Real Techniques Haul | Round 2

I had purchased all 3 brush sets from Real Techniques last fall and quickly fell in love with the brand. Not only are their brushes amazingly soft and outstanding quality (they do not shed one bit!), but they are also super affordable - keep on reading to find out where to buy your own at an incredible price! You can read my first impressions on the 3 above mentioned brush sets which I hauled here. This time around, I decided to try 3 of Real Techniques' individual brushes: the Powder Brush, the Blush Brush, and the Stippling Brush. Once again, they do not disappoint!

I was contemplating getting a big fluffy Powder Brush for quite some time, so when I saw that RT had one in their line, I just had to get it! I use it with my Marcelle Loose Powder (which I reviewed here), and it truly works like a charm! It picks up just the right amount of product, and spreads it nice and evenly. This particular brush has quickly become my favorite!

The second brush I purchased is the RT Stippling Brush. I have not used it for foundation yet because I just love how the RT Buffing Brush applies it (which is part of their Core Collection), but I have tried it for blush and it also does a great job at applying just the right amount of product. Since the stippling brush is quite small, I see it working well around the nose and mouth area with either foundation or concealer, which are sometimes tricky to cover evenly with a bigger brush.

Finally, I got the RT Blush Brush. It is quite long and tapered, so it works wonders with very pigmented blushes that can be hard to blend. Because the brush is quite rounded at the top, it does a fabulous job at providing my cheeks with just the right intensity of blush. Quick tip: if you ever get carried away with your blush application, just blend out the edges with a powder brush... you will no longer have a visibly harsh line!

And there you have new beauty tools that I have been loving :)

Powder Brush: $9.99 | Stippling Brush $9.99 | Blush Brush $8.99
If you are interested in purchasing Real Techniques brushes, head on over to They have a flat international shipping rate of only $4, and their prices are in US dollars, so you are getting your money's worth since many websites charge much more when selling in an international currency. You can also use coupon code FFM227 at checkout, which will save you an extra $10 if you spend over $40, or $5 if you spend under $40.

Have you tried any of the Real Techniques brushes? If you haven't, you are definitely missing out ;)


  1. I have heard great things about this brand, I will definitely be looking into purchasing some brushes. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love all of these. RT makes such great brushes that I'm considering getting rid of the other face brushes I have. They seem to apply my face makeup so much better!

  3. They now carry RT brushes at Wal-Mart, so it makes it much easier to pick them up! Next time you're in the cosmetics department, check them out! :)

  4. I love RT brushes, i seem to be slowly collecting them all...

  5. They have sets now at Walmart but I wish they sold them individually as well, these look real nice.

  6. I've heard a lot about this brand. Thanks for the review!

    Do check out my blog if you have the time (:

  7. I love this brand, I am actually heading to Ulta this weekend to restock on some. If you have not checked out Pixiwoo's (The creator of RT brushes) YouTube videos you should!
    They do all kinds of tutorials using these brushes!
