Review: Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush

Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush

The Promise: "This brush is the key for creating a natural finish by expertly blending bronzer or finishing powder".

The Price: £12.99 / $13.00

The Stockist: Boots /

The Review: Retractable makeup brushes are a godsend, however many on the market are lacking in quality. However, this is not the case with the Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush.

The brush itself is a duo fibre stippling brush that is completely synthetic - no animal cruelty here! However, don't be put off by the synthetic hairs - this brush is really dense, soft to the touch and creates a really smooth application. It is designed for use with both bronzer and face powder.

This brush provides an even, natural-looking finish. You can apply an adequate amount of powder without looking at all cakey, and a good amount of bronzer without looking like an Oompa-Loompa.

The retractable function of the brush is quick and easy to use. When you are finished with the brush, you just pull up the inner part of the tube and pop on the lid. The lid stays in place securely, protecting the brush from germs and dirt that may be lurking in your handbag.

 Real Techniques Retractable Brush

The Pro: The perfectly designed case keeps the brush as clean as possible. This is a huge (and essential) benefit considering this brush is used to create a flawless base! 

The Con: I can't find fault with this brush, I absolutely love it! However, if I had  to choose a con, it would be the brush's thick handle. It is not as comfortable to use as other (non retractable) brushes.
