Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Sunday, 14 April 2013




Hey Lovelies! Before I start reviewing this product I just want to say thank you to all the people who have followed me on GFC, Bloglovin and Twitter and have given me lots of lovely compliments about my blog, its always nice to know people like what you do so I've made sure to follow you all back! 

Okay, so back to makeup! I've been seeing loads of posts on some of my favourite blogs about the Real Techniques brushes so I wanted (needed!) to try one for myself. I never really use a brush to apply my foundation to the dismay of most of the girls who work on beauty counters, so after quite a few lectures on the benefits of using a foundation brush I decided this was the brush I should buy from Real Techniques. But which one?! Real Techniques do quite a few brushes which can be used to apply different foundations so this was quite daunting but after watching a few YouTube videos I decided that the 'expert face brush' would be best for me as I use liquid foundation. 

Real Techniques do include a foundation brush in their Core Collection make up brush set however I've heard that its quite small and better for doing more detailed areas rather than the whole face so I'm happy with my choice. The brush is so soft and easy to work with! The bristles are really soft and smooth which is great for my sensetive skin as some cheaper brushes just aren't comfortable to use. Also, the bristles are quite short and stubby (if you know what I mean?!) which means its really easy to apply the foundation and then buff it into your skin for a more airbrushed effect. 

The brush also allows me to apply my foundation slightly heavier and more even than I would achieve with my hands which means I get the best results from my foundation. It also has a really good handle, its not too heavy and not too light so its easy to work with, which is always a plus!

I dont think these brushes are that expensive either, I only paid £10 for this one from Amazon which is not bad for the quality of the brush! I think I want to try the blush brush next because I've heard thats great, which ones do you love?

  3. I love real techniques - I use the buffing brush as my foundation brush at the moment, but I often go between that and the expert face brush. I also recommend the multi task brush and the dome shadow brush for concealer!

  4. That looks like it's a really good quality brush. I love using a brush over using my fingers; it's better coverage and you don't need to use as much! great review! following!
