I love using this to set my under eyes and I also use it to apply my highlighter. Does a great job

Most Helpful Criticism

Super soft


I used this brush for a long time to set my under eye concealer. It's super soft and the perfect size to fit under the eye area. However... over time I realised that because the bristles are synthetic, the bristles aren't as fine as natural hair, and no matter how gentle I was when powdering my under eye area, the brush would pick up concealer and lessen my coverage. I have dark under eye circles, so I eventually moved onto a higher end brush. But it's really nice to start out with. Great for applying highlighter too.
  1. The perfect brush to apply powder highlighter!


    verified purchaser
    I use this brush to apply my powder highlighter and it blends the highlighter perfectly! It is also the perfect size to apply highlighter to all the necessary contours.
  2. Nice


    I love using this to set my under eyes and I also use it to apply my highlighter. Does a great job
  3. Best under eye setting brush


    I love this brush and wont use any other. I've tried many but always come back to this one!
    It picks up enough product, but also blends it so well.
  4. Amazing!


    verified purchaser
    This is a great brush, I love using it as a highlighter and using it to set under eye concealer.

    verified purchaser
    i use this brush for highlighter and it’s great, super soft and works like a treat !! and really good quality for the price
  8. Love all my real techniques brushes!


    I love all my RT brushes, including this brush. It works as a wonderful setting brush! The bristles are nice and soft and works great!
  9. Perfect highlighter brush


    This is one of my all time favourite brushes. It’s the perfect highlighting brush, and I also really love it personally to add loose powder under my eye to set my concealer!
  10. A multi-tasking must-have.


    I have a bunch of Real Techniques brushes, but I think this is the one I reach for the most. As others have said, it's the perfect size and shape for setting concealer under the eyes, and the bristles are very soft.

    It's neither too dense nor too spare for dispersing a fine mist of powder, and for this reason I also use this brush for highlighting powder, contour under the cheekbones...

  12. Great


    I use this under the eyes to set with powder and it works great
  13. THE best under eye setting brush


    This is the perfect under eye setting brush! I have like 4 backups of this just because. It is the perfect size and spreads product and powder perfectly. Cannot be without!
  14. Recommend for under the eyes


    It was smaller than I expected but the brush works well for applying and setting powder under the eyes. Great size for travel or to keep in your handbag,
  15. Obsessed with this brush

    I buy too much makeup

    As someone who owns many very expensive brushes and brush sets, I can confidently say this is one of the best brushes out there. It's soft, the shape and size are perfect, it doesn't shed, it cleans well. I'm obsessed.

    This brush is the perfect size, shape and texture for setting under eyes, and a light finish of powder on selected spots around the t zone. It can also be used for all-...

  16. Best setting brush


    I use this to set my concealer with powder and it works perfectly. I wouldn’t consider any other brush for the job.
  17. PERFECT Highlight brush


    I have had this brush for years now and is the best highlight brush I have tried since buying it! Would also be great for setting under eye area.
  18. One of my favourites


    One of my favourite brushes. I actually have a few in my collection. Great for setting under the eyes, and also a good size for highlighter. Good quality and doesn't shed.
  19. Your under eye's best friend


    The shape and size of this brush is absolutely amazing for SETTING your under eyes. Super soft and great for brushing away any powder from baking. HIGHLY recommend
  20. Favourite Brush!


    This is my current favourite brush to set the make up. I have dry skin, so I definitely do not want to powder my whole face. Therefore, I really like the fact that the brush has a small head which means that I can be precise with my powder application. It is the perfect size to set the under eye concealer!
  21. must have for the kit


    super soft bristles and picks up product beautifully. I use it for setting powder under eyes and nose but also for highlight too as it packs it on perfectly
  22. My favourite brush


    I use this brush to set my eyelids and under eye area with powder. No other brush compares to this one.
  23. Perfect size for under-eyes!

    Zara (Adore Beauty Staff)

    I loooove this brush for setting the under-eyes! It also the perfect size and density to set those areas of the face that you don't want to be shiny. I've been using it for around a month now and I've had 1-2 bristles fall out but that's completely normal for a brand new brush! Plus it's pink and cute so it's a win-win.
  24. Love this brush, and can't beat it for the price.

    Emma C

    I use this product daily and don't know how I ever lived without it. I love a satin-to-dewy foundation so this is perfect for applying pressed powder to only where I need it (i.e. setting under eye concealer or across the oily t-zone). I also use it to blend and buff out the edges of my eyeshadow, or to smooth our any eye shadow creasing after a day of wear. It's petite size also makes it easy to ...

  25. The best for everything but setting


    This is one of my favorite brushes despite that fact that I use it for everything other than setting. I own two (one for my powders, one for creams/liquids) and use it for concealer, highlighter, cream contours, priming and sometimes moisturisers mixed with oils. Definitely one to have in your collection, they wash up really well too.
  26. Highlight Fav


    I use this brush for highlighter and have done for years now, love it!
  27. My secret to Foolproof highlighting


    I loved this brush so much I bought two! One for my liquid highlighter and one for powder. It just glides the product onto your skin helping achieve foolproof application. Also great if your using a setting powder under your eyes or contouring the nose with a powder or cream product. Cleans really well with Dr Bronners Castille Soap. Love this brush!
  28. Great brush!


    I bought this for setting my under eye area and now I'm going to purchase another one for applying my highlighter. It is very soft, picks up product well and after I clean it, it is as good as new. Amazing value for money!
  29. Amazing brush


    Purchased this brush to travel with as I didn’t want to take my good brushes and wow this brush is so soft and amazing to use .
  30. Great brush!


    Very affordable and blends product out so well!
  31. great brush


    This brush is the perfect size for setting under eye concealer. It can also be used to highlight the top of your cheekbones. I would recommend using it with any loose powders. It also easy to wash and dries in no time.
  32. Great value


    I love the Real Techniques brushes. Great quality for a relatively low price. This brush is nice and soft.
  33. soft and perfect size


    Multi-purpose brush, perfect for under eye setting, highlighting or even a big fluffy crease brush to blend out eyeshadow.
    Need this in your life
  34. Versatile & effective


    This brush can be used to set the under eyes & to apply highlighter. This brush only picks up very small amounts of product so you may need to apply a few layers to get the desired coverage. He brush head his small & precise that you can get a very neat application.
    The packaging claims it can be used with liquids but I have only tried powders. Like all real techniques brushes you will exper...

  35. Perfect size


    Perfect size for using to set baking powder under eye area!
  36. Best


    This is the best setting brush. I wish there was a version that wasn’t fluorescent pink- but it works very well.
  37. So good!


    This is my all time favourite setting brush for under eyes! It is the perfect size and so soft!
  38. So fluffy


    So fluffy and soft! I use this for highlighting and I absolutely adore it. Such a great quality brush
  39. Good highlighter brush


    Love this brush for applying highlighter. It picks up a good amount of product and is a nice shape to apply smaller amounts of makeup.
  40. Great for setting powder


    Perfect for using with powder especially under the eyes! I haven't found a brush that does this better. It picks up the smallest amount so you can build coverage or use to just blot away oil that has appeared throughout the day.
  41. PERFECT setting brush for powder


    It has super soft bristles and small enough that I don’t tend to over apply powder and get a cakey look, still looking glowy but not greasy with my makeup feeling set.
  42. Great all rounder!


    I’m very new to make up, but I love the way this brush applies highlighter. It doesn’t pick up too much product but gives heaps of payoff when applying. Great for beginners. :)
  43. great little brush


    I love this brand.
    i use this partucular brush for highlighter / setting under eyes / and sometimes blush depending on what im doing with my makeup.
    definitely a universal brand and quality is up there..
    I only ever used napoleon brushes but i do not mind real techniques..

    This is my number one go to brush for setting my makeup under eyes! Lovely soft bristles!!
  47. Lovely brush for the price


    Super soft, feels lovely on the skin, really good quality for the price. I'm using it for setting powder (under eyes, around nose, all over the face) and it's the perfect size.
  48. Loving my new brush


    Works great! Noticed an improvement in my eye make up with using this brush
  49. Cream or powder favourite


    Bought this brush on a whim and so glad I did. I use it whether I'm applying creams or powders, and love it especially for highlighter.



  51. For highlighters


    this brush is great for applying highlighters and also to apply powder under eyes. its size is just so perfect that it gets under the eye area and sets the powder.
  52. Does the job


    Like most RT brushes, this is a good quality brush. I use it mostly for setting my undereye and my eyelid primer and it does the job well. After some 3 or so years, however, it has started to feel a bit scratchy so it might not be as long lasting as their other brushes.
  53. Great brush!


    I use this to set under my eyes and my eyelids. It's a great brush that can be used to highlight also. I clean my brushes quite a lot and this one comes back to life after I clean it! No stray fibres, very soft too. I'm going to purchase another one, so I'm sold!
  54. Favourite setting and highlighting brush!


    This is my favourite setting brush for baking underneath my eyes and highlighting! The bristles are super soft and easily glides the product onto my face. I highly recommend this to anyone!
  55. versatile


    amazing brush that can be used for multiple things. perfect for highlighting aswell as setting the face or dusting of a bake.
  56. Perfect for highlighters


    I use this as my highlighter brush, it’s so soft and works so well it would also work perfectly as an under eye setting brush
  57. most versatile brush


    i use this brush only to do my makeup in most days. i use this to set my face, put on blush and highlighter. fast and convenient! i love it
  58. So fluffy


    The only brushes I’ll use! They are so fluffy and soft and work so well with makeup applications
  59. Love It


    I use this brush for with setting powder to set my eyelids and under eyes. Also use it for highlighter. It's the perfect size and shape
  60. Great for multiple uses!


    I own multiple of this brush because it is so vesatile! I love it for setting under the eyes, but I also find it to be the best highlighter brush!
  61. Great Brush


    I love all of the Real Techniques Brushes. For the price, they are very good quality. This brush is great for dusting highlighter, or for baking.
  62. Great Brush


    I use this brush to dust away my setting powder from underneath my eyes, works well and super soft bristles. Also works really well with highlighter.
  63. Very nice brush


    This brush really is awesome for highlighting and also setting powder under the eyes as it’s precise. After applying highlight on my cheekbones though, I still prefer to use my finger to make sure the highlighter is blended well and looks natural as the brush is too soft to blend it into the skin.
  64. Great highlight brush


    This brush is the perfect side and shape for dusting a little shimmer along the cheekbones and nose. Picks up a lot of product and disperses it evenly. Super soft too.
  65. Perfect for Highlighting


    I use the brush for applying highlight. It's a great size with nice, soft bristles, perfect for precision application of highlighter!
  66. love it


    I've tried a few different brushes for highlighting but this is the best, it grabs the powder well and distributes evenly where ever I put it, can't recommend highly enough, remember to shake the excess off before using
  67. Lovely brush


    Very good companion for a powder brush - great for setting the under eye concealer or any other tricky area. The bristles are very soft and I love the pink color. I might get another one for highlighter.
  68. Love this brush for highlighting


    This is a great quality brush! I use it primarily for highlighting under my eye and using a highlighter on the cheek bones. It is a good size and would recommend!
  69. Perfect shape brush - multipurpose


    I love this brush for a multitude of roles. It is great setting under eye products and also for highlighter products. Win-win and like all Real Techniques products - great price point!
  70. Amazing Brush


    This brush is amazing, it picks up the right amount of product and sets my under eye perfectly.
  71. Amazing brush

    perfecting skin

    i was looking for a brush for such a long time to set my under eyes area, but nothing was accurate . some brushes were too small, others were too big to do the job. this brush made my life simple. also you can apply highlighter with this brush flawlessly :)
  72. Great brush


    Makes powder highlighter easy to go on and blend! Love this brush
  73. Nice brush


    I use this setting brush for highlighter and also for loose powder in smaller areas, such as under my eyes. The brush does collect a lot of product, so if you have a highly pigmented highlighter, it will be likely that you don't need to collect as much, as the brush picks up a lot of it.
  74. Love it!


    I love the sizing and quality of this brush. These brushes are so affordable and great quality!
  75. Fantastic powder brush


    I use this to set my under eyes and as a highlighter brush. The bristles are soft, hold lots of product and the brush is easy to clean.
  76. Great all-round brush

    AC Sydney

    I mainly use this to set my under eye area but it can also be used for blush and highlighter. As with other real techniques brushes, this is very easy to clean.
  77. Versatile


    Despite the name I actually think this is a versatile product - I've used this to set concealer with powder under my eyes, as a highlighter brush, and also as bronzer brush! Also super affordable and long lasting
  78. Great Brush


    I purchased this brush just to see the quality and just love it. I use it to set under the eyes but also as a highlighting brush. It's beautiful quality.
  79. Good brush


    Best brush I have used for both under eyes and also for highlighter
  80. Perfect


    The perfect size for finishing with powder or applying powder foundation and lovely soft bristles to boot!
  81. Must have brush for powder under your eye


    I couldnt live without it, it's so cute and incredibly round and fluffy. It is like the perfect sphere and is AMAZING for baking and dusting off powder for under eyes!
  82. A must have


    This is my favourite brush! I use this every day to set most areas of my face. It feels so soft on the skin and applies the product perfectly. A must-have brush in everyone's collection!
  83. Love


    Perfect for setting the under eye area, can't live without this brush!
  84. my absolute favourite!!!!


    This is my favourite highlighter brush ever!!! Such good quality and it blends out highlighter in such a natural and soft way. Can even work with liquid highlights.
  85. Always go back to this!


    This is my favourite brush for setting my under eyes and lids! I haven’t found anything like it and have always come back to this. I have a back up of this but I’ve been using the same brush for years and it’s remained in tact. I’ve also never experienced any hair fall and the synthetic hairs stop the spread of bacteria. It is a perfect size, not too big and not too small. It also has a feather to...

  86. Best brush I own


    I use this for so many different things like powder highlighter and setting under my eyes. It is so versatile, soft and good quality. One of the best purchases I have ever made and so worth it for the great price.
  87. Great multipurpose brush


    This brush is great for setting the undereyes and around the nose but also for applying powder highlighter to cheekbones and other high points of the face
  88. Great for highlighter


    This brush is fantastic for applying highlighter and its great value for the price its definitely worth a try
  89. good for a different purpose


    i never liked this for setting my concealer, but as soon as i tried it to apply highlighter, i found it now has a better purpose. if i want my highlight to be more concentrated and precise, this is the brush i will use.
  90. Great for powder highlighter


    Love the size and bristles of this brush to apply powder highlights. Spray the brush with setting spray and you will have an even stronger glow
  91. Fave setting brush


    I use this little brush to set the concealer under my eyes. It’s the perfect size to do that. This little thing never fails me and it’s suoer easy to clean! One of my everyday staples.
  92. Multipurpose


    such a cute little brush which can be used for so many parts of the makeup application. I use it for concealer under my eyes because it is the perfect shape and size. I sue it to set certain small parts with powder. VERY good for highlight application! Highly recommend
  93. Best highlighter applicator


    This is hands down the best brush for applying highlighter anywhere on the face! Washes well too.
  94. multi purpose


    this brush is so multi purposed and is just that perfect brush to have in my handbag for touch ups. My favourite uses for it is to set under the eyes and to apply my highlight. it is brush is super soft and great quality. I have washed it about 5 times and it hasnt shed or lost its shape

  95. Good for nose contouring


    This brush is OK - Too sparse and course for setting under the eyes, which was why I originally purchased it. I couldn't really find a purpose for it, but now it's used solely as my nose contouring brush! It's the perfect size for it, and not really a good size for much else.
  96. Good addition to an existing collection


    This is a nice brush in terms of quality (nice, soft bristles and good application) however I don't seem to reach for it on a daily basis. It can be used for setting lightly under the eyes or highlight application but it's not my first preference for either. Nice addition to a expanding brush collection but not a must-have in my opinion.
  97. Not sure about this


    I am not sure how I can best use this brush. The shape of the brush is not the most ideal for highlighting for my preference. I prefer an oval shape brush or a fan brush for highlighting in general. This brush is a flat oval shape and it is not quite fluffy enough for highlighting. It is also too small for setting the undereye area.
