    This is the first time I have ever tried a foundation brush. This one was suggested to me by my hair dresser. I love it because it is easy to use and doesn't leave my face with streaks. Covers well.

          This is a great product, and a steal for the price. This is the second brush I've bought, the first one lasted me so long and held up so well. 5 stars plus!

          Bristles fall out

          By Holls

          from Sheffield, United Kingdom

          Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

          I bought this brush about 3 months ago & at first I loved it. Now I'm unable to use it. The bristles fall out everywhere (no I haven't over washed it as I haven't washed it once) I am so disappointed especially because of the price paid for this one. The bristles fall out and get all stuck over my face in my foundation, they go all over my Clothes and floor. So disappointed. I would not recommend this brush.

              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.

                        Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

                        I bought this like four months ago. It is the first brush i bought ever, and it fulfilled my expectations. The first application was as smooth and perfect as promised, even though I am no expert at applying foundation. It requires a little practice to get an outstanding finish, but overall it is a great brush. It washes really quick, and maintains it silky texture. I wash it with baby shampoo.

                        • Q:

                          Which is better for liquid foundation, the foundation brush or the expert face brush? What is the difference between the two?

                            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.

                          what is the difference between this foundation brush and the foundation brush from the core collections set?

                            A:

                            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!
