I promised to write about my latest brush find: Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman: Your Base/Flawless, Expert Face Brush. I ordered this from iHerb and it costs $8.99. I use it for liquid foundations and I love the finish it gives.

This brush is quite small and I thought that it's too small for a foundation brush, but it's actually a perfect size for me. It's firm and super soft (taklon bristles) and it hasn't shed any bristles when I've washed it. It's 5 inches long. I don't like long handled brushes 'cause I keep banging them against the mirror when applying make up. This handle is very sturdy and it stands by itself on your vanity table (but it may be too wide if want to store it in a brush holder).
I really, really like this brush. I guess this is my HG foundation brush at the moment. So far Expert Face Brush has warked with every foundation I've tried. The result is even and it gives nice coverage. And with this I've finally been able to get Illamasqua's Skin Base to work as it should. I recommend this warmly to anyone who's seeking new foundation brush. It's also very affordable.
