Review: Real Techniques Blush Brush17:32
My first ever Real Techniques brush and I'm sure it won't be the last! I got this blush brush in a giveaway on The ugly truth or sweet lies blog - thanks girl! Part of the gift was a Real Techniques brush of my own choice. I chose the blush brush and think it was the perfect first brush from Real Techniques.
Most of you know that the Real Techniques brushes are from Sam and I think Nick too. They're called Pixiwoo sisters and have their own beauty channel on YouTube.
The bristles are synthetic and hand-cut. The brush is 100% cruelty-free. The handle is supposed to be aluminum and it is shaped so that it can stand on any surface. That's also very convenient, if you like to display the brush on shelves. It's a pretty pink color.
I initially thought that the bristles are not going to be as soft as they are. Part of it, because I always think that dark colored bristles are harder. I always assume that if the bristles are light color, they're soft. Well..that's not always the case. The bristles are extremely soft. Like really really soft. I love soft brushes and this one is a complete success.
The bristles are tapered, which gives a really natural application. I think this is a fool proof brush for anyone starting with the makeup application. The product is picked up only with the end of the longest bristles. Other tapered cut bristles help to blend the application. It spreads the product amazingly and it makes putting on make up a lot easier.
It's perfect for the blush. Makes it look effortless. I mostly use it for blush, but it's also great for bronzer. Especially, if you like the overall bronzed look with no lines and heavy contour. It's of course also perfect for powder, because it's so soft. You can apply the powder only to the areas you like and not on large areas like with most huge powder brushes.
The prices vary, depending on where you buy them. In Slovenia the blush brush costs around 13€ (Mojadrogerija.si, Licila.si), in USA around 9$ (iHerb.com) and in UK around 6£ (Realtechniques.com).
I really really like the brush and would highly recommend it to everyone. I think this sort of brushes are pretty affordable, yet they'll last you a really long time, if you take good care of them. My next purchase will probably be the setting brush.
Which Real Techniques brush would you recommend to me?
