    MAC 180 brush in stock right now!!!!

    I'm glad to be the bearer of some good news!! The MAC 180 small buffer brush is currently in stock. I have been looking on ebay for this brush but honestly, I was very skeptical of buying it there. Anyways after searching international MAC sites and seeing they are available in Korea, France and Germany. I decided to call the Customer service number to inquire about purchasing on one of the international sites.To my astonishment the representative said they have some in stock and I could order over the phone today!!!!!I told her there are many people looking for this brush on the beauty blogs and she was amazed.She told me they had just got a shipment in from their supplier and they have a couple in stock, so I ordered two of them.
    Here is the customer service number: 1-800-387-6707 and press #6 to order.Note that the company goes by eastern time.
    I hope i help people get their mac 180 brushes a.s.ap

    It's the 181, just for clarification

    But thanks so much for posting this! I really want this brush.
    There's a reason why "M.A.C." rhymes with "crack".

    Do you mean the 181? It says sold out?

    I emphasized 180 with the rep and the price was $42.00 the original retail price of the 180 brush. I will let you guys know if I receive the correct brushes or not when I get my shipment in 2-4 days.

    Erm, I'm not trying to be an a-hole in any sense, but:

    The only two buffer brushes that MAC currently sells are the 181 [small] and the 182 [large]. The 182 sells for $42 and the 181 for $30.

    I just want everyone, including you, to be getting the right info.

    And please, anyone, if I'M wrong, please tell me LOL

    there is a 180 buffer brush, it's the same brush Kim K. uses on her makeup video tutorial, when she applies her liquid foundation. and that brush is hard to find.

    Yeah I asked why is it discontinued in the U.S. and she said it was an LE brush.This brush is not on the MAC website, that is why I was inquiring about purchasing it from an international MAC website until she told me that they have some in stock.The number I provided is not the MAC website customer service number, it's the MAC/Estee Lauder market branch customer service number.

    OHHH! I see! I'm so sorry.

    The only small buffer brush I'm familiar with is the 181! Sorry about that.

    Looks like you'll be getting JUST what you wanted!

    I thought this brush is available at CCO isn't it? I know quite a few of people who bought it there.

    My only disappointment when I got the brush was ...damn it looked bigger on the website...but it works great...reminds me of the old Barbershop brushes

    I recently got a 180 a few weeks ago and LOVE it. Had no idea what I had been missing out on for so long. I love to buff my SFF into my skin after I apply it with the 188. I also love it for applying MSFN powders. I need another one! I just recently washed mine with warm water and MAC brush cleanser and reshaped it and it went back to its original shape with no problems or shedding!

    NVM, duh! you live in San diego! I wonder if they will accept my pro discount?

    Re: MAC 180 brush in stock right now!!!!

    I just placed an order for the 180 over the phone, and they did apply my MAC Pro discount, so with shipping it came out to under $38. I'll update once I receive it. Hopefully it's the right one!

    Re: MAC 180 brush in stock right now!!!!

    Squeeee!!!!!! I just ordered the 180 today & I also got to use my Pro card... I should be getting it in 2-3 days & to think I was going to pay almost $50 for it on Ebay

    I already thanked your post but thank you again for this very valuable info!!!

    Also, the customer service girl I spoke to said they had a TON in stock.. So I suggest you get the 180 while you can before its too late....

    Re: MAC 180 brush in stock right now!!!!

    I got one too!!! FINALLY!!

    42.00 + 7.50 S&H = 49.50 total. Not bad, considering I was going to pay 50 buck on ebay for one that may or may not be the real thing. I'm told I'll receive it in 2-4 days...I'm so happy!!

    Re: MAC 180 brush in stock right now!!!!

    So I have a question for everyone...I just received mine today and when I washed it, the brush smelled awful! I washed it as I normally do (a little baby shampoo & brush conditioner) This has happened with my SE 168 brush (it's also white hair) I dunno, I was just curious, so if any of you haven't washed yours yet, when you do can you smell it (lol) and give me your thoughts?

    Re: MAC 180 brush in stock right now!!!!

    The smell usually goes away when the bristles dry. It's a goat-haired brush, so it might stink a little when it gets wet. I may be wrong but the reason your other brush doesn't smell is because it's made out of synthetic bristles?
