Real Techniques Brush Review

So, I bought these brushes last month as I couldn't resist the 3 for 2 offer when I spotted them in Superdrug and as I already own the Real Techniques blush and powder brushes I was pretty sure I needed some more. My sister has a pretty big collection and on the occasions I have borrowed her's I've really loved the concealer brush so I picked that up as well as the foundation brush and the expert face brush.

Expert Face Brush

The expert face brush is a really dense dome shaped brush which I have been using for applying contour. Before this I was using a small blush brush (I couldn't even tell you where it was from) and the size meant you could apply the product really precisely. Whereas the density and bigger surface area of the expert face brush means there is less precision so I'm still getting used to the change. However, I really like the quality of the brush and the fact that it creates a prominent line of contour straight away that can then be blended out with a big powder brush.

Concealer Brush

I love, love, love this concealer brush. The angle is so helpful when concealing under your eyes and the bristles are really soft which is obviously important when you are applying a product to a sensitive area like your eyes. Before this I was using a flat concealer brush which I liked at first but it needed washing every few days as the product build up meant it started creating streaks instead of actually buffing and this made my concealer crease throughout the day. In comparison the Real Techniques concealer brush is light and fluffy - the dream!

Foundation Brush

Lastly the Real Techniques foundation brush which is very similar to the concealer brush as it has the same shape and qualities but it's a little bigger in size. This is great for applying a layer of foundation without it looking thick and cakey which some denser foundation brushes do. I've sworn by the elf powder brush to apply foundation with for years but elf has since ceased therefore it has sadly been discontinued so I've been on the hunt for a brush that will rival it and this is the closest I've found so far. I find the thin bristles and flexibility allow you to create a really thin layer of foundation that can be built up with more product when you fancy a heavier coverage but from day to day it means you can use less product and your foundation will last you longer!

The next Real Techniques brushes on my list are the bold collections eye brushes - if not anything else they are gorgeous to look at! Let me know below if you have any and which I should go for first.

P.S. Apologies that my images look a little blurry in this post - I took them on the same camera and setting as I always do but I'm not sure what has happened!
