I've been wanting to try this particular Real Techniques brush ever since I saw it being used in Pixiwoo and Tanya Burr's YouTube tutorials. I already own the Blush brush and the Stippling brush which I love and my sister has almost all of them which she's used on me while doing my makeup, so I'm a big fan of these brushes.
The Expert Face brush is firm and broad for which is perfect for the application and blending of liquid or cream foundations. All the brushes have 'ultra plush' Taklon bristles which are super soft and help create a flawless, HD finish. The fact that they're synthetic means that they're really easy to wash which is a bonus because I hate washing my brushes. The brushes are also cut to the perfect shape which I love because they're so light and easy to hold while applying my makeup.
I was using the Stippling brush to apply my foundation before I bought this and sometimes used my sisters Buffing brush from the Core Collection. All three of these brushes have multi-uses and can be used to apply powder, cream or liquid foundation. I recently watched Sam's video in which she tells you the difference between the three brushes which I found really interesting so give it a watch. I also sometimes use my Stippling brush to apply my Chanel Univiersal bronzer, but it can be used for highlighters and blushers too.
So, whats my opinion? Goodbye foundation application with my Stippling brush! I love the way my foundation looks after using the Expert Face brush. Sam said she uses the Stippling brush for light coverage foundations, so I'll be sticking to the Expert Face brush from now on as it gives more coverage and a flawless finish which I prefer. It was also a bargain at £9.99 and I got it as part of the Boots 3 for 2. Next I need to get my hands on the Core Collection so I can compare the Buffing brush to these two. Although in the video Sam says the Buffing brush is more for use with mineral and powder foundation.
I think the Real Techniques brushes are amazing and there's no need to spend ridiculous amounts of money on high end brushes when you can get these for such a reasonable price - I prefer these to my MAC brushes! Have you given in to the hype and bought the Real Techniques brushes and if so, what's your favourite?
