Recently I purchased the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush which is a new brush that has recently launched to the Real Techniques range. I love Real Technique brushes and the Buffing Brush from the Core Collection (which I have reviewed here) is my new go to foundation brush and the Blush Brush (review here) is now my contouring best friend. I got this brush from Beauty Chamber for £9.99 + £2.95 P+P.
I wanted to get this brush to replace my MAC 129 powder/blush brush. My MAC brush has turned into a shedding nightmare and ever since getting my first RT brushes I find the bristles to be really coarse. Also the MAC brush is a whopping £26 compared to RT’s £9.99!
From stock photos I thought that the brushes are a similar size and it would be a simple switch over. That sadly was not the case. The RT brush is really dense and when I used it with my Laura Mercier Peach Whisper Blush it packed on far too much colour. Even when I tried to blend out the colour it still didn’t really work. Considering that Peach Whisper is a lovely soft, peach colour it turned into a very vibrant orange on my cheeks! I have heard that people use the Expert Face Brush for foundation but I already have my beloved Buffing Brush for that. I did spot a few people using it with the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder (but then that would require another purchase on my part :P). At the moment sadly my Expert Face Brush is sitting slightly unloved at the moment. Would love to know what you use it for to hopefully give it more of a purpose!
