I personally prefer MAC brushes but this brush is still amazing. If you want to own quality brushes but don't want to/can't spend lots of money then brushes from Real Techniques are the real deal!
I have this and used this for a long time before starting to collect MAC.



Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques -Expert Air Cushion Sponge

on 8/27/2018 1:54:00 PM

Holy Wack, Batman! I purchased several Real Techniques brushes thinking newer would be better than the originals I've had for a few years now. Not so much. But this.....this one little gem made up for all disappointments that day.

I have used cushion compact foundations but haven't found one that I want to commit to. So I have not used this with a cushion compact. I have, however, used this with liquid foundation. AND I'M BLOWN AWAY. I'm literally going to stock up on this in case they change something.

I generally use a brush to apply any type of foundation. I finally achieved the beautiful, poreless complexion so many people credit to a certain overpriced beauty sponge. I have tried so many sponges, tried them wet, dry, etc. and I am left wondering how I can be soooo bad at applying foundation. Good news: it's definitely not me. Also, the constant bouncing and amount of time it takes to use said sponges irritates my sensitive skin.

The Air Cushion Sponge is one of the few tools I've used that really stretches foundation giving a beautiful finish with less product. Layering is a breeze, each layer applies as beautifully as the first. A bonus is that the sponge does not absorb product. I use my sponge dry. I even use my sponge to pick up some setting powder and gently pressed into foundation. Beautiful.

The sponge is really, really soft and does not irritate my super sensitive skin. Awesome!

Of all the things I've tried in the last year, this is hands down the best surprise!!!!

My goto face brushes are all Real Techniques. I even prefer them over all the more expensive brushes including the boutique brands. The pink sparkle handle brushes are ineffective and I have relegated them all for use in detailing our vehicles. They are decent at removing dust. Other than that, huge disappointment. Next!

I don't get the hype about this brush. Yes, it's soft enough and yes, it's fluffy. But I don't think it does the job all that well. It only (kinda) works for loose powder all over your face. I find that it picks up way too much product, but barely deposits any of it. So in my experience, it just picks up a whole lot of product and wastes it. I just really don't understand this brush or why anyone likes it. I think it might work well for blending out harsh contour lines, blush and highlight. But do you really need an extra brush for that? I don't.

A great alternative to the Beauty Blender (which you’ll never convince me isn’t an absurd price for something you’re supposed to repurchase every 3 months). I use the flat side for foundation and the pointed side for applying concealer around my eyes, and it works just fine. The only downside to using this damp is it can potentially sheer out foundation too much, especially ones with a watery consistency, and using it dry may soak up too much product at times. Otherwise, good stuff!
