Misc Beauty Tools -Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

i might have found my favourite beauty sponge. i love that its firm but not overly, very soft on the face and blends foundation and concealer amazingly well. takes away some product but not alot where it takes away a lot of the coverage, just enough that it isnt cakey and looks flawless. it really helps to give you a flawless but natural look. i love the colour although its a little bright lol. very easy to clean. i personally love the shape of it, it makes it very versatile. i like using the flat side for foundation, concealer and powder, the point is great for getting into hard to get spots. i got two of these for $9.99 so its really affordable. its fast and so easy to use, perfect if you have products that dry pretty quickly or goes on a little too thick. i use this with my l'oreal 24h fresh wear foundation and l'oreal full wear concealer. works really well if you have spots where foundation just rubs off with a brush, which my nose does because you dont rub it into the skin with a sponge, you bounce it.

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Buffing Brush

I've had this brush for at least four years, so perhaps my review is not very useful as I've seen that RT has updated quite a few of their core collections. The one I'm talking about is the orange brush with the black rubber handles at the bottom.

I personally think this is one of the best brushes RT has ever made and I would rank this higher than even the Expert Face brush for blending out foundation. The bristles are just incredibly soft and when I blend out cream and liquid makeup with this brush it results in a seamless finish. Because it's a synthetic brush I can apply my foundation perfectly many times before having to wash it, which is one of the cons of using natural hair brushes. Throughout the years I have never seen this brush shed a single hair, and thankfully, it hasn't become any rougher either!

I've always felt that if you had to combine the plushness of a Beauty Blender and a foundation brush together, you would get this brush. You can "bounce" this brush on the skin and it doesn't hurt. While I don't have sensitive reactions to makeup products my face can be somewhat sensitive to tactile touch; for example, if I keep patting the Expert Face brush on my cheeks for too long, it begins to feel scratchy to me even though its a synthetic. This brush doesn't give me that problem at all and so I do like to keep this brush in my arsenal for cream blush application.

Bottom line: I really love this. I can't vouch about the newest purple version but if you can snag the orange version you'll be in for a treat.

P.S. This one is just as soft as your average Hakuhodo. ;) And it's cruelty free, too!

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Powder Brush

It's a big powder brush. Actually, the size is too big for my face. I can set my cheeks and forehead perfectly but you can not reach every area of your face. I prefer to work precisely with powder, so I use this brush rarely. But it does its job so it deserves 4 lips.

Tools -Real Techniques -The PowderBleu Collection

on 12/20/2018 9:45:00 AM

I am surprised that no one really talks about this line. It is amazing!

Long story short, The PowderBleu Collection includes around 5-6 various brush designs. These are cruelty-free, synthetic brushes that are supposed to mimic the feel and softness of expensive natural blue squirrel brushes. They are also specifically designed for powder products. I bought a few of these and must say that they have impressed me quite a bit.

They have more of a luxurious feel to them, compared to the brand's original line. They do cost a bit more, but if you think about it, these are well manufactured brushes that are true multitaskers. I personally use their B02 brush for my powder/blush/highlighter. They are ultra soft, gentle and easy to clean.

I highly recommend this line and if you want to know more, then check out my original review here (https://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/11/29/New-Makeup-Tools-Hot-Vs-Not). Hope it helps!

Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques -Deep Cleansing Gel

Crap. Consistency of raw egg white means it’s hard to control what comes out and it never cleans liquid product from bristles and it’s even struggled with darker powder products too. Friend had same experience from same product from totally different store too. I usually use mild shampoo or mild nice hand soap and will be going back to that.
