        Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

        This is SUCH a great liquid foundation brush. Does a great job with creating an even, smooth finish and not emphasizing any texture or dryness. Prefer this to UD Optical Blurring brush and ELF Beautifully Bare Blending brush. Toss up between this and a sponge, but easier in the morning to not wet a sponge. I use it with Neutrogena Hydroboost skin tint, Ordinary serum foundation, MUFE Ultra HD, and No 7 Lift and Luminate

                      I hate cleaning brushes, so I kinda keep c using new ones until I run out. Recently, I got down to this brush and I LOVE it. It applies my foundation so flawlessly and it doesn't shed or leave behind stray hairs. Also, they clean really well and and don't break or the top doesn't come loose from the handle. I highly recommend this brush.

                          HI Maddi,

                          That literally is the exact combo I use and I love it. The Powder Brush is good if you want very light coverage, but if you're like me and want fuller, the Expert Face Brush is awesome for that.

                          Thanks!

                          A:

                          Hi Jen,

                          I love the Expert Face Brush for liquid foundation. Overall, I've found the rounded (non-angled) brush head is better for all over application. You are definitely spot on for that one! :)

                          For the blush brush, I actually have two favorites, depending on the look. If you want overall rosy cheeks, color that looks like a natural hue, the Real Techniques Blush Brush is amazing (http://www.ulta.com/blush-brush?productId=xlsImpprod3220067). The tapered head gives you control, but not too contoured.

                          However, if you want very precise application, like color over a contour, the Sculpting Brush you mentioned (http://www.ulta.com/sculpting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861065) is awesome.

                          Hope that helps!

                          HI Batwoman,

                          Great question! The Expert Face Brush is one of the most amazing brushes we make and can be used for just about anything! You could use it for tinted moisturizer, but I think that perhaps the bristles may be a bit too dense, and it might end up trapping the product in the bristles more than you would like. The Stippling Brush is a great alternative, based on how much more dispersed the bristles are.

                          You could also use our Foundation Brush - this is one that allows you to almost "paint" product onto your face, rather than buff in, and I think the cut and bristle type would work well with moisturizer. That item can be found here: http://www.ulta.com/foundation-brush?productId=xlsImpprod3220071

                          Thanks!

                          This is one of our most awesome and amazing brushes that we have in this line - it's actually our #1 selling Real Techniques brush!

                          The bristles themselves are dense and short, which gives you very targeted coverage (more medium to full).

                          If you're looking for light to medium coverage, the other brush I might recommend comes in our Flawless Base Set (it's the larger Buffing Brush). I actually use that brush every single day - I like it because its bristles are a bit longer and not as dense, which gives me the really natural look I like. You can find that kit here:

So, yes, you could use it for applying stick foundation.

                          Thanks!

                        Just wondering how dense this brush is. Sometimes brushes just push product around your face rather than blending it. I want to use this brush as a post-setting powder blender. Would it be good for that or do you have a better brush for that purpose? Thanks!

                        I'm looking for a brush to use with the Hourglass vanish foundation stick. Would this be a good option or is there another brush that isn't expensive but would be better?
