Real Techniques Sculpting Set | Review

Real Techniques Sculpting Set

These brushes were originally released as a limited edition but because of how popular they became Real Techniques made them a full-time product! I got these when they were limited edition and now that they are a full time I'm so excited to review these for you guys!

On the Real Techniques website, they promise that these brushes are ultra-soft, easy to clean and are long-lasting. They also say that there will be no product build up in the brushes and that they apply makeup with no streaks and leave a flawless finish.

These brushes have 100% synthetic bristles so these brushes are 100% cruelty-free. The brush handles are made of aluminium and are colour coded, gold for face, pink for cheeks, and purple for eyes. The Handles also have the brush names on the back.

This set is available for $19 at Ulta and Target and on the Real Techniques website. I could not find it on the Boots site for UK people. You can still get it on the RT site.

Here is my experience with the Real Techniques Sculpting Set.

As I set before I originally got these when they were on limited edition release. I've had these brushes for about 2 years. I had used them much until this month. I'm not gonna lie I got a little sucked in my the limited edition factor. I didn't know how much I'd like to use a tight-packed brush for bronzer.

These brushes are so soft and apply the product so well! They are so well made! They hold up to washing and look just like new for years if you take care of them.

I've washed these about 6 times and they are still like new! They wash well and form back to shape easily. The photos in this post were taken this week. They still look brand new! I swear I use them.

The handles are aluminium which makes these brushes very light. The end of the handle is hard plastic which makes the brushes evenly weighted.

I have used the contour and blush brushes all of February and as promised there is very little product build-up! I wash my brushes once a week when they have been used to keep everything sanitary but there is never much build up and the come clean very fast!

These brushes will hold up very well as long as you wash your brushes by holding them bristles facing down so the water can't get the glue!

So let's talk about the brushes in the set.


Real Techniques describes this brush as "featuring a wide, angled head specifically designed to help create defined contours using cream and liquid bronzer or contour makeup."

I love this brush for my bronzer! I thought a slightly packed brush for contour would apply too much product or make it look too dark. It applied the product beautifully!


Real Techniques describes this brush as "it softly sweeps on powders + whisks away any excess makeup for an even finish."

I don't really do highlight so I never really use this brush but it is really well made and really soft. Maybe I'll start using it to contour my nose.


Real Techniques describes this brush as "the key to completing any look is with a controlled dusting of powder or highlighter."

I use this brush for my blush. It is the perfect size for the apples of my cheeks and applies the product evenly.


This set now comes with a brush cup! It looks so cute! I wish it would have come with the limited edition set.

Was it worth the hype? Every beauty vlogger I watched talked about RT brushes and they were right too! These brushes are amazing!

Was it worth the price? I really think that it is. This set is really nice and I think it's worth the $20. They are very nice brushes and they are now my go-to cheek brushes.

These brushes are soft and very well made. They wash out easily and always go back to there shape. They apply the product beautifully and never fail to impress!

That's it for this review. Thanks so much for giving it a read! I hope you enjoyed it! Have you tried Real Techniques brushes? What did you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
