You're pressing and holding the disclosure triangle bottom right of the Brush tool icon in the toolbar? I don't know what workspace you're in. Graphic and Web, for instance, will have placed the Mixer Brush into the Tool drawer to get it out of the way.

If you click and hold on disclosure triangle beside the 3 dots just above the Swatch proxies in the Toolbar panel, you should open a list that says Edit Toolbar at the top of the list. It will also have all the tools NOT included in the Toolbar and you can click on the Mixer Brush if it's in that list. It will appear in place of the the 3 dots, and still have the disclosure triangle.

If you have found the Mixer brush in that menu and want to always have it available, click on the Edit Toolbar command and drag it from the Extra tools section into the Toolbar section.

If you still can't find the Mixer Brush, for instance even when you've chosen the Painting workspace, let us know what OS you're running and whether or not you have recently deleted your old preferences and set new ones. And here's a list of a whole lot of bits to read if you aren't used to resetting prefs or tools, etc.
