I've had this brush for at least four years, so perhaps my review is not very useful as I've seen that RT has updated quite a few of their core collections. The one I'm talking about is the orange brush with the black rubber handles at the bottom.

I personally think this is one of the best brushes RT has ever made and I would rank this higher than even the Expert Face brush for blending out foundation. The bristles are just incredibly soft and when I blend out cream and liquid makeup with this brush it results in a seamless finish. Because it's a synthetic brush I can apply my foundation perfectly many times before having to wash it, which is one of the cons of using natural hair brushes. Throughout the years I have never seen this brush shed a single hair, and thankfully, it hasn't become any rougher either!

I've always felt that if you had to combine the plushness of a Beauty Blender and a foundation brush together, you would get this brush. You can "bounce" this brush on the skin and it doesn't hurt. While I don't have sensitive reactions to makeup products my face can be somewhat sensitive to tactile touch; for example, if I keep patting the Expert Face brush on my cheeks for too long, it begins to feel scratchy to me even though its a synthetic. This brush doesn't give me that problem at all and so I do like to keep this brush in my arsenal for cream blush application.

Bottom line: I really love this. I can't vouch about the newest purple version but if you can snag the orange version you'll be in for a treat.

P.S. This one is just as soft as your average Hakuhodo. ;) And it's cruelty free, too!

I love this brush, and I do use it for it's intended purpose (oftentimes I don't-I find lots of different uses for brushes). The only thing I use this for is going over my face to buff out my powder after I have set my foundation, or after I have applied powder foundation. It works so well. It's soft enough not to irritate or cause flaking, but it gets the job done. And as with other Real Techniques brushes, the price is right and it holds up well to repeated washing. I have had mine for several years now, and it's as good as new.

This is one of the RT brushes where I'm like: It's a good one, but not one of my favorites. I don't buff. I have to say this because this brush is called a buffing brush. Buffing ruins the application IMO. It does a micro peeling which I don't want since I don't need tiny flakes on my face when I want to wear foundation or concealer. The bristles are very soft and easy to clean. I use this for setting powder when I need to touch up outside home. Many people rave about this as foundation brush. Maybe I'm too clumsy to use it? Yet I can recommend their Instapop Face Brush, Expert Face Brush, Sculpting Brush (yes yes yes, the best) and Stippling Brush for liquid/creamy foundation. You won't regret buying this but I can't promise that you will love it as others do.

I have had this brush for like 3-4 years and it is still good as new. It works great with every product I have tried it with. Whether you want to use it with liquids, creams, or powders, it does the job amazingly!! What I also love about this brush is that is so easy to clean and it dries so fast! A BONUS: it’s super cheap :)

I previously only used the Sigma F80 brush and Zoeva 104 brush which are touted as amongst the best of foundation brushes. My friend bought me this real techniques buffing brush as part of a set and I ignored it for months. Finally, I was in a rush one day and couldn’t find either my F80 or Zoeva brush (great luck eh) so picked up this one. When I tell you I was in shock!! It gave my foundation the most beautiful airbrushed finish. FLAWLESS. I am not even exaggerating. I looked like a doll. I began to use it more times and now I am in love. Any foundation I use it makes it look perfect on my skin in a short space of time. I think this is way better than my Sigma F80 brush and zoeva! I haven’t touched them since I started using this one. Please don’t discontinue Real Techniques!

Love using this brush for buffing in my foundation and bb cream. Prefer this brush over a beauty sponge.

I'm not thrilled with this brush. Right now I have no use for it. I wear foundation or bb cream, and I love using the RT Expert Face brush. The Expert Face brush applies foundation or bb cream flawlessly. It blurs over my pores, and really makes the foundation look like my skin.

The buffing brush does not apply liquid foundation or bb cream as well as the Expert Face brush. The buffing brush leaves brush marks, and the foundation just does not look as good as it could on my skin.

I think this could be excellent for mineral foundation, but don't know. If I purchase mineral foundation and start using this brush successfully then I'll update.

edit: I tried this with pressed powder foundation, and this brush underperformed. I had to pick up more product as my usual brush (Ecotools stippling brush) to see any of it go on my face. It was weird, like it had problems picking up powder or depositing it on my skin.

A lovely buffing brush that does exactly what it says it will do, buffs your foundation in! It doesn't leave behind any streaks and gives good coverage, it cleans easily and I can get rid of the stains so my brush doesn't look dirty and I have not experienced any shedding! It dries very quickly too! Another great brush from RT and very affordable!
