        This is a great brush. I already have one but I wanted to buy another one because I want to use it for multiple products. The bristles are so soft and it's easy to use. I like to apply my foundation with a buffing brush and this is a great one.

                I use this brush to blend out my concealer and foundation. Gives me a flawless finish without any streaks. Bristles are soft, and the brush is the perfect size for me. I like how the tips of the bristles are white so it reminds me to clean them when ittoo chalked up full of product. Prevent breakouts!

                I bought this brush after a LONG time of debate. And yes it is worth it! It is compact enough bristles to move the foundation, but also is soft enough to make the application very smooth! I really love this product!

                        Would this brush be good to apply bronzer with?

                          Hi Neesha,

                          The Expert Face Brush is one of my most favorite brushes, simply because you can do so many things with it! Foundation, blush, contour, etc! But, I think, if you're going for a sun-kissed look with a bronzer, you would be better off using a brush that has a fuller head and is a little less dense & concentrated that the Expert Face brush.

                          Here are two that I would recommend:

                          1) our Real Techniques Powder Brush: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3220077

                          2) our Bold Metals Arched Powder Brush: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod11831007

                          I actually love the Bold Metals brush specifically for bronzer because it has our highest quality bristles to date and is so soft and light that it gives me the exact look I'm going for.

                          Thanks - hope that helps!

                          A:

                          Hi makeupsparkles,

                          That's a great question, and it really does depend on how much you use your brush on a daily basis, and how well you take care of it (cleaning, storage, etc).

                          If you do use your brush quite a bit (at least every day), we would probably recommend replacing it every 6mos to a year to get the best performance, results and look that you want.

                          Make sure that you are cleaning your brushes on a somewhat regular basis, though. Once a week or once every two weeks, at least. We have come out with a great new cleansing system to help you with this.

                          We have developed a Brush Cleansing Palette (which you can find here: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod13731029&skuId=2297111&_requestid=972847). This was specifically designed to clean brush heads and has multi-textured surfaces to clean different brushes and bristles. It's a gentler way to get a good clean.

                          We also have a Deep Cleansing Gel that was formulated just for the type of bristles on these brushes. You can find that here: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                          After you've washed your brushes, make sure you squeeze any excess moisture out of the bristles, and leave them to dry at an angle, with the brush head facing down. That eliminates any water sitting in the ferrule, which could cause your brush bristles to shed.

                          Thanks so much and I hope that helped!

                          Hi Desii,

                          Thanks for your question - it's a good one! This Expert Face Brush can be used for just about anything foundation-related, it's just such an awesome multi-tasker, but for a color correcting product, I would actually point you to our Stippling Brush. You can find it on Ulta.com here:

                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod3220083

                          The Stippling Brush has bristles that are a little less dense than the Expert Face Brush, which makes for an ideal application of a lighter-type cream (like a CC cream).

                          And, no matter what kind of foundation product you're using, make sure you're cleansing your brushes on a somewhat regular bases (1x/week at least). We have a great new gel cleanser that is formulated specifically for brushes. You can get that on Ulta.com here:

                          http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                        Which brush would be more recommended to apply matte liquid foundation, this one or the Real Techniques stippling brush?

                          HI Anna -

                          Great question! My answer would be both! :)

                          The great thing about the Real Techniques brushes is that they are meant to all have more than one use, and in this case, truly either brush would work well for you in terms of applying a matte liquid foundation.

                          If I have to choose, I would recommend the Expert Face Brush every so slightly over the Stippling, and that truly is just personal preference. Both are going to blend and apply beautifully and work the product in to your face (rather than work it deep into the bristles of your brush). But I love the density of the Expert Face Brush and find it just a bit easier to cover all areas of my face.

                          Hope that helps!

                          Its ultra firm bristles and broad brush head design ensure smooth and even application on any skin type! For best results, moisturize prior to makeup application. Exfoliating your skin 1-2x weekly can also help to eliminate any flaky dryness so that your makeup applies more smoothly and evenly. Enjoy!

                          This brush is best for all-over application and blending of foundation, though it can be used to apply and blend blush and bronzer to broad areas of the face such as the apples of the cheeks or to contour the cheek bones.

                          We also suggest Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, which can be used in endless versatile ways including concealing and contouring:
