    Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

    Love this brush. It's my new go-to foundation brush. It's perfect for buffing out liquid or cream foundation and it's shaped well for fitting the under eye area for concealer too. Not the softest brush but definitely a good low cost alternative to high-end brushes that does an amazing job.

          Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

          This brush is great, I've used it with both cream & liquid foundations. It blends like a dream & despite being firm the bristles are super soft. I will just recommend you give yourself plenty of time between washing & your next use. The bristles are very dense so you need to allow plenty of drying time.

          Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

          I used to wear makeup every day while in high school, then I kind of stopped as I got older. I recently started again, and needed a foundation brush. I went to Ulta, and this brush was suggested to me. I absolutely love this brush! It's soft, it gives you an airbrushed look, easy to clean, cruelty free, and the price can't be beat! I highly suggest these to everyone!

            I've used Bare Minerals foundation and their brushes for years and only tried this brush to save a little money this time. I actually needed 2 (one for home and one for my purse) but I only bought 1 at first to see if I liked it. I'm very glad I tried this brush! This is really soft so it feels very nice on my face. It has dense bristles so it spreads my mineral foundation smoothly, evenly and exactly how I personally like it. So far it hasn't shed at all. I liked the brushes I used before just fine but now I realize they were kind of scratchy and they were always shedding, even when new. My only "complaint" is that the brush is a little longer than I am used to so it doesn't easily fit in my current purse make-up bag, but I will just by a slightly larger one to accommodate this brush!

              Works great, blends seamlessly, have had it for about a month and hasn't shed after almost daily washing at all yet.

                Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

                I have been using this brush for over 2 months now and can honestly say that is a must have for everyone. It is easy to use and even better the hairs on the brush do not shred. Gives a flawless, streak free finish. Anyone can use this and that is the the beauty of it. I also liked the handle at the bottom as it makes it easier to stand the brush up. The brush allows a good grip and control when applying make up. Overall this is a high quality brush for a very good price point.

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    The Expert Face Brush is for a lighter application of foundation and/or powder. The densely cut bristles and use of a "buffing" motion really push the foundation into the skin, leaving lighter coverage overall.

                    The angled cut of the Foundation Brush allows you not only to really get into the crevices of your skin, but it enables you to build the coverage that you need. The sweeping application also provides for more coverage than the Expert Face brush since this brush wouldn’t be used to buff the foundation/powder into the skin. Overall, this allows for more precise application of your foundations or powders.

                    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.
