Still In Love.


2 years on and look at that beauty, still perfect. I use my Real Techniques buffing brush every day for literally everything base related. I blend concealer, apply liquid and powder foundations, blend out blusher and apply setting powder. Most days it is the only brush I use, I like a simple life. Who has time for eyeshadow, I mean really. 

Even after all this time with countless washes under a tap I've not had any unsightly shedding, the synthetic bristles are still as soft as a kitten and it looks as good as new.

If you don't own this brush you need it & if you do own this brush and don't use it every damn day... what's your problem?? ;)

  1. I didn't use the buffing brush for a good six months but now I'm well and truly back in love with it. I find it can soak up alot of product sometimes but I adore the the finish it gives any foundation so that's forgiven :)

    1. Hmm yes I find that too sometimes but as I mainly use powder foundation at the moment it's all good! x

  2. I dont really see the hype in this brush! I feel that it was really flimsy and didn't blend everything in! Shame because I love the RT line and the Stippling brush is my favourite in the world! x

  3. I couldn't agree with you more. Who needs another brush? What magic is in these than makes them last so long? And who really has time for eyeshadow?! x

  4. I used to have this brush but its only available in the Core collection (as far as I know, please let me know otherwise!) and my dog chewed it to pieces!!! I don't want to pay for the whole collection as I only want the buffing brush :'( sad times

    1. Aw nooo that is the worst! It's also available in the 'sams picks' (or something similar) collection which has a different selection of brushes? I don't think it will ever be sold on it's own as it's a money maker ;) x

  5. funny how everyone considers this 1 to be the best in applying foundation..don't get me wrong it is a fab brush but to me it can't beat the expert face brush..

  6. I,along with countless women, feel the exact same way. No other brush better at applying foundations flawlessly. I've compared my relationship with the Buffing Brush to Chuck and Blair's relationship in the past. It's literally meant to be, so why damn fight it? ;) It's going to be a losing battle.

  7. Sounds like a versatile brush, I can't believe I don't own this yet. I use my Stippling Brush to apply foundation & cream products but I think this buffing brush would be a great addition to my brushes

    1. You need it! it gives a much smoother finish compared to the stippling brush and the bristles have more give so it's softer and easier/quicker to blend! xx

  10. Real techniques brushes are heaven in earth! I literally use them everyday! Although I've never tried this one...might have to make a sneaky purchase. :)
