I’ll keep this one short and sweet because we already know that Real Techniques are a great brand. We already know that as a brand that is designed by Sam and Nic Chapman we will always get results driven brushes but wait for the mic drop when it comes to these babies because honestly at €15.99 each they are a total steal.
Nobody said that choosing a brush was easy but what we have here are five brilliant brushes looking all cute and clean.
They didn’t stay that way for long as I put them through their paces. Here are my thoughts in order of preference of brush ( they are all super but like your mother had a favourite child I have a fave brush pecking order )
First is the blush, the reason I love this is that the slightly triangly head means you won’t go hardcore aunt Sally with the blush, I’ve tried it with Mineral, powder and cream and it performs amazingly.
Next is the contour. Need cheekbones? This one sculpts the face and jawline like no other. The densely packed bristles means that the cream contour worked like an absolute dream.
The Fan was next… glitzy , matte, glam, understated powder highlighters all appeared flawless with the help of this. Creams I didn’t feel worked as well but the powders were light and evenly applied regardless of the finish required. Iced donut? Check . Slight highlight? Check.
Next up the powder one .. great for adding a little bit of colour to the face in light sweeping motions and also for packing on a mineral finishing powder.
Lastly the foundation. A powder foundation I thought worked great with this. I found it absorbed a lot of the liquid and was a bit hard to clean. But I tried some mineral powder foundation and it buffed it in well. Coverage would be the only issue with this brush I feel.
All in all a stellar collection of brushes at ab affordable price. Cruelty free and absolutely the prettiest addition to your make up bag for SS18
