    Comments about Real Techniques Setting Brush:

    Purchased this brush to use with my banana powder to set the concealer under my eyes. I was originally using an Elf brush - actually think I prefer the Elf brush because of it's size. This brush is super soft, easy to use, just a little smaller then I was expecting (ordered online).

          I was using this brush to apply setting powder to my under eye but have switched to using it for highlight. Such a great little brush!

                        This is great for exactly what it's made for. Setting under eye concealers. It's very soft and picks up the perfect amount of product. I use it with my bare minerals mineral veil and it works wonderfully. It's so soft and doesn't scratch at all. It's a perfect size and is so affordable! You do not need to spend 35 bucks on brushes to get quality!

                          I was just wondering which brush is better for use with mineral veil. This one or the powder brush option.

                          Thank you

                          I'm planning on purchasing the "sculpting brush" from Real Techniques to contour my face with bronzer.
                          I was wondering whether the "sculpting brush" or this brush (setting brush) would work best to contour my nose, as well as blend? What would you recommend for contouring the nose with bronzer?

                            Hi Beauty Love,

                            That is such a great question! I had to stop and think for a moment because I love BOTH of those brushes so much! The Sculpting Brush is going to be much better for the larger areas of your face (cheeks, forehead, chin) where you want that contoured look. But, I think you will want a smaller brush head for contouring your nose and you will probably see better, more precise results with the Setting Brush.

                            One other brush you might want to consider for contouring your nose is the Foundation Brush. It has angled bristles (like the Sculpting Brush), but is not quite as large. I think you would be happy with either the Setting of the Foundation brush - and please let us know how it works for you!!

                            It is a bit too large to use for eyeshadow. It works best for a controlled dusting of setting powder or highlighter.

                            Because Setting Brush is designed for use with powder formulas, we do not recommend using it to apply liquid concealer. Instead, use a concealer brush like the Detailer Brush, which is included in the Core Collection:

                            Due to its smaller size, this brush works best for precise, controlled application and blending of highlighter or setting powder. For bronzer/contour application, we recommend a larger angled brush like Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki Brush (Item #: 2269621) for best results:
