This an overall great brush but, if you apply prouduct straight on the brush to your face it can appear quite streaky i suggest putting the prouduct on your face them going in with the brush . No shedding . No discoloration . Easy to wash.

This is my first time ever using a liquid foundation and it will be the only brush that I will ever use. its amazing and it stays flat the whole time so you don't get the hair like or line look when you apply it.

A little confused

By Ellie

from Undisclosed

Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

I've been using Real Techniques for a while now and absolutely adore the brushes that I own, however I bought this brush yesterday and when I went to use it this morning I brushed it over my face once and the bristles immediately fell out. I haven't washed it prior to usage at all, it was my first time using the brush. I've had the same problem with the stippling brush but that was because like everyone else, I used a brush cleaner and it caused the bristles to shed. I'm just curious to see if anyone else had the same issue, I have a feeling I just got a dodgy brush but I'm just interested to hear other peoples opinions.

        I wanted to try this brand of brushes and I wasn't of fan of this particular brush..I felt it to rough I prefer my sigma brushes. A little pricier but much better quality.

          I love all the Real Technique brushes! I used to use MAC but I honestly think these are better. They last a really long time and don't shed. GREAT VALUE.

                Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

                This is a soft, dense, non-feathery brush. The top is angled, but doesn't stick you like hairbrush bristles. I use this brush sometimes for blush and contouring because the top is about the width of a pinky finger. FYI: when using for contouring make sure the line is blended, because it can look like a streaked line.

                    Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

                    I decided to try an inexpensive angled blush brush, but I returned this one pronto! Much too stiff. I paid more for a different angled brush which I like better. High price does not guarantee quality, but in this case, cheaper was not the answer.

                    I was confused with the "Stippling" brush - serious MEH.

                    This one is fine.

                    Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

                    I purchased this for my new blush. It looked cool and was reasonably priced. Well, you are lucky to get any coverage (even for blush) with this brush. The longer bristles are sparse and if you want to see the blush you will be applying and applying and applying it until it is visible. I think the next time I purchase a blush brush I will get one that will provide better coverage

                          I honestly feel this product is a waste of money. I cannot even get my head around how this brush could be useful. It's not the right shape for foundation and it is hardly dense enough for contouring, which I imagined using it for. I would not purchase this again.
