This set is gold! Softest brushes ever and the sponge is great. I like that the sponge doesn't steal too much product from you and the brushes work perfectly for what their intended for. It's a nice set to try their brushes out. Fair prices as well.

I haven't got this exact kit, but I do have these brushes and sponges that I bought individually. I'll start off with the sponge since that's the one I use the most. I use it to put foundation on, concealer and even to bake! It works perfect and the shape of the sponge helps to get into areas like underneath the eyes! The face brush, I have used for foundation once before, and although I do not like putting foundation on with a brush, I did like how this brush applies it. Last but not least the "eye" brush, I'm not sure if it's used for eyes, but I think it makes a pretty great blending brush for me!

I expect Real Technique’s brushes to be soft, and these lived up to those expectations! They help your product glide on with ease. For the price of this set, I believe it is a good buy! I was pretty satisfied with the results of the brushes—On the other hand, I was not overjoyed with the blender. It is the only tool out of this set that I do not use. I have seen all the hype about it, and was excited to try it, but after doing so, I will continue to use my the original beautyblender® pro. The shape of the blender is great, but I am not a fan of the feel, and the way it makes the foundation appear.

I own a lot of brushes, but I tend to reach for my Real Techniques brushes the most. They are all made with synthetic bristles which work really well with cream products. They will work with powder products too but truly shine with cream or liquids. 

All of the brushes have densely packed bristles that are very soft, even on sensitive areas like around my eyes. 

I have multiple sets of the base brushes as well as the setting brushes. They're just really, really nice for the price. Clean up well, never shed, even after years. I think I've had some of my brushes for 5+ years. Only complaint is that as the brushes get older, the black, rubbery bases start to kind of flake or get a bit tacky? Not sure why but it doesn't affect the performance, so I just keep on using them! 

I've bought sets for friends and replaced all of my mom's old brushes with them. Everyone loves them.

This combo is everything you need for foundation.

This set is a must have for beginners and pros alike! When I first got into makeup I had no idea what applicators and brushes to purchase, until an employee at my local drugstore introduced me to the real techniques blending sponge. I have been repurchasing this sponge for almost two years and have never been able to find something better that’s also affordable. The blending brush is an essential to my makeup bag and i use it for a variety of reasons whether it be a cream concealer, blending bronzer, or sweeping on some pressed powder, this brush is very useful.

Great quality foundation/concealer set for an excellent price. The foundation brush is my goto, and I love the beauty sponge as well. I don’t use a brush for concealer, but I have found other uses for this brush (contouring my nose). Love the set!

This Real Techniques Ultimate set is hands down the best brush set purchase I have ever made in my life. The Expert Face brush flawlessly applies any brand of foundation, no matter if it is high end or drug store. The sponge having a flat side gives you endless possibilities for uses from foundation to baking to contouring. The Deluxe Concealer brush instantly blurs out dark under eye circles or I have even used it to give the perfect nose contour. You won't regret this purchase!  Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set

Do you guys prefer to use a sponge or brush for foundation?
Anyone know any cheap makeup brushes? Real technique brushes are a little out of my reach.

I’ve never tried real techniques products before. Are they good? And is the sponge like the beauty blender?
