    This brush is my new favorite on my foundation brush. I use it daily & just LOVE it! It is SO soft and feels amazing on my skin. It blends my foundation seamlessly! Was my first brush of this brand & because I love it so much I will surely be buying more brushes from Real Techniques!

      Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

      This is a great brush. I was never really a fan of applying foundation with a brush until I gave this one a try. Super dense and very soft. Also love the more rounded shape the brush has.

              I've never had a brush for foundation and didn't want to spend as much as some of the ones recommended to me by friends. The associate at the store recommended this one to me that she also uses. I use Maybelline and Revlon (I think) liquid foundation and this brush makes it go on like a dream. Looks amazing. Cleans great. I'm in love.

                Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

                I really liked this brush. The bristles are soft and dense. It works amazingly on BB Creams, tinted moisturizers and light coverage liquid foundation. It helps to build up great coverage so if your foundation is too thick it may result in a bit thicker consistency that expected. For example, I used it with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and the final result was a little bit masky and heavy, so I recommend it better for lighter coverage products in order to get a natural and fresh appearance with great coverage. The brush is a bit small so you have to work with it but that also helps to work on details.

                Comments about Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

                I use this brush with my NARS sheer matte foundation in Serbia (Light 01). I researche what was best to apply my specific foundation, and was referred to this brush or a beauty blender. I personally did not like the beauty blender and opted for the brush. It's great, soft and blends perfectly for a "not even there" look, which I like for my extremely fair, sensitive, combo skin. I get dry patches and oily spots, I also have red spots and this brush helps apply foundation in equal amounts across my face without clinging to dry patches or leaving excess product in oily places.

                      A:

                      The Expert Face Brush 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.

                      A:

                      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.

                      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.
