Real Techniques Stippling Brush | Review

Monday, 18 March 2013





Hello Lovelies!

As I mentioned in my Beauty Haul post here, I picked up this brush to use with my new cream blush. I wanted something that would help to blend the product in and create a flawless, smooth finish. Well look no further than the Real Techniques Stippling Brush!

I already owned the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, which I absolutely love & I use it everytime I apply my base, whether it be tinted moisturiser or foundation. As soon as I knew I wanted a brush for cream blusher, I didn't hesitate in knowing I wanted a Real Techniques Brush.
I'd read reviews online about the brushes, and researched which would be the best to use with cream blush.
After reading up on the Stippling Brush, described on the Real Techniques website as "Dual-Fiber brush is the trade secret for creating air-brushed, high definition results with all types of make up:
  • Look pixel perfect even in harsh light.
  • ultra plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand cut and 100% cruelty free.
  • Self standing for easy storage.
  • Extended aluminium handle is light and easy to use.
I knew it sounded like the perfect brush.

As soon as I found the right cream blush, I headed straight over to Boots to pick this up. As soon as I got it home, after photographing it of course ;), I took it out of it's packaging and stroked the bristles. Yes that may sound strange, but i'm sure everyone who owns one of these brushes, knows how damn soft the bristles are!! I could just sit and stroke them all day. It also helps that the brushes are so damn pretty!

Just a dab of this in my blusher, picks up just the right amount of product to create a flawless, dewy blush. I was so worried that I would end up with doll like, big blob of pink in the centre of my cheeks.. I didn't need to worry about this at all, this brush is amazing at blending the product in! It is honestly the best £11.99 i've ever spent, so worth the money. Boots regularly have an offer on, were you "buy one and get another one half price".
I have my eyes on the blush, contour and powder brushes next! You can never own to many RT brushes ;)
