I've been more than happy with all the Sephora Professional brushes I've purchased so far and was keen to find a really good concealer brush. When I went to Sephora, looking for this brush, I couldn't find what I remembered seeing (DUH - write down the NUMBER, Mariella) - I found their newest flat concealer brush and also another one that looked about as dismal as the MAC 194 I bough years ago - long, floppy, useless bristles and a complete waste of money - so I didn't want to repeat THAT experience again. The only brush I could find that looked remotely like what I recalled seeing in the reviews was a cream shadow or maybe a crease brush. So I got the SA to help me and she found what I was looking for right away.
Let me just say that the 100% rating (after more than 20 reviews) is deserved. This brush will apply and blend just about any concealer for perfect results. I like that after I've applied and blended, I can go back with this little beauty and "stipple" more concealer right where my circles are darkest. This gives me the best of a seamless, blended application AND the coverage I need where my under-eye darkness is most pronounced.
This brush is very reasonably priced, compared to MAC's 224 (which I had been using from time to time but often enough that I considered buying a 2nd one so I could have one for eye shadow and one for concealer) and it is a really awesome brush. I very much like the clever "case" for protecting the brush head if you want to travel with this or put it in your purse, etc. My only "complaint" is now long the handle is. I'm short sighted so have to get up quite close to my mirror when I apply my makeup and this long handle (I think it's longer than on any other brush I own) makes it awkward. I'm thinking of getting my husband to cut it shorter.

I first heard of Sephora's Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush (#57) on MUA. My biggest beauty concern is my u/e area and although I've tried at least 25 HE & a few DS concealers in the past year alone, I still find myself struggling to get it right under the eyes. I know what a difference a good brush can make in re: to how well a product applies so I thought I'd give this brush a try specifically to use w/ my many u/e concealers. It has fast become my favorite concealer brush.
First of all, I love that it comes w/ a large plastic cap. Not your typical flimsy, throw-away, thin, plastic sleeve but a hard plastic case. It has a long, black wooden handle. The head of the brush if very full and thick w/ soft synthetic "hairs". Synthetic, not natural, is what you want in a concealer brush as natural hairs will pick up product (remove what you just applied) and synthetic will help distribute it w/out removing it. This is a very high quality brush. I have used it for 3 months now (cleaned it several times) and no hairs have fallen out. It cost me $24 and considering the quality of this brush, I think it's a bargain.
The fullness of the head of this concealer brush is unusual as it is much larger, fuller and basically "bushier" than a typical concealer brush. I think that's what helps produce the magic! This brush really makes a difference in how u/e concealer applies. I have found that I can now revisit some of the concealers that I tossed aside in the past because they caked up, creased or applied too heavily under my eyes and my results w/ them now, using the Sephora #57, are completely different. I seem to need less product (thus less "caking", creasing, etc.) w/ this brush yet I still get excellent coverage. I would say it produces an airbrushed effect. It also works well on other parts of the face but I mainly use it under my eyes.

I checked yes for repurchase because, well I own four already. I'm the person with blue veins under my eyes, without corrector and concealer I look tired and get constant comments. This is perfect for blending to perfection, I follow up with the #58 brush to tap on setting powder. Considering that I've remembered primer my concealer lasts all day.

I'm not surprised this brush rates so high, it's my HG concealer brush. It has synthetic bristles, but it's a really soft brush. It makes blending out concealer really easy! I use it to apply and blend out my under eye, and face concealer. It's easy to clean, and it dries very fast. You honestly can't go wrong with this brush! You will never buy another flat concealer brush again!

Believe all the good things people say about this brush. After reading glowing reviews here and at the Sephora website, I decided to give it a try. I have very dry, fine, slightly creppy skin under my eyes. I have a regular traditional concealer, but I never liked how it works. This brush is so soft and if you gently swirl it under your eyes, it applies concealer very smoothly and skin (even mature, dry skin like mine) looks much better. At $25 it's pricey, but so worth it. I'm so glad I got it.

Like many others here, I use this brush with MUFE Full Cover. It is an amazing brush. It blends in the concealer perfectly to achieve a truly airbrushed finish. I use it under my eyes, on blemishes, anywhere I need some perfecting. I have never found a better brush for thick concealers and I've tried a number of them. Before this brush, I only used good concealer when is knew I would be photographed because it took far too long to get them blended for every day use. Now, I use my Full Cover everyday and application is a breeze. No more dark circles!

An amazing concealer brush. I prefer using it on post acne hyperpigmentation. It works amazing with makeup forever full cover concealer and makes it look airbrushed. I have this brush in my collection to use with my fuller coverage concealers to make them look more natural looking and less severe. I've washed this brush several times and I've never encountered any shedding.

This brush is amazing!!! It's soft and dense. Although it is listed as a concealer brush, I love using this to contour my nose or to blend out my eyeshadows. It maybe too big for those jobs, but I feel like while you apply it, it also blends at the same time. Definitely would repurchase!

I love this brush, it is the best concealer brush I have ever owned. It is perfect for lightly buffing concealers into the under eye area without tugging or damaging the skin. I own a lot of brushes and they range in price from my $1-3 ELF brushes to mega high dollar Bhumi brushes, but I have to say that this and my ELF concealer brush are the only 2 that go anywhere near my under eye area. ELF has one that is similar in size that I use to set my concealer with HD under eye powder but the bristles on this Sephora brush are softer and better for buffing my concealer so I only use this one for that purpose.
