Review | Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection

Yes, I bought more Real Techniques brushes. Did I need them? Probably not. This is one of the more recent collections and I'm sure they were limited edition but they are still available online. It's the Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection, I found them in Boots but there are also on the Real Techniques website. They might have been put into the permanent collection as they have been around for a while now.

Initially I wasn't going to buy them, I have quite the collection of make-up brushes so I wasn't sure what I was going to use them for. However I've been looking for a new powder brush as I want one to carry around with me in the day but I wanted it to apply quite a sheer layer of powder so it won't cake on too much product. The original Real Techniques Powder brush is quite dense so it packs on quite a lot of product so I didn't want to buy that one again. The duo-fiber face brush from this set suited me perfectly! It isn't a very dense brush so it doesn't pick up too much product, it's also so soft and it's now a handbag staple!

The contour brush is also really soft, in fact all three brushes are very soft, I've found the contour brush really good for applying high-lighter. It gives quite a subtle application so it's great for when I don't want to apply too much in the daytime. I have used it to apply contour a few times and it works well for that too! I love how versatile the brushes are. The eye brush is probably my least favourite, I thought it would be great for blending but it doesn't do as good a job as my No7 blending brush so I don't really use this one that much.

My favourite brush from the set is the Face brush and for £20 I think it's a really good set to have. It definitely isn't a necessity though, so if you already have quite a few brushes then I probably wouldn't buy it. I just love buying make-up brushes!! What do you think of the set? Worth it?



  1. This is a great post - I love brushes that allow subtly by not packing up lots of product!

  3. I'm still unsure as to whether this set is worth it, but the powder brush is being raved about all over blogs and I haven't seen anything else like it:) RT brushes are so good xx
