Review: Real Techniques duo-fiber collection

Recently I went through my brush collection and threw out some brushes that were past their usage. It took me some time to find the right brushes to replace my old ones. I ended up picking up two real technique brush collections from Ulta the other day.


I decide to review this particular kit for you all because it is limited edition and I am excited to have a few duo-fiber brushes in my collection.


This kit can be found at Ulta for $19.99. I am not sure if there are any other places you can get this particular kit I haven’t had luck finding any other stores that carry it.


This kit contains the following brushes:

duo-fiber face brush: Which can be used for a lightweight application + blending of face powder or pigments.

duo-fiber contour brush: Which can be used for controlled contouring + sculpting.

duo-fiber eye brush: Which can be used to blend out eye shadow + adding finishing touches to the eyes.


These brushes are extremely soft and have not shed on me yet. These brushes are more geared towards using them to finish your makeup look. The face brush is great for blending out your blush or your powder to avoid sharp lines. Also if you wanted to use a light hand on a certain product these brushes would be perfect for that task. The contour brush is great to apply a light hand of bronzer or blush (Perfect for those highly pigmented blushes in your collection). The eye brush is great at blending out all of the eye shadows you have placed on your eyes. I have also used this brush to apply a light wash of my crease color (if I’m going for a softer look).


Overall I think they are great brushes to have in your collection. If you do the math these brushes come out to $6.67 each. You can’t beat the price for the quality that you are receiving in this kit. If you have something similar or you don’t see your self needing them I would skip them and check out the core collection that they have.

Do you own any real technique brushes?
Which one is your favorite?
