Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - £9.99

I mentioned the Real Techniques brushes in my last weekend wishlist and I got my hands on this one earlier this week. I was initially after the 'core collection' but this caught my eye instead and buying one brush seemed more sensible to begin with until I'd made my mind up on the brand! I've used my trusty ELF stipple brush to apply foundation for as long as I can remember and have never had any complaints about it but after hearing such amazing things about Real Techniques brushes I was keen to give them a try.

In terms of quality you really can notice the difference between the two brushes straight away. The Real Techniques expert face brush is a lot firmer than the ELF option and I feel as if I have a lot more control over how much product I apply. I use this mainly with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and find that it gives really good results; excellent coverage that isn't completely flawless but comes very near to it! Due to the soft fibres my foundation takes a fraction of the time to blend and doesn't leave any of the nasty streaks that I commonly find occur when applying my foundation with a brush. It buffs the product really well into the skin and gives a beautifully even coverage which I'm really happy with!

I'll definitely continue to use this brush and haven't even reached for another one since I bought it. I love it and plan to expand my Real Techniques collection soon!
