Real Techniques launched in Boots at the start of February, and were an instant hit! They sold out in almost all stores and online within days of the launch, I felt so lucky to have gotten my hands on some before the shelves were cleared.
The feeling of the bristles is very soft and smooth, without feeling too synthetic at all, there is very little fall out at all and they're easy peasy to clean. Against the face they feel dreamy and almost relaxing!
Standing the brush is a feature users will either love or hate, I prefer the standing brush as it's handy if I haven't got my storage to hand and don't want to lay the bristles against anything. It takes a little getting used to but I think it's a very innovative and useful design, it helps the brush stay stable in your hand and gives easy grip too.
When applied to the face with the Real Techniques Blush Brush, I found my mineral and pressed blushes appeared near-flawless, I'd go so far to say they look better than when applied with a far more expensive MAC brush. Application is smooth, easy, and flawless, you can build colour well with the brush and contouring is a breeze. I don't know how I ever survived without this brush, I can see my old MAC and Sigma brushes collecting dust in the corner, and I don't even feel bad about it!
Real Techniques Blush Brush retails for £9.99 in larger Boots stores, Boots online and at the Real Techniques website.
