I love Real Techniques brushes and I recently added two new ones to my collection.
There was a "buy one get one 1/2 price" offer in Boots, so I couldn't resist it :)
REAL TECHNIQUES POWDER BRUSH £12.99 link
I have a couple of powder brushes, but this one must be the softest one!
It picks up the perfect amount of powder and gives a nice buffed finish.
The quality is amazing. It didn't shed one bristle since I bought it and after 5 washes it still feels extremely soft and looks brand new. I didn't really need a new powder brush, but it was definitely a good investment. I use it every day.
REAL TECHNIQUES BLUSH BRUSH £9.99 link
This brush is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!
It is the best blush brush I have ever used. Just like the powder brush, it is very soft and fluffy and doesn't shed bristles. The domed shape is perfect for blush application.
If I use it with a very pigmented blusher, I apply it very gently and it picks up just enough product to add a bit of colour to my cheeks. For more subtle colours, I have to repeat the process and apply a couple of layers.
I absolutely love this brush and I can highly recommend it.
I also use it with bronzers and powder highlighters, making it a great multitasker.
