    Comments about Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set:

    Love these brushes. I have several real technique brushes and a lot of high end brushes. The real techniques sponge is amazing and is so soft. I had one before that was a little dense but this one was a perfect dupe for the beauty blender. The concealer brush is great too but the star is the expert face brush. Blends foundation so smoothly.

            Quality of the expert face brush isn't as good as it used to be. Bristles are not as dense and firm. I have one I bought about a year or so ago which has much denser bristles.

                        Hi MrldCtyGirl,

                        At this time, the drying stand does not have drainage holes in the bottom. What I recommend doing is rinsing it out with hot water about 1x/week and letting it dry upside down.

                        Thanks!

                        Hi Evelyn,

                        Yes - the larger brush is actually our Expert Face brush, which is perfect for foundation blending and application.

                        Thanks!

                        Thanks for your interest in this set - it's got some of our best selling brushes and everyone's favorite, the Miracle Complexion Sponge! This is meant to be used for foundation, concealer and certain trends like contouring or baking.
