Real Techniques Foundation Brush
I recently jumped on the Real Technique bandwagon and decided to invest in the Core Collection, and I can honestly it was the best £16.00 I've ever spent. I bought them from Amazon so they were a little cheaper than the usual price, which is always a bonus. I reviewed them here if anyone is interested in taking a peek too. Anyway, I the only point I'd make is that the foundation brush you receive in this collection is so tiny and I found that I really couldn't get a good finish with it.
I continued to use it anyway but I found it just took so long to apply my foundation because of the size of the brush, which to be honest I was a little disappointed in. I later saw that Real Techniques did a more suitable foundation brush on their website, so obviously I popped it on my Christmas list... and Santa was very good to me. This brush has an angled edge and is a lot bigger in size, which obviously makes applying foundation a lot quicker and easier.
It is really easy to build coverage with this brush too, and you really do get such a flawless look to your skin. Ever since I've started using Real Techniques brushes I haven't had one horrible steak of foundation, which is amazing in my opinion. I really like that the brush looks really sleek, and it is self standing too which is so handy to store it... but saying that I actually just tuck it into my Core Collection pouch. I've found that the other foundation brush is actually quite good for applying concealer, so I'm still getting use from it. Every cloud I guess.
I absolutely love these brushes and they continue to work for me every single time I use them. I'm already eyeing up some of the other sets and single brushes they have to offer, so there will more than likely be a lot more posts like this in the future.
