REVIEW: Real Techniques Stippling Brush

I've been a huge fan of pixiwoo on youtube for a long time now and when I found out that they had released a brush line, I was super excited! I have been playing with a couple of Real Techniques brushes for a while now and the Stippling Brush is one of the newest additions to my collection.



WHAT IT CLAIMS


This dual fibre brush is the trade secret for creating airbrushed, high definition results with all types of makeup: 

-Look pixel perfect even in harsh light 

-Ultra-plush, synthetic bristles are hand-cut and 100% percent cruelty-free 

-Self standing for easy storage 

-Extended aluminium handle is light and easy to use 




WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT


I have been dealing with problematic skin for a couple of months now and I really wanted my makeup to cover up any imperfections on my skin. I bought this brush because stippling brushes are generally known to give very medium to full coverage with foundations and I find that this brush is no different! 


This brush is perfect when you want a really flawless, medium to full coverage base. It works in and blends the product really nicely, giving excellent results! The bristles of this brush are super soft so you won't feel any exfoliation going on if you're particularly dry skinned. I love how this brush doesn't shed a single hair because even a lot of my MAC brushes are guilty of this crime. All Real Techniques brushes are multi-tasking and this one is no different. Although it's brilliant for foundation, it's also a treat to use with cream blushes and bronzers. 




Since this is a slightly smaller sized stippling brush, it does take a bit of time to blend your foundation. The bristles aren't very densely packed so you can't really use a circular motion when using this brush because it will leave streaks on your face. A stippling motion with this brush is the best way to go. 


At $10 USD, this is a great stippling brush! It has completely won over my heart. On days when I want to really work with my foundation, I use this brush otherwise, I use it with my cream blushes. Since Real Techniques isn't available in Pakistan, I bought mine from Makeup & Accessories
