    I have other brushes from then that are amazing especially for the price unfortunately the bristles of this brush fallout! I'm hoping I just got a bad brush out of the batch! I still would recommend this brand considering my overall experience has been positive

              I bought this and a few others of the same brand as starter brushes. They are actually decent brushes that are soft, blend well, give a natural look. Brush has not lost bristles at all. Clean well. Good deal and quality for the price. I pay quite a bit for some of my top performing brushes.

                        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!

                        Hi NEwbie,

                        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:

                    • Q:

                      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!

                        One other brush that I *love* when I'm doing contouring or blush is our Real Techniques Sculpting Brush (http://www.ulta.com/sculpting-brush?productId=xlsImpprod11861065). The bristles on this brush are very similar to the Expert Face brush, but I love how they are cut at an angle, so you can really work to highlight and enhance your cheekbones.

                        Either way, I think you will be happy with the brush's performance!

                        Thanks!

                        A:

                        Hi Champagnemelii,

                        Awesome question! Cleaning your brushes is so important to keep them in good quality, and to keep getting the performance you want out of them.

                        I'm slightly obsessive when it comes to cleaning my brushes. For the ones I use daily, I clean them every week. For the ones I use not as often (like my eye brushes, or if I don't do contouring regularly), I clean them every 3-4 weeks, depending on use.

                        Basically, it depends on how often you use your brushes and how much product you use on them. I'm pretty heavy on foundation, concealer, powder and blush - so those 4-5 brushes, I clean a lot.

                        If you have a sponge, like our Miracle Complexion Sponge, you want to clean that every week, even if you're not using it a lot. You also want to replace it every 60-90 days.

                        We have two great cleansers: the first is from Real Techniques and it's a more heavy-duty cleanser for those brushes you use a lot. You can find it here: http://www.ulta.com/deep-cleansing-gel?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                        We also have a cleanser from our sister brand, EcoTools, that's a bit gentler and has more eco-friendly ingredients (I use this one all the time): http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085&sku=2297645&_requestid=543623

                        EcoTools also makes these cool makeup wipes for in-between your deep cleans. You can find that here: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-cloths?productId=xlsImpprod13731033

                        Hope all that helps!
