melanie
Decent brush blush, packs on colour just fine. Its a little bit too small in my opinion. But thats no drama :) (Posted on 11/30/11)
Very nice Review by Rita0317
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. = ) (Posted on 10/11/11)
Great for blush application but it stinks!! Review by Aisha
This was one of 3 MUG brushes I've just purchased from Makeupgeek..at 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 again..now 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..?? (Posted on 9/25/11)

good for the price Review by Nadia
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. (Posted on 5/10/10)
