The reason for my 5 lippie rating isn't so much for the quality of the sponge (mine is the not the porous duds that are in the pics for this sponge here on MUA), which is good imo but on how I use it. I use this dampened to apply my blush and bronzer because I have some minor skin texture issues and using brushes to apply my blush and bronzer just kicks up all my flaky skin and emphasizes texture on my skin I never knew I had. I had been trying to use the PF Butter Bronzer which never showed up on my very fair skin for some reason but when I did apply it with a brush, I found my skin looked splotchy with an emphasis on texture and dryness so out of desperation I used my RT sponge to apply my bronzer and blush. No issues with skin texture now since using this to apply blush and bronzer and the PF bronzer finally shows up on my skin! I've had no issues using this to apply my foundation either. I love the super squishiness of this sponge. The only con I would say is that I find it a little too large to use on the under eye area without risking removing eyeshadow.

I think they shouldn't have called it a foundation brush. It's just not good for that purpose, IMO.
BUT! it's so great for contouring the areas on your face (except the nose). I apply a line of powder contouring and blend it with RT contour brush. My contour lines look not muddy. They look natural as possible and well blended.
If you want to contour your jaw line with this, I would say go for it! I tried to contour my jaw line with many other brushes but it never looked right. If you use this foundation brush and a brush for blending you will see a satisfying result! My search is over for my whole lifetime.

Another great brush for a fair price!
The sisters recommend it for setting your makeup but I use it for applying my highlighter. It takes a good amount of product and applies it beautifully.
The brushes recommended for highlighter I have are too big. I need a brush which applies the highlighter more precisely and not on my cheeks as well.

This is for the powder brush (100).
This was the only brush from the Bold Metals collection that interested me. I have the F30 by Sigma (good brush), the powder brush by the regular Real Techniques line (orange color, can be bought separately) and that's it.
This one is so different from them.
First of all, it looks like it costs alot more than you would expect if you didn't know the brand or the price. The bristles are white which I like because I can see if any product (foundation, concealer) made its way from my face to this brush while setting/powdering/blending.
Second, the bristles are sooo soft. Softer than my other two powder brushes. Powdering is now a welcomed step, thanks to this baby. I am careful while using this brush which is also a plus since my foundation/concealer don't move/end up on the brush (they do when I Sigma F30 and RT Powder Brush). That's because I want to feel the soft bristles. I don't know how else I could explain how this changed the way I applied powder products.
The results are always stunning: Less powdery, not cakey. And let me tell you this is the first time my makeup actually looks not powdery/caked. And I not only tried the other two mentioned powder brushes, but also RT Expert Face Brush, Stippling Brush, Buffing Brush, Lamora Flat Kabuki/Tapered Kabuki Brush.
Thank God I was so impressed by the design that I bought a backup in case RT decides to discontinue or change this fabulous brush (though at this time I didn't tested the brush yet). It's my HG powder brush and I never could said that about any of my previous powder brushes.
