Real Techniques Sculpting Brush
Bought from: an online shop
Here's another quick brush review of something I got from Real Techniques last year! One of the best brushes I own are from this brand and I'm glad that these pieces are inexpensive and are available both off and online. Just be careful though because there's always a copycat for every great thing. Despite being offered at a cheaper price on some other local sellers, opt to spend a little extra bucks for trusted retailers and official shops in leading e-commerce sites like Lazada, Zalora and Shopee. If you're budget is a little tight, wait for the sale season because prices drop like crazy.
Our sculpting brush features a flat, wide head specifically designed to help create defined contours.
Real Techniques Sculpting Brush is housed in a transparent plastic packaging--very typical for RT's both individual brushes or brush sets. Handle is sleek and in fuchsia pink in color and I like that it's bold so it's very easy to spot on. The bottom is made of a rubbery texture which my only concern is that it easily attracts dirt and dust that's hard to get rid of. The brands's name and type of brush is printed in white so you can read it clearly. I just don't like the fact that the letters can be easily rubbed off.
The brush is of standard size so it's easy to grip and move around the face. It's also lightweight so it's perfect for travels.
The bristles are synthetic and is very soft and they don't prick the skin at all. They are kinda dense but not too much so it easily disperse product onto the skin whether it's liquid or powder. It picks up a good amount too so re-dipping will be minimized. The problem with brushes with bristles that are densely packed together is felt during cleansing. Makeup residues are stocked in between and they can interfere to how you apply other products with it. I appreciate the fact that this sculpting brush is easy to clean with a brush shampoo.
I love this sculpting brush and the fact that Real Techniques always make sure their brushes stays in great shape even after several washing. I had washed mine several times but there's not much difference on the quality of the bristles. There are little to no fall outs so I'm pretty sure I'll keep it for a long, long time. It's very easy to work with and aside from being a contour brush, I like that I can also use it for blush! Definitely a must-have!
