      Comments about Real Techniques Shading Brush:

      I need multiples of each brush I buy, so I bought two of these to see if it was worth buying more. This brush is stiff and the bristle texture is rough. It picks up TONS of shadow, but doesn't deposit much on the lids, which wastes expensive shadows. Most of the shadow will end up as fallout on your lashes and cheeks. You must be *extremely* gentle patting shadow on with this brush, otherwise it's stiff bristles will scrub your eye shadow right off. I have a couple other of these inexpensive Real Techniques brushes which are better quality, but this one sucks. :( The inexpensive Ulta brushes, It brushes, and even ELF and no-name brushes I have are much better. If you're looking for an inexpensive brush, skip this one.

                I see Sonia Kashyuk's brush everywhere used as the brush for the eyelids, could not get it. Tried this, very pleased and both are inexpensive but this even more so.

                      I use this brush every single day. You can never have enough fluffy shadow brushes. It's perfect for applying eyeshadow in your crease for a more precise application. I also use it to help blend everything out.

                        Comments about Real Techniques Shading Brush:

                        I am a makeup beginner who up until now have stuck with the less expensive E.L.F. brushes. Although the bulk of my makeup brushes are still E.L.F., through experimenting with different looks I found that I needed something else to work with different textured products.

                        I absolutely adore this 'Shading' brush for pretty much my entire eye shadow application. (Probably not suppose to but I do). The bristles are really soft but firm which I feel gives me more control over the quantity of the product I apply. I found this brush works particularly well with some of the creamier shadow products (ie. ColourPop Super Shock Shadows). It effortlessly grabs just the right amount of product and applies evenly & easily.

                        I haven't figure out the whole blending thing yet but this brush has making applying shadow to the crease not so scary! A+++

                          Comments about Real Techniques Shading Brush:

                          This is a small shading brush. If you're looking for something to blend a lot of surface area, this probably isn't the brush for you.

                          That being said, I use this brush every time I wear eye make up. I use it to apply a single wash of color (or two) and blend it out. The bristles are soft, yet very dense.

                          I gently dab the very tip of the brush into my eye shadow (matte skin toned color), and apply it to my eyelid blending it up slightly past my crease. Then I dab into a slightly darker color and blend it into my crease. It blends so well for my tiny eyelids and gives me that soft natural look that I'm looking for.
