real technique brushes

Revamping your makeup brushes – is this a thing? I deep clean my daily brush picks regularly promise and ensure to reshape them and care for them, but you forget how much wear and tear each fibre actually goes through. Case in point, my RT collection. Their quality is unrivalled and hands down they are the most affordable and best value for money brush brand I’ve ever used. Price tag doesn’t determine value here and RT form the majority of my everyday essentials. Although they have done me proud for over two years I kid you not in recent days I noticed they were starting to take a turn for the sad.

Now, it’s not that they stopped working, became defective or were unable to do their job, it’s just that they developed a rather fluffy characteristic which strayed from the normal shape of the brush. My Blush Brush began to look like my Multi Task Brush and my Powder Brush has expanded so much it hardly fits in my storage pot. Washing aside there was only one thing for it, repurchases. I’ve never re-brought a brush before and honestly wasn’t sure if this was the solution, that was until my new Blush Brush arrived. The photo says it all, old one on the left, newbie on the right, it’s plain to see how different they are.

Back when I bought my first RT brush the brand was still in it’s infancy and the longevity of their products was unknown. Although not a single fibre has shed, over the years their shape has diminished so I’ve bitten the bullet and am in the process of replacing my daily essentials. It’s only when you buy a newbie that you realise how this should have been done six months ago ;) So far, aside from shape, there is no difference in quality and they are still my go to brush brand.
