Real Techniques Brushes Review

I have been a fan of these brushes for a long time now. I absolutely rave about them to everybody and everyone knows that they are my favourite. I have been a huge fan of Nic and Sam for so long on YouTube, I literally grew up watching Pixiwoo after school. Me and all my friends would go home, watch the videos then go on MSN and talk to each other about them. We were the cool kids I know!

So naturally as soon as they bring something of their own out I had to buy them immediately. I haven’t got all of the brushes, because as much as I hoard foundations and the like I am not so crazy on brushes. Once I find something that works well for me, I will literally use it until it falls apart. So, I have 4 brushes that I think are staples that everybody needs.

The first one that I got was the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I needed this well just because I saw Sam using it and it buffed her Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation into her skin so flawlessly I had to go and get it. I have to say it, this is one of the softest brushes I have ever used. It is so dense and so so fluffy!
It is perfect for foundation application, I take some foundation off the back of my hand with it and really buff it in, it sheers my foundation out to exactly how I want it. The bristles also I find don’t absorb too much of the product, which many do.

The next one that I bought is the Setting Brush. This is a great little brush with its tapered shape that makes it ideal for setting the under eye area. I bought this because this is what Lauren Curtis used to apply here MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural in Light underneath her eyes and it looked bomb so naturally I copied.

Are you seeing a trend here that I purchase all my brushes from YouTubers recommendations…

Next up on my list was the Real Techniques Blush Brush. I needed this because on a night out I dropped my bag underneath the table. It opened and everything went bouncing out. Me and my friends tried to scramble everything back together but the next morning when I looked I had lost my ID, YSL Black Opium and my Tom Ford makeup brush. So, I was in need of a replacement!

This brush was for bronzing up my face, so this Real Techniques Blush Brush is perfect. It is a big brush so it doesn’t give a harsh line and with its tapered tip it blends the product in so well. I use this with a MAC Studio Powder Foundation a few shades darker than my natural skin tone and it is a match made in heaven!

Lastly I bought the Real Techniques Powder Brush. I needed this for what it says on the tin, I needed a powder brush. I had been using a powder brush that was my mums in the 90’s. It had finally stopped washing very nice and it felt like it was scratching my face so I replaced it, and I love this brush!
It is so big and fluffy and just gets the job done so quickly.

I genuinely cannot recommend these brushes enough. I have had many different brushes over the years and even though these are poles apart in price to MAC and Tom Ford brushes they really do live up to the quality.
