Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Real Techniques are a brand that I've really grown to love. They're affordable, great quality and come in a really good range. When I lost my Buffing Brush on a drunken night out due to my stupid self combined with a clutch bag, I've been on search for a new one similar so I don't have to buy the Core Collection again.
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush: £9.99

Now this brush isn't the Buffing brush, personally I think it's a mix between the Stippling and the Buffing brush. It has dense bristles like the Buffing brush and is slightly larger than the Stippling brush. I do like applying my foundation with this brush but find it takes slightly longer to work my foundation into my skin. The Buffing brush is larger so I find that it's quicker to apply my base.

The brush is really cute and compact, great size for travelling and as good quality as the rest. This is really good for getting into little areas such as under the eyes, side of the nose and under the nose. For areas such as cheeks and forehead, it takes more work.

As much as I have enjoyed using this brush and it's great, I don't quite love it as much as the Buffing brush, which means I'll have to buy a new set and find a use for the duplicate brushes I'll have.

The Real Techniques brushes are available online or in Boots stores.

Have you tried Real Techniques?


  1. Real techniques on blogs make me drool everywhere, I really need some in my life. xx

  2. I really want to get some real techniques brushes but i always seem to put them back down in boots everytime when i think about the amount of brushes i have already!
