Comments about Real Techniques Silicone Foundation Applicator:

I don't like the outside border of material, it makes application more difficult. Unfortunately it was not a product I enjoyed or would purchase again.

    Great for slathering makeup on like spackle. I don't see how this is any better than using any flat plastic object to apply.

        Comments about Real Techniques Silicone Foundation Applicator:

        Such a mistake to buy this!
        Heard good things about the silicone application.
        Didn't realize it would be so small, legit child size.
        Took forever to apply my foundation, which would of taken half
        the time with my Morphe Buffer foundation brush. Very let down since Techniques is literally half of my makeup brushes.

        Maybe I don't know how to use. It was my first time, it just felt weird, it wasn't applying foundation easily, it was a mess

          Comments about Real Techniques Silicone Foundation Applicator:

          I found this to be a useless tool. Yes, you can use it to apply foundation to your face, but it does not blend it. The silicone has one function which is to transfer makeup to face, which I can do with my fingers (and they are free!) or a sponge, which the fine print at the bottom of the package (which I have sadly lost so I cannot return the product) says that you still need in order to blend. So, i still need a sponge no matter what and am left wondering what the actual use is, other than to be a gimmick.

              I did not like how this applied my foundation. Maybe I just didn't use it correctly. But I will not use or buy agian.

              Great for an even application. Follow with a buffing brush.

              Comments about Real Techniques Silicone Foundation Applicator:

              I love this for a full even application of my foundation. I don't use it as a blender, but to simply apply. I follow immediately with the expert face brush for an airbrushed look. I haven't gotten a better application any other way. Those that give this a poor review aren't using it the way it's intended.

                I love this! I have so many silicone blenders and this one is/works the best because of its small size.

                  It says to follow with a beauty blending sponge, so whats the point. I was very disappointed. Glad i bought this before i bout the $60 set from the prestige side.
