I was searching for a brush easy to use for contouring and I finally bought this Real Techniques Sculpting brush three months ago (already!) and use it everyday since !
This brush is a big thumb up for me ! The shape is just perfect : the bristle are short, dense and there is an angle which is just perfect to apply product on the cheekbones. I do all my contouring with this brush and I love it. The only minus is that the brush is too large to contour the nose, but I’m sure you have plenty of brushes you can use for this purpose.
You can use this brush for a natural contouring and it works well with powder as well as with cream. Blending is very easy and I love the beautiful result that I met every time. Also this brush is very very soft !!
If you’re not a contouring person, you can also easily use this brush for foundation. Its shape is just perfect to apply makeup around the eyes area and the density allows a wonderful application and blending.
I do not have any issue with the cleaning of my brush, it doesn’t lose its shape and the bristles don’t fall out. Last, but not least, the price is very nice. You will love it for sure !
