More Info


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 except that shedding!!!
I knew that this brush was going to be amazing when I purchased it but it let me down with it's never ending shedding! The size of the brush, weight, shape of the bristles and how awesomely it fits under ur cheek bone to contour is everything that I want in a contour brush but that shedding is for the birds! I hope that the makeup geek team can revise this brush to a better non shedding version. The experience that I have had with this brush has held me back from purchasing any other brush for makeup geeks line.

Note from Customer Service: thanks for the feedback -- one of our team members will follow up with you on this as we want to make sure it is meeting our standards :)

Rough Brush, Bristles Fall Off
I am very disappointed in this brush and this is my first MG brush as well. The bristles are way too rough and the bristles are constantly falling off especially when you wash them. It applies highlight good but there's so many other brushes I reach to that isn't going to have bristles fall off constantly.I really wish I could return it, I l o v e the MG eyeshadows but I am just not impressed with this brush :/

Didn't Love It
Better for contour than blush. Bristles are very rough and the hairs fall out :(

Game Changer!
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
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.

Perfect For Contouring!
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!

Fool Proof
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!
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.

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

Good Blush Brush
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
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!
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!
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
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
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!

I would recommend this brush to anyone it works soooo well.

Was Good At First... Then Got Really Scratchy Over Time..
Sad that this brush took a wrong turn... too scratchy now.. can hardly use it!!

Good Enough
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.

More Fluffly & No More Shedding!!!!
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.
Karina wrote on 3/31/2012
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
I bought this brush about a month ago and it really sheds. Though it is soft and a great price.
JASHAN wrote on 3/18/2012
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.

It Shed After 2 Washings...
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 brush blush, packs on colour just fine. Its a little bit too small in my opinion. But thats no drama :)
Melanie wrote on 11/30/2011
Very Nice
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!!
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 For The Price
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
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!!
