I love using brushes to apply my base, especially when they make it super quick and effortless. I see a lot of hype around brushes from Zoeva, Morphe and Sigma, but since my Real Techniques collection is enough to last me a lifetime, I never actually bother to buy ones from other brands.
Recently I saw both ViviannaDoesMakeup and Lily Pebbles rave about the new foundation brush from Clinique and I immediately knew I had to try it. After testing it out for a couple of weeks, I have to say, I'm impressed...

I really like the design of the brush, it's simple but modern. The brush comes in a protective pouch which is handy for travel.

What is it
This foundation brush has densely packed bristles, surrounded by longer bristles that blend product into the skin quickly and effortlessly. It gives a flawless finish that doesn't look heavy or like there's foundation sitting on the skin. It's a cross between a buffing brush and a stippling brush. The brush is so soft and is the perfect size for my face. Suitable for all skin types.

I love everything about this brush. It really does give you that perfect finish. It may not be the most glamorous brush in the world but it sure is good at doing what it's supposed too. Well done Clinique, you have created my new favourite makeup brush!
