Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush Review

The year's just starting so that probably explains why my energy is still at full blast. I hope I don't get lazy as the days go by. LOL. Anyway, here's a quick review on a makeup brush I've got in early 2020 and which I happen to write about just now. Believe me, I don't know what's wrong with me for taking that year-long hiatus but what's important is that I'm back! I hope I don't change my mind. Kidding aside, what we're going to talk about today is the Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush.

I bet all makeup junkies out there know that this brush exist but oh well, here goes my unpopular opinion. So I got this for PHP550 from a reputable U.S. makeup retailer online. I thought that it was already a good deal because I didn't have to pay more for tax and shipping. It was shipped right away and voila, I found myself liking it.

So it came in typical Real Techniques boxes and has this retractable technology. The handle is made of thin metal and is lightweight. It comes with an orange plastic cap "so you can retract, cover and go mobile." My only concern is that the cap tends to set loose after a while when on pouches. It's not that much of a big deal for the makeup brush itself is still functional with or without it. The brand and brush name is also printed on the handle. As most RT brushes, they rub off pretty quickly unless you are careful.

The brush itself is synthetic and is made of ultra-plush bristles as most, if not all, Real Techniques brushes. It has "two bristle types and lengths to easily buff and blend." This is a duo-fiber brush that is similar to regular stippling brushes except this comes with a bigger circumference and is evidently thicker as it's ideally a bronzer brush.

Compared to most bronzer brushes though, this is more compact so it would be a great travel brush too. The size is just right for me. I have small chubby face but it fits the hollows of my cheeks and temples well and it makes that perfect "3" shape as I bronze. You don't wanna overdo or spread the makeup on your hair and other places you don't need warmth, do you?

The size of the brush is also ideal for buffing in your foundation. The result would be a sheer-looking, natural finish. If not carefully blended, it could leave streaks too.

Overall, I really like Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush. So far, this has been my go-to travel bronzer brush. It feels sturdy in my hands and it never once sheds. Please note that I have this brush for almost a year now but I don't use it very often. I am working from home and I don't wear that much makeup now so I wouldn't say that it already stood the test of time. However, to this date, the brush still looks good to me. Since it's retractable and comes with a cap, it's able to keep dusts and dirt away and retain its shape despite multiple washes. Still a good price for a good brush indeed.
