Top 5 Real Technique Brushes

Top 5 Real Technique Brushes
 I am a huge fan of the Real Technique brushes I have mentioned them in numerous favorites, hauls etc and still to this day I find myself always coming back to them. I decided to review my top 5 favorite ones which seemed a bit of a challenge to simmer it down to just 5..but I did it!

Real Techniques Blush Brush
This was one of the first brushes I purchased and it didn't take long to become a favorite of mine. It is a bit intimidating the size of it for your cheeks but I naturally have big cheeks anyways so this was perfect size for me. I am not keen on the circular blush brushes as they do make my face look tiny - this was is perfect because of the different size bristles. Its very soft and pleasant on the skin and doesn't break whatsoever after washes. It just sweeps the right amount of blush across my cheeks without looking too shaped or too much.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush
Always loved this brush for applying foundation I liked the shape of the brush it absorbs the right amount onto your face and blends in really nicely. This brush has never been a challenge when it comes to applying foundation, sometimes I find some brushes aren't enough when it comes to blending in and I have to use my finger or another brush. This one I never had that issue, it gives amazing coverage and looks very healthy on your face. It feels more like a high end brush rather than a drugstore but its the best for foundation.

Real Techniques Stippling brush
Before I got my hands on the buffing brush in the set I used to use either this stippling brush or the expert face one. This one was always my favorite out of two because I liked the results. This brush knew what it was doing I felt like it never absorbed any of the foundation into the brush it all just went straight onto my face. I always found I had remains of foundation on my hand after using this brush because it gave a great coverage with just little amounts of foundation. The only reason I wouldn't say it was as good as the buffing brush is because the bristles can look a little out of shape once used/washed and it can take a few times till it starts feeling itself.

Real Techniques Setting brush
I have heard that this brush is meant for powder? someone needs to enlighten me on how that works. I use this for blending in concealer though I feel like it gives the right amount of coverage for under eye circles. This brush is amazing for blending, I cannot recommend this enough for people who suffer with dark circles or too many light nights on uni projects like myself. I do sometimes use this to cover any blemishes or redness as well but I think it works at its best for under eye coverage. It brightens up my whole face when I use this brush. Definitely needs hyped up a lot more!

Real Techniques Detailing brush
I never really used this brush at first I sort of left it out because the setting brush pretty much covered all concealer areas for me. But, recently I thought to give this ago for those smaller areas on my face that the setting brush might not necessarily get to. I like using the detail brush for around my nose because it has the right precision and goes directly where I want it without it covering a bigger area. This is also good for tiny breakouts I sometimes get randomly around my face. I think this brush is great for those tiny areas on your face that need more of a precise attention.

That is my top 5 favorite Real Technique brushes I pretty much like them all there isn't one that I don't like using. I have heard they have brought out an eyeshadow palette which I am curious about!

What are your favorite Real Technique brushes?

  3. I think the setting brush is meant for setting your under-eye concealer with powder?! I don't use it for that either hah! I use mine for highlighter and it's one of my favourite brushes - as is the blush brush which I also don't use for it's original purpose! Ooops. Great post! I haven't tried the other brushes but now I really want to :) Xx
