New in: Real Techniques Powder Brush and Blush Brush


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.

  10. Now I've started using Real Techniques brushes I can't see myself going back to anything else! I've been using the powder brush for a few months now and I just love it! I picked up the buffing brush yesterday and the blusher brush is next on my list. They're just amazing :)
