Believe it or not, but I finally bought my first brushes by Real Techniques. They didn’t use to be easily available here in Austria, but for a couple weeks a big drugstore chain had them. They were limited, but the chain said on instagram they would bring the brushes back if they sold well.
I chose a set that had a face brush, a cheek brush and an eye brush so I could get a feel of the range. To my surprise the single brushes don’t really have any names or numbers to them? They are simply called duo fiber face brush, duo fiber contour brush and duo fiber eye brush. Okay.

Well, you probably already know this, but these brushes are so soft! Wheeee! The face brush is bigger than what I’d normally use, but it works out for me. I use it for all sorts of face powders, mattifying, finishing, what have you, and the brush works with them all.
The contour brush I gotta admit I use for regular brush and not so much for contouring. I tried, and it worked in creating a very loose contour (aka well blended and not too dark) but this has just the right shape for a blush brush to me, so that’s what I prefer to use it for. Works with powder and cream products.
The eye brush is really long and thin. At first I was scared, but it’s really good in the crease to create a defined crease. It can also be used for shaping or highlighting small areas of the face.
Overall, I get the hype now. If I didn’t have enough brushes I would have bought some more. Maybe later. 🙂
