I love Real Techniques and if you’ve read my blog you know this is certainly not the only product of their I own. For those new to my blog, I reviewed the Miracle Complexion Sponge here. I had my eye on this Real Techniques powder brush for so long and it wasn’t until my final student loan payment for this year was paid in that I bit the bullet and went ahead and purchased it. I really wanted a large brush to apply my powder to finish my make-up and this was an obvious contender so I’ll be letting you all know exactly what I think of it so you know whether this RT brush is to make it in your collection too.
First Impressions: The Real Techniques powder brush itself is a really great size, larger than any of the brushes within the Core Collection which ticked the box straight away for me. The engraved ‘powder brush’ and RT logos make the brush look incredibly stunning and is a look I love for my brushes. The bristles themselves seem a little less soft than those in the Core Collection which was a little disappointing but the quality is still extremely high but I couldn’t help noticing the difference.
Using the Product: The Real Techniques powder brush is extremely easy to use and helps to achieve a really great finish with my powder. I only need a small amount of product and dap the brush lightly into it and stroke the brush down lightly onto my face. Stroking down is essential as if there are any hairs on your face this ensures they become invisible. Using this brush with powder means your make-up will last longer and depending on what type of powder you use, you control the finish of your face make-up which is essential for it looking as amazing as possible. I use the matte powder from MUA in Superdrug but going to be purchasing the Rimmel Stay Matte next so I’ll be reviewing that in due course. I wish the bristles on these brush were as soft as those in the Core Collection as this could create an even softer finish but that is me just being super picky. This is great to use no matter if you use a sponge to apply foundation or a brush, it helps to ensure the powder doesn’t cling to any dry patches and prevents shine throughout the day. I really love it and for £12.99 from Boots here it’s a great choice for anyone on a budget looking for professional results.
Would I Recommend? For sure, RT create such amazing products thanks to vloggers/bloggers Sam and Nic Chapman (the brains behind the brand) and I’ve certainly not looked back. They help my make-up look really natural plus blending and sculpting is so easy with a little practice. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an applicator great for creating a fantastic finish to your face then this may be “the one”. RT do a range of brushes for every make up need so I recommend you all have a gander at their website and see for yourself. I am currently loving the bold metals collection and would love to add those to my RT collection too, especially the contour one. Also, I’m loving the sculpture kit, they have released a ‘collectors edition’ and also have my eye on those. Again, watch this space, I’m sure I’ll eventually cave as they are my make up brush weakness.
