Review: Real Techniques Brushes #2.




I've blogged about the Real Techniques brushes before, but I recently got the three new brushes and wanted to share my thoughts. I think I have every brush from the collection now, including two Stippling brushes, who kind of sums up my thoughts about Real Techniques. I adore everything about them, the colours, the handles, the brushes themselves... (oh and I love Sam Chapman and Pixiwoo!).

I don't really wear eyeliner, apart from a small amount under my eyes (usually MAC Groundwork Paint Pot) and the Fine Liner brush has been perfect for this. It's allows such precise application of eyeliner, I used it with a gel liner today and I was so pleased at the results. It also means I can get in between my eyelashes to give my eyes a bit of definition. If you're hunting down an eyeliner brush, then this is for you.

I was really looking forward to trying the Setting brush as I wear highlighter daily and I find my blush brush is slightly too big for this. The Setting brush means cream or powder highlighters can be applied so easily, and this is usually what I use this brush for. The best thing about the Real Techniques brushes is that they are SO versatile, one minute I'll be using the Pointed Foundation Brush (in the Core Collection) for concealer and then I'll find it works great for powder under the eyes. I've also heard MUA Wayne Goss uses the Kabuki brush for foundation, who knew!

The Expert Face Brush was the brush I was most looking forward to trying, as many have said that it rivals the Buffing Brush (Core Collection) for foundation. I actually have been using the Expert Foundation brush for powder, it's especially good for getting in to areas around the nose and giving a flawless finish. I do love this for foundation too, it provides such a quick and flawless way to apply foundation. I'm looking forward to using this with cream blusher too.

I hope Sam Chapman brings out more Real Techniques brushes soon as they are my favourites. They are so affordable and incredible quality. They're easy to clean and still feel silky soft after washing.

What are your favourite Real Techniques brushes?

  1. I'm a huge fan of the brushes myself!
    The fine liner brush looks like such a waste of packaging though - not very eco-friendly!

    I adore the brushes though and I hope there's more to come!

  30. Is the expert face brush good for liquid foundation?? I didn't know which to get whether the expert face brush or the buffing brush. Is it worth getting the core collection for the buffing brush??
