MAC 187 Duo Fibre Brush Review, Pictures & Dupes

From the Website:
A large full circular brush used for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments. Use to create soft layers or add textures. Made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres.

18 cm

This is probibly the most famous face brush from MAC. Before I got this brush, I heard like a million people say this is the best face brush ever. You can use this for powder, liquid and cream. Almost for every thing you can think.
Well, I don't agree.
I think this brush is really unique, and I like the idea. The thing is the white part is really soft, and for liquid foundation this is just to soft to make that air brush look. I still prefer to use fingers to apply liquid foundation. Since I have dry skin, this brush doesn't not work for me with liquid foundations. Same with cream foundations. I use this for powders sometimes because this brush won't pick up too much powder. I found out that this brush is good for apply NARS blush, because NARS blushes are just too pigmented, this brush is kinda helping to tone down the pigmentation.

Sonia Kashuk Highlighting Brush (Target): This is my first duo fiber brush ever. This brush is not as soft as the MAC one, but this makes this brush apply liquid foundation better. It is a little bit prickly for me, but not too bad.
E.L.F. Stipple Brush (online): This brush doesn't have enough hair... I use this to apply powder for smaller area.
Face Secrets Bronzer Brush (Sally Beauty Supply): I like this one the most out of these four brushes. The flat part is bigger than the MAC one, and just as soft as the MAC one. I use this one the most.

Soft:  MAC > Face Secrets > E.L.F. > Sonia Kashuk
Shad: MAC > E.L.F. > Sonia Kashuk > Face Secrets
length(the brush part): Sonia Kashuk > Face Secrets > E.L.F. > MAC (they are just slightly difference, you can almost ignore )
Size(the brush part):  Face Secrets = Sonia Kashuk > MAC > E.L.F.
Density: Face Secrets = Sonia Kashuk = MAC > E.L.F.
