love this brush
Excellent foundation brush.This was the brush that converted me to using foundation brushes. I'd only ever tried the flatter style before without much luck. This brush is really reliable - soft bristles that never fall out, the handle is comfortable to use and it buffs foundation smoothly into the skin without any streaks. I switch between this and a beauty blender for my normal routine, because I find certain foundations suit different methods of application better than others. This brush also cleans up really easily and after several years of regular use is showing no signs of wear and tear.
Soft and durableFairly inexpensive brush. Very sturdy but soft. It's a great brush for beginners and experts as it is good quality and works well with any liquid foundation. A great addition to any brush collection.
Great brush for foundation!I love this brush for blending out foundation. This is hassle free compared to using a sponge, it is super quick and the foundation doesn't loose its coverage.
Go-to foundation brushHave spent the past few years going between this and a morphe brush, but most times I end up reaching for this again because it's easy to use and is a complete fail safe - I know exactly what I'll get with this brush
Great to blending in liquid foundationI used for my liquid foundation to blend it in and for my banana powder. Really good although would prefer the site to be bigger.
PerfectionI tend to find most make-up brushes don't work for me, this one however is fantastic! A well as the fact that it actually applies product well, i love that it has multiple uses, I will pop my foundation and concealer on with it and then anything else: brush, highlighter, powder etc - it is my all over expert face brush!
Great for foundationI love using this brush for applying and buffing out my liquid foundation. It has dense bristles to effectively apply foundation. Blends your foundation really well so it doesn't look streaky or caked on. The bristles are quite soft and do not shed while washing. Lovely brush.
God sendI literally use half the foundation I used to and get a more full coverage. I am not great at makeup so have always just used my fingers to apply foundation but this was a game changer!! Foundation goes on flawlessly with little effort.
perfect brush for foundationi find this brush is perfect to blend all foundation out seamlessly! It gives a beautiful finish to all foundations and allows application to be simple and fast. The bristles are so soft as well and really good quality! The brush lasts for ages and its very easy to clean. Definitely recommend!
Great foundation brushI LOVE this brush! My foundation application has never been better!
Best foundation brushI love this brush! Perfect for foundation, blends so nicely on the skin and such good quality!
Best foundation brushI love this brush! Perfect for foundation and such good quality!
love this brushgreat for a foundation brush but can also use it for a blush brush or even a powder one! can be used as a multi brush!
good quality for priceThis brush is so good for anyone looking for an everyday decent-priced brush with great quality It's incredibly soft bristles make it excellent for buffing and blending liquid foundation/concealer. But it's a bit small, which takes a bit more effort to use, and I've had a few loose bristles here and there.
Beautifully softA beautiful extremely soft brush that makes my skin and foundation look flawless
Best brush!I love this brush. It is amazing for applying and buffing foundation and doesn't leave foundation looking streaky. If I don't use a sponge, I reach for this brush. It's also great to buff over blush and bronzer if too much has been applied.
Love this for foundationLove this brush to blend foundation, gets to all the hard to reach spots around the nose and chin but blends colour beautifully.
Good brushLove this brush. Use it everyday to apply foundation. Great at blending and does not soak up much product. Have similar brushes from other brands but would defiantly recommend this one
excellentthis brush is so nice i love it and it makes applying foundation so easy
Great brushI really like this brush, it blends my foundation evenly and gives a great finish. The bristles are so soft. Highly recommend.
Better than i expected.This brush isn't just good for foundation you can also blend cream highlighters, concealers, everything. happy with this!
the ULTIMATE brushThis is the most perfect brush for light-medium coverage foundations, cream bronzers, blushes, and highlighters! Blendes products like a dream and helps meld all the products together so it looks perfectly blended and flawless. I don't think the brush is as great for full coverage foundations, as it does leave brush strokes but quickly using a damp beauty blender afterwards solves that really easily. It's also such great quality, that it's hard to remember that it was less than $30!
great for applying foundationgreat brush for blending in foundation and streak free. brush also doesnt absorb all the product which is great
Affordable foundation brushThe best!! Really good value. I have owned mine for years. Doesn’t shed and buffs foundation in awesomely
Great for foundationThis brush gives skin a flawless look. I’ve had mine for a few years now and it’s still in really good condition
flawless applicationi have used this for years to apply foundation. it gives me flawless full coverage and does not soak up any of the product. would definitely recommend
The best foundation brush!100% recommend! Ever since I got one I have told all my friends to get one and they love them. It easily blends your makeup, effortlessly and precisely. I would never go back to any other foundation brush. I clean mine weekly, and never seem to have hairs come astray either!
GREAT Affordable brushes!I really Loved this brush. I think it's great quality for so cheap, super soft and applies product so well!! I have this one in my brush kit today, and will continue to repurchase. LOVE
Best Foundation Brush!I have been using this brush for around 5 years and it has never let me down - perfect for applying foundation. Will keep repurchasing again and again and again!!
Great Foundation BrushI love this brush from Real Techniques for when I want a slightly more full coverage look to my foundation (I often use a beauty sponge or fingers to apply). The density of the brush gets the product on really well, and blends it out evenly without streaks. Whilst it seems some think it is too small, I find the smaller size and shape of the brush works well for really getting the product everywhere around the face (eg, around the nose etc.) Would recommend if you are looking for an effective and long-lasting foundation brush.
Real Technique is amazing in generalGreat brush for blush & powder application. I like it
A go-toLove this brush for my foundation, have had mine for over 5 years and it still works like a legend. Definitely a long-lasting brush and does exactly what I want it to do.
NOT BIG ENOUGH.THIS BRUSH DOES WORK WELL WITH FOUNDATION BUT IT IS TOO SMALL FOR MY LIKING.. I MUCH PREFER THE LARGER FLAT TOP BRUSHES AS I FIND THIS ONE TAKES TOO LONG TO BLEND MY ENTIRE FACE.
GOOD QUALITY... MAY TRY FOR CONTOURING.
AwesomeLove the brand as the price is really low for how great the quality of the brushes are. I think this tool has helped make my foundation nice and even on the skin.
UndecidedI bought this brush with the intention of using it for foundation but I feel like it did not work very well in that sense. I am used to a flatter topped brush so this could be why. I am using it as a blending brush however and am happy with it for that.
best foundation brushThe best foundation brush for the price point. Before this, I used to use a flat foundation brush to apply foundation and then a flat top buffing brush to blend it in. This brush does both. It's dense enough to pack on product but fluffy enough to buff it in. It makes applying foundation so much faster and more seamless
GreatI always reach for this! perfectly fits around the face.
Go to contouring brush!This is my go to contouring face brush - it's soft and easy to blend with, yet dense enough to give me a defined and sculpted contour. Definitely recommended!
good foundation brushI keep this in my makeup bag for foundation and concealer!
Great qualityPerfect brush for applying foundation. It applies foundation evenly onto the face. It is also a great price for the quality.
Must have for quick, effortless and flawless application.Being a mum of a toddler, I am very limited with the amount of time I have to apply my makeup. This brush has ticked all of my boxes! It is so easy to blend out and gives perfect coverage, the handle is so comfortable to hold and maneuver. It helps cut down the time in which I apply my make up. And my favourite of all is that I don't waste anywhere near as much product as I do when I use a Beauty Sponge! Oh and it is so easy to clean, also dries rather quickly as well! It is so soft yet has the right amount of firmness. This is my go-to! I highly highly recommend!
Great brush for foundationThis brush is great for a flawless finish of foundation. I’ve been using this for years and I always love the results it gives
Affordable Foundation BrushGreat brush for foundation, super soft bristles which doesn't absorb too much product. I usually go over my foundation with a sponge after using this just to press it into my skin, giving it a more flawless and blended look.
Excellent quality brush for blending foundationThis is great quality makeup brush, I use this to apply my foundation and goes on very well. Highly recommended
Great Quality BrushI love this foundation brush! It is of a very high quality, with super soft, high density bristles. It makes smoothing out foundation a breeze. Sometimes I will use the brush to spread out the foundation and then bounce the Real Techniques sponge to create a flawless finish.
Best Foundation Brush EverReal techniques brushes are always high quality however this one has quite a small surface area for a buffing style brush - so allows you to get into all the cracks and creases. I love it
NiceOne of the best affordable brushes. Definitely a must-have, highly recommended!
Good BrushI love using this brush for my new Clarins Skin Illusion foundation. Goes on and blends perfectly with no streaks and even. I have had it for a few years now and I think it does better at applying lighter more serum like products than heavier products.
Such good qualityLove real techniques brushes they’re such good quality they’ve lasted me so long. I love this brush I use it as a buffing brush, the brisles a shorter and a little firmer which makes this amazing to spread and buff out any liquid foundation!
SO FLUFFYThis makes your foundation spread like a dream , it always looks absolutely flawless, never any fall out from the brush and is so soft.
Flawless makeup applicationThis is the second time I've purchased this brush which shows how much I really love it. I use it to blend liquid and cream foundations and it makes application a breeze. The bristles are soft but dense enough to prevent streaks.
StreakyBought this before beauty sponges became huge and was looking for a good way to apply foundation and thought this was the answer because I always heard such good things about it. Unfortunately it made my foundation EXTREMELY streaky. Especially on my nose. I had to pat out the streaks with my fingers and really had to finesse the foundation in with this brush. It also feels kind of scratchy on my face. I don't think the brush is the best quality or dense enough for foundation. Wouldn't really recommend it for how it worked for me.
Good for heavy foundationFirm and blends great, only bad thing is that my brush has deteriorated and some bristles have come loose after a few years of use
Great for foundationAt first I thought this was too small for foundation but after using this multiple times I really like it. Small enough for precision and no streaky lines.
My daily go to!I have loved this brush for years. I use it to apply liquid foundation to my face and love the look it gives. it is easy to hold and doesnt shed.
Small surface areaReal techniques brushes are always high quality however this one has quite a small surface area for a buffing style brush - so I just think it takes too much time and effort to blend everything in.
ExcellentI love to use this when I’m doing a heavier coverage look, blends great
GreatMust have Real Techniques brush for liquid foundation application. This is a dense brush, blends foundations in really flawlessly, washes well and retains shape. Also great at buffing out cream contour and blush.
was expecting morei got this brush expecting that it would give that air brush look to my foundation. tried with many different foundations but it always leaves foundation streaks on my face. i have dry skin maybe that is the problem. but now i use this brush for blush which has worked fine for me.
Blends wellGreat for blending heavier coverage foundation
Foundation goes on flawlesslyThis brush is amazing - I use Too Faced Born This Way liquid foundation & have always struggled with a nice finish with no streaks etc. This brush feels so beautifully soft on my skin & spreads my foundation beautifully. I'm not a fancy brush person so I am pretty stoked that it is so affordable too!
Favourite blush brushI have been using this brush for years as my blush brush! I absolutely love it!
Great coverageMany of the brushes I've used in the past don't have the great coverage that this brush does! It flawlessly applies foundation and you can build coverage without it being cakey. Blending is super easy too and it leaves no lines or distinctions.
Use it everyday!I use this brush everyday to apply my foundation, Perfect seamless application - with little effort. Easy to wash and the bristles dont fall out. Great price point!
One of the bestI use daily when I'm putting on my foundation as it doesnt absorb much product hence, I dont need to pack on my foundation when I'm using it. It blends out my foundation seamlessly. I've been using this brush for years now and will never go to another brush again.
Love itIt's super soft and wonderful at blending in foundation. Creates a really lovely finish without leaving really obvious brush strokes, as some other brushes do. Easy to get into the corners also cos it's soft. Really affordable price too!
Great value & QualityI've been using this brush for about a month now and its really great quality for price. Really soft and doesn't seem to lose any bristles (Yet).
Easy to blendGreat foundation brush, blends everything perfect
Soft brush & great valueI recently purchased this brush and in the mini size and its really soft and great for applying foundation. Very happy with purchase!
Value for moneyIf you're after a good brush on a budget, this is a great option. It's soft and plush, bouncing back to shape after each application. It does absorb a lot of product though and can be quite tough to get out even with good brush cleansers. I do have more expensive brushes that don't seem to have this problem, but I still think this is a great brush for the price.
UndecidedI'm not sold on this brush but perhaps I'm not using it correctly. I prefer to use a regular foundation brush for liquid foundation. This does do a good job of buffing the foundation in after it's already applied, but I usually use a sponge for that.
WonderfulI've been using this brush every day for one month now and no bristles have fallen out, it's lovely and soft and does a wonderful job at applying my foundation and cleaning up around the eyes. It also cleans very well and I'm not there for ages trying to work the foundation out of the brush. Love it!
really good for the priceI love how dense the brush is which helps to apply product evenly
Flawless finishThis brush is great for blending heavier foundations for full coverage and a flawless look. After using this brush for around 2 years daily the bristles have come loose from washing the brush so much so will be repurchasing!
Great brushFantastic brush - Super soft & great price. Good size to get into those tighter spaces on the face. I think it applies foundation smoothly. Great starter brush!
GreatI use this brush for contouring and find it works really well. You can't go pass Real Techniques brushes. I have added this one to my collection.
Great brush especially for the price!I use this for my cream and powder contours, been using for almost a year (washed many times) and is still holding up so well! Great price and definitely would recommend. Soft and overall good quality!
GoodI really like this for putting on my foundation as it doesn't soak up the product at all, however it can leave streaks so I like to go over it with a sponge just to smooth it out.
Pretty gooda nice brush that I use for a variety of different things! super soft and easy to control
Perfect for foundationI love this brush for blending out my foundation. It helps distribute product evenly and ensures the coverage for the foundation is still on the skin. One of my favourite ways to apply foundation.
GreatWonderful for blending foundation and concealer in bigger areas!
UndecidedI wanted to try out a new foundation brush after years of using the Sigma f80 and this brush had great reviews. Personally, I much prefer the Sigma for a more full coverage, even and quick application. However, there are benefits to this brush that the sigma doesnt offer in that it really gets into difficult areas with ease; nose, around eyes. I think it would be a good brush for contouring which is what I will probably use it for.
GreatI used to use this brush to help apply my foundation, but have gone off using foundation altogether. So I now use this brush to buff away any excess blush or bronzer that I may have applied to heavily. It is a fantastic multi-purpose brush that you can use for almost anything. I love the Real Techniques range!
Does the trickI have bought and rebought this brush many times over the years. I use it daily to apply my foundation evenly and streak free. It is fail safe and a great way to blend makeup into the hair and jaw line.
Amazing BrushRecommended it to all my friends such a great brush for foundation makes it so flawless.
GoodI liked the old version of this as it blended my liquid foundation really well, but I feel like they may have changed it? Or maybe I got one which wasn't packed tightly enough, because I feel like my new one blends my foundation a bit more streakily than it used to. It is good as a final product to use once already having blended out foundation to smooth it over as a last step, but not the best for the whole procedure of applying foundation. Still good though.
Fantastic BrushIve had this brush for literally years and its still amazing! i really like using it for liquid foundations and building the product up with this and its great for that. It can be a little bit streaky but i just go over it with a sponge but otherwise this is a great brush.
Great for powder foundationI recently bought the Bare Minerals Blemish Remedy powder foundation as I wanted something light and something that will actually help my blemish prone skin.
Being a liquid foundation girl, I had no idea how to apply and blend the powder foundation in - I was recommended this brush and it does the job brilliantly. It doesnt pick up too much product so you can build it up nicely and it buffs it into the skin brilliantly.
VERY GOODI love using this brush to messily and quickly blend my foundation before going in with a sponge. The only downfall is that it leaves streaks but i love it because it gives high coverage and then i go lightly over with my RT sponge to remove streaks but still maintain a full coverage! highly recommend
Great brush!I use this brush for applying liquid/powder foundation and blending anything on my face and it is perfect for blending. I can achieve light or full coverage using this brush.
Foundation BrushLove this as a foundation brush. I use it for all my liquid foundations.
Its like a lighter and fluffier kabuki brush. Really allows you to get build-able coverage with any liquid foundation.
Bristles are super soft and easy to clean. Would recommend.
WonderfulGreat foundation brush. I use it to apply powder foundation on a daily basis. It picks up a good amount of product, has soft bristles and is easy to buff. Really like it.
Good for cream productsI have had this brush in my collection for a long time and have enjoyed it for liquid foundation application over the years. It is good quality and has lasted well. I would recommend a dabbing motion when applying as the bristles are densely packed and 'swiping' can move product around and cause streaking.
Perfect for blending!I love this brush for buffing and blending. It is comparable to the NP 24r brush however, it is smaller so better for getting into creavaces and doesn't loose any excess brush hairs. It doesn't absorb product so you get more bang for your buck.
MultiuseGosh this is such a multitude brush. I use it mainly for foundation but have for buffing and blushes as well.
nice foundation brushIt works best with cream and liquid foundation and can also be used for powder foundation. It blends foundation well without absorbing too much product. The size of the brush is perfect for blending foundation and it blends foundation well on sides of the nose.
Good brushSuch a good brush for liquid foundation. This does a great job at applying my finishing powder too. I love the look I get with this.
Best blending brushI have purchased expensive blending brushes and never came across a brush this good. I use it to blend my cream bronzer/contour and it does a perfect job. I wouldn’t spend any more money on any other brushes!
AwesomeI love this brush for blending out my cream contour! Because it's tapered, I'm able to easily blend it our precisely and seamlessly!
Great brushThis is a all rounder brush. Perfect for buffing in and working my foundation in. I use it sometimes at the end too for my power.
