Real Techniques Blush Brush


I know there are a million and one reviews about Real Techniques brushes, but I'm a bit late to the fan club after only buying my first Real Techniques brush - the powder brush - a few months ago in a blog sale. I had the blush brush on my Christmas list, but I fell victim to the buy one beauty product get another half price in Boots recently - whoops!

The Real Techniques blush brush is designed to "contour and define cheeks for flawlessly blended, high definition results". It has an aluminium handle with hand cut, 100% cruelty free synthetic taklon bristles. It costs £9.99.

The bristles are sooooo soft and feel lovely on the skin. It makes blusher really easy to apply and it does blend really well. As the brush is rounded rather than flat you can also choose to use just the tip of the brush for a thinner line - it would be good for contouring with bronzer for example.

I'm glad I bought this brush, I much prefer it to the Jane Iredale fan brush I used before. I can't wait to add some more Real Techniques brushes to my collection, fingers crossed that Santa brings me the Core Collection and Starter Set for eyes!

What's your favourite Real Techniques brush?

  7. Absolutely love this brush and I use it to apply my powder blush everyday! Real Techniques are honestly my favorite brushes, but if I had to pick, I'd say my favorite brushes would be the expert face brush and the whole starter set is fantastic!

  14. I've been a bit loathed to spend that much money on a blush brush up until now, however I recently bought it, and I must say I really like it. Its incredibly soft, and my colour disperses nicely. Great review lovely x
