        This brush was recommended as an alternative to the more expensive brush to apply foundation. Works great, I use less foundation per application, and looks natural.

        This doesn't last longer than 6 months. All the bristles have fallen out. I suggest buying a better quality product

        Comments about Real Techniques Stippling Brush:

        Love the brush. Blends my makeup and concealer flawlessly, but you can't clean it. The bristles will start to shed, then after second cleaning all the bristles will fall out. Too expensive to keep replacins, so I won't be purchasing anymore after 3 brushes.

                I use this brush for blush application, and it never picks up too much product and gives me a nice, even glow. Love it! Also, easy to clean and love that the ferrule is long so it's harder to damage the brush with water.

                Comments about Real Techniques Stippling Brush:

                I like the size of this brush and how it applies and blends light-medium coverage liquid foundation. The one drawback would be how much makeup is absorbed into the brush. I feel like more product ends up in the bristles than on my face, which I feel like uses more and I don't like, especially for expensive foundation.

                    A:

                    When switching in between product "forms" (such as liquid and powder), we recommend cleaning your brush to prevent any glazing effect on the powder product, and also to ensure that the products apply smoothly to your skin without any build-up on the bristles.

                    A:

                    Yes, this brush can be used to apply, buff, and blend all types of makeup, including powder (both pressed and loose), liquid, and cream foundations, as well as powder and cream blushes. It does not have a mattifying effect, as this has more to do with the product you're applying rather than the applicator you're using.

                    A:

                    Yes, the Stippling Brush is designed to give you more coverage due to the densely packed bristles and narrower brush head. It provides more targeted application and will use more product. The powder brush disperses product more broadly and is meant to give you a more natural finish.

                    A:

                    Both brushes can be used to apply liquid foundation. The Expert Face Brush has denser bristles, so you will get a more matte application overall than you will with the Stippling.

                • Q:

                  Could this brush be used with the bare minerals bareskin serum? Or with any liquid foundation? I'm trying to find a brush for liquid foundation that is cheap and won't leave the makeup streaky. I need a medium to full coverage without looking cakey! Since I have oily/combination skin I need something that won't clog pores as well.
                  -Thanks! :)

                    Yes, this brush would work well to apply bareMinerals bareSkin Foundation and any liquid foundation! This brush actually can be used to apply all types of makeup including powder, liquid, and cream foundations, as well as powder and cream blushes. It provides airbrushed, high-definition results.

                    With bareSkin, apply 4 drops for medium coverage and 6 drops for full coverage. bareSkin is also oil-free, non-comedogenic, and great for all skin types including oily/combination skin.
