    Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

    I've never had a brush for foundation and didn't want to spend as much as some of the ones recommended to me by friends. The associate at the store recommended this one to me that she also uses. I use Maybelline and Revlon (I think) liquid foundation and this brush makes it go on like a dream. Looks amazing. Cleans great. I'm in love.

      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      I really liked this brush. The bristles are soft and dense. It works amazingly on BB Creams, tinted moisturizers and light coverage liquid foundation. It helps to build up great coverage so if your foundation is too thick it may result in a bit thicker consistency that expected. For example, I used it with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and the final result was a little bit masky and heavy, so I recommend it better for lighter coverage products in order to get a natural and fresh appearance with great coverage. The brush is a bit small so you have to work with it but that also helps to work on details.

      • Works Wonders With Nars

      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      I use this brush with my NARS sheer matte foundation in Serbia (Light 01). I researche what was best to apply my specific foundation, and was referred to this brush or a beauty blender. I personally did not like the beauty blender and opted for the brush. It's great, soft and blends perfectly for a "not even there" look, which I like for my extremely fair, sensitive, combo skin. I get dry patches and oily spots, I also have red spots and this brush helps apply foundation in equal amounts across my face without clinging to dry patches or leaving excess product in oily places.

                I put a little foundation on the underside of my wrist, dab this brush into the base, then swirl it on my face. It deposits the perfect amount of foundation and the bristles don't irritate my sensitive skin. I love this brush and would buy more from their line.

                    A:

                    The Expert Face Brush that is sold individually has much shorter bristles, and more bristles overall. This enables the brush to "grab onto" the product and buff it into the skin. The foundation brush is thinner, not as many bristles and is more angled, for more precise application specifically around the nose and chin. They both can be used for product application, but if you’re looking for a bit more coverage, the Expert Face Brush will probably work a bit better.

                  How does this brush compare to the Real Techniques "Buffing brush" that comes as part of the "Sam's Picks" brush set? What are the similarities and differences? The "buffing brush" was recommended for applying BareSkin serum foundation, and I am wondering how this brush would be different in it's application.

                    A:

                    This brush features firmer, more densely packed bristles than the Buffing Brush, which makes it ideal for liquid/cream formula application, while the Buffing Brush works best for loose/pressed powder application. Expert Face Brush is more suitable for application of bareSkin Foundation than Buffing Brush.

                    This brush is designed to apply and blend liquid and cream makeup formulas including BB and CC creams. It is easy to use and very versatile, so we would say, yes, it is great for beginners! Feel free to watch Real Techniques founder and makeup artist Sam Chapman's tutorial video here:
                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVoRVmwKwo8

                    We recommend cleaning your brushes at least once weekly (more often if you have acne-prone skin). Use a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo, and work into the bristles to create a lather with cool water. Rinse until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also spritz your brushes with brush cleaner spray in between uses to keep them clean in between shampoos.
