      Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

      I heard great things about this brush however when I used it to apply my foundation it didn't blend. It left the finish cakey and patchy.

            Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

            It's not very good at blending in foundation you can still see brush streaks so I gave up and have to use my fingers to blend instead. You have to wash this product after each use as it feels and looks disgusting after one use, foundation clogs up the brush. Wouldn't recommend for the price

                    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.

                                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.

                                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!
