Like everyone has already said I think it depends on the foundation and the finish you want. The flat foundation brush is definitly great for a fuller coverage foundation and for getting around the nose and other small areas to cover redness ect. The flat foundation brush is also great for faces that tend to have more hair, especially on the top lip. Using this brush with downwards strokes help that hair lay flat and not get pushed up with product like a stippling brush can tend to do there.

Stippling brush is better in my opinion! I think it gives a clean finish a foundation brush can leave streaks if not applied carefully. Also I do not put the foundation the brush. I use my clean finger tips and dab it in areas then blend and work it into my skin with a stippling brush.

Stippling is better I use that makes blending better. Flat leaves
streak in foundation.

Depends on what kind of coverage you want... flat brush= light coverage, sponge= medium-full coverage, stippling brush= Full, flawless coverage. Most like the sponge and stippling brush because it blends better.

They are both good but I prefer a denser buffing brush as I find it gives a nicer finish and makes it easier to blend the foundation perfectly.

I actually use both. I use the standard foundation brush to apply the product all over my face and then I go over with my stippling brush to blend it in.

I love the flat foundation brush, but it can make the foundation look streaky and then I have to pat onto the skin with the brush after applying it.

I do not know how I could live without my stippling brush before, when I only had the flat foundation brush. I love it so much! Application is super fast, amazing finish and if I want more coverage on one certain spot, I just pat on a bit more foundation with the stippling brush.

I would have to say the stippling brush, but a flat foundation brush is also very good in my opinion.

Just to add my opinion real quick, I think stippling the foundation on takes less time than applying with a foundation brush because you can cover more ground in one movement.
