Review & Usage
Real Techniques Setting Brush is one of the brushes that I use on a daily basis. The ultra-plush bristles are made from Taklon — the softest type of synthetic fiber I’ve ever encountered. Now, don’t let its small size fool you, this is yet another true multipurpose brush!
Here are some of the things you can do with the Setting Brush:
- [main usage for me] blend out concealer under the eyes or everywhere else on the face
- apply highlighter above cheekbones
- apply eyeshadow as a wash of color
- contour the sides of the nose
- set makeup with powder
What I love so much about this brush is its softness. It feels like a feather on the skin and it blends whatever product you are applying like a pro; be it cream or powder. No cakey or heavy finish, just flawless, smoothest result, every time. The tapered shape also allows you to reach the hard-to-reach crevices of the face and/or apply products on targeted areas with precision.
The pink aluminum handle is super lightweight and well-balanced, though it cannot stand on its own like most Real Techniques brushes. It washes well, dries quickly, and retains its domed shape even without the Brush Guard. It doesn’t shed or absorb product like natural hair bristles. I can honestly say that this is one of the greatest, most affordable quality brushes I have ever come across.
All Real Techniques brushes are cruelty-free — not only do they make your makeup look great, you will also feel great using them!
