Real Techniques 'NEW' Retractable Bronzer Brush | Review

Hey girlie's!!!

Today I'm back with another exciting review for you all featuring one of my most favourite brush brands Real Techniques. As you may know Real Techniques brushes are designed by the lovely Samantha Chapman from Pixiwoo and recently Real Techniques welcomed Sam's sister Nic Chapman to their fabulous makeup brush line. To begin their collaboration together, Nic and Sam have released four brand new innovative brushes which include a Retractable Kabuki Brush £11.95, a Retractable Lip Brush £6.95, a Silicone Liner Brush £5.95 (review here) and the Retractable Bronzer Brush* which I'll be reviewing for you all today.

The Retractable Bronzing Brush contains 2 different synthetic fibres within the bristles making it a 'duo-fibre' brush, essentially what happens when you use this brush is that the white bristles pick up the product whilst the black bristles make light work of all the blending, this helps to create soft layers and gives you that gorgeous natural bronzed glow, sounds amazing right? You aren't just restricted with using this brush for bronzing though, like with most of the Real Techniques Brushes you can use them in a multitude of ways, the bronzing brush can also be used to apply powder foundation and loose/pressed finishing powders.

Sam and Nic have also added a new feature to 3 of their new brushes, which has never been seen before in the Real Techniques Collection and that is... the brushes are retractable! woohoo!! This means no more damaged bristles from just throwing your brush in your handbag/makeup bag for touch ups when your on the go, what a brilliant idea!

As always with Real Techniques brushes, the Retractable Bronzer Brush has 100% cruelty free hand cut synthetic taklon bristles. I must admit I do usually find Real Techniques brushes to be very lightweight, however this brush is much more weighty than the rest, I put this down to the retractable element of the brush and the fact this is quite a large brush so it contains alot of bristles. 

Overall, I'm super impressed with Real Techniques retractable addition, its such a fantastic idea for anyone that needs to touch up their base makeup on the go, for instance if your quite oily/shiny and need to lightly powder throughout the day, this brush will be fantastic and just what you need. I honestly don't think Real Techniques will ever bring out a brush I dislike, so far their whole collection get a huge thumbs up from me.

You can buy your very own Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush for £12.95 from cloud10beauty.com along with the rest of the Real Techniques Range.

Have you tried any of the new Real Techniques Brushes??? What did you think??? I'd love to know.

  1. Hi Hayley,
    I got a few brushes for Christmas; the core collection, the starter kit, the expert face brush and the shader brush and they're the best brushes I've ever bought and will definitely have to invest in more x

  2. The retractable range haven't really called out to me yet, and I don't know why because I travel a lot and they'd be really useful! I think I'm worried about the cleaning and if the water gets all inside it. How have you found the cleaning? x x

    1. Ohh they are great fro traveling hun :) Ive found cleaning to be fine aslong as i keep the bristles facing downwards so no water runs down into the brush :) xoxo

  8. I knew they had created the kabuki brush, lip brush and the silicone liner brush but I was completely oblivious to this one. I need to check it out as a good bronzer brush is exactly what I'm missing.
