      Although this brush has soft bristles, I found this brush to be hard to use for applying my powder foundation. Had to return the brush.

        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.

                  Love, love, love this brush! I used it everyday to apply my foundation. The bristles are very soft, and I have yet to experience any shedding (ever after cleaning it). I have other Real Technique brushes as well, and have had nothing but a good experience with them. I would definitely recommend this product.

                            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.

                            A:

                            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.

                            This brush is best for all-over application and blending of foundation, though it can be used to apply and blend blush and bronzer to broad areas of the face such as the apples of the cheeks or to contour the cheek bones.

                            We also suggest Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, which can be used in endless versatile ways including concealing and contouring:

                        • Q:

                          How would you use this brush to apply the new BareMinerals liquid foundation? Would you place a drop of the foundation on the back of your hand, then dip the brush in it? Or directly apply the foundation on the brush then onto your face? I am confused as to how to use this brush for a liquid foundation since it does not have the reservoir built in like the bareminerals brush does. Thanks!!

                            The best method would likely be to distribute bareSkin Foundation to forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, then buff and blend with Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, but we recommend experimenting with application to see what works best for you!
