Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush
Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush. I love all my real techniques brushes – awesome quality and quite reasonable price. My whole brush kit is 90% real techniques. However, the only issue I have with some of the brushes is that they are too bulky to store and more so when you travel with them. This was the primary reason why I bought Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush. Let us find out more about the brush.

‘Go mobile with our new retractable design. The firm, full brush provides a smooth application for all-day perfection. Give your skin a rich, healthy glow. This brush is the key for creating a natural finish by expertly blending bronzer or finishing powder. ‘
Price : $13.00
My take on Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush:
Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush is one of the ‘base’ category of the brushes as denoted by the color of the handle. Though I had picked up the brush only because of its retractability mechanism and convenience to store and travel with, I still had some expectations from the brush because of the brand. Well, the brush did not disappoint me at all and in fact, I was quite pleasantly surprised.
The brush is marketed as a bronzer brush, which can be used to add warmth to the edges of your face. Mind you this brush is not for contouring or chiseling out your cheekbones, as you would not get precise lines from this brush. However, this brush is perfect for applying bronzer and blending it beautifully. And not just the bronzer, this brush applies setting and finishing powder as well. The brush is quite apt for any blending purpose. In fact, more than applying a bronzer, I use the brush as a blending brush to add the finishing touches and blend any harsh lines on the face.
Performance: Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush is a duo-fiber brush, with a flat top. The shorter bristles are fine, whereas the longer bristles are slightly stiff. The brush works brilliantly as white bristles pick up the product and black bristles blend the same into the skin, giving an awesome blended finish. All the bristles are very soft and do not feel harsh on the face. Since the brush is not very dense as other real techniques brushes, it does not pick up a lot of product in one application. Therefore, it is perfect for applying bronzers, setting powder and even blushes. Gives a very natural feel to your face.
Packaging: Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush is a retractable brush, which has a metal base in copperish orange. It comes with an orange plastic cover. Once you remove the plastic cover, it exposes an orange metal sleeve that protects the brush. You need to push down the sleeve to use the brush. And you also need to pull up the sleeve to put the cap on. The metal sleeve slides up and down very smoothly and protects the bristles well. Though the brush is slightly heavy and thick, I still find it very convenient to use and store.
Durability: Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush is very durable and sturdy. I have had no issues yet with the retractable mechanism, however, there have been instances where people have complained about it. The bristles do not shed while washing and get squeaky clean as well.
What I love about Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush:
- Duo fiber bristles.
- Picks up small amount of product.
- Blends beautifully and flawlessly.
- Very soft bristles.
- Multi-tasking brush.
- Sleek packaging.
- No shedding.
- Quick dry time.
- Convenient to store and travel with.
- Reasonably priced.
- Cruelty free.
What I do not love about Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush:
- The retractable mechanism may prove faulty.
- Will not fit in a very small clutch, if you need it for a night out.
- May provide streaky application, if used with liquid products.
- Unavailability in India.
Final Impression: Real Techniques Retractable Bronzer Brush is an awesome brush to apply your powders with. The brush picks the right amount of product and blends it beautifully into the skin. The result is a natural and flawless finish. However, the brush is not an essential brush in the kit, if you are happy with your powder brush. Recommended if you looking for a retractable brush!!!
