I keep buying this brush!
I love it! This brush can be used for so many different applications! I love it to apply my B.B. cream. Something about the shape and softness of the bristles gives me a perfect finish every time. I makes applying foundations a breeze around the eye and nose area.
I have also been using this brush to apply my contour colors and creme blushes. It feels very natural in my hands and I love how it spreads my products evenly.
You can't beat the price (approx. $8.00) and this brush has lasted through a year of 3-day a week washings.
Real Techniques brushes are very hyped up makeup brushes because Sam from pixiwoo is the creator of these. They're very affordable (from six dollars to eighteen dollars for sets) and can be purchased from Ulta and I believe Amazon as well.
I went to Ulta (forty minutes away) yesterday and purchased two brushes: face expert (orange) and setting (pink). The Expert Face brush is for blending cream and liquid foundation. The Setting brush is good for applying powder or highlight on certain areas of the face. I've been using Expert Face for tinted moisturizer all over and Setting to apply powder underneath the eyes where I like to set concealer.
I'm completely used to applying my tinted moisturizer with my fingers. I've used brushes before and I didn't like the way they left streaks all over my face so I just felt like brushes were useless. I also wasn't keen on the idea of washing the brushes after every use (because built up liquid product is not pretty, obviously). But I'm a fan of the pixiwoo sisters (more Nic than Sam, heh) so I wanted to support. I always see these brushes being used and I wanted to try the new ones out. Plus, I already own the purple handle eyeshadow brush and I love it, so why not get more? Ulta also had a BOGO50% sale. I just wanted to see if a Face Expert brush really made any difference.
Does it make a difference appearance wise? I'm not very sure. It is fun to use. Just swirling it around on my face is fun. It's so soft so it's nice. It does leave streaks so I have to use my fingers in the end to wipe those marks away. It has made a difference in a different department: feel. When I apply theBalm BalmShelter TM on my face with my fingers, it does feel a little TM-heavy. It's nothing major, but it's there. When I use the Face Expert brush, I can hardly feel the TM on my face at all.
This brush does shed a little bit. As I was doing my makeup, I noticed I had brush hairs on my face at least three times. Since the hairs were fairly easy to remove, I did not rage at all (lol), but it's not something I'd like to keep doing every time I do my makeup.
Overall, I like the brush. I will continue using it for my face makeup.
very very very great brushes! My favorite blush brush of all time. they are ADORABLE and cheap. Recommend these brushes highly. I can't wait to purchase and try all the real techniques brushes! Might I add.. They are so very soft!
My go to brush for foundation and blending! Perfect for liquids and creams to give a smooth and even finish. The price is hard to beat! I even have two for backup use.
This brush is great for every day use, however I find that days on which my face is quite dry, it is better to blend my foundation with my beauty blender or finger as the warmth helps blends it into my pores. This brush can produce streaks against dry skin, but is over all a lovely purchase.
great brush heard about the line of brushes through a friend i use this specific brush to blend/buff my bronzer while contouring its great and so soft easy to clean and decent price would recommend to anyone
The most softest brushes in the entire world! I use my eyeshadow one everyday and it works so well and I love it! Love these brushes and looking forward to be getting more in the future!
Amazing. My liquid foundation goes on flawlessly and then I can easily blend my under eye concealer with it. Saves so much time and is very affordable. Hands down best brush and you need it in your life.
I use this brush with my MAC studio fix powder foundation. It leaves my foundation looking flawless. It's so soft on the skin I love it. Defiantly my go to brush.
I love this brush. It makes my foundation look flawless. And for the price? That's the best part for me. A high end performing brush for a low end price. Well done Sam! Love it I have nearly them all! I would literally recommend these brushes to anyone!
