Review: Real Techniques Stippling Brush
I've been hearing alot recently about how using a makeup brush is a better way to apply foundation than your fingers or sponges. I decided to jump off the cliff and try the Eyes Lips Face(elf) stippling brush because I wanted to test the new method. I didn't look back. Then I became bored and bummed because it began sheddng and made my foundation streaky.I researched about some better brushes. I realized the Mac and Sigma brushes were a no go because they are too pricey. I was watching a youtube video(not sure who it was) and the person seemed to really love the Real Technique Stippling Brush, so I figured why not? At $8.00 at Ulta, the RT brush was a good deal lucille. I received it in the mail about 4 days later and had to test it out right away. I used the brush to apply my CoverGirl Natureluxe Foundation and.. WOW...I was fascinated about how well the brush blended my foundatin-no streaks, spots, shedding, nada! It gives flawess application, but it's also soft and dense. Another thing about the brush is that the handle is long for more comfortable use. The next characteristic is a matter of opinion because the brush stands on its own. Now, if you have all of RT's brushes then that's awesome because they can all stand up on the vanity. On the other hand, if you have a container to store your brushes in, the larger base may not neatly sit in the holder.
