Brand: Real Techniques
For: Powder or Liquid highlighters & cream blushes
- Applying liquid highlighters
- Applying cream blushes
- Applying under eye concealers
4 /5 – Great! Can be kept on the table straight up with bristles facing upwards! Comes in the core collection set with a pouch which is not so great because the bristles still show on one side and the chances of catching bacteria and family are still high.
5/5 – Made with synthetic bristles which are soft and gentle on skin.
Ease of use:
5/5 – Name doesn’t really go with what it is good for. If you ask me based on its name I would give it 1 out of 5 but why I am giving it 5/5 is because of other better uses. Since the bristles are lesser in quantity and it is kind of flat it is not all that great to cover the whole face and that is the reason why applying foundation with such brushes has never been a success because they leave streaks behind. It is great for applying concealers evenly under the eyes and my High Beam by Benefit works great with this foundation brush. That thing just doesn’t show when I apply with anything else but with this brush it definitely shows on my skin and not just that it also works great with cream blushes and powder highlighters too. You can easily apply a powder highlighter with this brush on the high points of your face because it would just lay the highlighter flat on your face exactly how it should be instead of blending it into the skin which just makes the pores prominent and does nothing else. It is always suggested that you either apply highlighters with fingers or such flat brushes to add a layer on your face for that glow and never blend it in your skin.
3. Blending Power & Application
5/5 – Can’t say much about blending because it doesn’t really blend anything as such. It is basically a kind of applicator that applies bream blushes, powders and liquid highlighters evenly on the required areas of your skin.
4. Overall Rating:
4.9/5 – A lot of people would just not give it this generous rating based on the name it carries but I have reviewed it in a different way and it is actually great for the reasons I have mentioned.
Do I recommend it?
Yes, but for the purposes I have mentioned earlier and not all for applying foundations.
