One shape, many ways

Many a time I have raved about multi-use products. And every time I find one, well, I rave about it.

It is no secret I am a big fan of Real Techniques makeup brushes and the amazing women behind it, Sam & Nic Chapman, so it is always a pleasure to try their new creations.

The new MultiTech line is very different from all the lot. First, all the brushes have the same shape, called Point, in different sizes, from XXXS to XXXL, plus a sponge.

What really sets them apart from the brushes we know is that they are not specific for one area of the face/body or type of product. Because they all have the same shape, you use them as you find fit, and all brushes can be used with powder, liquids, creams and gels.

Now, the design is sleek: monochrome with the brand in bright pink. The bristles are ever so soft, the brushes are packed with them and the shape really works in a multitude of ways. Plus, they are comfortable to grip.

For the ones I have, L and XXXL, powder seems to be the preferred medium. But don’t be fooled. Point L is amazing with foundation, with good buffing action.

The versatility of the shape really works: the L Point, a bit more tapered, will do well for highlighting and also blusher if angled.

I will stick with powder for XXXXL Point: one sweep covers a huge area. Great for a healthy sweep of bronzer. I see this being my hero for subtle body shimmer application in the summer, especially legs! It will fare really well with shimmer cream, and for those who use it, body foundation and cover ups.

The Real Techniques MultiTech small Points come is a pretty set of four in a metal holder (£29.99 for XXXS, XXS, XS and S, all can be used on face, eyes or lips) and L (£15.99), XL (£17.99) and XXXL (£17.99), as well as the sponge (£9.99), can be brought separately.

You can get all the information on the brushes from the Real Techniques website, where you can also find the amazeballs tutorials on these brushes, and many more, from the ladies behind the brushes!

You know the drill, but I’ll say anyway: this post contains PR samples. This review, however, is based on my experience with the product and reflects my honest opinion on them.

 

Review: Real Techniques Bold Metals makeup brushes

There was a lot of talk about the Real Techniques Bold Metals brushes. The main one was pricing, followed by their sheer prettiness. But how do they do the job?
