In the last part of the REAL TECHNIQUES Brush Series, I am going to review the 'PINK' Brushes which are the brush for highlighting and contouring in general. I love the color of these handles (rather long ferrules) which are metallic fuchsia and they remind of the Urban Decay eyeshadows. Their bristles are soft taklon brushes that are hand cut and cruelty free (to animals and not humans). The brushes are sturdy, stand on their base and are just more than perfect (except the stippling brush).

These brushes are all sold separately except the 'Multi-task' brush which is a part of the Travel Essentials. Well I bought all of mine from the website and paid a hell lot of money to get them shipped here all thanks to the weird DHL couriers...but I dont regret for the face geniuses that I have invested in.

 So lets have a looksie at these brushes....

Blush Brush

This tulip flower shaped brush is the most amazing brush ever made. MAC has one but this one is simply amazing. It has many facets which makes it a very usable brush. Unfortunately I havent tried this brush with liquids so I would reserve my opinion on that. I mainly use this brush to :
  • Apply blush on the cheek bones.
  • Apply contouring powders on the contour areas of the face.
  • Applying powder highlighters on the key areas of highlighting.
  • Applying powder in the under eye area or mainly all across the face.

Multi-task brush

This brush is a part of the Travelling Essentials and is fantastic flat ideal face brush. It does a lot of amazing things including making the foundation blend and look seamlessly and more...I use it as follows: -
  • A finish brush. I swirl the brush across the face without any product on and this helps create a very polished and healthy finish.
  • To apply blushers and powders as usual with contouring and highlighting.
This is a great travelling brush as it does it all.

Setting Brush

By far this is one of the nicest Real Techniques brushes I have ever used. This is actually a multi-tasking brush. I used it to: -
  • Apply translucent powder in  the under eye area.
  • Apply cream or powder highlighters in the key areas of the face.
  • To soften the harsh lines in the crease of the eyes.
  • To contour the nose beautifully thanks to the tapered ends. I use it to apply Benefit Hoola Bronzer.
This brush can be compared to the Contour brush of the Real Techniques Starter kit. 

Stippling Brush

This is a duo fiber brush and is amazing for light applications of face products. I use it as follows :-
  • To apply moisturizer and primer all across the face.
  • To create a smooth canvas by applying light tinted moisturizers, BB Creams, light diffusing foundations, sheer to medium coverage foundations and a lot of stuff.
  • To apply cream and powder blushes effortlessly for a lived-in wind-swept look.
  • To stipple a full coverage foundation on the areas that need coverage.
This can be a bit rough on the face but I dont mind that and neither did any of my clients. One must remember not to use on dry flaky skins as this brush can be exfoliating.

The pink brushes are amazingly multitasking and fantastic to use.Do let me know if you have them or used them (in the comments).
