Hey girls!

I'm getting tired of using a regular foundation brush to apply my makeup and think I may better like the result of using a Stippling Brush.

Any favorites you have?

I saw a Sonia Kashuk Highlighting brush at Target that looked like I MAY be able to use for stippling but the reviews for it aren't that great on MUA...

I think Sonia Kashuk is a popular choice for a drugstore stippling brush.

For everyone who voted the M.A.C 187, do you have a problem with the brush shedding? I have the 188 because the 187 looked too big...I love the job it does but it sheds soooooo much!

It does here and there, but not excessively so.

The 187 is the softest/springiest, so it gets my vote also. But my issue isn't shedding, it's bleeding. Ever since I used Michelle Pham's cleaning method (antibacterial dishwashing liq. and evoo), all my black haired brushes can't stop bleeding!!! GRRRR!

I have to vote for the 187 too. It's just that it's the only stippling brush I've ever used. I like it. It does shed a bit but nothing horrible or excessive. I just never liked the feel or look of my foundation when applied with a foundation brush.

Same here! I used the michelle phan method with the olive oil and soap and now the tips of my "skunk brush" are now black

I love the MAC 187 but I also love my Sigma SS187 brush as a cheaper alternative and though it's less dense, it still works pretty well. I think it's 16 bucks

Bumping bump bump !!

Any other suggestions ?

I've started using a Sephora stippling brush (finally remembered i did have a stippling brush in my stash ) to apply my foundation. Super easy, super quick, love the results but OMG ! It's everything but soft, my skin almost feels itchy after using it. I really wonder what i'm going to do with this, i don't like it to apply powder on my face, it's too hard for foundation, i would say it's a waste of money but luckily i bought it for really cheap. It's easy to clean, although i did squirt some black colorant when washing mine (which to me isn't a good sign of quality).

I love the Sigma F15 - It is an exact dupe of the MAC 187 for only $16.00 and mine sheds a LOT less than the MAC one.

I only have one stippling brush and I am in love with it It is the Sigma F80 which is a unique brush (meaning it is not a dupe for any MAC brush), it is very soft and dense and does not shade at all. I have used it with liquid foundation manly and it gives a very natural finish but I have also experimented with mineral foundation and it works as well.

Really? It's not the one with the silver bottom one, is it? I'm guessing not, since you bought it super cheap :P
I use the Sephora one with the silver bottom, (Their Professionnel collection, or whatever) and I have to say, I love the results! It's so soft, and applies just so easy. I haven't tried the MAC one ever, and it's the only stippling brush I've ever had... but I really do love it!

Actually, it's this one. The salesperson who ordered the brushes made a mistake and consequently the store had so many of these brushes they decided to get rid of them by selling them for 1€ each.


Thanks for the suggestions, i'll definitely check out the Sigma brushes

Has anyone tried the stippling brush sold by Coastal Scents ?

I really like the Target Studio Tools Stippling Brush.  It was $6.99 and makes my foundation look flawless!  I bought 2 of them and had them for about a year now and they're still in great shape.  Plus when I bought them they were 1.99 each!

Also a update on this.

 

I purchased the Etude House Duo-Fibre brush and I LOVE it.

 

The brush is crazy thick. The handle is shorter than I thought it would be and the bristles are WAY denser than I could've imagined. Great for stippling, but I still need to practice my technique to get it down.

 

Is there any Youtube vid that any of you watched to teach yourselves to stipple?
