Rated 4.68 out of 5 stars
This entire set can be used in a variety of ways. They leave a very natural looking "blurred" surface rather than obvious painted on areas of definition, subtle beauty you could say. Also, I believe that you can use less foundation with these. I hate questions like "Describe Yourself". I am neither a brand or budget buyer. I take ridiculously long time researching and trying different products before making a decision. Sometimes I end up with the most expensive and other times economical choices. I just want the best for me.
I like the quality, size, softness of the bristles themselves, and I like the way it applies my contour powder. However, I find that the top part of the brush is heavy with the bristles and the handle is too light to balance it out, as well as too thin and small, making it hard to get a good grip on the brush. This therefore makes it that much more difficult to apply the makeup, as a steady hand is important, especially for getting a sharp contour. Although I find this to be inconvenient and somewhat frustrating, I am willing to overlook those drawbacks because I am enjoying playing with the shape of this brush and the result it provides, so I do not think I will return it. That being said, I do not think I would recommend this brush to a friend because it might be better to save your money and buy a different contour brush and not have to dea with the hastle of the handle.

I love oval brushes, But this one was terrible in how much it shed immediately at the first cleaning. I have many other brushes from several brands (including RT) that do not do this. I should have tried to return this given the terrible quality, but I was so disgusted I just threw it out. I am not going to buy any other oval brushes from RT if the brand isn't consistently making quality brushes

This is nice brush, the dense bristles make it great for blending contour into the hairline. It could be improved by making the handle a bit wider and less round, it rotates too much in my hand an is a bit hard to hold. What I do not like at all, and that goes for all RT products, is the enormous amount of waste the packing produces. The use of thick plastic to begin with, and then several additional inserts. I know it is important to display an item favorably but there are ways around it, take a cue from Ecotools, e.g.
Finally, but this is entirely a personal preference, less pink/purple, please! How about a few neutrals or matte metallics, I am not a fan of the girly vibe at all, not all customers are teenagers.

I have been using the wrong brush to contour my makeup. So I decided to invest in this brush. It's a little costly for a contour brush but it is very dense and yields perfect results.

Lia from Cleveland, OH
I love this brush. I use it for contouring, and it is perfect. Very easy to blend the contour out, sweep it down the hollows of your cheeks and up the temple. Easy to clean as well.
Tanya from Toledo, Ohio
Great brush for blending out my contour. I already had the Real Techniques foundation brush like this and loved it. I use the Hoola cream contour stick, blend it out with this brush and then use powder contour over it and blend out again with the brush. Looks awesome, very natural with this brush. 100% recommended it.
AZA from CO
Luv this brush. I prefer contour powder and this brush applies and blends the product so that it accentuates all the right features. Using a minimum amount of product this brush is just the right size to cut my cheekbones and jawline perfectly. I have quite the collection of various types brushes and this brush is at the forefront of them all. I am not a professional makeup artist but w the amount of compliments I receive I can attribute part of those compliments to the fact that this brush applies my contour powder like a champ.

An absolute must-have for contouring. I'm fairly new to makeup and this is brush works perfectly for me. Blends flawlessly, super soft!
Lyn from Midwest
I've bought and used many brushes from many companies but they all left streaks or didn't apply the product evenly, or wasted my product from it being absorbed by the brush instead of applied to my face. This is the best I've ever tried out of over 17 different brushes. I love it so much I came back and purchased 5 more ,so I can use a clean brush everyday because I only have time to clean my brushes on the weekends. I also purchased several in the other sizes and love those too and use them in many ways from eyeshadow to contouring. This brush is very easy to clean and absorbs very little product so you don't waste your foundation from it being stuck in the brush instead of being applied on your face. It does take a bit of practice because of its unique shape but it's well worth the time because the results are amazing . I get air brushed flawless skin that looks beautiful and natural never streaky or uneven . I'm not a pro by any means but this brush makes my foundation look like a pro did it every time.

I decided to try contouring and watched a makeup application video where this brush was used to blend contouring cream-to-powder. I love it! It apllies foundation smoothly and evenly and doesn't waste product. It doesn't tug the skin and is, in fact, quite gentle. This brush makes contouring and applying under-eye concealer a breeze. Given the quality, it also is a good value—not super expensive. I highly recommend it.
Kate from Humboldt County CA
I like how smooth it blends and that it doesn't leave streaks or brush marks behind.

Soka from Va
Applies evenly soft perfect
I love Real Techniques, and this brush definitely did not disappoint! It's a super high quality brush, the bristles are densely packed and very soft against the skin. It makes contouring so much quicker and it's easy to achieve a blended look with this brush every time.
Gigi from Miami, fl
I just use this to blend my contour and it cuts my blending time in half. Works great.

Erin from Nebraska
I actually use this brush for foundation and it is my favorite- it is fine enough to smooth out, but soft enough not to show brush lines
