Real Techniques Powder Brush Review

Hello lovelies, it's time for my first review of 2014, and it's all about Real Techniques Powder Brush. 

From my previous post about what I got for Christmas you'll see I got Bare Minerals powder. I haven't used powder for a while so this is all exciting to me. 

Real Techniques were designed by make up artists Sam and Nic Chapman. I think its clever to have people that actually use brushes, designing them as it gives the product a more specialised feel.

The bristles are made from synthetic material so its 100% cruelty free. Another reason for using this material is that it supposedly creates a perfect and flawless finish. It feels so soft  and delicate against my skin. I automatically thought that as its made of synthetic material that it will be harsh and make my skin feel itchy, but it felt so light and smooth.

It might be a silly point, but I love how it stands up on its own. It makes me want to buy more brushes and create a brush a brush line of all Real Techniques brushes on my make up station.

I also thought the brush was quite big. I felt intimidated by its size (I read that over and realised how dirty that sounds) but thankfully the size works in its favour. When applying powder, only a little bit goes a long way as it spreads all over the brush. This is also helpful for when you have 5 minutes of make up time before work!!

I'm still a newbie when it comes to using powder, but I think this brush definitely helps with creating a perfect finish. 

What are your thoughts? I know alot of bloggers have reviewed this brush so link me cause I want to know what you guys think
