I think this is a good brush. I use it to apply powder if I'm just doing a quick touch up and occasionally for bronzer. For applying the powder the brush is very good as it's quite dense so applies the powder really well if you just want a quick touch up.
On the other hand, using it to apply bronzer isn't as great. I find it doesn't really apply it as well and it doesn't look as defined as I'd like it to look.
Overall though, I think this is a good brush for quick powder touch ups and good as a back up for contouring.
Cheap and easy to clean:)

Not a huge fan of this brush, I don't really use it. It's kind of flimsy and the bristles are too fluffy and long to contour with. It works for blending out a contour but it's still a little small for that. I like placing the contour shade speicifically under the cheekbones and i feel like this brush doesn't allow for specific placement because of how un-dense the brush is. For contouring, i prefer the elf mineral powder brush which has shorter bristles.

Iīve used it for contouring and I like it but it is not what I use it for. It is my favorite brush to set my undereye concealer, super soft, just the exact density por the purpose and also its size is perfect. However it is a pity they only sell this in a set :/

A bit different from your usual contour brush, itís still angled but is much more dense, this means you can apply more product in one go and itís easier to blend with.

Also the angle is quite subtle which makes it ideal for use on all the contour areas (forehead, temples, cheek hollows, chin, jaw, collar bone etc.) because its closer to a flat topped powder brush, but the angle is still enough to make application precise.

Cost wise, I think these brushes are about right for mid-higher end quality, I got mine in a set which was on offer so it was great value 

*TIP You can use this brush for powder or cream so itís versatile but it does pick up a lot of product so be careful when you dip it in the pan

I love this brush and I use it everyday. I like to apply light yellow concealer before my foundation to neutralize redness. I also do some contouring before I apply my base and this brush makes blending so easy! It allows me to blend in everything exactly how I like it. It doesn't scratch my sensitive skin and it's easy to wash and dry. I add a touch of conditioner to my brush then give it a final rinse and this comes out soo soft. It hasn't lost its shape either and when I blend it does so fast and it allows me to get my corrector blended exactly how I like it. I actually use all the brushes in this collection. This and the buffing being my favorite. The Core Collection is worth it for this brush. It makes contouring really easy too. Recommended!

This is hands down the best contour brush I have ever used, and is a brush I utilize everyday in my contour routine! I really love the RealTechniques brush line, and a majority of my makeup brushes are comprised of these wonderful and affordable brushes. Incredibly easy to find and pick up from my local ULTA or Kohls, plus the quality for quote on quote "drugstore" makeup brushes rivals more high end ones that I have tried. I recommend checking out this contour brush and other brushes from the RealTechniques line if you are beginner or a pro with makeup as I believe EVERYONE can benefit from this brushes!

I use this brush more for apply bronzer all over than for contouring. It does the job contouring fine, but would prefer an angled brush. Works good for concealer around the nose and eyes. Multiple used for this brush.

Yes, this brush is nice for contouring, but I would highly recommend using it for foundation and concealer. While the buffing brush gets all the hype here on MUA I think that this brush is a much better size for applying foundation and concealer. You can get right under your eyes, around your nose, even on your eyelids. The smaller size I feel is both easier to work with, and also gives a better more blended and precise finish.
