I have realized that I have a thing for makeup brushes. Although I do not use all of the brushes I own everytime, I still love to add more and more to my collection. Today I am reviewing one of the cutest brush from Real Techniques which is their Blush Brush. You can also read my review on Real Techniques Stippling Brush and Real Techniques Powder brush.

How to Use :
- Swipe the brush over the blush lightly.
- Swirl it on the apples of your cheeks.
The brush comes in a translucent plastic cover as all other RT brushes. It has soft synthetic bristles made of taklon hence it is 100% cruelity free. The handle of this brush is made of aluminium which is pink in color having the Brand’s name written at one side and name of the brush written on the other side. Brush name on the handle makes it easy to refer to the right brush while creating a look. It has a flat rubber bottom which acts as a base to keep the brush standing in the vertical position.
I want to start off with the best features of this brush and the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about it is its ultra soft bristles. Gosh! It feels like feather on skin. The brush head is thick, bouncy but not very dense which is why you really don’t have to put in a lot of effort for blending. I love how it’s tapered at the top – perfect for contouring the cheek bones and the jawline. It picks sufficient quantity of the product, so you can build up the product according to your preference without going overboard. I have a long face so for me the size isn’t an issue but it is quite big if compared to other blush brushes available. I always reach out for it when I wanna warm up my face slightly. I put the product on the very tip of the brush and the bristles around the tip helps with the blending. It diffuses the product seamlessly without leaving any harsh edges or whatsoever. This brush is fluffy enough to apply setting powder as well. Also, if you wanna sheer out the coverage of your foundation, give this brush a go and you will see how finely and evenly it spreads the foundation over your skin giving a light coverage.It had not shed even a single time and the shape is intact till now ( I have had this brush for over 6 months ). It dries withing 4-5 hours of washing.
Overall a very good brush to have. It works best with a blush, bronzer or setting powder. It has a reasonable price but you will find it a little pricey on India shopping websites.
