Brushes; real technique dupes.

Hello my lovelies, 
I may not be a beauty blogger, but a few weeks ago now I ordered some make-up brushes. These are real technique dupes and were only £1.75 each, hello bargain and of course I had to tell you beauts about them! 

I've been looking for some good quality make-up brushes for some time now as they seem to be the best way to apply make-up or that's what I read in blog posts anyway, so I thought it was about time I purchased some. Back in march I brought some Real Technique brushes and as much as I love them, I also struggle to apply all of my make-up with them and I can't afford to buy more brushes for £10-£20...so for any students like me £1.75 is perfect, right? And which you can get, here.  
When they first arrived through the post I was so excited and a little nervous to start using them, I always feel like a newbie when it comes to beauty & make-up, so when I first used them I was worried I was using them for the wrong thing...oops? But I've actually had them a few weeks now, so I've had plenty of practice and I'm ready to give you a little review: 

♡ The flat head brush I use for my foundation, I find this to be the perfect brush for full coverage, as I can a even and full look once applied and I actually use a lot less foundation because of this. I find that my foundation even looks more natural because of using this brush, using a circling motion when applying probably helps me too!
♡ The more rounded brush I use for blusher and bronzer, which isn't always something I apply but it's still a very reliable brush and I can't wait to perfect my contouring so I can use this more! 

 I haven't really found any faults with these, they do the job that they were brought for and with my other brushes I've now got more options for the make-up I can apply.

Which brushes do you use? Do you recommend other brushes to try?

  1. I got the ELF brush set for Christmas and their my brushes I use at the moment. Before that I had Poundland ones! I haven't tried any RT brushes so I couldn't compare but I'm not fussy when it comes to all that kind of stuff. I use the brush and get on with my day!

  4. These look fab! I'm so glad you posted about them. I'm quite a fan of the RT brush range so it'll be great to compare them. Plus you really can't go wrong for £1.75! How long did postage take for you? X
