Ever since I bought the RT Core Collection I've been dying to get my hands on more of the brushes, but I couldn't justify why I would need them. For a long time I convinced myself that I'm only going to buy a new Real Techniques brush if and when I needed one.
For contouring, I used the Contour Brush from the Core Collection as I didn't know any better (the brush clearly states contour...) but the more I used it the more I didn't like it's purpose. The brush head on the Contour Brush is small, and to some that might be a great size, but I needed a brush that was bigger but something that still enabled me to contour properly.
And so I started watching a few girls on YouTube using the Blush Brush. Some were using it for it's purpose, and others weren't. One method was to use it for contouring, and the results that it gave were so incredible that I popped the RT Blush Brush onto my wish list pronto.
I'll admit that I didn't buy it straight away, and I was always taking a peak in Boots umm-ing and ahh-ing at the brush. I just didn't want to part with my money on a brush that I didn't really need. I mean, the Contour Brush was working fine, I just wanted bigger.
In the end I bought it, and I'm so glad that I did. It works wonders for applying contour powder (I use the Daniel Sandler Sculpt and Slim), but I can also see it being great for applying bronzer too. One sweep is all it takes to apply and the brush is great for blending product in too.
As with all Real Technique brushes, the bristles are really soft and don't scratch your skin. I'm really glad I bought this and I'm definitely not going to hesitate when purchasing more RT brushes!
