Sephora Pro Stippling Concealer Brush ($24) is a new concealer brush specifically for applying concealer under eyes. Fans of the Sephora Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush #57 will likely love this one especially if you use very concentrated, pigmented concealers.
I’ll admit I’m all about applying foundations and concealer with my fingers. But over the years I’ve discovered a few concealers brushes, like E.L.F.’s Concealer Brush and the Sephora #57, that I really love!
One thing to love about Sephora’s brush range is the fact that they are so well made. Sephora’s brushes rival MAC’s in my opinion with soft, shed-free bristles, sturdy handles, and they even come with their own protectors that snap on to protect the bristles of your brushes. Believe me when you have a ton of brushes you’ll be thankful for that little added protection!
The Sephora Pro Stippling Concealer Brush actually has two sides. One side has long bristles where as the other side (the front side) has shorter chopped slanted bristles. The longer bristles are ideal for swiping a thicker layer of concealer under eyes where as the short ones are perfect for sheering and thinning out that formula and giving it an airbrushed finish.
This brush is great but also dangerous. First let’s talk great though! If you’re using it with a very richly pigmented concealer (like It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye) this will thin out that creamy, emollient formula and blend it to a perfect finish. I find the brushes actually aids in keeping concealer crease free as it thins the consistency out so much that the coverage is flawless and second-skin like. This is fact where things get tricky.
If you’re using a less than pigmented, thinner concealer formula you could potentially sheer it out a little TOO much to the point your actually swiping color away. I used it with my Em the Great Cover Up Concealer and I actually over did things to a point that my puffiness was on display for all to see. This doesn’t typically happen as I love that concealer and it has just the right amount of pigment to keep things nice and covered up. But this brush did thin that formula out dramatically.
My recommendation? If you use very thick, very creamy, and very emoillent concealers pick up Sephora’s Pro Stippling Concealer Brush. But for thinner, creamier, hydrating, or sheerer concealers I wouldn’t use this to apply.
For those that use super pigmented concealers I’d highly recommend checking this brush out!
