Pro Stippling Brush #44


Pro Stippling Brush #44

What it is:This brush blends face products-wet or dry-into the skin for a flawless finish.What it does:Synthetic fibers extend past the goat hairs to pick up two layers of product, which translates into a satiny appearance. The compact bristle packing gives ultimate control, too. The two levels of bristles let you layer product beautifully-and determine how sheer or heavy you want your coverage to be. The synthetic taklon hairs allow you to use it with wet or creamy products, like compact foundation.

Blush is all I ever use with this brush. I feel like the flat top is more precise than a rounded top brush.

It works lovely for powdered bronzer, so I would say yes to blush. It's very soft and gentle and follows the hollows of my cheeks perfectly. Also, the brush head is about 1 inch in diameter, so you can be really directional with your strokes :)

You can certainly use this for blush or bronzer, but it'll work best with a cream blush, brozer, or highligher product. This brush is designed to pick up less product and distribute it evenly. Typically, if you are buying a high quality powder blush that is finely milled (like Nars blushes), then you really don't need a stippling brush cause a regular blush brush will pick up the right amount of product. So this brush is most useful when applying a product that could end up being too pigemented or heavy is applied with fingertips or a regular brush.

It works just as well but if you want more vibrant colors and more layers, I don't recommend using this brush. The stippling brush applies blush lightly compared to a regular blush brush.

I don't know, I haven't used it for blush. You probably could use it for blush since the brush is very versatile. You can probably use this to apply cream blush as well. I think this much easier to work with than the flat foundation brush. It is easier to use and applies an airbrushed finish to your skin!

t depends on how much foundation/powder you use. During the day I only go over my face once for a light coverage, and at night I try to use a little more foundation and it will still give me an even application. Hope this helped!

It depends on what you use it with. If you apply powders with it, it'll be a lighter coverage because it picks up less product. But if you use liquid foundation you can chose what coverage you want. I find that one coat of liquid foundation with put a light coverage, 2 coats will put a medium, and 3 and up will leave a great heavy finish if that's what you want. It never made my face Cakey no matter how much coats I applied. Great brush!

Question
How does this compare to the Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #55?
I am using MUFE Foundation and I am trying to choose between this stippling brush #44 and Platinum Air Brush #55. I am looking for an airbrushed, medium coverage. I asked two different sephora representatives. One really praised the stippling brush for a flawless look and the other one said the platinum airbrush was better and that the stippling brush provided sheer coverage. Any help would be appreciated!

The Air Brush #55: makeup stays on the bristles so you get more coverage and less makeup loss. It's very soft, yet sturdy so you get an even coverage of the amount of makeup you choose.
The stippling brush: It smells. The bristles fall out. The two layers make makeup lost in the brush. The top layer is hard but flimsy. It's hard to maneuver through your face.

I find a stippling brush better for a more liquid foundation. While I had issues with the stippling brush (never tried it with powder products) the $55 is ridiculously awesome at applying compact foundation. While I have one that is still ike new after at least 3 months of daily use, it is in tip top condition. I want a second based simply on the performance of my precious #55.

This Stippling Brush #44 is going to offer very sheer coverage. I would imagine that for foundation you would want more coverage than what this brush will offer for you. This brush is excellent for applying cream blush, bronzer, or highlighter. Or if you were using a very creamy foundation and wanted to make it be sheer coverage, instead of dense coverage. I would suggest that you go with the other brush and not this one.

I think the stippling brush works just as well. I told the Sephora Beauty Consultant that I wanted an airbrushed look and that this is the one she recommnded to me. You can always return the brush if it doesn't work out. She said the stippling brush gave a medium coverage to skin.

I use the stippling brush to dust loose powder around my face and set my makeup. Because the white bristles are not densely packed, they will pick up just a light amount of powder. I swirl them lightly, in a circular motion, over my foundation and blush. It gives an airbrushed, poreless finish - the best ever.

I use this for my tinted moisturizer-it gives much better coverage than using fingers. i dip just the tips of the white bristles into the foundation, then pat it onto my skin. then i swirl it over my skin to set. it leaves a great finish.

I've never used that particular MAC brush, but I love this one. It's soft, easy to clean, and I haven't noticed any shedding yet. I have heard that the MAC brush is a bit firmer, so if you're looking for a firm bristled brush, this one isn't for you.

I have never felt how firm the MAC 187 is, but I would it imagine being firmer than this one. It depends on how much control you want. I bought this instead of the MAC and use it on a daily and have never had an issues.

i have both and I HATE the mac 187.. it sheds like crazy, is flimsier, and streaks. I use revlon colorstay as my daily foundation which has a thick consistency since it does not blend well ive gotta work really fast before it dries out on me.. let me tell you, it does compare with sephoras stippling brush. Ive been using the 44 every single day and now use my 187 for blushes
Sephora stippling: Sturdier, does not shed when washed/when applying foundation. does not streak. flawless finish.fuller than 187
mac 187: sheds when washing, thinner, flimsier, sheds when applying.. hope that helped

while i can't speak for the quality of this brush as i don't personally use it, the style is however exactly the same. you have half goat hair (natural bristles) and half synthetic. i do find with my MAC 187, that is sheds pretty consistently , so why not grab this and give it a try? i've found sephora prof. plat. brushes to be very good quality.

Question
can i use this brush with mufe microfinish powder?
Most people are saying that you'd use this brush if you want a lighter coverage because it picks up less product. I use only a little bit of the mufe powder so I was wondering if this brush would be good to use with it. And can it be used with other loose powder products? Or is it better to only use this brush with liquid and creamy products?

YES. It is *perfect* for loose powders - it is the only thing I use it for. It's just what you need for bronzers and finishing powders, since the bristles are not dense and are soft. They distribute a light layer of powder, and you can swirl the bristles around to provide a poreless finish.

I've only every used this brush with liquid foundation, but I don't think it would work very well with dry products. I also use the MUFE microfinish powder. I used it with a regular powder brush at first and didn't like it, so I bought the MUFE Kabuki brush--great investment. Tap a little powder out into the lid, then swirl, tap and buff (hate Bare Minerals products, but love their application method)! This gives me the most perfect soft, smooth finish!

Yes I think it would. Esp if you want to layer it on bit by bit until you get the right amount. because the brush is varied in it's thickness it helps in applying a light amount at a time.

I would recommend using a daily brush cleaner (Sephora sells this) if you're just using powder, however it is good to deep clean your brushes once a week (if you use it often). Some people like to apply foundation with this brush. If you use any liquid or water-based products, you MUST wash your brushes before using it again. So if you used this brush to apply foundation, you must wash it again before using it tomorrow or the next time. Bacteria does build up faster on liquid-based products on brushes.

There are also brush shampoo for deep cleaning for brushes (Sephora also sells this). A cheaper way to clean is to use extra virgin olive oil and baby shampoo (or antibacterial dish soap). Even professionals use these methods. The extra virgin olive oil is AMAZING! It takes anything off and does a better job of cleaning and conditioning than the brush cleaner from the stores. Please do NOT use any other kind of oil, it will ruin your brushes!

1. Wet the bristles
2. Apply brush shampoo
3. In circular motion, brush the stippling brush into the shampoo
4. Rinse
5. Squeeze out water gently or wipe with towel
6. Lay flat to dry (or I recommend getting the Brush Guard for easy drying)

For once a week cleansing, try our Sephora Brush Shampoo.
Specifically formulated to extend the life and beauty of your makeup brushes by gently removing makeup residue and build up, this simple, three-step brush cleaner is a must have.
To use: Spray cleanser directly onto the brush, then gently wipe the brush onto a cotton cloth or tissue to remove residue. Rinse with tepid water. Squeeze out excess water, reshape brush, and dry flat overnight.
For daily cleansing (if used with foundation or cream based products) try our Sephora Make Up Brush Cleansing Wipes.
Each of these super-soft towelettes is saturated with a quick-drying brush cleaner that removes all traces of oil and residue from both natural and synthetic makeup brushes.
To use: Remove one towelette. Gently unfold and place the towelette across the palm of your hand. In a sweeping motion, gently glide the brush back and forth across the cloth with the bristle grain until no traces of residue remain. Allow to dry for 1-3 minutes.
