Real Techniques Stippling Brush


I remember the buzz over the Real Techniques brushes launching. I decided to finally get my hands on one, why just the one? Just in case I didn't like it of course & not to mention I have 3 different full sets of brushes so you can imagine I'm brush overhauled but who doesn't need more brushes! Knowing Samantha is all about cruelty-free it's a great thing her brushes are too, made of synthetic taklon bristles and hand cut, it's amazingly soft.


First time using this duo fibred brush with my liquid foundation, it felt like a tug of war, the short bristles are quite dense, once you get to grips with that, you can manage to get a finish I liked.
The handle has a nice grip to it. Thicker handle than most the brushes I own, it's nice that it gives control. Due to it being quite smaller than most stippling brushes it can get into curves and more of a controlled finish. I would use this as a multi-purpose brush.

On the first use, yes it did shed, meh a few odd hairs. For £11.99 can it be faulted no it can't it's great value for money. Quite interested in the rest of the range now.

  2. Actually love these brushes. Especially their detailer brush, its just so precise.

    Personally I hated the finish this brush gave me when used with my foundation but it works well with my cream and powder blushes

    1. I found I had to work so hard with it, but once I got the hang of that, I couldn't complain with my finished look but with liquid the bristles may just be too dense.

    2. yhhh I think thats probably it.

      It's too dense to work well with liquid foundations

    1. Yes, I found this can be a multi-purpose brush. Liquids may be too much for it though, glad you like brushes (:

    1. Oh no, boo! Yeah I want to try more out of this collection, as I've said liquids might not agree too much with how dense it is. So I would use this for other uses as well, such as highlighter, creams and bronzers etc. (: xo

    1. Who know's Sam may bring out a stippling brush better for liquids. I've tried it using other make-up, which does make it good to detail smaller areas than someone who is wanting a quicker foundation application xo

  8. I liked this brush but there was something funny about it which I couldn't put my finger one and then Annie suggested that it gives a shiny finish and that was it!

    Great for using on cream blush not so much foundation

    1. I must say I didn't notice a shiny finish, I must of buffed my face into oblivion lol, I liked my finish, but with it being quite dense, the bristles and liquid don't get on as much as a lighter product. xo
