A little while ago I bought the Real Techniques Foundation brush, but unfortunately after using it a few times the bristles started to fall out, which as we all know is a rare occurrence with these brushes.
After contacting them and sending them a photo, they promised to send me out another. I was so surprised when in the package there was not only a replacement brush but also a kabuki brush as an apology!
I was amazed at the service and customer care i received and would recommend these brushes to anyone.
I hadn’t seen the kabuki brush in store before, which is not surprising as apparently Boots don’t stock it, but you can get it from online sites such as Feel Unique and Escentual.
It’s really disappointing that Boots don’t sell them all as I like the see them in the flesh before purchasing.
I’m sure you can tell from the picture below how amazingly soft and fluffy this brush is!
I thought the blush brushes were super soft but this one is on another level!
You can see the tapered shape of the brush, and because of this shape I adore it for applying bronzer to the hollows of my cheek bones to help sculpt some shape into my face.
It picks up any product (my favourites being Benefit’s Dallas or Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer) really easily but doesn’t seem to overload on application to the face. Any uneven application is also easily buffed away with this brush and it is even great for application of setting powder to the entire face.
Let’s just appreciate how big and fluffy it is again:
Another feature of this brush is that it separates in half, and is held together by a magnet. I haven’t used it as a flat brush very much yet, but according to the accompanying video on YouTube (found here) it’s better for applying bronzer so I will have to give it a go!
The YouTube channel for Real Techniques is brilliant for tips to use their brushes so you should check it out.
Do you own the kabuki brush?
The magnet halves intrigue me, unfortunately mine doesn’t seem to be magnetic any more but it doesn’t seem to be a problem.
Real Techniques are a very popular brand and I can definitely see why, I’ve loved every brush I’ve ever bought from them and their customer service is fabulous!
Just have to decide what brush to buy next….
