        I luv the buffing brush and I wish RT sold it as an individual brush. I want to buy a few to have and I don't want to have to buy a whole kit every time.

            I wish RT sold the Buffing and Contour brushes individually/separately. I would buy more of both as I use them daily and to save time from washing them frequently, since I only have one of each. I have no use for the other brushes in this set and the holder is not a necessity. The Buffing brush is wonderful to apply RCMA's Color Process Foundation and the Contour Brush is very versatile.

                      Hi there,

                      For this set, I would recommend using the smallest brush head for concealer for smaller blemishes. If you have larger areas to conceal (like, for me, my under eyes have dark circles), so I would actually use the second largest brush head (the fluffier one, not the square one) to blend out my foundation.

                      The square brush is best for a full coverage foundation application. And the buffing brush is also perfect for foundation application; it just gives you a little bit more of a natural, airbrushed look.

                      Thanks - hope this helps!

                      Hi Sonsyanemone,

                      The Buffing Brush in this collection is my most favorite brush that we make. I think its perfect for all kinds of products and applications, and this one works amazing with all kinds of foundation. It would work well with powder foundation, for sure.

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Marie,

                      Definitely the Buffing Brush (which is the one with the largest brush head). I use this for applying my foundation every day and I LOVE IT!

                      Hi Isabella,

                      The simple answer is absolutely YES you can use this kit to blend out stick foundations. The great thing about all of these brushes is that they are so multi-functional, so they work well with creams, mousses, pressed liquids, etc.

                      Hope that helps!

                      Hi Kelsey,

                      It definitely depends on the types of brushes you're looking to fit in there - if you're using smaller eye brushes, you could probably fit about 8-10. If you're using brushes that are thicker, maybe 4-5. The brush cup is 3.5" wide, 3.25" tall and just under 1.25" deep.

                      Hope that helps!
