Not a fan

By Amber Dawn

About Me Brand Buyer

Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

The bristles in this brush are stiff and did not feel good on my face. It did not seem to blend my foundation at all, just smear it around in uneven patterns. It is very thin compared to other foundation/blurring brushes. RETURNED.

                This helps so much with getting an even application of foundation. The brush was stiff at first but softened up very fast and is a perfect shape for every area of the face.

                            Which is better for liquid foundation, the foundation brush or the expert face brush? What is the difference between the two?

                              A:

                              The Expert Face Brush Item #: 2244502 is for a lighter application of foundation and/or powder. The densely cut bristles and use of a "buffing" motion really push the foundation into the skin, leaving lighter coverage overall.

                              The angled cut of the Foundation Brush allows you not only to really get into the crevices of your skin, but it enables you to build the coverage that you need. The sweeping application also provides for more coverage than the Expert Face Brush since this brush wouldn't be used to buff the foundation/powder into the skin. Overall, this allows for more precise application of your foundations or powders.

                              Either brush can be used with liquid formulas!

                              Rather than this brush, which is designed for all over application and blending of foundation, we suggest using either Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush (Item #: 2283104) or Real Techniques Stippling Brush (Item #: 2230003) to contour and highlight for definition.

                            • Staff Expert

                              A:

                              There are several differences between the two foundation brushes. The brush that is sold on its own has a different bristle cut than the one in the Core Collection. This individually sold brush is cut on a bias, while the Core Collection brush is more tapered. Both allow you to reach the crevices in your face (around your nose, under your eyes, etc.) for maximum coverage. The individual brush has more bristles overall, which allows greater pick up and application of product. In terms of similarities, both brushes are made from the same cruelty-free bristles and both have the no-shed qualities that Real Techniques is known for!
