Real Techniques Stippling Brush

Real Techniques Stippling Brush £11.99 from

I gave into temptation a few days ago and bought the Real Techniques Stippling Brush from Boots. The Real Techniques brushes are the brain child of Samantha Chapman one half of the Pixiwoo youtube duo (check out their makeup tutorials). In addition to being a Youtube guru (with her sister Nic) Sam is a professional makeup artist with over 15 years experience.

The Stippling Brush is an all rounder and is designed to work well with a range of foundations and powders including liquid and cream formula's, it can also be used with highlighters. I loved how soft the bristles were and the fact that the brush has a flat base so can stand upright (very handy). I used the Stippling Brush with my YSL Touch Eclat foundation which is a liquid formula. I applied a small amount of foundation to the back of my hand and dipped the brush in it. I swirled the brush in a circular motion on my face to apply the product. I found that it had a buffing effect to my skin which gave that flawless finish. My pet hate with brushed is getting loose strands on your face, which seems to happens with cheaper brushes. This didn't happen with the Real Techniques brush at all, which is a real bonus for me.

I've washed it a few times and the brush has come up really well, I was especially surprised at how quickly it dried, there was no time wasting.

I already have quite a few Real Techniques brushes (maybe I'll do a post on them), they were my first jump from cheaper drug store versions. One thing I really like about the range is that it's colour coded. The Golden brushes are for bases products, Purple for eyes and Pink for finishing (e.g. setting or blush brushes). If you're anything like me and get confused with the different types of brushes around, the colour coding system helps to simplify things.

I really can't find fault with this brush - believe me I've tried. It's a great tool and a nice little addition to my makeup collection.

Do you have Real Technique Brushes if you which are your favourites?

  1. I've been looking for the perfect brush to apply my YSL Touche Eclat foundation with! Just bought this one and hope it gives me that HD effect, as even my MAC foundation brush leaves those brush marks. Thanks for the review!
