Real Techniques Powder Brush Review

Bristles: Just like the stippling brush the bristles on this brush are Taklon and there super soft. The bristles on this brush have just the right amount of density for using with powder products.

Shedding: I have noticed no shedding whats so ever with this brush

My thoughts: I love this brush, I am pretty sure I will love the whole Real Technique brush line. This brush just like the stippling brush is beautiful. Its light to hold and applies powders effortlessly. I love using this for bronzer and for setting my foundation with powder. It leaves your skin looking flawless and doesnt apply to heavy a layer of powder..

Do I recommend this brush? Yes I would recommend this brush its perfect for use with powders and gets the job done quick and easy. It is well worth the money.

Price: In Ireland in boots it is priced at €17.89 which may seem a little pricey but in my opinion its worth the money.

Where can I get it? I got mine in my local Boots store in Ireland. I think you can get them in almost every Boots store in Ireland and the UK now. You can also buy them online. I will leave links to where you can purchase them below. for people in Ireland/UK for people in the US

Real Techniques stippling brush review

 Real Techniques Stippling brush

What it claims to do:

On the box it says: My dual-fiber stippling brush is the trade secret for creating airbrushed, high definition results with all types of makeup. Looks pixel perfect in even harsh light. Ultra plush taklon bristles.

My thoughts:

My first impression of this brush when I opened it was how pretty it was and how light and sturdy it is. The taklon bristles were so soft and the bristles are dense. I love the way it can stand up on its own, it looks lovely standing up on my dressing table. When I first used this brush for the first time I really wanted to test it. So I used my Estee Lauder double wear foundation. This foundation is tough on brushes it sticks to the bristles and is so hard to wash out of my M.A.C 187. But with the Real Techniques stippling brush it applied like a dream it was quick and effortless. My only wish was that the brush was a little bigger for larger areas but other than that Ive no complaints. I am now in love with this brush and I don't know how I lived without it. Before this I used my M.A.C 187 but I hated using it for foundation as it sheds so bad, the Real Techniques hasn't shed on me yet but the M.A.C 187 sheds like crazy. I will a review on that brush if you want more information on it. But at for the Real techniques stippling brush I am in love and I recommend it to everyone.
