New in from Real Techniques

Real Techniques PowderBleu

Now I’m pretty sure that along with shoes and lipstick, women can’t have enough makeup brushes. Well I certainly can’t. My collection seems to be growing by the day. And I have to say that the majority of my brushes are from Real Techniques. Back when I first started blogging and watching YouTube videos, the Pixiwoo girls were some of my favourites. So when they first launched their range of Real Techniques brushes, I couldn’t resist picking some up. Now I think I have pretty much every brush they’ve ever bought one. I’ve even doubled up on some of my favourites!

So when I saw they launched a new range, I couldn’t wait to try them. And I’m definitely not disappointed. They’re very similar to the Bold Metals brushes from a few years back. The handles feel and look the same. But rather than the metal finish, these have luxurious blue tones to them. But the bristles do feel different. They’re so much softer. And they’ve been designed specifically for use with powder makeup.

I have to say I’ve fallen in love with these brushes. I love how soft they feel, how different they look, and how amazing they perform with powder makeup. Here’s what’s in the collection:

Real Techniques PowderBleu B01 Soft Powder Brush £22

Real Techniques PowderBleu B01 Soft Powder Brush

With the large tapered head, this Soft Powder Brush is perfect for a flawless application of powder bronzers and highlighters.

Real Techniques PowderBleu B02 Soft Finishing Brush £22

Although this brush is designed for gently sweeping a powder blush or highlight onto your cheeks. I have to say the extreme tapered head also makes for a fab contouring brush.

Real Techniques PowderBleu B03 Soft Complexion Brush £22

Real Techniques PowderBleu B03 Soft Complexion Brush

This is probably one of my favourite brushes from the whole range and the one I know I’ll use the most. The doomed, dense head is perfect for blending and buffing powder foundations onto your skin for a buildable finish.

Real Techniques PowderBleu B04 Soft Shadow Brush £15

Real Techniques PowderBleu B04 Soft Shadow Brush

Again, although this brush is designed to gently layer and blend your powder eyeshadows. I think the tapered precision head of this brush would make it perfect for blending in concealers, or adding highlighter to your brow bone or chin.

Real Techniques PowderBleu B05 Soft Kabuki Brush £25

Real Techniques PowderBleu B05 Soft Kabuki Brush
Now this Soft Kabuki Brush is a real luxe brush. It’s designed for buffing and blending your powder bronzers, highlighters. Or you can use it contour your face or décolletage for a complete look.

Real Techniques PowderBleu Plush Powder Puff £12

I love the vintage feel of this powder puff. I feel like you don’t see a lot of these anymore but this one is fab for tapping on the right amount of powder to set your makeup look.

You can find the complete range here.

    I don’t have a makeup kit yet, because I’m still too lazy to put on makeup, but it’s good to know which products are good for when I decide to have one.

    Real Technique brushes are fab – I use a mix of these and MAC ones.

  7. July 11, 2017 / 10:30 pm

    These look like beautiful brushes, I think maybe I should treat myself to a set.

  8. July 12, 2017 / 8:44 am

    Aha! A makeup I actually know! Although I’m not sure how… I think my wife used to use their stuff? Didn’t know there were new items coming out. Definitely going to let her know!

    These look so much more elegant than the standard real techniques collection. I’ve just bought myself a new set of brushes so I really need to have a clear out of some of my older ones x

  10. July 12, 2017 / 10:07 am

    The Real Techniques brushes are so good. I wasn’t aware of a new range though, may have to treat myself!

    I actually need some make up brushes as currently I only have one and I have to use my fingers.

  12. July 12, 2017 / 1:20 pm

    Oh my gosh! I want these so bad! I didn’t want the bold metal collection but this is definitely up my street.

  13. July 12, 2017 / 6:08 pm

    They are really nice make up brushes 🙂 I just stick to superdrug own ones usually!
