I have 2 of these brushes now and I just could not be without them. I use one to apply my foundation drops, and another to buff on my mineral foundation. It is the perfect size and density to cover every crack and crevice. And with regular washing they can last for years

This foundation brush is my oldest foundation brush and it's still my absolute favourite! 4years down, no shedding and still works perfectly! I love multitasking and this brush is just amazing at it! Work cream and/or liquid foundation beautifully into the skin, because of the slightly narrower but rounded head it goes for perfectly blended contour as well and also it works for targeted powder application and highlighter! It's honestly my best friend!

The brush gives a good finish with liquid foundation. On occasion when I am using a higher coverage foundation I need to go over some areas with a sponge to even out marks but most of the time all is fine. The bristles are densely packed and very soft. I have to clean it regularly to avoid build up as this clumps the bristles together and this can leave a more streaky finish. Overall very impressed with this for the price. Will consider buying other brushes from the range.

This blends my bareminerals foundation better than the brush that me with and it's half the price of their brush. It washes well and it's so incredibly soft. I actually find I use less product now as it blends it so well.

I love this brush for buffing in my powder foundations. It’s a great size, picks up an even amount of product and blends out beautifully. It is very dense and I have never had any loose bristles. Washes well, has a nice weight and shape to the handle and leave a flawless finish.

I received after winning a Glam Geek competition and I absolutely love this brush!!! I've only used this a couple of times but I can already tell that this is a holy grail makeup tool for me. The bristles are densely packed which makes buffing out foundation really easy! The bristles are also really soft so it feels lovely on the skin. It doesn't leave any streaks or lines, and evenly blends out any liquid foundation. Thank you so much to the Glam Geek team <3

this is honestly the perfect brush for cream foundations as well as liquid! It’s extremely dense and for £8.99 it’s worth every penny. The blending with this is completed to perfection thanks to the soft yet form bristles that ensure perfect application. A must have for everyone!this is one of my favourite real technique brushes ever, it definitely lives up to its description. It also makes sure your foundation is buffed to perfection , streak-free and a perfectly painted canvas without looking fake or caked up! obviously it depends on your foundation but the brush really doesn’t fail to help!

Real techniques can do no wrong! And this brush is no exception!! This brush is just the right fluffyness and density to blend my foundations flawlessly!! I can se this to a achive a beautiful natural finish on a day to day basis, but the brush is dense enough to stipple my foundation on for a fuller coverage! So good i have to always have a back up in my drawer!!!!

The best face brush I've ever used! You can do a natural airbrushed finish, a full coverage finish, anything really. The bristles are so soft and can blend anything. It is very dense which means you don't get any streaks! Sticking to this brush for as long as I live

Was lucky enough to win this in the weekly review competition, and I have to say I was impressed. This brush is so versatile it is my new 'go to' brush for pretty much everything! The bristles were super soft and the shape made it not only perfect for making my liquid and powder foundation flawless, but for also blending in countour too!

I was lucky enough to be sent this by GlamGeek and although an avid BeautyBlender user, I thought I'd give it a go with all of my foundations, and I ended up loving it! It works perfectly both dry and damp, (with som Fix+) and gives a gorgeous finish when used with each of my foundations - light and heavy liquids, and stick foundations. All I do afterwards, (probably out of habit!) is bounce my BeautyBlender over the top to make sure there's not too much product on my face, but it's worth it - I've bought another 2 for myself, and for my Mother and sisters!

Honestly an outstanding brush. This has completely changed my routine. I use my expert face brushes mostly for foundation, but also for things such as concealer and blending out cream contour. The brush is very firm yet soft, and disperses the product out beautifully. Unlike a lot of Real Techniques brushes, this did not apply the product streaky at all. A very good drugstore brush, a lot better than any high end one I have tried.

Makeup brushes have evolved so much over the last six years, you used to just be able to use the standard flat foundation brush. This brush has a more rounded shape, and is wider. The brush is made with synthetic bristles and is cruelty free. When using this brush I brush it in circular motions, really buffing the foundation into my skin. This brush always delivers a flawless finish when using any foundation, whether thats liquid, cream or gel! This has long been my favourite makeup brush. So don't just read this review, go out and purchase it, and see how amazing it is! Your going to love it!

Gives a flawless finish and blends out product so well . Leaves no streaks at all . The dense packed bristles seem to do an amazing job at making foundation smooth and give it an airbrushed look which is fab.
