I went to M.A.C to get color matched the other day and the artist used this brush to apply the foundation.. It was so soft and the foundation looked so beautiful! I went home, and last night I caved and ordered it. I am so excited to own my first M.A.C face brush! I owned one M.A.C eye brush once, the 224, but sadly I cannot find it. :( I literally wanted to cry. These guys are esspensiveeee.
