REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur Brush Review



Today I have a review of the new Real Techniques Blend + Blur brushes for you! These immediately remind me on the (also new) Artis Makeup BrushCraft Collection (the more affordable line by Artis) with their matte/satin black handles and the curved design. And how do they perform?




The REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur All Over Brush ($19.99) is gigantic! And sooo soft! I love to use this brush with bronzer, because I apply bronzer usually very liberally, all over my face. This brush could be also used for powder, blush or even foundation. 

I find that you have to use a brush with this kind of shape a little different: you just "sweep" the product on- you don´t have to blend a lot. One swipe is enough. Fast. And did I mention how soft it is? I can only highly recommend this brush!

The REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur All Over Brush is HUUUUUGE!



The REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur Contour Brush ($16.99) is also amazingly soft! I use this to apply my foundation- don´t feel obligated to use it for contouring! I don´t contour often and find this is the perfect size to use with foundation. 

You could easily use it also for applying blush or highlighter- feel free to convert the brush into whatever you want. And yes: I absolutely love this densely packed, but super soft makeup brush!

The REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur Contour Brush is super soft!



The REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur Crease Brush ($12.99) is not my favorite. No. I find it difficult very difficult to apply eyeshadow with it. It swipes awkwardly, skipping skin and I find it impossible to blend my eyeshadow. I don´t like it. Nuff said!  :-( 

My favorite crease brush is (and probably will always be) the: IT BRUSHES FOR ULTA Airbrush Blending Crease Brush #105! BEST CREASE BRUSH EVER!!! 

The REAL TECHNIQUES Blend + Blur Crease Brush just isn´t working for me!



Overall verdict:

Give it up to REAL TECHNIQUES for creating amazing makeup brushes that are so super soft and save you time and product, but for a fraction of the costs of other high end makeup brushes! I absolutely love this new curved design! 

Get them at Ulta!
