Real Techniques Stippling and Powder Brush Review

About The Product

From Real Techniques website
"Designed with pro makeup artist Samantha Chapman, Real Techniques brushes combine high-tech materials with innovative design to make creating a pixel-perfect look easier than ever:
  • Taklon bristles are ultra plush and smoother than the hair you'll find in other brushes. Since taklon is synthetic, it's 100% cruelty-free. The soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light – from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting.
  • The color-coded system corresponds to the key steps of makeup application so you can create a flawless base, enhanced eyes, and the perfect finish like a pro.
  • Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish.
  • The collection is suitable for a wide range of products and every makeup need – from powders, creams, and liquids to mineral makeup, highlighter, and shimmer.
  • Brush names on the handles make for easy reference when creating your favorite look."


Powder Brush is super soft. I just love running my fingers in the bristles its just so soft. From a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most softest I would rate the softness a 10! Even after I washed the brush it still kept it's softness and shape. No bristles came out when I first used it and none came out when washing the brush. I like the design of the brush and that it can stand.  I also like that this brush is very affordable, I think its a great brush to also have in your professional kit, if your a makeup artist.

The Stippling Brush is smooth but not soft as it's a firm brush. Unlike the powder brush I was disappointed when 3 bristles did come out when I first used it, but none came out when I was washing this brush and none have come out since using it. The brush also kept it's shape and smoothness after washing. Like the first brush this one also has a flat base which makes it stand and is also very affordable.

Overall I love both of these brushes I can't wait to buy more! I like that all of the Real Technique brushes are affordable and that there also good quality. I also like that Samantha Chapman makes her brushes with Taklon bristles which is synthetic and cruelty-free. I also love the design of the brushes and the colour code systems gold = flawless base, pink = flawless finish and purple = enhanced eyes. And I love the fact that Samantha Chapman has videos on how to use her brushes, which I don't think any other popular companies like Sigma or MAC even offer that.

Powder (Amazon US) $9.99
Stippling (Amazon US) $9.99
