Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Brushes Review!

I've been wanting to get Real Techniques brushes for a while now, especially when I saw that their stippling brush looks similar to Sigma F80 foundation brush (which is my Holy Grail among foundation brushes!). I also needed a good blush brush and since I prefer angled brushes, Real Techniques blush brush looked really interesting, so I wanted give it a try.

First of all the brushes are high quality made. I hate cheap brushes, I feel like if you are thinking about buying your first brush, you should think about good quality. Maybe it will cost you a little bit more money but trust me, it will be worth it and good brushes make a difference in your makeup. Real Techniques stippling brush cost $10 and blush brush is $9, so really not that much.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush

Like I mentioned before, Sigma F80 is my number one among foundation brushes. I only use F80, beautyblender or my fingers. Any other types of foundation brushes just don't work for me ( example Sigma F60). When I received this brush, I was a little surprise that it is actually much smaller than F80, but because of the size, I feel like it works even better than F80 especially around the nose area and under your eyes. The brush is dense, super soft and blending my foundation was just so easy! I think it is a fantastic brush and I'm very happy that I found my another favorite among foundation brushes, definitely a must have!

Real Techniques Blush Brush

 This blush brush is another great tool from Real Techniques. Because the bristles are different length, applying and blending product is literally fool proof. It is super soft and dense and I really can not say anything bad about it.

Because both brushes are made of synthetic bristles you can use it with powder as well cream products. Love it!

Summary: These brushes are great quality, super soft, very easy to work with and blend powder as well as cream shadows. I am so going to get more Real Techniques tools!

What are your favorite makeup brushes?
