Questions & Answers for SEPHORA COLLECTION Classic Mineral Powder Brush #45

good for liquid formulas?
I prefer light coverage foundations (currently YSL touche eclat or Nars sheer glow). I was recommended this brush for my liquids. But I noticed it says it is made for mineral powders. Is there anyone who uses this for sheer liquids and how does it work? Thanks!!! :)

It works great. I don't like to feel or wear a lot of make up and this gives you the ability to go light or build layers if you need to

I use this brush for liquids: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and Shiseido BB cream. It works great! The brush is super soft and leaves a really natural finish! I also wash mine at least twice a week. I've had it for a few months now and so far no shedding!

I use it for Urban Decay's Naked liquid foundation and it works well. I pat it onto the foundation I squirted out to get a little on the brush and work it around my face. It makes for an airbrushed look.

The brush works well for liquid foundations but I would highly recommend you dot the foundation onto your face with your fingers and then use the brush to buff/blend it in, so that you don't end up losing a lot of product into the brush. If you want a really terrific brush for liquid foundation, I would suggest either the Sephora #55 or 56 (the 56 is a bit smaller, which I prefer as I find it gives me better control and reaches into the corners of my nose better than the larger #55). Or try the Shiseido foundation brush - that one is the best I've ever used!

I would not recommend this for liquid foundations. Moisture might get inside brush and would lead to bristles falling out. Get a brush that is meant for liquids. I recommend the SEPHORA COLLECTION
Classic Must Have Foundation Brush #10. Same price, same company, just meant for your liquids :) LINK:

I use this brush for Stick Foundation But, I will be trying it with liquid as well. I am sure I'll get the same effects. This brush is amazing.
You won't be sorry if you buy it.

Hi Wintery,

This brush will work great for liquid products. It is made with synthetic fibers that will allow the foundation to go on smoothly.

Yes, this brush is appropriate for both. It's a fairly small head, so it works well for blush as well as all over application of powder.

Personally I use it with blush. It does a good job of really buffing it out and blending. It also works alright with powder foundation, however for products like that, I prefer a larger fluffier brush.

aside from the plastic packaging there is no cover for this brush. I have my makeup brushes stored in a separate cosmetics pouch but you can always count on pinterest for nifty ideas on how to store your brushes
