The brush I’m going to be talking about today is the ‘Powder Brush’, the reason I wanted to do a rave about this brush is simply due to the fact that I’ve heard literally nothing about it within the blogging community, which I find really strange, I think people underestimate the power of a good power brush and people would rather talk about the Stippling Brush or Buffing Brush that can help you to achieve a flawless finish with your foundation. People forget that powder is an important part of your foundation routine, it’s what sets your makeup and keeps it lasting all day and therefore a good brush can really help you to achieve a really natural flawless face too. The reason I know that the Real Techniques powder brush hasn’t had a lot of loving in the blogging world is because I was watching some pixiwoo videos and was amazed by how big and fluffy this brush looked, I then looked for some reviews and to be honest there wasn’t ¼ as as many for this brush compared to the other brushes in the collection and I have no idea why, it’s definitely been neglected.

Real techniques powder brush
Hi my lovelies!
Today my post is going to be about something that is highly discussed within the blogging world, the Real Techniques brushes. Everyone and their neighbour knows about these brushes and unless you’ve been living on Mars for the last year I’m sure you’ve heard of them. Samantha Chapman, one half of Pixiwoo has created brushes. The thing with the fact that Samantha created this brushes is the fact that because she’s a makeup artist and because she’s created tutorials on you tube she knows what makes a good makeup brush and therefore she has all of the tools and knowledge to create some awesome brushes, and that’s what she did. I’m not going to go in to too much detail about the brush collection, simply due to the fact that everyone’s already heard all about them and the last thing I want to do is bore everyone.
Let me just start by saying that this brush is FANTASTIC, I have never in my life felt a smoother or softer brush, I am sat here now rubbing it on my face because it is literally so soft, it feels like an absolute dream, it’s just a beautiful brush. It’s big and fluffy, bigger and fluffier than any other powder brush, it is at least twice the size of every single other powder brush I have in my collection and it’s just great. This brush does everything I want it to do and more, I felt with my powder brushes previously that they either picked up way too much product making me look extremely cakey or too little product so that I had too keep swirling my brush in the powder for ages just for it to be absorbed by the brush. This brush is also made of synthetic hairs and therefore it is completely animal and cruelty free which is a massive plus for me and above all of that it is cheap (£12.99 for a brush of this quality is an absolute steal) and it’s just fantastic in every single way. I love it, I could literally rave about it all day, it washes easily, dries quickly and then also doesn’t shed and it’s like heaven for your face. Also the brush is fairly dense for a powder brush so I don’t have to work too hard with it, and it’s also perfect for bronzing your whole face (although too big for contour) and dusting highlighter and bronzer on to the cheek bones because of how big it was. I have no idea why the blogging world hasn’t given this brush the hype it deserves, after trying both this and the stippling brush from Real Techniques I would say that this one kicks the stippling brush up the ass and just made me want to buy the whole core collection of brushes.
