    Comments about Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set:

    I use the sponge to apply my translucent powder, the tiny eyeshadow brush for my blending, and I use the brush to apply my foundation works really good. I am more than satisfied with these!

              This was my second face brush. My first one could still be used but I just wanted to buy a new one. I will keep the first one in my travel bag. These are soft and apply makeup evenly. They clean up well and stay soft and together, as in no hairs fall out. This was my first sponge purchase. I really like it!

                    This set was way better than expected. I love that the beauty blender has a stand and the brushes are easy to clean. My foundation looks smooth, does not get cake-y, and lasts a lot longer.

                        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!

                        Hi Jayda,

                        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.

                        In the Details section, it tells you what each brush is for: http://www.ulta.com/ultimate-base-set?productId=xlsImpprod15531039

                        Hope that helps!
