    Not good for foundation

        Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

        I would not recommend this product for foundation. I have oily skin and I use the Covergirl 3 in 1 foundation. When I first bought this brush, I had hoped it would be good to use with foundation (since its called the foundation brush) but it is not. It is awkward applying liquid foundation and I feel as if I am painting my face. The expert face brush by the same brand is much better, in my opinion, for applying liquid foundation

        Don't like this brush

        By Bags

        Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

        I have almost all the Real Techniques brushes, and never use this one. The bristles are hard and sparse. Bought it for contouring, waste of money.

              Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

              I bought this brush when I was first starting out with makeup. I already owned the Real Techniques Blush Brush, which is a phenomenal brush imo. I knew other people really liked this brand, and it's inexpensive to boot, so I got this brush thinking it would be great for contour. Definitely not so. It created an excessively harsh line and the bristles are extremely stiff so I couldn't even use the wide side to buff it out. I've tried it for other uses, like applying concealer, it just doesn't do it for me. I can't think of what you'd use this for. Powder foundation? Too small and stiff, go with a flat top. Liquid? Too many lines, just go with their beauty sponge. Definitely not my favorite thing from them.

                      Comments about Real Techniques Foundation Brush:

                      This brush is just not good. Its bristles are so thick, sharp, and stiff. If you don't use downward strokes, it will stab into your face and sting. This made me break out because it was so rough on my skin. The application was terrible as well. This just isn't good. Go for the buffer in the core collection or the expert face brush instead.

                            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.
