I know I know, more brushes! But what can I say, I was on a roll. I threw away one of my tatty ancient blush brushes the other day, so I was in the market for something new.
I wanted something big and fluffy, and you can't get bigger or fluffier than the Real Techniques Blush Brush: £9.99 from Boots. I also immediately fell in love with the Real Techniques Setting Brush: £7.99, so picked them both up! I already own the Stipping Brush and love that, so didn't think I'd be dissapointed.
The blush brush is huge! I've seen other bloggers say they thought it was too big for blush, and at first I thought so too, but it works perfectly! It works nicely when you're going for rosy healthy looking cheeks instead of a more sculpted look. Its so so soft and great quality.
The setting brush is designed for putting powder under the eyes or applying highlighter. I love it for applying highlighter, and its great for contouring too;because its quite fluffy you can really blend the contours out.
Another great thing about Real Techniques is the price; £9.99 and £7.99 are really decent prices for such high quality brushes! I'm so so happy with my brushes now, I never really used to care, but now I know if I have decent brushes, it makes a big difference to my make up.
FYI: I'm going on a short spending ban. I'm only allowed to buy from the upcoming MAC Marilyn Monroe collection, so that I can save some money and expand the kinds of thing I blog about! So expect lots more 'top 5' and favourites posts! :)
Bye for now! xx
