Say Hello to my new real techniques makeup brushes! Finally getting around to writing about them, probably one of the very last bloggers to be reviewing these! I bought my brushes off iHerb after resisting it for a while because the site looked kinda dodgy but then I realised a bunch of other bloggers bought it off this site so it was pretty reliable!
I purchased the core collection $17.99 and blush brush $8.99, used the $5 coupon so shipping was practically free! Saw these babies at Priceline yesterday for $44.99 & $22.99, still don't comprehend the huge price differences in Australia.
Blush Brush is mega soft. This brush is probably the cutest brush I own, comes in metallic pink handle and has a rubber end which helps it stand on its own. The bristles are longer on the inside and shorter for the outter bristles. The brush glides across cheeks quite easily and distributes the blush evenly. Definitely an awesome brush!
The Core Collection comes with 4 brushes - Detailer Brush, Pointed Foundation Brush, Buffing Brush & Contour Brush. It also comes with this nifty case to carry the brushes in (forgot to take a photo of it).
Buffing Brush is quite round and the bristles have quite a bit of room to breathe. When compared my Sigma F80, this is not as dense. This brush leaves your skin looking flawless without the streakiness. The thickness of the handle gives you the perfect grip.
Contour Brush is dome shaped and quite small in size. This brush is would be good for smaller surfaces such as browbone and nose. I haven't used this brush yet so not much to say about it.
Pointed Foundation Brush is about half the size of a normal foundation brush. I don't think this brush is suitable for applying foundation, it will take too much time and I 'm simply not a patient person. More suitable as a concealer brush in my opinion.
Detailed Brush is also very tiny. The feel of the brush is a little harder than the others, great for when you need precision in hard to get areas. The brush is good for putting on concealer around the eye area or getting around sides of the nose. I would prefer a larger brush as it takes less time.
Overall I'm quite happy with these brushes and for the price that they are selling for, it is value for money! A big thumbs up from me!
Have you tried Real Technique brushes? If so, which ones?
