As someone who is relatively new to contour, this brush made the leap a breeze. Again, as someone with a petite face, it’s not too huge that it cannot fit into the hollows of my cheeks. What I enjoy the most about this brush though is that it can do so much more than contour. I use it to apply highlighter, and even sometimes blush if I’m looking for a more precise application. It blends colours smoothly without any hassle, and just like the rest of the RT collection, it cleans up beautifully without any hassle.
I got this brush in the Core Collection set and didn’t even really want it (I bought that set for the Buffing Brush) but I LOVE this brush. I don’t contour very often because it’s difficult for me to get good placement and a flattering look but with the RT Contour Brush, I can actually achieve this. It is also perfect for applying highlighter because of the smaller, more compact brush head and the way it’s shaped. I wish this brush were sold individually, so I could have 2 or 3 of them (it is also good if you are using a very pigmented blush – you can get it just where you want the colour and then buff it out so your blush isn’t too overpowering)
This is part of the Core Collection set and is not available individually.
Contour Brush is a small, domed-shaped brush that’s soft, lightly fluffy, and not too dense. The brush head is 30mm in length, 18mm in width, and 18mm in thickness. The brush has a total length of 6.25 inches/15.7 centimeters. It has a good amount of spring so it blends, but it isn’t floppy, so it still retains its shape. It fits nicely into the hollow of the cheeks, so it definitely works exceptionally well for contouring (especially with cream products), but I also quite liked it for applying highlighters on the cheek bones and down the nose as well as for applying cream blushes for a more feathery application. Of the brushes in the set, this was my favorite.
