No7 Foundation Brush
I brought this brush and within a month of use all the glue holding it together fell apart, so now not useable.

I bought this brush in store and at first I was a bit skeptical because the packaging wasn't great. When I tried it the first time I thought it wasn't great and stuffed it to the bottom of my make up bag. However about a month later I found out that this type of brush is actually the best for applying liquid foundation and I found a new technique that I didn't know to use this brush with.
As soon as I tried it I was AMAZED. My foundation went on incredibly smoothly and looked so natural. And I know it wasn't just the foundation because it is Studio Fix by MAC, and I had a different type of MAC brush I was using with it, but as soon as I tried this brush again with the new technique I stuffed THAT to the bottom of my bag. It's honestly such a great brush and gives such good coverage, I made the effort to come on here and review it, that says something ;)
By the way this is the technique I used:
- Place some foundation on the back of your hand then use the brush to randomly dot it all over your face (not too much)
- Starting from the middle of your face, sweep the brush outwards towards your hairline, taking the foundation with you (so start from the middle of your chin, to the top of your jaw, keep moving up, middle of your nose to earlobe, etc)
- Then do the same on the other side.
This technique works great for me with this brush!
Sorry for my long review haha but hope it's helpful.

Although I tend to prefer stippling (the flat headed brush) for applying foundation I can definitely see myself using this on more often too, it does give a good even coverage which is what it supposed to do, so good product. But over all I think i prefer the real techniques brushes.
