I have been wanting to do a review of some of the Real Techniques brushes, so here it is.
I own 6 Real Techniques brushes. 4 of them from the core collection, the powder brush and the stippling brush.
I didn’t bring the stippling brush as the brush head (the whole thing) literally fell off the first time I washed it. So very disappointed by this brush:
I really like the rest of the brushes though. These are the ones I’ve got:
The first one is the powder brush. Mind you, it IS a really big brush. So it’s actually not good for application, but I just like using a big powder brush. And I’ll just use a smaller brush for areas around my nose and eyes.
The next 4 are from the core collection with the buffing brush, contour brush, pointed foundation brush and detailer brush. My favourite is the contouring brush – beside contouring, it’s also very good for applying blush. It’s small and pointy – so perfect for the purpose.
The buffing brush is also very good, but I actually prefer my Sigma F82 brush for setting my foundation. And I haven’t really been using the pointed foundation, nor the detailer brush yet. They look a little roughly made, but I’m sure they’re really good, but I just haven’t come to use them yet. Here are these two closed up from the front and from the side:
All the brushes are very, very soft. I’m glad I got them, and I want to try out the expert face brush as I’ve heard a lot good things about it. Another very important factor – the price. They are very affordable! The core collection for example, is 18$ for 4 brushes. The face brushes, around 10$, and the smaller brushes around 6$.
Would I recommend them? Yes. Because of the price and the softness. I would recommend getting the core collection.
They divide their brushes into sets, base(yellow/bronze ones), eyes(purple) and finish (pink). The new line is white, which are their duo fiber brushes. Here are all their brushes:
