      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      It's nice, but I found that I'm not using it for what I intended to use it for. I wanted something for full coverage foundation, but for me I found that it's better for my powder application after foundation. I still like it though

          I love this brush. I'm old school when it comes to applying my foundation. I usually warm the product up with my hands and apply to my face like lotion. That works for me, it gives me an even smooth finish. Just recently I switched my foundation from Dior to Estee Lauder for the winter. Estee lauder suggest to use a brush when applying their foundation. Looking for a cheaper version of a expert brush I ran across this one and I'm so glad I decided to get it. It works great. It blends great with all over even coverage. I definitely will be ordering again.

                      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!

                      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!
