This is the only brush that does not make my face sting and turn red when applying MMU with it. Über-soft. Synthetic hair is easier to clean than natural and it dries quickly.
This is hands down, the best brush for liquid or cream foundations. It gives a flawless finish that can be built up to full coverage if used properly. I'm not sure why so many negative reviews, but perhaps they don't know how to use it!
This brush is great if you want a super light finish and already have great looking skin. It also works well with powders as well. Doesn't shed and is a good quality brush. I'd save your money and get the Sephora #56 brush because it is an all around better brush.
I love this brush!! I use it for foundation and powder. It gets the job done and I have no complaints. I will repurchase.
I have the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Airbrush #55, with a black handle.
It is not a fluffy powder brush, more of a hybrid of a common powder and blending powder brush. I use it for applying both loose and pressed powder on top of my liquid foundation. I think I read somewhere it should be used with liquid primary. I like how it blends the powder seamlessly into my foundation making any previous notable pores non-notable. I really hope that the quality of the ferrule is good, since the price of the brush is pretty high, because the brush, to me, doesn't have an expensive look and feel.
- blends powder into liquid nicely
- makes the foundation look seamless (I have uneven skin: acne and acne scars, large/r pores)
- super soft bristles
- to me, not a too luxurious feel for the price (ferrule looks cheap)
I would recommend to a friend.
I put a "yes" for "If you ran out or lost this product would you buy it again?" but it is more a "maybe". If it lasts more than 7 yrs, I would buy it again. If it doesn't, the price is not worth the investment.
HG!! It makes MAC studio fix powder + foundation look very smooth and natural, not cake-y or powdery at all! I thought that was amazing since its hard (at least for me) to achieve a natural look with that product... Anyway back to the brush, it's a little pricey, but (very) well worth it! I've used it to apply sun screen, bronzer, blush.. flawless finish every time!! I have yet to apply liquid foundation with it, but like I've mentioned I've used it for sunscreen and it left my skin looking nice and better than when I apply it with my hands... This is a brush that everyone should invest in, well if you like looking natural and flawless! it also does wonders for blending :D
A fabulous brush. Here's how I use it:
Dab foundation in a thin layer on my cheeks with a flat foundation brush or fingers. Swirl and buff with this brush from the cheeks out until it's all blended in. Or I do what the reviewer below me does, and put a dab on the back of my hand, dab this brush in it and buff and swirl over my face. Perfection!
I prefer this over the MAC skunk stippling brush as it has never shed on me. The bristles are soft and dense and it also washes clean very easily.
I took one lippy off overall because this brush is expensive! I did get it as a present though :) Recommend and would buy again, although I doubt I'll need to because of its superb quality.
Very pricey, but well worth the money. This is the best foundation brush I've ever used. The bristles are very soft and no shedding at all. I put a little foundation on the back of my hand, dab the brush in it and buff it into my skin in a light swirling motion and it blends into my skin so nice. No streaks like flat foundation brushes leave behind. I consider this brush a good investment and highly recommend it. Well worth the money I paid.
The first time I tried this brush I didn't get it and returned it; it felt too floppy and my foundation didn't look that great. Well, I just repurchased it after an Sephora MUA used it on me and I finally understood how to use it correctly! I dab foundation on my cheeks and T zone or I dip the brush into a little bit of product and ever-ever-ever so lightly swirl the brush on the surface of my skin and swirl and swirl away until my skin truly looks air-brushed. Takes a bit of practice to get the correct pressure but once you do, it is an amazing tool for liquid foundation and buffs product into flawless perfection. Softest bristles ever. Love it and glad I finally learned to use it properly!
I'm glad i bought this on sale because this didnt work too well for me. If u r heavy handed like me this might not work for u as well. For liquids, a more dense brush work better if u want a more sheer and light application. The bristles on the #55 is too long and floppy that it makes it hard for me to achieve a defused application. For powders, i prefer a fluffy brush, this does apply blushes well. If u want a brush to apply a light dusting of powder, this is great for this. But if you prefer a brush to hold more powder, this will does not. Sometimes i like to apply my mac blot powder a bit heavier depending on the foundation im using. I cant use this brush for that because it will not pick a lot of powder. Many prefer brushes that dont pick up a lot of product, this brush will do just that. Overall, its a decent brush, i love how it dries faster than some fthe synthetic brushes i had in the past which took forever to dry. Bristles are soft, handle feels good. I was just a bit disappointed because i purchased this because i heard it was excellent for foundations and i didnt intend to buy another powder brush. The #56 brush however is denser and is excellent for liquid foundations and cream products which is what i expected the #55 was for.
