Review | Real Techniques Limited Edition Duo-Fiber Collection

What Real Techniques say
“The duo fiber bristles of these three brushes pick up just the right amount of product to help you build your custom color!
This set contains:
  • duo-fiber face brush – perfect for lightweight application of your favorite products
  • duo-fiber contouring brush – create a sculpted look with precision
  • duo-fiber eye brush – create the perfect finish to your eyes
The duo fiber bristles work with any of your favorite products: powder, liquids, creams… These super soft brushes are made of 100% synthetic Taklon so you can be assured they are cruelty-free.”
Price
The Real Techniques Limited Edition Duo-Fiber Collection retails at £13.69 on the My Pretty Face Place website. You can also use the code Raspberryxo15 to get 15% off your entire purchase.
Packaging
The brushes come in a plastic box, encased in a sponge tray. The packaging seems to be sturdy and keeps the brushes safe and in shape. As for the actual brush packaging, each brush has a long white metal handle with a black rubberised end. I personally love the look of them as they’re not only sleek looking but the long handle just allows a better hold as aposed to if they were shorter.

Duo-Fiber Face Brush
The first brush in the set which also happens to be the largest is the Duo-Fiber Face Brush. This is absolutely perfect for applying powder products lightly such as blush, bronzer and your setting powder . I’ve loved using this with my Natural Collection Pressed Powder in Cool and my Living Nature Luminous Powder in Light as well as loose powders too. I’ve used this on days when I’ve just wanted a very subtle wash of colour or want my powder to be quite light and natural. For me, this is a staple when it comes to minimal make up days. It’s also decent for blending and like all the Real Techniques brushes, it’s super soft. My only real issue with this brush was that it shed when washed which was a little odd as the other two brushes didn’t but hey ho, overall it works fab.

Duo-Fiber Contour Brush
The second brush in the set is the Duo-Fiber Contour Brush which is effective for contouring and is also top notch when it comes to applying cream blush like my favourites, Topshop’s Prime Time and Illamasqua’s Seduce. Lately I’ve also been trying this brush out with my Veil Cover Cream. I love the extremely flawless look it achieves once all blended thoroughly but I find the brush can leave a few streak marks however, it’s nothing my fingers can’t sort out.

Duo-Fiber Eye Brush
Last but not least is the Duo-Fibre Eye Brush. This works fantastically for two things. The first is creating a gorgeous contoured crease and the second, blending under eye concealer effortlessly. It’s truly a wonderful brush as it just blends everything so so well making the overall make up look a lot cleaner and prettier.
Pros
  • Effective packaging
  • All brushes are super soft
  • Each brush is multi-purpose
  • Can be used with powder products or cream
  • 100% synthetic
  • Cruelty free
  • Reasonably priced
  • Duo-Fiber Face Brush is excellent for lightly applying powder products
  • Duo-Fiber Contour Brush is great for applying cream blush and foundation
  • Duo-Fiber Eye Brush is fab for applying under eye concealer and creating a good contoured eye crease

 

Cons
  • Limited edition
  • Duo-Fiber Face Brush is prone to shedding
  • Duo-Fiber Contour Brush can leave a few streak marks (They can easily be sorted with your trusty digits)

 

Overall
This is a nice little set and has really encouraged me to get more use out of my slightly neglected cream products. Each brush works wonderfully for its purpose and although the Duo-Fiber Face Brush can be prone to shedding and the Duo-Fiber Contour Brush can leave streak marks, the brushes as a whole are good quality and I’d definitely recommend.

    I'm starting to think that I got a dodgy set of these brushes because I find them so incredibly scratchy, especially the eye brush! It scratches so bad! x

    I absolutely love the Reach Techniques brushes. I haven't tried this set yet but they look lovely. I especially like the look of the eye brush – looks perfect for blending concealer. x

  • Laura Lages Neto

    The Duo-Fiber face brush looks like something i could get a lot of use! It's too bad that it sheds, that's not very usual from real techniques (i think!), i always heard these brushes are wonderful and the only one i own i really have no complaints about! and i didn't know that store, it's just a shame that it's US based, i'm always afraid to order from there because of possible extra taxes but it really has nice things 🙂 thank you for this review! xoxo Laura

    • Real Techniques actually told me to contact them about the shedding brush so I think it may be faulty. I know what you mean Laura, I'm always afraid of getting taxed xo

  • Laura Black

    Love your review of these brushes, I was definitely thinking of trying them! Great job 🙂

  • LaaLaa Monroe

    I still need to get my hands on these brushes and I think now I will – thanks for the code and heads up. I always use my Real Techniques brush. Love them, great quality and a year on there still like brand new xo
