2 years on and look at that beauty, still perfect. I use my Real Techniques buffing brush every day for literally everything base related. I blend concealer, apply liquid and powder foundations, blend out blusher and apply setting powder. Most days it is the only brush I use, I like a simple life. Who has time for eyeshadow, I mean really. 

Even after all this time with countless washes under a tap I've not had any unsightly shedding, the synthetic bristles are still as soft as a kitten and it looks as good as new.

If you don't own this brush you need it & if you do own this brush and don't use it every damn day... what's your problem?? ;)
