              This was the first time I have used a brush to apply foundation and I love this one. I have bought this brand as my blush brush so figured I would give it a try and I am not disappointed.
              It applies evenly, no streaks and the brush is soft so you don't get the "itchy feel" you sometimes do with 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:

                      When using with liquid foundation will this give you a more light to medium coverage? Or a medium to full coverage? Like are the bristles really stiff or fluffy at the top?

                    • 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!

                        I think you will really like the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. This brush is perfect with all different kinds of foundation types: sticks, creams, liquids, mousses, etc. And the great thing about Real Techniques brushes is that you don't have to pay a lot of money to get a truly awesome brush that will serve you well!

                        Hope that helps!

                        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!
