Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Setting Brush

foto

This has become my go to under eye setting powder brush. It is gentle for this area yet very effective. It can be used for setting, blending and or baking. You can also use it for highlighting and sweeping fallout away but tbh I just use it for setting my under eye powders and pin pointing smaller areas to set like blemishes or dark spots and am perfectly happy with its performance. Not to mention for a fraction of the price compared to some higher end brushes. Newbies and pros: this one is totally worth having in your makeup brush arsenal!

Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

I mostly use sponge blenders for blending under eye concealer or highlight, occasionally with cushion foundation, the shape of this is horrible for these. There is no way to grip it and it doesn’t have the nice round bottom that regular beauty blenders do. It is also a very rough, hard texture. Get the eco tools sponge instead if you need a cheaper sponge, although that one is sadly becoming hard to find.

It did come in a two pack, and I gave the extra to my cat as a toy. He enjoys bouncing it around, so that is a positive.

Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques -Expert Air Cushion Sponge

Great sponge, but one serious problem: it somehow sheds every time I use it. I don't know if I got a dud or what, as I've never had a new sponge of any kind do this before, but it leaves a smattering of black sponge debris in its wake when I use it with my cushion compacts. And it's not like I'm being rough with it! I'm just gently tapping the sponge against my skin.

Which is a shame as I really really like the concept of this tool! It's given new life to the foundation compacts I had given up on because I found their sponges too awkward to hold. It gives you the same barely there coverage and airbrushed finish of the sponges that come with the compacts, but the handle makes it much easier to use/maneuver. I haven't tried it with other kinds of foundation, but I'm sure it'd be great with all cream and liquid foundations. I'd rate this item as a 5 if it weren't for the fallout issue, but a sponge slowly falling apart from the get go is not an issue I can overlook.

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Miracle Sculpting Sponge

This is so much better than the RT miracle sponge. It looks small but when wet it expands to an advantages size for applying foundation. The sculpting sponge is softer and less porous than the orange sponge which always felt heavy as though there was still water inside. it's also easier to hold, (I use the small end like a handle for foundation and flip it around for concealer. While the miracle sponge felt awkward this sponge lays down product really well and gets around the curves of my face with ease.

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Stippling Brush

I have never had luck with stippling brushes and this is not exception. The bristles on this clump together which result in a streaky application of liquid products. I tried it with cream blushes but no. I also think this is one of the least comfortable RT brushes to hold. The weight is heavy at the end and it feels clumsy. Honestly I've grown tired of their candle stick handles as well.
