Real Techniques Expert Face Brush Review and Photos

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

By Contributor: Sushmita M

How many makeup brushes do you own? We are so crazy about makeup brushes this days that it doesn’t matter if we hardly use them daily but happily stock them away! It was a crazy Real Techniques phase last month on facebook when I saw reviews by every other beauty blogger and youtube guru and everyone was desperately ordering Real Techniques brushes online from different sites. But I have got no personal credit card so I wasn’t able to place any online international orders. Finally I saw an angle came and took pity on me. I got to know that a friend was ordering RT Brushes and I joined her. Here is my review on the RT Expert Face Brush by Samantha Chapman. She is one of the Pixiwoo sisters who are makeup artists and have their own Youtube Channel: Pixiwoo. The RT brushes are       by far the best brushes I’ve used!

Real Techniques Claims: Ultra firm and broad for application and blending of cream or liquid foundation. Look pixel-perfect even in harsh light, ultra-plush, synthetic bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free, self-standing for easy storage, extended aluminum handle is light

Where to order Real Techniques brushes online in India?

As I mentioned above, I was getting crazy seeing others ordering Real Technique brushes and considering the fact that I don’t have any single proper makeup brush made me so frustrated. Seeing the price of MAC and Sigma brushes I was feeling quite low. I got a chance and placed my order with my friend. We placed this order from which is a recommended website from Real Technique girls and mentioned on its official website too. But sadly iherb always attracts huge customs which means you need to pay shipping + custom charges to get them delivered to you. You can check out another website:

Texture:  The bristles are made of taklon synthetic bristle which feels very soft against the skin. Gives you pixel perfect finish in harsh lightening too. The brush is densely packed and gives smooth application even on rough surface. The size of the brush is not so large or not so small..I would say perfect to hold and apply. This Expert face Brush is designed to apply cream to Liquid foundations and blends like a dream. I saw pixiwoo girls Sam and Nick applying blushes and powders  as well with this brush in their tutorials, I am yet to try that. I guess that’s how it got its name – Expert Face Brush!

Usage: Execellent in applying and blending Cream to Liquid Foundations, cream and powder blushes and even face powders when you are in a rush. Love it!!

Packaging: The body is made of copper golden aluminum handle and has a velvet black base. The packaging is quite sleek and easy to hold. The base has flat back velvetty surface which helps the brush stand right upwards.


What I like about the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush:

  • The price , Rs.500–600 ( excluding shipping and customs)
  • The quality, soft bristles, Synthetic Bristles gives smooth application.
  • 100% Cruelty- free.
  • Perfect blending without any harsh lines.
  • Cleaning is easy and dries up faster.
  • Didn’t loose its shape, haven’t shed bristles yet.
  • Little product needed, hence no wastage!
  • Cheaper than Mac, Sigma, Yokohoma and other high end makeup brushes in markets.

What I don’t like about the RT Brushes:

  • Availability!

Price: Rs.1000 (9$ excluding shipping or 10 GBP)

VNA Rating: 5/5

Conclusion: Real Techniques Expert Face Brush is great and I am looovving it! This is my most priced possession. Definitely recommend everyone to try it out. I am looking forward to buy other Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman i.e the core collection, Eye Brush kit and powder brush.

  • Wow ! That's a cool brush ! But my obsession with MAC brushes is still on :( However I will definitely give this one a thought too for the price is much better/lesser compared to MAC !

    • Yeah Saraswathi. Thats y i love it so much. Price is really low than Mac one. :)

  • This is going to be my next purchase :) Have been eyeing them for a while now!

    Superb review :)

      • Hey Sush ...i didnt pay any customs ...there was shipping charges of 10$ I and my sis bought the brushes together to compensate the shipping charges...and i also had got some discount coupns which reduced my shipping charge to 5$
        try iherb they r good ,i got my brushes in a weeks time :)

  • The cheapest RT brush you can get ladies!!!! I got my Real Techniques brush sets from and used a discount code! You can use my discount code JGS688 (no expiration!) and get $10 off your entire purchase! They do ship worldwide for only $4 =)

  • For people outside US, you can get Real Techniques Brushes and ELF on iHerb for the U.S. price. Use code GFZ472 to get $5 off your first purchase of less than $40 and $10 off for purchases $40 and more (I get reward points if you use my code). The shipping charge is really low too ($12) and the package arrives within 3-5 days for international shipping and almost next day shipping for US. :)  Hope this helps some of you in getting these brushes. Please visit my blog for more online websites that ship to UAE.
