    Comprehensive Mac Brush List

    All,

    I've been collecting MAC brushes since 1999, but I know that I'm missing a few brushes; is there a comprehensive list some where of all brushes (old, new, discontinued).

    Please let me know if a thread already exists or if there's a link out on the web. I'm sure there's a veteran out there that knows all of the MAC brushes. Please help!

    Thanks

    Hi,


    this girl has a list - I think it's a while since she updated, I cant find the ones from the BBR collection - otherwise I believe it's quite good.

    Re: Comprehensive Mac Brush List

    Here's another work-in-progress brush listing. The descriptions are helpful. So between the 3 lists provided in this thread & the incorporation of makeupalley.com reviews, all the MAC brushes should be accounted for.

    MAC Brushes (EDITED 6 July 2009) Code Kiki
    - MUFE HD 120
    - BE Medium Beige with a touch of Golden Medium added in for a hint*more yellow
    - MAC:*Not quite an NC30 as it's a little too dark for me as it doesn't have enough yellow*in it.
    - Mehron HD:**Both ME1*& ME2
    - RCMA:* Both KO1 or KO2

    Re: Comprehensive Mac Brush List

    I have a 221 eye brush that I bought from a freestanding MAC store probably 5 years ago, maybe more. It is a skinnier version of the 222 and without the white hair. It's super soft and great for blending.

    This list is great. It needs to be updated to add newer brushes that's come along since 2009 like 159, 128, 287, etc.

    I was going through all of my brushes and decided to update my list so I figured I should add it here too. I hope that's ok. Im sure its not all inclusive because MAC brushes go back so far. I went mostly off what I have and some of what I know and could research, and I kept most of what was here too. Any corrections or additions are welcomed.

    I listed the number first, a description if I felt it needed one, the first collection I could find with that particular brush number in it, and if its limited (LE) or discontinued (Dcd).

    Hello everyone! I signed up for an account just so I could add to this list with my brushes that are discontinued and I have not been able to find anywhere online. I have multiple emails directly from MAC confirming the exisistance and authenticity of these! #1: there were actually two different #1's released, a big powder brush and a blending type brush. It can be compared to the 150 or 136. #7: compared to 252 #11: compared to 316 #22: compared to 266 #29: there is "no close match" #32: compared to 217 #33: I think I saw this on one list. Compared to 225 #35: no comparison #36: I think I saw this one on a list as well. Compared to 224. Hope this helped with your lists!!!! I have all of these in my possession, brand new, never used and a few duplicates! Sweet!

    Helo everyone!
    Does anyone has pictures/photos of these brushes?
    I'm thinking to buy 221 from mac's beauty collection, but don't know if it's worth and how does it compares to 222.
