MAC Studio Fix users. If you apply with a brush, which one?

I am thinking of the 130. I want coverage (not as much as the sponge gives) and a kabuki, or larger brush is not enough coverage.

Can you tell me which you use? Thanks!

I don't regularly use it, I am not in love with the studio fix powder. When I do apply it i use a large kabuki brush.

I use Smashbox Brush #13 for Studio Fix Fluid and a Bare Escentuals Full Coverage Kabuki Brush for the Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation.

When I gave the Studio Fix a try, I used the 190 Foundation Brush. Very nice coverage.

I tried being patient but it took too long.

I get the best application when I use my $4.oo flat top powder brush from Elf.I had learned about this brush from you tube.This is the best brush for foundation,powder and liquid and its4 dollars.i have 10 of these brushes because I use them for just about everything.

I use the BE full buki brush to apply my Mac studio fix. It helps my face look airbrushed!Kiss

I use BE's Handy Buki to apply Studio Fix and it works great. I have a Sonia Kashuk flat top brush and thanks to beauty junkie, I think I'll try that! Wink

I actually spend the $6 to buy a two pack of the sponges that come with it. I have tried every other make-up wedge/sponge and other reg, makeup brushes. anything to not pay $3 a pop, but to me I get the best results with the sponge that comes with it. one of the mac ladies told me it was 'specially made' to be used to apply that specific product.

I switch around foundations so I don't use this real often, but I think if you want fairly heavy coverage I would apply with the sponge then go over it and buff it down with the Kabuki.I got out my new 109 and I think it would work fine and get around the nose nicely but seems like it would take a long time as its not a very big brush. I have been using it for applying countour powder in my cheek hollows.
