Hi my lovelies, I’m back today with a review for one of the brushes from my Sam Chapman’s Real Tech­niques Col­lec­tion:  The Blush Brush.

real techniques blush brush review


You can see from my photo that my bris­tles have been slightly stained (sad face). I couldn’t tell you which of my blushes or pig­ments caused this, or if any­one else’s Blush Brush has been stained like this, but I think if I attack it with my baby oil and baby sham­poo I might be able to lift the colour. Besides this unfor­tu­nate blem­ish, this is one of my favourite sta­ple brushes!

I’ve never had the spare cash to throw away on $70 indi­vid­ual brushes, but of all the brands I’ve tried, I’ve been pretty impressed with Sam Chapman’s col­lec­tion, espe­cially for the price. Each brush has a soft matte rubber-esque(?) mate­r­ial on the end, fash­ioned into a self-standing shape so you can rest it upright on your work­space. It’s a really com­fort­able grip com­pared to your usual wooden han­dle. They have long alu­minum fer­rules that are super light and colour-coded accord­ing to what the brush is gen­er­ally used for. As for the bris­tles them­selves, each brush is soft and vel­vety and lux­u­ri­ous on your skin!

The Blush Brush is def­i­nitely one of my favourite from the col­lec­tion. Slightly tulip-shaped and soft as a feather, this blends blush per­fectly and I also love it for kick­ing off any excess pow­der on my face as it’s not too dense or heavy. It’s not the best for hold­ing lots of prod­uct so it’s bet­ter for well-pigmented blushes and light dust­ings of fin­ish­ing pow­der. I also use this to blend out sloppily-applied con­tour­ing with­out rub­bing all the prod­uct right off my face.

I would def­i­nitely rec­om­mend this brush, I use it every­day in my makeup rou­tine and I am plan­ning to buy another when I next get on iherb for the lim­ited edi­tion Duo Fibre Col­lec­tion. It’s only $8.99 AUD on iherb.com and I would def­i­nitely rec­om­mend buy­ing it from there if you’re in Aus­tralia as it costs at least dou­ble at Price­line, the only store you can buy it from here!

Do you own any Real Tech­niques brushes, and do you love them as much as I do? Stay tuned for reviews on the rest of my collection!
