Brush Care Tips

We always love sharing our tips on proper brush care, since clean brushes create the best makeup results. We suggest using a brush cleanser to wash them every week if used daily. Here are some step-by-step instructions: Wet the brush with warm water, being careful not to fully immerse the base of the bristles. Place a pea-sized drop of brush cleanser (or any mild cleanser like baby shampoo) in the palm of your hand. Swirl the bristles in the cleanser in a circular motion until the brush is fully lathered. Rinse the bristles, squeezing from the base to the tips to remove excess water. Repeat until the water runs clear and all makeup is removed from the brush. Reshape the bristles to their original form and lay the brush down on a flat surface to dry. You can also gently brush bristles on paper towel to remove buildup.

(Tip: Wash brushes at night so they are dry and ready for use in the morning.)

UPDATE 11/2014: I took a star off my review. I felt I needed to because it seems this product has changed, and not for the better.

I've repurchased 3 times since my original review, and this most recent time, about a month ago, I noticed differences. First, and most obvious, was the print on one side of the brush; it used to say "Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman." It now says "Real Techniques by Sam & Nic Chapman." I thought nothing of this until I noticed a second, very important difference- this brush hurts! When I stipple my foundation on, the bristles feel spiky and sharp, enough to make my eyes water a bit. I am still using it (part-time - I use a beautyblender, too) because it still applies foundation beautifully, but I'm disappointed in the apparent quality changes.

ORIGINAL REVIEW: I absolutely love this brush! But I have to say, the reviews are surprising to me. This is a Stippling brush, NOT a buffing brush. If you want to use a brush and 'buff' in your foundation, there is a Buffing brush in the Core Collection.

As far as stippling (picking up a small amount of foundation with just the very tips of the white fibers and gently bouncing the brush over your skin repeatedly until the 'dots' overlap to form even, 'airbrushed' or 'pixelated' coverage) goes, this brush is wonderful.

Yes, it's smaller than say a MAC 187 or the ELF stippling brush, but I find that's helpful in terms of reaching areas on my face such as the sides of my nose or under my eyes that a larger brush is too big for. The compact size and shorter bristles also make a less 'floppy' brush, with better resistance. I don't find that it takes a long time to do my whole face.

Like many other women, I was on youtube watching makeup videos and I saw so many people with stippling brushes so I decided to buy one. I had a stippling brush once by E.L.F. but I did not like it. The bristles were far too lose for me. It wasn't bad... I just prefer a brush with a little more thickness... And that E.L.F. brush was lacking. So I decided maybe a different brand would be better. Now, keep in mind that I have never really heard of this brand or seen anyone on youtube with this brush... I just looked up stippling brush on amazon and I loved the design & color so I took the chance and bought it. Let me tell you, I was so happy with this brush. It has just the right amount of thickness... Doesn't leave any annoying lines/streaks on my face from my liquid foundation. It buffs like a charm, ladies. I use a liquid foundation as well as a cream stick foundation and it blends so well.. Conceals...An incredible airbrushed look.. I threw all of my other brushes out.. This one exceeds..

Well, I had this brush for a little over a week and was really enjoying it but about the 7th time I used it bristles came out all over my face. I looked at the brush and saw that one whole side of them was lifted up and out. I ran it across my hand and the whole clump came out. I'm really disappointed. I liked the brush a lot, it made my foundation smooth and flawless but I'm not okay with a brush with a one week life span. I wouldn't buy it.

I prefer this $10 brush over my $17 doller buffing brush form Sonia Kashuk. It makes your face look flawless i swear. If you uses it the CORRECT way, you face will look airbrushed foreal. I just spread my foundation in a VERY THIN layer on a clean suface (I use a little mirror). I dab the brush in the foundation, just the very tips of the bristles are covered. Then stipple on the face NOT BUFF, its not a buffing brush. Its gonna take a while but trust me, It's worth the extra effort!

Let me preface my review with this caveat: this is the only stippling brush I have ever owned. So I'm not an expert on how this is, compared to the zillion other stipplers out there.

I bought the Core Collection of Real Techniques brushes because I had read great things from others, It did not hurt that there was a sale on them to entice me to try them! From there I added several of their other brushes to my stash. With few exceptions I have been very, very happy with these brushes! I have mostly Smashbox and Laura Mercier brushes, with some Sephora and Ulta brushes in the mix.

This brush is the best brush I've found to apply the MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation. If I'm going to use a brush, I prefer the stippler (mild to heavy coverage, depending on how you use it). I only stipple, I do not 'buff' with it after stippling like most of the Youtube Beauty Gurus do! If you have dry skin anywhere on your face, using this stippler to 'buff' is going to roughen up those areas and make them glaringly obvious. It's a little more firm and it will lift the dry areas easily.

For experimentation, I also used this with my NARS cream blush, and it looked great! It gave very precise application right where I put it. Since I did not have dry skin on that area of my face, I 'buffed' with the brush to blend the blush more and it looked very natural.

I have never had shedding in this brush, and I use it several times a week. I use MAC brush cleaner on it every time I use it (a wipe-on product) and I deep clean with brush shampoo once a week. This brush ALWAYS bounces back to the shape and texture that it started out with. You just can't go wrong with this one, and the price is hard to beat.
