Real Techniques Brushes – Brand Review!

Good evening my lovelies!

Tonight I wanted to share my very first brand review with all of you!

Now this may come as a surprise seeing as I am such a huge makeup fanatic, but I’ve never really had any focus on the brushes I used until about a year ago. And once I actually started caring about the brushes I used, Real Techniques was the brand I was probably the most curious about.

First of all I absolutely love the design and colours of all their brushes! I am just naturally drawn to anything colourful and pretty so seeing these gorgeous brushes make my day every single morning.

Secondly I am so impressed with these brushes and what a difference they do to really give your makeup that little extra. They all feel very high quality and have a more compact and dense feel than a lot of other brushes I’ve tried.

My collection of Real Techniques Brushes isn’t huge but I wanted to share my thoughts on the brushes I do own and have used for some time.


Real Techniques Tapered Blush – This is me personified in a brush and it was the first ever brush I fell in love with from Real Techniques! First of all it is absolutely gorgeous and the feel of all the Bold Metal Collection brushes are really luxurious. It’s a very dense brush and I personally prefer using it for either blush or contour but I know some people who also use it for highlighting. It’s an amazing brush and definitely worth the high price!

Real Techniques Arched Powder – This is the only brush that I have found isn’t sold separately from the Bold Metals Collection. It is part of the Real Tecniques Holiday Essentials Kit  and I am so happy I made sure to get this kit because this brush is divine! I first used it as a contour brush but I find it way too big for it and not quite dense enough as I like my contour really noticeable. However it is perfect as a finishing brush because of how soft it is! Absolutely love this brush!

Real Techniques Oval Shadow – This is probably my least favourite of the brushes in the Holiday Essentials Kit, not because it’s bad but I just find it too big to use as an eyeshadow brush. I might sometime use it to apply a base shadow over my eyelid, but any precisio work is lost with this brush though. I really love to apply highlighter with it though and that is usually what I use it for.


Real Techniques Starter Set – This set includes every single brush you need to do your eye makeup and is truly called a starter set for a reason. It contains a base shadow brush and a crease brush, both are perfect for laying a nice blended base across your eyelid. An accent brush to either press your accent shadow onto your lid or highlight inner corner, really small and precise. A really fine tipped eyeliner brush that’s amazing to use with a gel liner. And last but not least you also get an angled brow brush that I absolutely love! These are my absolute favourite brushes to apply eyeshadow with and such a great investment regardless if you use eyeshadow every single day or just once in a while.


Real Techniques Expert Face Brush – This is the latest edition to my collection and has quickly become my everyday brush that I go to for contouring. I really like the dense feel of this brush and being able to really work in the product to get that blended result. Overall such an amazing brush and I can see how this is one of their best sellers!


That was it for tonight’s post my lovelies!

As a final note, keep on the lookout for a small announcement post later tonight. I just received a package with products that I am so so excited to share and review with all of you that I simply have to give you all a sneak peak of what’s to come!

As always thank you so so much for reading and for all your sweet words of encouragement! Hugs and kisses to you all!

    1. I haven’t tried that many of the face brushes from their regular collection but so far all the brushes I’ve tried from them have their own charm and I will definitely get more! 😁

      Thank you so much for reading! 💕
