Review: Real Techniques Foundation Brush
Even though the standing on it's own is a neat feature, I didn't find it all that convenient. First of all, you can't dry a brush with it standing up as the water will just drain down into the ferrule and it could damage the glue that holds the brush hairs in place. Two, even though it's fairly thick at the bottom, it still falls over. So take me, near blind without my specs, and give me a towering thin brush to knock about, well - it isn't a pretty sight. And some other negatives, doesn't fit easily in a brush roll, brush belt, brush jar etc. etc. etc. Cool in theory but not as nice in practice.
Anyway, whether or not this review made any sense is up to you. The upshot is, it's ok, but could be better. The Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Foundation Brush retails for $7.99 and can be found at ULTA.
