I use this product mostly for powder eye shadows. The brush picks up the eye shadow well, but sometimes there is fallout, which is expected, but can be annoying.

        Doesn't have many uses

        By Tiffany

        from Columbia, SC

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Real Techniques Shading Brush:

        The size and shape made it look like a good shader brush for the lids, but the bristles are way too soft to apply enough shadow. It's not big enough to be a good blending or crease brush. The only use I see me getting out of it is blending out the outer V, possibly the lower lash line. I'm okay with it since I got it for $3 something during a BOGO sale, but it isn't worth full price.

                    This brush features a small, soft and full brush head that is ideal for shading and blending eyeshadow and shading and blending small, hard to reach areas. You can try a small brush like this or the edge of the Bold Metals 301 Flat Contour Brush to contour along the nose:
