Real Techniques Blush Brush & Stippling Brush

Good evening ladies! Hope your all having a fantastic week. For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram (sunshinesprkle) you may have noticed me pop up a few images of my Boots Gift Card which came though the post, thanks to Aussie. Around September time, myself and two other Aussie Angels, Sarah and Lauren, put together a blog post for you all about the new Aussie Shine Range, and we won! So as a treat for being super, Aussie sent the girls and I a Boots voucher. Now I received this on the Friday, but Beauty Blogger instincts took over immediately and the voucher was simply burning a whole in my pocket, so much so that I got me down to Boots the next day to treat myself. 

One thing that has been on my forever growing wishlist has to be the Real Techniques Brushes, they have been raved about in the world of beauty blogging, and I can totally see why. Real Techniques have a fair bit of choice when it comes to brush selection, but the Blush Brush and the Stippling Brush were the ones I wanted to get my hands on the most. 

I've only been using these two brushes since last weekend, but personally I have already fallen in love with them and can completley get all the hype that surrounds the Real Techniques Brushes. The bristles on both the blush and stippling brush are ever so soft and make applying your makeup an absolute dream. 

I bought the stippling brush, mainly to use it to apply my liquid foundation as I was getting a little fed up of my standard foundation brush and really wanted a brush that would give my foundation a lovely finish once applied. The Reach Techniques Stippling Brush is amazing at giving you an airbrushed look, by simply allowing you to 'dot' and 'buff' the foundation into your skin. The end result looks incredible and I was wowed by the sheer fact that a brush can simply make your foundation look so much better. The stippling brush can also be used for blush and highlighting, which I've not tried and tested yet, but I'm sure it has the same great effect and is something I will be trying out very soon.

The Real Techniques Blush Brush is also wonderful to use, the bristles on this brush are so soft and feel lovely on your face. The brush also has a tapered end, which makes it perfect for contouring. One thing I noticed with the blush brush, is that it picks up enough product to apply your blush in one easy clean sweep and because the bristles are soft, I've found out that there is a lot less product fall out when swirling my brush around in the blush - meaning my blushers will last a lot longer! 

Not only are both these brushes brilliant, I adore the look of them - everything from the bright pink metallic finish, which is so girly (just how a makeup brush should look). I also love the fact that these brushes stand up on their own, with their flat bottoms! Nobody wants a makeup brush that's laying down and can get all manky. 

I can't reccomened these brushes enough beauties, and in my opinion are really affordable and do the job wonderfully. For those of you thinking about treating yourself or popping them onto your Christmas Wish List, the Stippling Brush retails at £11.99 and the Blush Brush from £10.99, both from Boots... And Boots where running their buy one get one half price across all the makeup and beauty items, so I got these for a bargain.

I'm looking to add more of the Real Techniques brushes to add to my collection and would love to know which ones I should get next, let me know! 

Lot's of Love
