Real Techniques Blush Brush & Powder Brush

Hello My Lovelies,

Todays post is a Real Techniques review for you all. These brushes are truly amazing and are definitely up their with my favorites like MAC. I recently purchased the Blush Brush and Powder Brush and posted about it in my recent Haul post. It was highly requested that i do a review on them, so here it is!

My Real Techniques Collection consists of -

- Stippling Brush
- Shading Brush
- Blush Brush
- Powder Blush

The Real Technique brushes i have tried already i  have been incredibly pleased about. They are very soft, pick up products properly and evenly apply my makeup on my face. I love how they all have their own name and use labeled on the handle, but i have found they could also be used for other purposed than specified on the brush. They are also very handy because they are flat at the end of the handle so they could easily stand up on your vanity if your using them or want them on display. They are very sturdy and hard wearing so if you drop them you know they're not going to snap in half :L I adore the colour range they come in from the pink, orange and purple, each colour has a specific meaning -

Pink - Your Finish Perfected
Orange - Your Base Flawless
Purple - Your Eyes Enhanced

Blush Brush

This particular Blush Brush is hand-cut to contour and define cheek for flawlessly blended, high definition results. It is incredibly soft and i love the shape of the bristle itself. It applied my blush beautifully and it looked flawless and very natural. I love how the shape of this brush could be used for a numerous of other purposes. This would also act as a perfect contouring brush as the shape of the brush curves into a point at the tips which would great the perfect chiseled cheek bones and face. I have only used this particular brush with powdered blushers but i have seen online in 'Pixiwoo's' youtube videos that they use a variety of creme and powder blushes with this brush, so it is very versatile. 

Powder Brush

This particular Powder Brush evenly applies powders and mineral foundation for smooth, high definition results. I found this brush perfect for applying my face powder and also for applying my beloved Hoola Bronzer all over my face for a sun kissed glow. It picked up the products great and distributed them on my face perfectly not leaving any cakey powder areas which we all hate. Like i said above all brushes have been used for both creme and powdered products in the 'Pixiwoo' youtube videos so that is always a plus, you definitely know they are not going to get damaged on you if you use a creme or powdered product. So they are perfect to use all year round. As the shape of the brush is very large but slightly flat it could be used to apply highligher and to contour and even blush if your in a hurry :) this perfect brush does it all :D

Also a plus is that all the brushes are made from high quality Ultra Plush Synthetic Taklon Bristles which i believe are cruelty free! These are also the same bristles which Urban Decay used on some of their brushes which is great because basically...Your getting an amazing brush, which is cruelty free which is made from high end materials for an incredibly reasonable price - perfection!!

    1. Hiya :D I got mine from my local Boots store, which is great because you can get Boots points and spend them later on :). The Blush brush was £9.99 & the Powder brush was £12.99. I havent come across any other place near me which sells them.

  20. i love the fact they are made with the same stuff from UD. means you really are getting a bargain! I also love the color guide thing too. makes it easier! I would love to know where i can get them and how much they are. I read and re-read & maybe i missed it if you mentioned that. sorry if so but thank you for sharing!
