I have always been a huge fan of Real Techniques and love the collections they come out with. Powder Bleu is the latest to join the family and I am so excited about it! These are high end luxe makeup brushes created with synthetic fibres and they are designed to give a flawless finish.
Powder Bleu was in fact inspired by Blue squirrels (who even knew they existed!) I actually googled this and they are very cute! The Cobalt Blue colour is very unique and I don’t own anything like this. They are gorgeous to look at, so beautiful and they feel even better to use. I love how soft and gentle the bristles are. Given that the design was inspired by Blue squirrels, the bristles are also suppose to mimic their fur – so luxurious and 100% cruelty free.
There are 6 brushes in the collection and I have a total of 4 to share with you today.
- Soft Complexion Brush, £22
- Soft Powder Brush, £22
- Soft Finishing Brush, £22
- Soft Shadow Brush, £15
The handles have this amazing blue ombre effect running through them and they feel so sturdy. They have been made to be used with powder based products hence the name ‘Powder Bleu’ and as I say with any brush, these are multi purpose. I don’t restrict myself to using them just with powders though. I think you can get away (if used properly) with a few liquid products too.
I am really enjoying my 4 piece at the moment because I use a lot of powders daily. This collection is basically my dream set. If you’re all about that base with your makeup, then these are for you. My makeup applies and blends flawlessly and I really like the finish it leaves.
There are so many brushes on the market right now, but I always come back to my trusty Real Techniques brushes. This collection may not be the most affordable if you’re on a budget, but if you fancy a drugstore splurge, I would try these! Think Christmas or Birthday present – these would be perfect and I know this will be a popular sell out during the holiday season.
