Lately I’ve been reviewing a variety of products to apply foundation – a silicone sponge, a normal sponge, and now a makeup brush. FarelyCo sent me Real Techniques’ Expert Face Brush to try out. This brush is meant to apply liquid and cream foundations, giving you a flawless complexion. You use it by buffing the product onto your skin in circular motions.
Since I’ve found great success in applying my foundation with sponges (such as this one), I was a little worried I wouldn’t like this. When I first used this brush, I didn’t have time to use it on a day where I had time to sit down and do a full face of makeup. I was in a rush to go out but needed some foundation/concealer, so I grabbed this brush to quickly apply it. It did leave a flawless application, but I found it to be very light – which is most likely because of the buffing motion. I would definitely continue using this, but on days where I just need a light fix. I found I had to go over trouble areas (under eyes, over red spots/acne, etc) with a sponge for a bit more coverage.
