product review: real techniques makeup brush

An update on what I use to apply my makeup! These brushes are fantastic. I've always purchased the cheapest brushes because I thought I was saving money and doing the right thing. Until now, when I've been missing out on another alternative to expensive makeup brushes! 

These real Techniques makeup brushes come in "core collections" or are sold individually. I purchased my own core collection at Ulta last week. Just a little insight into my purchase-I like to use products for a good week or two before I blog about them! I own the 'fan fave' collection that includes the following brushes: The detailer brush, the pointed foundation brush, the buffing brush, the contour brush. They retail for $17, and with my coupon from the app Retail Me Not, I received additional $3.50 off! Amazon has a great deal right now where they are on sale for $13!

PROS: easy to use, versatile, applies product generously, soft bristles, easy to clean, creates even layer of product, easy to hold and use, streak free, compact bristles, travels well. 

CONS: not as inexpensive as E.L.F brushes, brushes need to be washed often. 

Overall, these brushes don't have too many negative remarks in my opinion. They are seriously great for everyday use! I use the foundation brush for my liquid foundation (this Revlon foundation mixed with this Rimmel foundation is my latest everyday favorite), I use the buffing brush for my powder (I am loving this Maybelline powder), and I use the detailer for lipstick application.

  1. I definitely have my eye one these!! I bought some cheapies but they don't have much bristles we do not have them in South Africa so I guess Amazon would have to work..

  2. The stippling brush from real techniques is my FAVORITE! It's so soft and blends so well. I totally agree with your review!
