MAC's Masterclass Brushes ($25 to $42; maccosmetics.com) may resemble the toothbrush in your bathroom, but boast more benefits for your makeup bag than your dental regimen. The innovative shapes allow for multiple uses, and claim a quick, seamless application. We asked InStyle.com Senior Beauty Editor Selene Milano to see how the Oval 6 brush fared for her complexion, while our Assistant Editor Marianne Mychaskiw tried out the Oval 3 and Linear 1 brushes on her eyes. Keep reading to see what they thought!

SELENE'S TAKE ON THE FACE BRUSH: "I used the Oval 6 brush with a rosy blush on the apples of my cheeks. Usually I have to wait for my foundation and concealer to fully set before applying powder blush, but this time I went for it right away. It smoothed on the color seamlessly, giving my face a much more natural effect. That, plus the bonus of shaving 5 minutes off of my morning routine—I'm a convert!"

MARIANNE'S TAKE ON THE EYE BRUSHES: "I wasn't quite sure how to use the Oval 3 and Linear 1 brushes at first, but once I got the hang of it, my eye makeup was perfectly applied in five seconds flat -- and not because of my blending skills. Since the Oval 3 brush perfectly covered my lids, it kept the shimmer from my eye shadow from falling onto my face, and the ultra-fine Linear 1 made applying gel eyeliner a lot easier. Its narrow shape allows you to press the product across your lash line to ensure even coverage, and also works wonders at filling in brows."
