Review | Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection

Brushes 2BrushesBrushes 1

Everyone loves a good old Real Techniques brush, and everyone loves new brushes. So the combination of the two were really exciting. This is a set of three brushes that you can get from superdrug. The set it normally £20.99, but sometimes you can pick it up on offer (I only paid £6.99 pre-staff discount for it).

After reading the descriptions on the back of the box I then found out how the three brushes work best in my makeup application;

Duo-Fiber Face Brush – This works brilliantly as a blush brush. Because it’s a duo-fiber brush it applies product really delicately, and as I’m not a big blush wearer, it applies just the right amount of blush onto the cheeks, and I feel like it’s really hard to go over the top with.

Duo-Fiber Contour Brush – After you’ve baked under your eyes with your beauty blender, this is a really nice brush to wipe it away with. Because it’s not too dense it brushes away the excess powder without interrupting the makeup underneath. It may take a bit longer than using a traditional powder brush, but the end result is so much better.

Duo-Fiber Eye Brush – I know this is a very specific job, but this brush works really well for applying highlight just under the brow bone. I like quite a subtle glow there (as opposed to on my cheeks, where I want it to blind the whole world). I find this brush applies just the right amount, while still allowing your to blend it into the crease colour for that fully blended look.

These brushes are lovely. Would I recommend them to a complete beginner? Probably not, because I feel like their uses are fairly limited and specific. However, would I recommend the brushes overall and rate their quality? Yes, they are great brushes, they’ve found a firm spot in my everyday brush collection and I cannot wait to keep using them?

I have a lot of brushes my real techniques, eco tools and B. Cosmetics, are there any other brushes you would recommend? Because, I feel like I need to try some more!

    1. haha! Yeah, I know. For a quick clean, try the B. Brush Cleanser, it’s a spray that you spray on your brush, you wipe it on some kitchen roll and then they’re clean and dry. It doesn’t like properly clean them, but it means you don’t have to properly clean them as often 🙂
