Real Techniques – Stippling Brush

Real Techniques – Stippling Brush

Just a short post today reviewing my newly-purchased Stippling Brush from Real Techniques. I needed a good stippling brush to use for applying liquid and cream products – cream blusher, highlighter, etc – so I did lots of research and narrowed it down to either a Real Techniques brush or a Sigma brush. My favourite ever make-up brushes are Bobbi Brown, they are just so soft, but they’re fairly expensive and they don’t do a flat-ended stippling brush.

I particularly like the brush, it’s really long which allows you to coat lots of lashes at once and is covered in tiny plastic ‘bristles’ (it’s a similar brush to my favourite Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, but much longer). There are also bristles all over the end of the brush which allows you to hold the brush vertically and coat those hard-to-reach shorter lashes. I have been using They’re Real for about a week now. I have to say that the jet black mascara gives a really great finish on the lashes...
