I didn't bother to order this duo fiber brush during the pre-buy specials they had in last October. Has anyone actually purchased this brush? I really want to know the quality and how is it compare to the MAC #187 before shelling out $42 on the MAC brush. Thanks in advance!

I didn't get that one but the angled one. They look pretty similar but I don't think it's the same. I also have the 187 and it feels better. Maybe it's just me though. Like the one from Lumiere is almost too soft. I like them both since I use them for different things. The 187 for foundation and the Lumiere for MSF's and glows since it applies product very sheer.

Excuse the dirtiness of the 187 lol and my effed up nails.

I bought all of the brushes. The Lumiere's angled duo fiber seems much less dense than their other duo fiber brushes. Their duo fiber brushes are okay, but I still prefer my 187.

Yep me too. That's good to know though, that the angled is much less dense than the other one... since I only have the angled from Lumiere.

Thank you! It's the dark pleasures one from the Revlon collection. I'm sad to say it chips way to easily. They pretty much looked like that the day after I did them. Using a base coat helps a bit which I didn't use this time though.

I got the regular Duo Fiber Optic brush from Lumiere and I'm pretty happy with it. I wasn't about to shell out 50 bucks for the 187. The Lumiere brush does what I wanted it to do: sheer, natural application and feels extremely soft on the cheeks.

I got one duo fiber brush for myself, and one for my mom. I wouldn't know how it compares to the MAC 187 in terms of blush application(since I've only tried using the Lumiere brush to apply Centerfold finishing powder) But I think it's a good enough alternative if you don't want to shell out $42 for the 187. The 187 has a fuller circular head than the Lumiere brush. The latter has a different head shape.

I have no MAC brushes and have never felt one before so I can't do a comparison.

I do, however, LOVE my duo fiber optic brushes (have 2) and one angled. They apply blush to my very, very, very fair skin, perfectly


Warmly,

Brandi

I can't afford the 187 so I bought Lumiere's Duo Fiber Optic brush after hearing how similar it was to the 187 in the way it applies the product, be it wet or dry, onto the face. Since then, I've been using it to apply my foundation wet.
