Jumping on the Real Techniques Bandwagon: Stippling Brush

Hey Everyone!

Let me start off by apologizing for my neglect of the blogging scene lately- my exams are in full swing but thankfully I have two weeks to my next one so I can do a bit of posting yay :) Also, hello to my new followers! I can hardly believe I'm up to 69, I'm so proud and thankful for each one of you- ok enough of the cheese already.

So after seeing countless raves about the Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman, I decided to buy the stippling brush as I am in need of a new foundation brush.

Claims: This brush boasts to be "the trade secret for creating airbrushed, high definition results with all types of makeup." 

Brush: The "ultra plush taklon bristles" are super soft and the brush hasn't shed a single hair yet. It smooths foundation onto my skin gently. Also, the unusually thick handle (I think handle is the right word!) allows the brush to stand up right on a flat surface which I love as its a cute addition to my chest of drawers. I have also found that the brush doesn't swallow up foundation unlike my old one so I am actually using less which is fab.

Results: I have to say I am really impressed! The brush blends foundation in really well and using the buffing technique I can achieve a natural look with fair coverage. I definitely think it gives an airbrushed look and can be used to apply foundation, powder, blush and much more. Basically it is the perfect multitasking brush.

Rating: 10/10 - For me, this brush is all it claimed to be and more, and deserves all the praise it has received.

You can buy this brush for £11.99 in Boots and online at

This has really made me want to buy more Real Techniques brushes, though I need to stop myself as I have a brand new set by Ruby Hammer and Millie Kendall called Scarlet & Crimson that I bought in the Boots January sale so I have to make use of them.

I'm off to watch Celebrity Juice- so excited as Caroline Flack is on it and I love love love her! Can't wait to see what she is wearing :)

Have you got any Real Techniques brushes? Which are your favourite?
PS- would anyone be interested in a JulzObsessions channel on YouTube? I'm considering the idea, though I'm not sure as I think my accent would stick out terribly :P


  1. I want some Real Techniques brushes :-( definitely start youtube! I want to start but don't have the guts X

  2. I would definitely recommend trying them, I think it is a bit steep (for me a teenager) but it can multi-task really well! Do you think? You see I'm the same, I think it would be a bit embarrassing especially if people were like "ew you sound weird" :) xx

  3. Sounds like a great brush! I need to get more brushes myself, I usually focus on other beauty items like lipsticks ect. I neglect buying brushes haha
    I'd be totally interested in you making a youtube channel! I have one myself and its fun :) my youtube is vintagelace95 but youtube has been messed up so I don't know if you can find it :(
