Before purchasing these brushes, I read and watched several reviews on them. All positive. Plus, anyone that follows Sam Chapman on her YouTube channel, Pixiwoo, can see her using these brushes almost exclusively. When I received them in the mail, I fell in love. Just the way they felt in my hand, a feeling only a true brush junkie can relate!!! And the product application is exceptional. I will continue to buy these to use in my freelance makeup business and recommend them to anyone looking for the most perfect brushes ever... you can quote me on that!!!
I love my real techniques
They are so soft ! My favorite is the buffing brush to buff my foundation in and also the contour brush to highlight my upper cheeks. I first thought they would be too big, because my face is not that huge ! But turns out they are perfectly fine. I have no problem with the size, you just put on the brush the amount you want to, and it highlights perfectly the areas I want it to.
They are a must in my make up bag. I dont really care about their appearance, because for me it matters more what the brushes do than how they look. And that little bag thingy is practical for travelling, keeps the brushes safe. It's really affordable, and it does not shed (unlike sigma).. :-) I would recommend it if you dont have a big budget, and also if you are a beginner and you are looking for essential brushes in a good quality !
No Freakin' Way - Can this be true?
First off, shout out to Samantha you have done good for the beauty lovers out there who need and deserve good quality products at reasonable prices and not be ripped off or go broke paying for a name! I love these brushes, especially the foundation buffer brush, its soft, well built, does NOT shed at all, applies foundation like a $80 brush while not killing my precious and very small bank account!! <3 Thank you Sam for keepin it real and making a great product available to everyone. Go get them now beauties!! <3 hugs xx
I love this brushes. My best brush is the buffing brush. The brush I hardly use would be the foundation brush. Contour brush is awesome too. I don't regret buying it
Not only these are cruelty free but they work amazing with both liquid and powder formulas. The bristles are very soft but synthetic, the quality is just amazing! I never had trouble with application and these are super easy to clean. I use the Mac or Sephora brush cleanser between applications and olive oil + baby shampoo for a deep clean. I recommend cleaning the brushes often to preserve its quality.
These are just amazing. I love them all, especially the contour brush. I initially used it for bronzer but now I've realized it is perfect for cream blush.
I only use two of these brushes and I love them. I use the powder brush and the contour brush. I know that natural brushes are the way to go but, I have really sensitive skin and these brushes are really soft. They are really hard to clean though because the bristles are so plush.
Why all the positive reviews?
I sincerely do not understand the positive reviews for Real Technique Brushes. First off, I am not a big fan of synthetic brushes for application, I prefer natural bristle, or natural bristle/synthetic blends for application and strictly synthetic brushes for blending. Everyone has their preference, so I set mine aside and did an application with these brushes. I have one adjective that comes to mind when describing these brushes: Horrible.
What a waist of time and Taklon. When applying makeup with synthetic brushes, one must remember that it takes more time to build up a good application because synthetic brushes do not grab nor deposit color like a natural bristle brush would. There is also significantly more fallout with a synthetic brush and these brushes are no different than any other.
They have these ridiculously long and cheap aluminum ferrules that throw off any balance that a good brush should have for applying makeup. In my opinion, more consideration was given to the aesthetics of the brush, not the overall quality. What, if anything is good about these brushes? Not much. I like the standing case they come with, but that's about it.
In my opinion, no professional Makeup Artist would or should use these poorly constructed brushes. They are almost an insult to those of us in the industry that support other artists' brands. These may be good brushes for beginners/students, but even then, do yourself a favor and order a set from Crown Brush Company. Trust me, you'll thank me later.
I have an 16 year old daughter who is just starting to get into makeup, and she loves synthetic brushes. She saw me chuck these brushes into the trash and asked me if she could have the brushes: I flatly refused. I immediately ordered a Royal and Langnickel Silk Set for her, and that is all I have to say about that.
I purchased few Real Technique brushes, as I read positive reviews on them, but it is not as good as I expected it, If you are going to buy makeup brushes invest them on brushes like Japonesque brushes, Nars, Shu Uemura, Napeleon Perdis Brushes, Smashbox and Crown Brush Ask to a professional MUA before you buy makeup brushes, when I say pro's I mean real pro's like Liz Pugh who will give you their honest opinions, Those brushes are good for teens and beginners.
LOVE at first sweep.
I love these brushes so much. They are all so soft and work great on the skin. There isn't alot of shedding which is great cause ya know, don't want brush hairs on your face, These are worth every penny. You definitely get your money's worth. I totally recommend.
