I'm in love. I'm deliriously happy. It makes me glow like nothing else. It feels so good, I just can't stop touching it. Now before you start thinking naughty things, let me tell you what I'm in love with. It's a blush brush. Yes, a makeup brush. I realize it's silly, but until you try it, you just can't appreciate the way I feel about this blush brush.
Unlike other celebrity inspired/endorsed products Sam had hands on input in developing these brushes. It was important to Sam that the brushes be vegan. Unlike many other vegan/synthetic brushes, this blush brush actually picks up pigment nicely and deposits it smoothly.
The bristles on the Real Techniques brushes are hand cut taklon. I have always been biased towards animal hair bristles. The synthetic fiber brushes I have used in the past haven't held pigment the way animal hair does. The taklon fibers on the Real Techniques brushes are finely spun and pigment clings to them. The fibers don't break and fray the way animal hair does. Perhaps most importantly taklon bristles are 100% cruelty free.
The Real Techniques blush brush is comparable to MAC in quality in every way. Where they are not comparable is in price. The equivalent blush brush will run you $52 at the MAC counter. At Ulta the infinitely better Real Techniques brush costs $8.99, that's a savings of over $40! Give it a try, you might fall in love to.
