Review of Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Powder Brush by glamstep
This is a decent brush if your using it to set your makeup, big sweeping motions lets you cover your entire face quickly without moving the foundation underneath. But when I tried it for mineral foundation alone, I found it too big for my face, a sweep across my forehead deposited powder on my eyebrows. It doesn't do that when your just setting your makeup because you use it with a light hand, allowing the outer bristles to touch your face sideways. But when your using it solely to buff mu in, your trying to use the denser center portion to blend, letting the outside splay and hit the wrong parts of your face. Idk if that makes sense. But bottom line, nice BIG, soft, non shedding affordable brush. Which btw does stiffen after thorough washes. The longer bristles on the side never went back to its original softness, no matter how many drop of oils I add to my cleanser or repeat rinses. Its ferrel is also too big to fit in my daily cosmetic bag (the only real time I need a brush like this anyway-for retouches) & even takes up more than half my brushes cup on my vanity.
