I bought these when I broke up with Tarte after repeated horrible customer service (I should've listened to the entire internet that warns about them). Enter Ulta and Real Techniques to save the day! Wow! For a fraction of the price I got these great brushes. I'm a fan of RT's other lines, but am super-impressed with Instapop. The angled head and soft bristles are incredible. I initially bought the Face and the Blush brushes, but found that this wider/bigger Face brush works better for blush on me than the Blush one. Application is fantastic, you can do concentrated or light washes of color, and the bristles blend everything in so well. Another plus is that it didn't suck in all the product as I applied. It made layering blush, blending it, then adding highlighter a breeze. Washing is easy, no shedding, and they dry fast. I'm so happy RT brought out these angled brushes, you've got to try these!
I was excited for this brush because I LOVE all the insta pop eye shadow brushes. The insta pop face brush, which is to be used with powder, does pick up powder but doesn't apply it to my face. I pressed the brush into my loose powder, tapped off the access, it looked to still be a good amount of powder on the brush, I pressed the brush on my face and powder flew everywhere. I was in a cloud of powder. So disappointing. I tried it several times with the same results. I threw it away since I purchased it on sale and the price was super low.

This brush holds product well. The way it's made, it gets into all the nooks and crannies of your face.

Amazing brush it does what I need to do to put on my powdered make up. I use it to apply bareMinerals loose powder and works perfectly. You can't help purchase this product for the price and it's well worth it.

When I 1st saw this brush I had to have it because I knew it was a win! I use this brush every time I set my foundation. It's the perfect brush for loose powder or applying blush. There's a smaller version of this that's made specifically for powder blush and it's also a win. I got them both on sale too! My only complaint about this & almost all of my RT brushes is that the handles are so big & take up too much room in my brush holders. RT brushes have a very trademark appearance to them that we all recognize whenever we see them displayed anywhere & I love that, but I do wish they weren't quite as chunky.

I use this brush with my Too Faced Milk Chocolate Bronzer and these two together are PERFECTION. This brush is extremely soft, high quality, and evenly applies the bronzer. I always have a back up of this brush in my collection. Real Techniques makes the BEST brushes, IMO and they are so reasonably priced. I think I own one of every brush that RT makes because of the quality. Their miracle sponge is one of my favorites as well. 🏆💯

I needed a new brush to apply powder and mineral foundation and this one was great! I can get the same full coverage that I love and it applies very smooth and the shape is super ergonomic. Replaced my ex-favorite brush!

Not happy with product
Lyns from Detroit, MI
I use this brush to set my foundation and it works great! Couldn't be more happy with how this brush grabs on to powder and firmly presses it into the skin. Can't go wrong with purchasing this brush!

I loveeeee these face brushes. I use them for blending out foundations, and concealers. I also use it to press the press powder to the skin.

Soft brush applied powder even with no clumping in lines or pores.
Rose from Los Angeles
I specifically bought this for powder foundation and now that's all I have to wear. the amazing brush feels as soft and applies as well as an IT brush but for a significantly lower price.

I purchased this to apply pressed powder. The bristles are way too short and upon application, the brush shed all over my sink.
Kerria from Cleveland, MS
I used this brush to apply my foundation after I'd applied my tatcha primer. It went on smoothly and took less time then it's ever taken me in the past with beauty blenders and other brushes.
Taje from Baltimore, Maryland
This is the best foundation brush I ever had & with a very reasonable price! This makes my face looks so flawless & airbrush! I highly recommend you get it 😌

I purchased this brush in 2017 and the others and used them maybe once. However I wasn't obsessed with brushes with this shape nor did I fall in love with it. Recently After reading the comments and reviews I decided to try this one as a brush for setting powder since the shape allows flexibility and it was perfect. So many of the reviews stated how great it was for powder. So that got me thinking ....I then chose to use the pink one that says blush to apply my foundation and the larger eye(purple) one for concealer. Buy one get one free made and points and a coupon made this even sweeter! I now have the perfect set for quick application and travel.
Always a plus that they stand up on the counter too!

This brush was recommended to me from someone who sells high end makeup. They have their own makeup brush line, but she prefers the real technique brushes. They are good quality and reasonably priced.
