    I like it. I use it for foundation, illuminator, blush and then my powder. It's not too small and not too big.

            I bought this to use for applying my foundation. I found this very difficult to use for this purpose. The bristles were soft, yet hard when applying to the skin (if this makes any sense to you!).

                  I have used this brush to apply liquid foundation and it blends quickly as long as you use a small amount of product at a time. If you try to apply too much foundation at once it turns out looking uneven and patchy.

                    Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

                    I love this brush! I have looked for so long for a basic blush/ powder brush that wasn't too expensive and this one is perfect. For so many cheap brushes, the bristles are so long and flimsy, but this brush actually has substance. It holds the powder and actually buffs it into the skin. I use it with my bare minerals foundation and it works wonders. I only wish that it was a tad bigger, but it's a perfect multi-purpose brush.

                              The Expert Face Brush that is sold individually has much shorter bristles, and more bristles overall. This enables the brush to "grab onto" the product and buff it into the skin. The foundation brush is thinner, not as many bristles and is more angled, for more precise application specifically around the nose and chin. They both can be used for product application, but if you’re looking for a bit more coverage, the Expert Face Brush will probably work a bit better.

                            How does this brush compare to the Real Techniques "Buffing brush" that comes as part of the "Sam's Picks" brush set? What are the similarities and differences? The "buffing brush" was recommended for applying BareSkin serum foundation, and I am wondering how this brush would be different in it's application.

                              This brush features firmer, more densely packed bristles than the Buffing Brush, which makes it ideal for liquid/cream formula application, while the Buffing Brush works best for loose/pressed powder application. Expert Face Brush is more suitable for application of bareSkin Foundation than Buffing Brush.

                              This brush is designed to apply and blend liquid and cream makeup formulas including BB and CC creams. It is easy to use and very versatile, so we would say, yes, it is great for beginners! Feel free to watch Real Techniques founder and makeup artist Sam Chapman's tutorial video here:
                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVoRVmwKwo8

                              We recommend cleaning your brushes at least once weekly (more often if you have acne-prone skin). Use a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo, and work into the bristles to create a lather with cool water. Rinse until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can also spritz your brushes with brush cleaner spray in between uses to keep them clean in between shampoos.
