This is great foundation brush! Very soft and blends makeup smooth and evenly. The only down side is it takes forever to dry when you wash it.

        Comments about Real Techniques Blend + Blur Foundation Brush:

        At first wasn't sure what to expect because "it's not a top brand" and they say you get what you pay for. But I love this brush and brand already, it's so soft I wanted to just keep touching it over and over, and then the actual foundation (loose powder) application felt better than just using a regular powder brush. The bristles are tightly bound, yet soft so it has a soft but firm application feel and blends very well.

                        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!

                        Thanks!

                        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!
