Dupe: Real Techniques Brushes

Thursday, July 18, 2013 Holly 10 Comments


Hello guys, hope you're having a lovely week!
 Today I thought I'd share with you a recent find- dupes of the Real Techniques brushes that are available for two pounds! (I know right!)

I stumbled across these brushes whilst searching for 'makeup brushes' on Ebay. At first glance I thought it was just someone selling a Real Techniques brush at a good price, but on a closer look I realised that it was just a very good dupe. As you can see from the photos above, the design's are pretty much identical, there is very little difference apart from the fact that the Ebay brush remains unlabelled and is a shade lighter. 

Although excited by my Ebay find, I was slightly reluctant to buy the brush as it would be coming all the way from Hong Kong, I was worried they would get lost in the post or arrive a undefinable mess of synthetic hair and crushed handle! I ordered it anyway, for two pounds it was worth the try! It arrived earlier than I anticipated, about two weeks later, you can imagine my excitement when a little parcel addressed to Holly arrived through the post! (I always find ordering online is like buying a present 'to me, from me'!)

The seller has a selection of brushes, including ones comparable to the blush brush and expert face brush. I chose one similar to the buffing brush, as I have always been reluctant to buy the whole core collection in order to get just one brush I want. I'm not able to compare it directly to the real techniques buffing brush, but I have already used it a couple of times, and it works really well. It provides a lovely even application that needs little amount of effort. It's worth mentioning that the brush wasn't as dense as I imagined it to be, although maybe this is a good thing as an application won't be as harsh on your face.

I think these brushes are perfect if you're first starting getting into makeup and are unwilling to pay ten pounds just for a brush. They're also great to just throw in your bag for a night out or in the day, you won't have to worry so much about losing them!
If you're interested in taking a look at these brushes I have linked the seller here.

I hope you find this post helpful! I also would be really grateful if you could follow me too!
