    Comments about Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set:

    I use a very heavy cream foundation & have applied it with a sponge for over 3 decades. At my daughter's recommendation, I tried these brushes. They worked great & the coverage difference was significant. My application never looked better. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

      Comments about Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set:

      I love the sponge. I've owned a high end beauty blender and a low end Claire's teardrop sponge and this is the best ever. The sponge is soft and has a great shape to blend everywhere. The brushes are ok. They leave kind of a streaky finish and I use the sponge to finish but they work great with powder and are very soft. I will test it with some different foundations and see if my opinion changes.

        Comments about Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set:

        I only started using brushes within the last few years for my foundation. I tend to use more than one shade since my face has more than one hue, this trio helps with blending the products I use to cover and achieve a natural look.

          They say brand brushes normally work best but real technique has yet to let me down. I normally apply my foundation with a beauty sponge but once I tried this brush and the way it applies soo smoothly I can't go back to my sponge

            Comments about Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set:

            This was my first time testing this brand and I was pleasantly surprised. I love the feel of the brushes and the even application that the sponge offers. I can use the buffer brush for liquid foundation or for powder products like setting powder or bronzer. The only issue I have is that I don't like the concealer brush for concealer. But I'm sure I can find another use for it, like highlighting.
