My Favourite Real Techniques Brushes

Tuesday, October 23, 2012



I have to be honest and say that it took me quite a while before I parted with my pennies
and bought any Real Techniques Brushes, when they first launched everyone went mental for them 
(and rightly so) but as brushes isn't something I am ever all that short off I held off until Boots did a 3 for 2 offer and that wasn't yesterday.


Over the course of this year I have slowly and somehow accumulated the entire line...okay slight exaggeration I don't own the lash/brow comb and last week saw me go back re-purchase two brushes
I already own so if that isn't brush love (did anyone ever read about the lady who thought a roller coaster was her boyfriend? I'm sure I also read about someone who married a dolphin? I'm not marrying my brushes just thought I'd share some unconventional love stories with you all.) I really don't know what is.


The two brushes that I now own duplicates off are the Blush Brush which is one of the softest brushes you
will ever encounter and as it is big, fluffy yet tapered it makes blush application a breeze.
I particularly like this brush as sometimes I like to use a matte blush in a browny pink shade to not only add
a hint of colour but to also contour my cheekbones slightly and the tapered tip gives me the precision I crave.
The other brush that is a firm favourite and one I use everyday is the stippling brush.
Initially I thought that the stippling brush was too small too be used to apply my foundation but boy 
was I wrong despite being petite it allows me to effectively and swiftly buff liquid foundation into my skin
giving a perfect finish each and every time and as the head is dainty it is great for getting into hard to reach
areas such as the side of my nose and eye area.
You can also use this brush to 


All of the brushes in the Real Techniques range are synthetic so not only are they cruelty free but they
happen to be the softest of soft in terms of bristles, they don't shed or splay and never stain even when
using highly pigmented products.

  1. I haven't tried them yet, because I just didn't know which one to get first. They all seem so great! I have a few stippling brush, so the blush one might tempt me more! I'll be in the UK tomorrow so might use my points to get this! :)

  2. I own the core collection but am looking to invest in some of the other brushes. Both of these look great but I get confused as to when I should use my buffing brush over a stippling and vice versa x

    2. @Little Miss Lifestyle - Personally I use my buffing brush for face powder or powder foundations and my stipple for cream based products but the best advice I have is to try them with different products and see what works best for you :)

    3. @Topaz - Have you tried it with cream blushes? or powder blushes for that matter :)

  6. I love them. I never get bored about reading about how great they are. I don't have a major collection of brushes like most bloggers (it seems) but i can't see that i'd want to try anything else.
    Have you got the RT Expert face brush? That's my total fav of the collection.

  17. The blush brush is a favourite of mine! I still prefer sigma f80 for foundations though.

  18. I love these brushes, they've made such a difference to my makeup. I tend to use the stippling brush to make sure my contouring powder is blended properly and the buffing brush is my firm have for base x

  19. I'm in love with these brushes, especially the buffing brush, I find it gives an 'airbrushed' finish to my foundation. I also like the tiny foundation for concealing larger areas and adding cream highlighters. When I first tried the blusher brush I thought it was going to be too small but its actually perfect. I never thought my Trish McEvoy brushes would get a rest but since buying these they've become part timers!

  21. These are the only two real techniques brushes I own at the moment, but I am very impressed so far! I want the buffing brush, but I don't want the rest of the core collection. Annoying!
