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.


Dupes:
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.
