I love Sam! I watch her YouTube Videos and have learned a great deal from her. I use this brush to apply my Mineralized Skinfinish Natural Powder. I like the look and feel of the brush. This brush is amazing!
Luxurious-feeling fluffy powder brush
The Powder Brush is HUGE and extra fluffy. It works great to dust a light amount of finishing or setting powder all over the face. Its so big though, that I can't use it to dust away any fall-out that may have occurred while doing my eye makeup. It just won't fit under there!
All Real Techniques brushes are very easy to clean and dry quickly. None of the Real Techniques brushes I have have ever shed on me, nor are any of them stained from continued use of colored products.
I have 2 downsides to Real Techniques brushes:
1) If you use alcohol or an alcohol-based cleaner to spot-clean clean your synthetic brushes, be sure to keep it away from the rubbery/soft coating on the black handle- it will melt the coating off. It doesn't ruin the brush, but you will be left with a black, shiny plastic handle with sharpish edges (this happened to my Expert Face Brush).
2) The aluminum ferrule will dent relatively easily compared to steel ferrules of other brushes. Do NOT knock the brush on the side of your sink to shake the excess water out after you've washed any of your Real Techniques brushes- it will dent the crap out of it. Don't ask me how I know. ~sigh~
Overall Real Techniques brushes are high quality, ultra-soft brushes at a great price point. I would recommend them to anyone.
I have had the core brush kit for years and needed a bigger powder brush, so i bought this one! It's so soft just like the others in the Real Techniques collection. I have really sensitive skin and natural brushes irritate my skin, these brushes are so soft and they have never irritated my skin. I am totally a lifetime user of these brushes!
This is my favorite brush for applying bronzer/blush. It's really great because it's so big and fluffy that you don't see a distinct or harsh line where your blush starts and ends. It's almost like you don't even really have to blend with this brush, it just applies so well that it makes the makeup look as though it's part of your skin. Other brushes can be so coarse, I feel like they're irritating to my skin but this brush is amazingly soft! I really want to purchase more products from this line. It's inexpensive and very high quality.
This is possibly the softest brush I have ever found! The large head on this brush allows for such a smooth application of powder and buffing all over the face. I love it and tend to use it every day. So far, I have not found a Real Techniques brush that doesnt work for me!
I love this brush! Its affordable, its very soft, and i can evenly apply powders. Easy to handle and it picks up just enough product so your able to build up if you need to! I bought these brushes for my mom who loves them also! (A+) !!!!!!!
perfect, perfect brushes... should be in every mua's kit... especially the face brushes give the best most flawless finish ... great value for money .... so they are good for everyone , beginners, experienced muas...good job sam!!!
Real Techniques SUPERFAN
WOW...where do I even begin? Naturally, like most people, I purchased my 1st Real Techniques brushes because I am a huge fan of Pixiwoo and I wanted to support them. But...from the very 1st moment that I used these brushes I fell in LOVE! I'm a makeup artist, and so I have hundreds of brushes. I mainly use MAC brushes, but I honestly have fallen in love with these Real Techniques brushes and I bought the entire line. They do NOT seem like "drugstore" brushes to me. First off, they do not shed...ever! Plus, they are so incredibly soft, I LOVE to feel them on my skin. Also, they are synthetic, so I can use them with my cream products as well as powder products and they won't get ruined...and they wash up so easily it isn't even funny!! Sam Chapman did an amazing job on this brush line! I would truthfully pay double for some of the brushes in the collection because I use them so much and they are so invaluable to me, especially the face brushes! I would recommend these brushes to beginners as well as pros! A lot of other brush companies *ahem* Sigma should take note from these brushes! They have it all...and adorable design, excellent quality and amazing value for money!!
holy grail powder brush
the best I have come across so far. I got this for free because on Ulta for Real Technique brushes it was BOGO. Hell yeah right?? It goes for 9$ I believe and I would still have paid 9$ for this brush rather than going through eco tools and elf face brushes every so often (what a waste of money...)
I know this brush will last me a long time. It is ridiculously soft. I love how the end of the handle is flat so I can stand it up on my vanity at times to give me some room. I enjoy this brush so much. It's my favorite brush out of my entire collection honestly.
Best powder brush evere!!!
I defnitely love this brush! ^_^
When it came to me it looked smaller than I thought... but after a couple of application it got larger and it works so smooth! I'm using a pressed powder and the finish this brush gives is flawless! I put down my Elf all over brush as well... great price for great quality!
Go buy it people!
