Real Techniques' blush brush is a large, tulip-shaped brush. This is a unique blush brush because of the large size and shape, but I think these two characteristics are what makes applying blush with the brush such an easy task. The tapered shape allows blush to be deposited where you want it and the large size comes in handy for quick and easy blending. This brush, as with all the other brushes from Real Techniques is super soft. I definitely recommend this blush brush. Even if you find that it is too large for blush, this would still be lovely to use as a setting powder brush.
