In Lightroom Classic (v 11.1) there is a bug if the mouse / pointer size has been changed in System Preferences > Accessibility.  The brush size when using masks shows correctly when the pointer is over the right hand side panel. When using the brush over the image part of the window it shows much larger (depending on the accessibility setting) but it's effect on the mask is that of the smaller size. If the mask overlay is not turned on, it is not apparent what is happening - it looks like the brush is simply not working.

I used the accessibility setting as I use a very large, high-res screen and the pointer is so tiny it hard to see otherwise. I'm using a 2021 Macbook Pro M1-Max, 32GB, MacOs 12.1. The problem is persistent. The problem appears if I use and screen, including only the inbuilt screen.

I am not able to replicate this. 

 

Is it possible for you to record a video showing the issue you are facing and then post it here?

Here's a screen recording

The pointer size is set deliberately large in Accessibilty to show the problem

This has been an issue for a very long time and I think it affects both Mac and Windows.  I reported this several years ago and there have been several other threads on the issue.  The only solution as of now is to use the standard pointer size and use one of the other methods to see where the pointer is such as shake the pointer and it temporarily gets bigger on a Mac.
