    I use this to apply my presses powder and liquid foundation. I love how the bristles hold up and the sponge has peeled.

        I bought these brushes and they are great. I really don't use the orange blender much but i love the large brush for foundation and the little brush I use for eye shadow. Such a great price too.

            Not impressed with the brushes at all. Maybe I'm not using it right but liquid makeup does not apply well at all. I have dry/combo skin so I think I need to just stick to the sponges.

              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!
