I have been online stalking the Sephora Collection Pro Airbrush Perfector #51 for about a year, and didn't purchase it until now principally because I already had more than enough multipurpose foundation and blending brushes, but I kept returning to this one because it really resonated with me. I love that the brush itself is quite compact, it measure a little under 4" inches in length, and that it comes with its own plastic case to protect it while traveling. In fact, between its compact size and plastic case, it is the perfect travel companion.
This brush has densely packed cruelty-free synthetic bristles with a beveled edge, making it a perfect blender brush that can efficiently get into hard-to-reach places. The bristles are soft, but not so soft as to be ineffective. It picks up, lays down and blends out products to perfection, and it truly does achieve an airbrush finish– as the name suggests. It can be used to apply foundation, bronzer, highlighter and finishing powder, and I have found that it works equally well with cream, liquid, and powder formulas. That said, I tend to use it the most to apply foundation, and because the bristles are synthetic it does not waste foundation by unwanted absorption. The dense plastic handle is comfortable in the hand, and the brush is quite well-balanced and user-friendly.
According to Sephora,

A multi-use, multi-formula precision brush that can be used all over the face to achieve flawless results. This brush allows you to apply any of your complexion products from foundation to contour products to highlighter and blush. It's the perfect universal complexion brush that fits in your makeup bag. It can be used with creams, liquids, powders, and translucent powder formulas.
This product is not tested on animals.
Suggested Usage: Place product on one side of the brush. Blend in one direction for fuller coverage. Use the clean side to buff off any excess product or sheer out coverage. To use as a contour brush: Place product on half of the tip of the brush and blend in an angular motion in one direction. Can also be used to apply bronzer our highlighter to décolleté.
Note the extent to which the bristles are densely packed.
Overall Assessment: I love this brush, and the only regret that I have is waiting so long to buy it.

    1. Hi Lynne! Happy holidays! I had this brush in my shopping cart for so long. A couple of tims I saw it in store, and when I went back to get it it was out-of-stock. I finally decided to get it, and I am so glad that I did. I share your love of densely packed brushes for foundation, and this one is a delight to use!

    1. Oh, Allison I am so obsessed with this brush. I had wanted it for so long. I never saw anyone blogger reviews, I just discovered it cruising around the Sephora website and loved the way that it looked and had to try it. I am so glad that I did. It is a wonderful multipurpose brush worthy of your attention! I highly recommend it!
