I was at the International Makeup-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) in April and grabbed a few goodies from Royal & Langnickel. I bought the BC180 Silk Baby Dome Powder brush and the BC448 Silk Super Eye Fluff,
which I will be reviewing in a later post (review).
In comparison to the Mac 109 brush (review), the BC180 brush is much softer, denser, and bigger than the 109. The BC180 just makes applying any product easier in general because it picks up the right amount of product and covers my entire cheek area in one swipe. I also love it for buffing out over applied products.
However, if you do alot of contouring, then I recommend getting the Mac 109 because it gives you more control.
The only gripe I have with the BC180 brush is that it sheds 1-2 hairs after each wash. I've had it for more than a month now, but I don't know how much longer it can last. (Maybe I got a defective one?)
Note: The handle says, " Royal & Langnickel Silk Pro" and on the other side, it says, "Baby Dome C180." The brush measures 6 inches in total, while the head of the brush is 1.1 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide at the widest point.
It costs $14.99 at Royal & Langnickel's main website. They also charge $5.50 for shipping. I paid $8 at IMATS.
