I love this brush! I don't have much to compare it to, but it's fluffy and so soft on my skin that I've begun to absolutely love powdering now. I heard about it from Tanya Burr and Zoella, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good powder brush.
The Powder Brush is HUGE and extra fluffy. It works great to dust a light amount of finishing or setting powder all over the face. Its so big though, that I can't use it to dust away any fall-out that may have occurred while doing my eye makeup. It just won't fit under there!
All Real Techniques brushes are very easy to clean and dry quickly. None of the Real Techniques brushes I have have ever shed on me, nor are any of them stained from continued use of colored products.
I have 2 downsides to Real Techniques brushes:
1) If you use alcohol or an alcohol-based cleaner to spot-clean clean your synthetic brushes, be sure to keep it away from the rubbery/soft coating on the black handle- it will melt the coating off. It doesn't ruin the brush, but you will be left with a black, shiny plastic handle with sharpish edges (this happened to my Expert Face Brush).
2) The aluminum ferrule will dent relatively easily compared to steel ferrules of other brushes. Do NOT knock the brush on the side of your sink to shake the excess water out after you've washed any of your Real Techniques brushes- it will dent the crap out of it. Don't ask me how I know. ~sigh~
Overall Real Techniques brushes are high quality, ultra-soft brushes at a great price point. I would recommend them to anyone.
Another mediocre rating from me on this line of brushes.
This powder brush like others have said I find too floppy to give me a good powder application. I am not sure what I am doing wrong to be honest, maybe it's just down to preference?
The brushes in this line really are not that bad, they are decent enough but I find that this one isn't to my liking. It's just too meh. Sorry, this is a crap review I think - very short. I use it with loose powder and I find it unwieldy and it doesn't really make the most of my expensive powder.
I also hate the thick base, I dont' want to stand my brushes up on the table!!
I love that it stands on its handle. It's super soft, big, and fluffy! Works well with my Alima mineral foundation, as well as my setting powder. Washes well and doesn't shed. Next I want to get the Expert Face Brush since everyone is raving about that. I chose to get this one over that one first because the Expert Face Brush seemed too small to use for foundation and setting powder (I like light or *sometimes* medium coverage). Oh well, not complaining about any product of this brand, so can't wait to get that brush next!
I absolutely love this brush! It's very large and soft and it's so easy for me to sweep on my pressedpowder one my whole face and neck :) it picks up the product well and it's so affordable :) I'm so glad I purchased it :)
I barely used this brush and once while washing it , it lost all its hairs , horrible, really dont know if this one was a bad one cause i have the blush brush and it s excellent.
I love love LOVE this brush.
It's so soft and just glides the product onto your skin! I'll never use any other powder brush.
Even after giving your brushes a deep clean, it's still incredibly soft! Love it.
Highly recommend this brush!
Probably my favourite brush out of all my real techniques brushes, and I have about 11 brushes from real techniques at the moment. It's large, soft and just glides so nicely on your skin. I use a compact powder and I feel like this brush distributes the powder really well. I would definitely recommend this powder brush.
Awesome fluffy brush. Good for setting your makeup with a powder, blush, bronzer or highlighter. Really soft, no shedding and it's fairly cheap!
