          I was looking for a new foundation brush and this one is great! It's really soft and really stretches out my foundation's coverage.

                Not a makeup but it helps blend the base for an even covering. It is not too soft or to stiff. I have used more expensive brushes and this one is just as good.

                        This brush defines my cheek bones and nose just right! I like being able to make the definition "skinny" or "fat" depending on the angle I use on the brush. It's also got a great texture and seems to hold my powder well.

                        Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

                        I love this brush so much. I love it for foundation but best of all under eye concealer. It fit well in all of the corners, etc. I would say that because it is so flat, it gets dirty very very quickly and when it is dirty, it doesn't alpply product as well but overall great

                          I use this brush for putting on my foundation everyday, and it is amazing. I'm not usually someone who shells out the cash for the expensive name brand products, but I was having difficulty finding a good foundation brush. This one is perfect, it does not shed, it provides light to medium and full coverage if you want it. No complaints whatsoever, I highly recommend!

                                  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.

                                what is the difference between this foundation brush and the foundation brush from the core collections set?

                                  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!
