I have been meaning to pick up some Samantha Chapman Real Techniques brushes to try them out. The Expert Face Brush seems to be getting a lot of coverage with YouTube beauty guru’s so I was delighted to have the opportunity to test it out.
Real Techniques brushes are designed by Samantha Chapman (Pixwoo on YouTube). She is an amazing make up artist and I’m sure she wouldn’t put her name to any product that didn’t meet her high standards.
The Expert Face Brush is very firm without being hard or rough. It’s so smooth. I first tried it on my sister when we were recording a tutorial. It has a broad, dense head. I loathe face brushes with long bristles so the density and shortness really appealed to me. It makes it easy to control and amazing for blending product into the skin
You can use this brush for liquid or cream foundation although I have just used the former since I’m not a fan of cream foundation. I pop a few splodges of foundation on my face and then blend with the brush in circular motion. It leaves your skin looking airbrushed. There are no detectable make-up smears in daylight or under bright lights.
The brush also stands on its bottom which is great for my make-up station – it also reminds me to clean it! The quality of the brush is excellent. It’s made as well as any top notch brush I own. It also has a aluminum handle which is light and makes it easy to use. The bristles are made from taklon – yes, I have no clue what that is either but though I would check it in case anyone asked :)
Price & Where to buy
You can buy this brush from Cocktail Cosmetcis Link! It costs €12.36/ £9.95 / $15.23 which is an absolute steal for the quality of this brush. Think I might try more of her brushes.
There is also a video on how to use the brush – will leave it below to save you the trip :)
Has any tried this? What’s your favourite foundation brush?
