      Hard to pick up and apply concealer. Does not blend well. The bristles are rough and stiff. Hard on the skin.

                I had purchased this to be used as a blush brush. I thought it looked flat in the package but figured it would fluff up when I took it out. Wrong! Maybe it's supposed to be flat, but it's not good for my use. Needs to be more rounded and full.

                        I heard great things about this brush however when I used it to apply my foundation it didn't blend. It left the finish cakey and patchy.

                              It's not very good at blending in foundation you can still see brush streaks so I gave up and have to use my fingers to blend instead. You have to wash this product after each use as it feels and looks disgusting after one use, foundation clogs up the brush. Wouldn't recommend for the price

                                        The Expert Face Brush Item #: 2244502 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.

                                        Either brush can be used with liquid formulas!

                                        Rather than this brush, which is designed for all over application and blending of foundation, we suggest using either Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush (Item #: 2283104) or Real Techniques Stippling Brush (Item #: 2230003) to contour and highlight for definition.

                                        There are several differences between the two foundation brushes. The brush that is sold on its own has a different bristle cut than the one in the Core Collection. This individually sold brush is cut on a bias, while the Core Collection brush is more tapered. Both allow you to reach the crevices in your face (around your nose, under your eyes, etc.) for maximum coverage. The individual brush has more bristles overall, which allows greater pick up and application of product. In terms of similarities, both brushes are made from the same cruelty-free bristles and both have the no-shed qualities that Real Techniques is known for!
