I already have a few brushes from Real Techniques. I must admit that I love this brand and I am always curious about their new launches. Recently they brought out the Brush Crush line that reminds me of either a unicorn horn or a fairy godmother’s wand.
The line happened to be very bright. Additionally, it has some new brushes that were never present.
I’m not fond of these girlish designs, I’m more fascinated by the new types of brushes. So, I picked up the 301 Foundation Brush.
Now let’s take a closer look at it:
The brush comes in a transparent plastic package with frills. It has some colorful parts and bright letters that epitomize the whole range. On the front there is information about the name of the brush, its number and the name of the line.
On the back we can see the in-depth details about the directions, maker and the links where you can see how to work with the brush.
The brush is fixed on a colorless material that is meant for keeping the bristles in their original form.
Moreover, there is a paper layering with holographics that gives a nice effect to the packaging.
The brush itself has dual taklon bristles.
The short bristles are dyed pink-purple. They give volume and thickness to the brush. They are pretty soft and considerably tight. They don’t usually work with the foundation.
The long white bristles are more sturdy. They are tightly packed and ensure a thinner application of the foundation in a few strokes. Meanwhile they don’t leave any streaks or under-blended formula. The most important thing is to work in circular movements.
The ferrule of the brush is made of brass and it’s golden.
It has a number and a logo on it.
The plastic handle is covered in pink glistening particles, but the surface is pretty smooth. The center of gravity is shifted here, so it’s really nice to hold.
Everything is quality made here. The bristles don’t shed or fall out after cleansing.
You can easily use it as a gift, because it’s not only a bright makeup tool, but the packaging is also really fascinating.
In general, the brush is easy to work with. I love its size, soft bristles and the results it gives. However, the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Your Base/Flawless, Expert Face Brush still has my heart.
