Review: Real Techniques Stippling Brush

Hands up if you love Pixiwoo!!! *hands immediately flailing* For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about Pixiwoo is the YouTube name for the beautiful Samantha and Nicola Chapman, who are also insane make-up artists. Both previously working for MAC Cosmetics, they started their own YouTube channel dedicated to educating us all about make-up. I've probably watched every single video and tutorial they have ever uploaded and when I heard that Samantha had released her own brand of brushes I was thrilled, then sad because I was totally broke, but when I saw the price the excitement came creeping back!

The brushes are available from Boots or on the Real Techniques website. The stippling brush is £11.99. I've heard mixed reviews about this brush, but I really like it. It's not as soft as I was expecting, meaning it's easier for me to apply foundation, best to put a primer on beforehand to give you a good base for applying your foundation. It's great of you want a light flawless look as I find sometimes if I use my fingers to apply foundation I often end up wearing too much. It buffs into my skin beautifully, I'm really impressed! It will take a little while for me to fully master using this brush, but I can see it producing a really flawless look.

Any make-up artists or make-up enthusiasts should definitely give these a go! Check out the Pixiwoo videos by following this link http://www.youtube.com/user/realtechniques/featured and http://www.youtube.com/user/pixiwoo

  2. Definitely put my hands up :) I have this brush, like you it wasn't as soft as I was expecting. I prefer the Buffing Brush for applying liquid foundation, but I like to use the stippling brush for blush.

    1. The more I use this one the more I'm loving it. I think it just takes a while to get the technique right.
