Real Techiques are probably the most popular makeup brush brand around thanks to the Pixiwoo sisters - and I already own a few brushes from their line that I use all the time. My favourites are the buffing brush ans the contour brush which are two brush staples for my makeup routine. Whilst browsing online I decided to purchase the powder brush from the Real Techniques range which retails for around £12.99 depending on where you purchase it - they are on offer quite regularly in boots!
It's much larger than I expected and is a really chunky, dense brush that is extremely soft and fluffy. It's quite possibly the softest face brush I've felt and it feels gorgeous on the skin. As far as being a powder brush, it does the job perfectly - it picks up just the right amount of product without needing to swirl around the pan 5 times. I find my powder seems to last forever when I use this brush as it doesn't get overloaded with product, even when I use quite a soft powder.
It's a bit of a pain to put in a makeup bag, or a handbag so it's not the kind of brush you'll be carrying around with you - but if you are looking for a good powder brush (can also double up as a bronzer brush too) then it's definitely worth checking out.
