Real Techniques Powder Brush
I think it's safe to say that I am a huge fan of Real Techniques, and are yet to come across a brush that I haven't liked. To apply powder products I usually use my trusty Sigma powder brush, however I figured I'd give this a try after loving the fluffiness of the blush brush and just wanting to add another brush to my collection. It's safe to say after using this I have fallen head over heels in love with this brush.
Having oily skin popping powder onto my T-Zone is an important step of my makeup application, which is another reason for the need for a second powder brush. I have always been a fan of bigger powder brushes and that is what tempted me to this, while I thought my Sigma powder brush had a big head I have found the Real Techniques one is actually slightly bigger and more dense meaning that application I find is a lot easier.
The biggest positive of this brush for me is the tapered shape of the brush, not only do I like the size of the brush but I adore its circular head, it makes applying powder really easy especially if you like to pop powder on to certain areas of your skin, like your t-zone.
The synthetic taklon hair on this brush makes it extremely soft and fluffy to touch, which is always a great bonus. The bristles are packed tightly making the brush slightly denser, helping to ensure that you pick up just the right amount of product allowing powdered products to apply on the skin with ease. You may find that you have to put slightly more pressure on to the brush if you like a bit more powder on the skin, but this is something I have never had trouble with.
Whilst I'm on the subject of the brushes bristles, I find that this has never once shedded whilst applying powder, something that happens quite regularly now with my Sigma. So you don't have to worry about applying product and then having to go and remove those pesky little hairs that are attached to your face.
This brush is fantastic value for money retailing at £12.99, and for me is a must have for your brush collection, whether you are just starting to build your collection or adding to a much loved range of brushes; either way you won't be disappointed with the Real Techniques Powder Brush.
