Comments about Real Techniques Stippling Brush:

I like this makeup brush very much, because I don't like getting makeup on my fingers. With this brush my makeup going on quickly, smoothly and without getting stuck in old pock marks. I would like to try the other brushes available.

          Applies really well. it may look streaky if you try to buff in circles rather than dab to blend. I just go back over my face with a sponge and it looks fab!

              Comments about Real Techniques Stippling Brush:

              I've never owned a stippling brush and was actually considering purchasing the MAC one (187 Duo Fibre), but then I came across this brush at my local Ulta store. I've had this for a month and it has been my go to brush (along with my Real Techniques beauty blender) for the application of my Foundation. With my finger, i spread the product on my face, not on the brush, and I start off by using the stippling motion all over my face first, especially where I have my larger pores. Then, I use small circular strokes all over my face for an airbrush finished look. This makes the foundation look amazing! It's also very easy to clean, I use my olive oil/Dawn soap mixture to wash it 1-2 times a week, depending on how many times I've used it, and it literally dries within a few hours! I also haven't seen any shredded hairs! Overall, I think it's a great brush for the price and I think everyone should have at least one stippling brush. They're also great for blending your contour.

              I LOVE THIS BRUSH. I CAN'T BELIEVE it has taken me so long to try. Always used cosmetic sponges to apply my foundation. It helps use less foundation and gives your face more of a natural look.

                    I bought this brush, as recommended by a makeup consultant as an alternative to a bare minerals brush. She suggested it as a cheaper alternative... which it is! However it is poor quality and the brush fibers are falling out, during cleaning and regular use. The brush does not apply liquids well as it advertises.

                        Stippling Brush has ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles that are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free. Its design allows you to build, buff, and blend to your desired level of coverage.

                        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.

                        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! :)

                        A:

                        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.
