Yesterday I shared the fantastic COLAB Sheer Invisible Dry Shampoo and today I’m back with another blogger brand, this time with the amazing and affordable Real Techniques brushes by Sam and Nic Chapman from Pixiwoo (which I’ve actually never watched…whoops!) I have three different cheek brushes, the Real Techniques Blush Brush*, Sculpting Brush* and Stippling Brush*, to review.
Real Techniques Blush Brush is a large, fluffy but tapered brush, with the pink aluminum handle that indicates it is a cheek brush. This is a pretty soft brush that isn’t going to pick up an intense amount of pigment, but is great for more airbrushed and subtle finish. I love using it to sweep colour along my cheekbones, and it is great for applying powder blush on top of a cream base, or for more pigmented blushes.
The Real Techniques Sculpting Brush is a new release, and I am obsessed. This is absolutely the perfect contouring brush for me, and I love using it with the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette. It is dense enough to pick up the powder, and fits perfectly in that hollow below the cheekbone where you want to contour, then does a fantastic job blending it out for a natural finish. The short brush head makes it easy to control, and this would definitely work for blush as well.
The final cheek brush I’ve been using is the Real Techniques Stippling Brush, which is a perfect option for cream blush. I’m used to blending out cream products with my fingers, but using this brush makes it so much easier (and more hygienic too). It would also work great with other cream products like foundation or bronzer, if you want to give a flawless finish. Definitely a brush I wouldn’t mind having multiples of!
Honestly, I have no complaints with the Real Techniques Blush Brush, Real Techniques Sculpting Brush or the Real Techniques Stippling Brush, they are all fantastic. However, I am most obsessed with the Sculpting Brush, and after using it my twin sister is even picking up her own, because it’s affordable and makes contouring so easy!
If you’d like to hear my opinion on other brushes from Real Techniques, you can check out my reviews of the Real Techniques Duo Fibre Collection, Real Techniques Your Base Core Collection or Real Techniques Your Eyes Starter Kit. I know there will be more installments to follow, because I just love these brushes! You can pick them up online at FarleyCo or in store at Walmart, London Drugs or Lawtons. Have you tried any Real Techniques brushes yet?
