      Comments about Real Techniques Blend + Blur Foundation Brush:

      I really like the dense brush part -- great for applying liquid foundation. The brush part is very top heavy, however. The handle is also thin and curved in a direction that doesn't work for me. I have to hold it differently than intended in order to be able to use the brush on my face. This needs to go back for a redesign.

        This brush is super soft and blends my liquid foundation perfectly. It smooths into every nook and doesn't waste product like the sponges do. Really does blur, I highly recommend!

        Comments about Real Techniques Blend + Blur Foundation Brush:

        Just bought this, and love it so much! I've been looking for a long time for a brush that's super dense but not stiff at all, and not rough. This brush is it! It blends out my foundation (Mac waterproof prolong wear) beautifully and thus far hasn't shed. Highly recommend!

          I was a die-hard beauty sponge user. I hated brushes- they left brush marks and made my foundation heavy. I LOVE this one! It's so soft, blends beautifully!! I wish they made one in a concealer size!

                    Hi there,

                    Most brushes do absorb some product, especially more liquid foundations, the but the density of this brush should prevent a significant amount of product absorbing into the brush. If you try think brush, I think you'll love it!

                    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. :)

                • Q:

                  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!

                    A:

                    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!
