I recently had to RIP my favorite powder foundation brush. And, when I went to Ultra to repurchase it, it was gone. Finding a new powder foundation brush gives me anxiety (what doesn't though really?!). Finding a brush that limits fall out of the product, with soft cruelty free bristles, that applies it nicely and doesn't cake it on? That's a lot, and it's overwhelming. So, I stood at Ulta for like, ever, looking at brush after brush after brush and settled on the Instapop Face Brush by Real Techniques.
This brush has an extreme taper that allows for full-coverage powder application. It says that it's best for loose powders, but I've found that it works great for my pressed powder too. The tapered head really does allow for a full coverage application. I notice barely any fall out with my makeup, which I love. Less mess and less money lost! The head is thick and full of bristles. What's cool about this company as well, is that they color code their aluminum handles, so you know which brush is for what type of application.
Let me tell you the best part though, ALL OF THE REAL TECHNIQUES PRODUCTS ARE ON SALE! When I bought it, it was $10.99, and now it's on sale for $6.59! They have the oval brushes I really want to try too. My blush brush is going and they have a nice one on sale. With these prices, I could buy a few for blush, bronzer, highlighter, finishing powder... all the things!
Again, Christmas is coming, and these would make great gifts! They even have like mini ornaments, all packaged for gift giving, of some of their best selling face brushes and sponges. You really can't beat the prices right now, and now is the time to shop for those makeup loving ladies in your life! And, with prices like these, you can afford to stuff your stocking with them too!
