Review: Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Eeeeeee!! I LOVE this brush, like seriously it is just so smooth and seriously cuts down on make-up application time. I ordered this lil baby of cloud10beauty a few days ago and it arrived so quickly that I was delighted and couldn't wait to test it out. I was a bit worried at first because it seemed a bit smaller than I imagined, but once I swirled this silky smooth brush against my skin I knew I was on to a winner. 

This is the first Real Techniques brush I have bought, and I believe the hype. They are gorgeously made and fantastically priced brushes. This one retailed at €11.99. The way they are made means it can balance standing up which is very handy. 

The bristles are densely packed meaning it really can pick up a lot of product. I felt the best way too apply it was with a patting motion onto the skin. It literally took so much less brush work and blending than it usually takes. 

The brush promises to give you a high definition full coverage finish and it really does what it says on the tin. Most of all it lasted me all day! Delighted to say the least :) 

I even included a before and after pic for y'all;-) #NoMakeupSelfie

The Lowdown: 

I used my Smashbox photofinish primer then dabbed on some green colour corrector from dermalogica. 

The foundation I used was MAC Studio Fix Fluid mixed in with a Collection foundation to lighten it up a tad.

 Translucent powder from Catrice to follow, Iced caramel machiato blush by CATRICE, and MAC lipstick in 'Toying Around'. I also used a lip liner in Prince Cherry from CATRICE, it wasn't a match to the lipstick but it did the job.  Eyeshadows are a mixture from Inglot, mascara is CATRICE better than false lashes. You can tell that I love a certain budget beauty brand...haha! Rumour has it that their blushes are made in the same place as MAC ... ;-) 

You can purchase the expert face brush at or at where I hear even with postage from America it works out cheaper! thanks for the tip Pam ;)

Peace out xx
