Real Techniques Powder and Blush Brushes

Is anyone else completely obsessed with realTechniques brushes?
 
I know I am...that is why I am labeling these two my HG brushes right now. I love them...they definitely are my favorite!
 
 
The realTechniques line by Samantha Chapman is both affordable and high quality. You can find them at Ulta, or online, and the blush brush runs $9 and the big powder blush runs $10. You can build a collection easily on a budget.
 
The handles are color coded per part of you face (foundation/blush/eyeshadow) and are thick and easy to grip.
 
 
 What I love about these brushes is that they are synthetic and cruelty-free but handle powders, creams, and liquids like much more expensive brushes. The powder brush is huge and dense and the blush brush is tapered so you can really enhance your cheekbones. I am loving it! Both are very big and can even stand up by themselves which comes in handy sometimes. 
 
 
Look! Its so fluffy!!!!
 
I have had these brushes for a few weeks now. They wash well and keep their shape and I haven't lost a hair yet. So far, REALLY impressed.
 
Do you have a favorite realTechniques brush I must pick up? Do tell!

  2. I'm loving the brushes I got in the core collection, and I heard my local kohls is FINLLY getting real techniques in stock which will be the death of my savings account!

    1. YES! Really? Well my Kohls and Ulta are literally next door to each other...but then I can easily compare prices!

  3. These brushes were one of the first ones I own when I got into make up! And I actually prefer a lot of them over some of my more expensive brushes I own too. I love the stippling brush for some foundations and the contour brush is great too!

  4. I just own the eyebrow/lash comb right now. The brushes I use most are EcoTools Flat Foundation, and I think the rest are the OLD Sigma brushes I have loved since forever!
