An Overview of Real Techniques Brushes
Friday, November 22, 2013
I recently expanded my collection of Real Techniques brushes thanks to a nifty Klout perk. I received a total of 8 brushes and since the kits don't match up with online sets, I'm sort of reviewing them brush by brush and as a whole.
I like the Buffing Brush quite a bit. It's a great multitasking brush; it can be used for buffing in foundation, applying bronzer, blush, contour, etc. Great work horse. The Contour Brush is also useful, great for either highlighting or contouring. The Pointed Foundation Brush became pretty round after a couple washes and virtually no different from any other flat type foundation brush other than being on the small side. I use it to brush on primer.
All the brushes are pretty soft, though not as soft as other synthetic brushes (such as Ecotools). They are well constructed, definitely on the cheaper side of the brush spectrum and made with synthetic materials. As I've said to many friends, I think you will be really pleased with them as long as you disregard the names of the brushes and use them for what feels right rather than the intended purpose. They're not my favorite brushes by a long shot but I am really glad to have them in a pinch when my favorite are dirty or drying from being washed.
