Real Techniques Brushes Review

I feel like at the moment Real Techniques brushes are all over the place and I thought that it was about time that I tried them out for myself. I have been a huge fan of Pixiwoo and Sam and Nic for such a long time, I really do love their YouTube channel. I really think that they were the first people that I ever watched on YouTube along with the likes of Wayne Goss and Lauren Curtis.I can remember my friends and I would rush home from school, binge watch YouTube makeup videos and then talk about them to each other on MSN, obviously we were the coolest kids in school!

When they came out with their range of brushes I really wanted to try them out because I wanted to support the people that I have been watching for a very long time. There was so many of them that I had wrote down that I wanted to try out for myself, but I wanted to wait for a while and see if any reviews go up before I go ahead and spend my money on something. Over the past few months, I have seen nothing but good things about this brand and people seem to really like their brushes, so I thought that it was about time that I go ahead and treat myself to some new brushes!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
I thought that I would mention the Expert Face Brush first because it may well be my favourite Real Techniques brush. This is a foundation brush and I think that it is particularly perfect for blending in cream foundations. I love that the brush itself is quite small because it makes it really good for getting around the nose and the eyes. I also love the that bristles are packed quite densely because it allows you to get a really full coverage finish from your foundation. I have been using this brush to apply my foundation for months and I cannot get over how much of an amazing job it does, I know that I am going to continue using this for a very long time!

Real Techniques Powder Brush
One brush that I really needed to upgrade was my powder brush. I had been using the same cheap powder brush that I bought from Superdrug many years ago and to say that it was very beat up would be an understatement. I saw this sat on the shelf and I knew that I had to treat myself to it. I really do love everything about this brush. I love the size of it because it powders the face in no time at all, the bristles are lovely and soft and most of all it seems to pick up just the right amount of product. I don’t think that I will ever need to hunt for another powder brush now I have this bad boy!

Real Techniques Blush Brush
This is a stunning brush, but I don’t use it for its intended purpose. This brush is intended to be used for blush, but I actually use it for bronzing and contouring. What I love about this Real Techniques Blush Brush is that it is tapered and picks up product really nicely. I like to use this to bronze with because I can dip the very tip into my contouring/bronzing product, then as I apply it to the face, the outer bristles, really help to diffuse the product and give you a nice and natural look. Not to mention that it is incredibly soft and washes beautifully and looks as good as new afterwards!

Real Techniques Setting Brush
I think this was one of the first brushes that I ever tried by Real Techniques and I have to admit that it was this one that completely sold me on the brand. I bought this brush for setting underneath my eyes and it does an incredibly job. I think the bristles are of an amazing quality as they are with all of the brushes and it applies my powder really flawlessly. I love the size of it because it is small enough to keep in my handbag for when I am out and about. I also really like that the bristles on this brush are tapered because it allows it to fit really nicely into the area around my eye. I have also used this to apply highlighter with and it does a beautiful job.

I have really been loving these Real Techniques brushes and they really are going to make me think twice when I am purchasing some of the higher end brushes, because these perform really beautifully. I am going to have a link to these down below in case you want to check them out for yourself and learn a little more about them. Also, if you have tried these make sure to leave me a comment and tell me what you thought about them!
