”This is my favorite real techniques brushes along with the expert face brush, I use this to apply my bb cream which it does flawlessly and I also have another one which I use for blush. I love real techniques, I think their brushes are great quality and value for money and I find myself reaching for them even more than the expensive mac brushes I own (including the 116 for blush and 187 stippling brush) sadly I only discovered them after I had bought my mac brushes otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered. I would repurchase this over and over again.”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Stippling Brush
Experience exceptional brush quality and precision with Real Techniques! This makeup brush brand was founded by sisters Samantha and Nicola Chapman and launched in 2011. Both makeup artists with a passion for beauty, the Chapman siblings spent years creating YouTube makeup videos at a time when vlogging was still new. Their Pixiwoo channel gained a cult following through the years, eventually racking up millions of views. This got them thinking—why not create the perfect tools to help women achieve their perfect beauty looks? Thus, Real Techniques was born.
The only brush I bring for travelling! It makes a foundation naturally blended on skin, perfect for no-makeup makeup look, the look that I’m always opting for. Not only do I use it for base, I can also use it for cream blushes and highlight as it does not move the base under. For me, this is an all-around brush!4 months ago
This is the first individual RT brush that I bought since the other RT brushes I have are parts of sets. I was deciding between this and the Ecotools version but decided to go with this one because my very small brush holder is full and this has a flat end handle so it can stand on its own. Quality-wise, there is no question with RT brushes. They are soft and durable (although I've only had this for a week and have only washed it once). Function-wise though, I think this worked better on me as a buffing brush than for stippling since it didn't quite give my desired effect when I used it to apply my bb cream foundation. That's a pity because I already have a buffing brush also from RT and really wanted a brush to switch up with my beauty sponge.5 months ago
I like using this brush to apply my cream blush. It just makes my cheeks look naturally flushed! And I also use this for bb cream whenever I want sheer coverage. It's such a multipurpose brush that's why it's one of my favorites. And the quality my my my it's so good, DOESN'T SHED A BIT!!!6 months ago
This is my first brush and I was hesitant in buying because to be honest my fingers are fine in blending foundation and BB creams. It's very sturdy and I I love it! it gives you that fine finish without the messy finger part. Will buy another real technique brush!6 months ago
I had hesitations at first in purchasing this one because for me it’s kinda pricey, so when it was on sale I did not hesitate to purchase it right away! I love how this brush is super soft and when applying it with my liquid foundation it makes blending super easy! My foundation does not look streaky and I look super flawless. Truly a makeup tool must have!6 months ago
The Stippling Brush by Real Techniques is an affordable but good quality brush. I have used this a few times and I like the effect. However, no matter how much I read about this, I'm just really confused on how to use it properly. Real Techniques has provided some tutorials on how to use this brush. One video from Real Techniques instructs that you must literally stipple (light tap) the brush all over your face, while another video from Real Techniques features Sam Chapman, the creator of the brush herself, uses the brush by applying it in circular motion. Both video showed great results with different techniques.6 months ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
Same benefits, half the price.
