NYX Professional Makeup Pro Brush 04 - Dual Fiber Foundation
I've never used a foundation brush below. I find this gives great coverage, goes on smoothly and easily. Don't know how i lived without it!

I brought this about 2 weeks ago and at first I was surprised at how soft this brush was, the handle length was perfect for me! The only downside I found with this product is that it leaves the brush marks on your face when applying foundation, generally just making it look streaky. You do have to work with it a little bit too get the result you want.

Amazing if used correctly
I've wanted a dual fiber brush for a long time just because I watch a lot of MUA tutorials and I see them use these brushes. I bought this one because I have a bit of a NYX obsession so I trust the brand. The Real Techniques complexion sponge (beauty blender) is literally my best friend, i've used it for years and i've had so many i've lost count so when i went to apply my foundation using this brush i had a panic attack i didn't know what to do!
I used the brush in a buffing motion and for some reason i just had a feeling i was doing it wrong, it basically absorbed all my Revlon Colorstay foundation and left me with hardly any coverage - it didn't look anything like how the pro's do it! I did a bit of investigating and found out that dual fiber brushes are basically stippling brushes so you have to stipple the foundation on in a patting motion not by buffing! When i did this technique my foundation looked flawless, i didn't think my Colorstay could look any better but it did, it's so cliche but my make up really did look airbrushed.
If you're looking for a fuss free foundation application definitely try the RT complexion sponge but if you're willing to spend a bit more time applying your foundation using the correct technique with this brush you won't be disappointed
