Sephora No 50 blush brush - 1This is a quick review of the Sephora Pro Flawless Light Powder Brush #50 ($38). Sometimes while testing products as Sephora, I’ve asked the makeup artists to borrow a brush. Each time that I’ve borrowed this Sephora #50, I’ve admired its easy of use and excellent results. For example, I’ve used it with Laura Mercier’s Ritual Baked Bronzer ($36), and loved, loved, loved the results.

Sephora Buffing Brush1

Sephora’s Mineral Powder Brush #45 ($24) is a well-priced brush that does well with powder foundations. Although the brush is designed to work with mineral foundations, I found that the shape and buffing ability worked well with non-mineral, standard powder foundations as well.

Sometimes I’m not sure how to apply my pressed powder foundations.  The sponge gives me great coverage but a dense, dry look.  Loose powder brushes don’t seem to give me enough coverage, depending on the one that I’m working with. This brush gives me a good balance–the soft duo-fiber bristles allow me to buff the product into my skin without depositing too much.  Yet the density and firmness of the bristles allow me to build up coverage easily.

I used this brush with a few of my pressed powder foundations, including Dolce & Gabanna The Foundation Perfect Finish, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, and Chanel Vitalumiere Eclat (reviewed here/ not sold in the U.S.).  I got very good results using the brush-it gave me good control over the application, and the product could be buffed in very well to eliminate an overly-powdery look. The construction seems solid, and the dry time is average.  I ran into no problems cleaning it.

Overall, I was quite happy with the Sephora’s Mineral Powder Brush #45. At $24, it’s well worth a look.
