Being a long time fan of Real Techniques and being a daily 'contour-er' as myself, you can imagine my excitement for this release of the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush Set. This set contains three brushes meant for contour and highlighting. Like all Real Techniques Brushes these have cruelty-free synthetic fibres. All the bristles are high quality, super soft but firm with that duo-fibre brush look. Let's go through the individual brushes shall we?

Real Techniques Sculpting Brush. This soft angled brush is perfect for applying cream or powder contour product under the cheekbones to make them pop. It is densely packed which means it is also suitable for applying, buffing and blending product. Use small circular motions to blend that contour into the skin. I believe it can also be used to apply foundation due to the compact bristles. It is incredibly soft and gentle. It can also be purchased separately for £9.99. - link

I've compared it to the Zoeva 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek Brush above. The Real Techniques Sculpting Brush is a lot more dense in fibres and softer too. As opposed to providing 'sheer' coverage, the sculpting brush provides a good amount of colour. For contour use, I suggest using a light hand and build product as required!

Real Techniques Fan Brush
Real Techniques Fan Brush. Oh how I've waited for a fan brush that I like. This brush is for applying a light dusting of highlight powder high on the cheekbones. It is good with well-pigmented highlight shades eg. NARS Albatross Blush. It can also be used to apply a light dusting of pigmented blusher on the cheeks. It is quite thin so don't expect too much coverage with this one.

Real Techniques Setting Brush. If you want to apply your highlighter with a lot more pigment use the Real Techniques Setting Brush. I have compared the brush from this set with the one I have acquired separately and I find that somehow the bristles of the one in the sculpting set are less dense and provide a sheerer coverage. Nevertheless it applies more pigment than the fan brush and remains firm in my daily contour routine.

I'm really excited about this contouring set from Real Techniques. The Real Techniques Collectors Edition Sculpting Set is available online and in Superdrug Stores from £20.99 - which is quite a good deal for high quality brushes.
