expert face brush - £8.99 superdrug

Hello lovelies! Well, what on earth has been going on around here eh? GFC seems to have been 'down' for quite a while now, could this finally be the end?? I really do wish google had been clearer on this, we've all been left in the dark about this a bit. Annoying! So anyway, I really don't want to switch to Google+ if this is the end of GFC, so if you could take a moment to follow me on bloglovin' here, that would be fab - and don't forget to leave your bloglovin' links in the comments so I can follow you back!

Anyway, onto the point of the post. My new favourite makeup brush! I tweeted a while ago asking how you lovelies applied your liquid foundations, as my Real Techniques buffing brush had seriously seen better days. So, I trotted off to Superdrug, only to find Real Techniques (RT) were on sale for buy one get one half price! I think this offer is still on so snap some up while you can! Superdrug are actually slightly cheaper than Boots for RT brushes anyway, this was £8.99 as opposed to £9.99 in Boots, so that's worth knowing! So I picked up the Expert Face Brush and Stippling Brush for my sister. Me being me, I couldn't wait until the next day to apply my makeup, so I tried this as soon as I got home (after taking photos of course, blogger points!).

I. love. it. It's a bit smaller than the buffing brush and slightly more dense too, meaning you don't get any of those irritating lines in your foundation, just a quick, flawless finish. When I say quick, I mean quick too. I can apply my makeup in a mad rush (every morning) and not worry too much about how it looks after. This brush applies my foundation so evenly and streak free with no problems at all. It's also a little smaller than the buffing brush, meaning it gets to places like the sides of the nose and the undereyes fairly easily. This is also the softest brush ever and feels amazing on the skin. I'd forgotten how nice and hassle-free it can be applying foundation with a brush that isn't used to death (my poor buffing brush really has taken a beating) and this one just feels such fab quality and so luxurious. It hasn't shed at all either, which is actually something I've found with all RT brushes. Despite months of abuse, my older RT brushes haven't shed even slightly, so that's amazing!

Overall, I'd totally recommend this brush to anyone, if you're a long time makeup lover like myself, it'll be a pleasure to add to your collection and it's also super user friendly and great if you're just getting started too.

What do you think, have you tried this brush or would you like to? What's your favourite way to apply your foundation?

    1. I honestly prefer this, I adore the buffing brush but this is slightly smaller which I like as it can get to smaller areas a lot more precisely :) I also slightly prefer the more rounded shape xx

  13. I've already got the buffing brush but it may be time to invest in this one too - how can I say no with a deal like that on? I love how soft these brushes are too :)

  14. Hey,

    I just followed you on bloglovin, here's mine :)

    I too love the RT brushes, I found an amazing site where people all over the world can get them for american prices so if our getting anymore check it out, i ordered 5 brushes waiting for them to arrive, they gave me a code after i purchased, for $10 off orders over $40 so its even cheaper. Will blog when I receive them but for anyone who wants the code before m review here it is :) DWG457

  16. I've finally seen the Real Techniques brushes here in Ireland, cannot wait to try them. I think this one will be one of my first purchases!
