Comments about Real Techniques Blend + Blur Foundation Brush:

This brush is very stiff, that being said it does blend liquid and stick products well, it absorbs a bit of product like a lot of brushes do, and does drag on the skin a bit, sort you might have to apply more product if you want more coverage, it easy to clean, good overall.

      The brush applies foundation beautifully. I have an Artis Palm brush & also The Oval 7. This is just as good if not better. I am reaching for this first over my other brushes and beauty blender. Saves time, applies evenly with a gorgeous finish.

              First time trying a brush like this for liquid foundation application. It was affordable and a good brush. Leaves some streaks when circling the face, but is soft and applies a decently even coat. I use a sponge to even out streaky spots.

                This brush is god awful. It does not blend my foundation in at all, it causes terrible streaks and flakes, and it wastes my makeup. I do not recommend this brush at all and I am disappointed that I purchased this. I'll stick to my real tech beauty blenders, at least those work.

                I've heard nothing but good things about this brush and when I bought it I was extremely disappointed. All it does is leave streaks all over my face... works ok but have to go back over foundation with a blending bud.. I'm sure it could be tweaked somehow

                    Hi Gabrielle,

                    This is amazing with powder foundations! I love a full coverage look and this brush is perfect for applying and blending! The dense, short bristles allow for more direct application, rather than product getting lost in the fluffiness. :)

                  How does this work on people with extremely Sensitive skin? I get splotchy after using Balm cleansers, complete bummer, so I'm wondering if this is going to have the same type of effect.

                  I did see one reviewer talk about how they aren't sensitive but had issues.

                  Thank you!

                    A:

                    Hi CatLuuver,

                    Thanks so much for your question. Sensitive Skin is such a tricky thing, isn't it? In all honesty, while this brush doesn't have anything in it that would irritate sensitive skin, I think the density of the bristles and how they work may cause an issue with you. I would probably recommend a brush with less dense bristles (like the Buffing Brush in our Flawless Face Set - found here: http://www.ulta.com/flawless-base-set?productId=xlsImpprod15361243) or our Instapop Face Brush (found here: http://www.ulta.com/instapop-face-brush?productId=xlsImpprod16971117).

                    I think you would just want something that's not going to be pressing or moving around your face. Something lighter and fluffier will hopefully do the trick.

                    Thanks!

                    Hi Orchid Pham,

                    The biggest difference is the size. The All Over Brush is definitely bigger than the Foundation Brush.

                    The Foundation Brush is perfect for application of foundations (liquids, creams or powders) and even some bronzing and blush.

                    The All Over is absolutely perfect for blending out your final look, as well as applying finishing powder, etc. I have found, though, that after I apply everything (foundation, powder, blush, contour, highlighter, etc) that I take my All Over Brush, do a sweep and blend quickly and it just sets my look perfectly.

                    Thanks!

                    Hi Zeola,

                    Great question! You can wash these brushes just like you do your other ones. I recommend using a cleanser specifically formulated for make up brushes. Real Techniques actually makes a pretty great gel cleanser you can find here: http://www.ulta.com/deep-cleansing-gel?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                    We recommend weekly or bi-monthly cleaning, depending how much you use your brushes. To clean them, dampen bristles in warm water and squeeze a drop of gel onto bristles. Rub between fingers and rinse until clean. Reshape and dry flat or with handles tilted slightly upward.

                    Hope that helps!
