                  I bought this to do my contouring. The young lady behind the counter suggested to use it. I don't like it at all.
                  It rubs off my contour and foundation (I don't use a heavy hand). I have several high end and budget contours, both cream and powder that I have tried to use this brush with. I will find a use for it eventually, but not a fan right now.

                    I bought this brush on the recommendation by the Ulta associate and my roommate. I always thought it would use more product to use a brush, I always applied with my fingers. No more! I love using the brush, my make-up looks smoother and not as heavy as when I used my fingers, I was really happy to see the result. It is so easy, just a few soft strokes and it blends very well. I think this will also work very well with powder foundation. At this price you can't go wrong to give it a try.

                            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:

                          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!

                            Hi Maddy,

                            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! And one of the main reasons why is because it is so multi-functional. Not only can you use it for foundation, blush, etc, but it is one of the best blending brushes we have. So, yes, you could use it for applying cream blush.

                            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!
