      I use this brush for liquid applications, so far loving it. Applys even coverage without having to use tons of makeup. So far bristles are staying in place.

                          Hi Jordan,

                          Yes, our brand is cruelty free. We do not use any animal hair/natural hair for our brush bristles. They are a high quality synthetic called taklon and we believe they actually work even better than animal hair, so bonus! :)

                          Thanks.

                          Hi Tasnim,

                          I think the Expert Face Brush would be great with BareMinerals powder. A bit part of the application of the powder is the buffing and blending, which this brush is *perfect* for.

                          Hope that helps!

                          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:

                          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 in how you use it, but also the products you can use it with.

                          I think this would be an amazing brush for the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation. 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:

                          Hi Vanessa

                          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 stick foundation.
