Real Techniques Setting Brush Review
Brushes have a Pivotal Role in makeup . I have always believed in investing in Good Brushes to ease in application and blending products for a more natural finish . So , when we talk about “ Good Quality Makeup Brushes ” , Real Techniques needs no introduction . They have been around for a while now and have managed to win the hearts of Beauty Addicts all over the world . I picked up some of their brushes some time back and none of them has failed to perform/impress me . I am sharing my thoughts on the “Setting Brush” in my review today..

My Experience with Real Techniques Setting Brush :
Real Techniques Setting Brush is a very light weight brush with a metallic dark pink handle . The bristles are are extremely soft , fluffy and not at all scratchy . Also , they are fairly dense and made from 100% synthetic taklon . The brush has this amazing tapered shape (slightly domed) . I actually find the size and shape ideal since It allows me to have more control over application .
The setting brush helps in precise application of products as compared to a big fluffy brush . Since I have Combination Skin , I like to powder only my T zone instead of my entire face on most days . Also , It helps me to apply a light layer of translucent/setting powder under my eyes to set concealer or corrector . It also fits well around my nose area to powder it . However , My favourite use of this brush is to apply Highlighter on cheekbones , bridge of my nose and on cupid’s bow . Overall , this brush does a great job of applying powder without moving your concealer or foundation underneath.
I haven’t seen any major shedding of bristles and change in shape even after several washes This is definitely a Quality brush at a budget price. I highly recommend this to everyone looking for a small brush to set their makeup and apply highlighter .
Pros of Real Techniques Setting Brush:
- Soft and fluffy bristles
- Small size helps in precise application
- Gives perfect control in setting under eye makeup .
- Great for applying highlighter on the cheek bones
- Does not shed bristles even after several washes
- Nice quality at Pocket friendly price
- 100% synthetic brushes thus Cruelty free .
Cons of Real Techniques Setting Brush :
- Setting entire face with powder using this can take a lot of time
- Availabilty is an issue in India
Rating : 4 on 5
My Recommendation : The Real Techniques Setting Brush is a great multi tasking brush with unique shape and size . It is extremely soft , fairly dense and not at all rough/scratchy. The bristles are tapered and packed in a slightly domed shape . It majorly helps in setting under eye makeup and applying highlighter on the cheekbones . Moreover , The small size of the brush allows you to find numerous ways in which you can put this to use . I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a more precise application of makeup .
