MAC Brush Canister Collection Discussion

post #1 of 151
Thread Starter 

Soon to be released in the MAC Pro Sortiment are two brush containers.

 

Here is the promo text:

 

Any artist will appreciate the convenience of compartmentalized sections which allow for distinguishing between used and unused tools. Stores up to 16 brushes. Measures 2.5" diameter x 8.5" high fully extended (small). Stores up to 25 brushes. Measures 3" diameter x 8.5" high fully extended. (large).

If these are the clear ones the MUA at the counter I frequent were very excited about them.

It's a new product (not released yet). They look more milky than clear.

Just google-image "MAC Brush Canister" and it's the third picture from the left (it's NOT the official promo pic).

Cool!  This might be good for travel.  Don't know if I would want to use it as my usual brush holder -- looks a little too rubbermaidy for me.

That's a good idea. Do they fit in nicely? My problem would be that I use more than five brushes, lol.

Forgot to mention the price: 18/25 USD (+ tax). Don't know the Canadian or European prices.

I got excited when I started reading this thread...and then I saw the picture on google. Couldn't mac have put a little more effort into designing it?

I quite like it as it fulfills its purpose and is not heavy-weight, which is excellent for traveling (i.e. it does not take up a lot of weight). I can't see myself traveling around with a Hello Kitty brush holder. flower.gif For transportation purposes, I will still stick to the brush roll, but the new canisters allow an easy distinction/storage between clean and dirty brushes. This aspect was missing with the brush rolls/belt.

 

But I agree, it's not the most styling design, but that was not the point.

It reminds me of the vessels from Cozette and the Sigma Color Me... Line.

They are now at the Pro stores.  Saw them about a week ago.

I should have been more articulate. I meant to say it's not available on the website yet. It's still in "coming soon" mode, but hopefully it can be ordered soon. :-)

post #16 of 151

Yes, this is the one the MUA was telling me about.  I do not care for it but she was very excited about it. 

post #17 of 151

Hmm I once bought a paintbrush set for Art class and it came in a container exactly like this! Haha, I should hunt it down. It was quite cheap I recall cause I was only 14 back then.

It does what it's supposed to do  so I will probably still end up buying one of these when they're on the website/pro stores near(ish) me.

I don't think they will turn up on the regular website, but call your local Pro Store. Maybe they are already released in the UK?

I would have made them in different colors... such as glossy black (for a more professional view).. and why not pink :P

post #21 of 151

Black would be better than Tupperware clear. Just sayin'

Yes, it's from the Pro sortiment (as stated in the first post), but it's still not available on the Pro site (yet). I don't know about stores. Did you buy it?

post #27 of 151

Oi, it's a tad awkward looking

Yes, I called the Costa Mesa Pro Store and they're shipping it to me.  I was not in the mood for the 405 freeway today.

Oooo i like the idea of all those compartments so i can keep all my brushes together and have them sorted out alot easier... but i agree, which it looked a little prettier!

 

But if i can, i want to check that out and get my hands on one, atm they are sorted in seperately in my traincase with clean on their own tray and to be cleaned tucked away in a little zip bag

These compartments is exactly what I am looking for as they will keep my brushes organized.
