Today's Face - Rocking A Red Lip

Monday, 29 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
Since My Body Confidence Issues | My Lips post I have been trying to wear more lipstick & actually feel confident. I love a red lip & I personally think it flatters me more than any other lip colour.
I used MUA Lip Boom - Bring It which is a gorgeous matte lipstick, it lasts so long & doesn't dry out the lips. I would like to expand my lipstick collection so let me know in the comments what your favourite lipsticks are :)

Garnier Eye Roll Ons

Saturday, 27 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I'm always trying to make my eyes look more awake & get rid of my horrible dark circles, so when I saw the Garnier eye roll ons for only £5 on Amazon I had to try them out & they quickly became a staple in my daily make up routine. 


Garnier Caffeine Roll On;
  I use this after I have moisturised to wake my eyes up a bit before I apply my make up.
I have noticed a difference in my eye area, it doesn't look as puffy & my eyes look bright.
It is a clear gel, it applies really well, absorbs quickly & feels light & refreshing. The little metal ball is really handy as it makes the product distribute evenly & it feels like you are getting a mini massage everytime you apply this. This is also really good if your eyes need a little brightening up throughout the day, it doesn't budge your make up no matter how much you apply.

Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On;
I have had dark circles for a while now, I have tried so many things that say they help but nothing really has. I was quite excited to try this as I have read so many good things about it, I apply this after my foundation & pat in it with my finger. It has made my dark circles so much better to the point where even a BB Cream will cover them. It feels really light & refreshing on the skin & blends in really well without creasing. 

They have lasted so long, I have had both products over a year & I still have alot left even though I use them everyday. They are definitely worth the money & I would definitely reccomend them if you need help brighening up your eyes or getting rid of those pesky dark circles.

What your thoughts on the Garnier Eye Roll Ons?

Wishlist #2

Thursday, 25 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
As I am still on my spending ban I thought I'd do a wishlist post today, I had a little look on Superdrug & had the urge to buy so many things but I stayed strong & resisted. I may treat myself to one or two of these things after my ban has ended but only if I really want them.

MUA Clear Mascara

Wednesday, 24 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I was looking for an alternative for keeping my brows in place,  as the gel in my two brow kits are nearly running out so after having a little browse online I thought I'd try a clear mascara. I didn't know how well it would work so I decided to pick up a MUA one as they are only £1. Bargain!
I fell in love after the first try, my brows felt like there was no product on them at all but they stayed where I wanted them all day without budging. The gel applies smoothly & it's non sticky. The brush is a standard fluffy brushed mascara wand & holds  just enough product to tame your brows. I now use this in my everyday make up routine & even thought it looks quite gross now as I've used it a couple of times, it has to be the best product I've used to keep my brows in place without making them hard & crispy.


 What do you use to keep your brows in place?

My Top Five Lipbalms/Lip Butters For Dry Lips.

Tuesday, 23 April 2013



Hey Dolls.
As we have awful cold weather here in Wales, my lips get dry quite often so I always have to have a lipbalm or three on hand. I thought I would share the lipbalms that have helped the most with my dry lips. I also suggest using a lip scrub as it will make you lips lovely & smooth, I have written a post on the Lush Mint Julip Lip Scrub here.

Nivea Hydro Care;
I adore this lipbalm, it has helped my lips so much especially in the colder months. It feels light on the lips its not sticky or greasy & it actually does something for my lips instead of just sitting there. I noticed a difference in my lips from the first time I used this, they felt hydrated & soft with no horrible dry bits. I think this is around £1 - £2 which is amazing & it lasts so long.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula - Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter;
I can honestly admit the scent drew me in, I didn't know whether it would be a good lip butter or if the scent would be as good as it sounds but I just had to have it. I was incredibly surprised as soon as I took off the lid I could smell the most delicious scent..ever. Its not overpowering & the scent lasts a really long time once on the lips. I love how my lips feel when I use this, it makes them tingle a little but takes away any dry areas even if I use a tiny bit & leaves a natural glossy finish.

Nivea Lip Butter - Caramel Cream;
I have been reaching for this the most lately, the scent is lovely & my lips feel hydrated & soft all day. I put this on as soon as I've cleansed my face & it really does help. The texture is lovely, its rich & creamy but it feels really light on the lips. I love using this when I wear lipstick, it takes away any dry areas so the lipstick looks flawless.

Figs & Rouge Balm - Cherry & Vanilla.
The thing that I love most about this is as soon as it touches my lips it almost feels like an oil, it sinks into my lips & you can actually feel it doing something for the pesky dry area's. I use this mainly in the warmer months as I think it works better. The scent is really nice to, as its organic it doesn't have that "fake" scent like some balms do.

Smoothie Lipbalm - Blueberry Crush
This has the most adorable packaging ever, I love that it looks like a little carton. Its very hydrating but I feel like I have to re apply it more often than any other lipbalm to keep my lips soft all day. The scent is light & makes me crave smoothies everytime I use it. Its good for touch ups throughout the day if you have forgotten your other lipbalm or if you only have a little amount of dryness on your lips.

Whats your favourite lipbalm/lip butter?

My Body Confidence Issues | My Lips

Saturday, 20 April 2013


 Image From Google.

Hey Dolls.
This is the second post in My Body Confidence Issues series & today I'm going to talk about my lips.
I actually used to quite like my lips, they are a nice size, quite plump but when I was about 13-14 I was talking to my friends, minding my own business when this girl who I had apparently wronged in some way punched me in the face & now I have a big ugly scar that has made my lips slightly wonky. For a while it didn't bother me but for the past 2 years it makes me incredibly self conscious.
One of the biggest reasons why I hardly wear lipstick is that I just don't feel confident enough to draw attention to my lips, even though I've been told its not noticeable..to me its like it has a huge sign saying "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!" I've also been told that the holes from my piercings should make me more uncomfortable but I loved my facial piercings but I just had them so long & fancied a change, with the scar I had no choice in having it & didn't particularly want that girl to be violent towards me.



I wasn't going to post about this particular issue but the last couple of days, I have felt worse about the scar. Probably since I took photos for My Lipstick Collection post & noticed just how wonky my lips are. I took so many photos but none of them were perfect & no matter how many times I applied the lipstick it just looked the same or worse than the last photo. I would really like to be confident enough to be able to wear lipstick & not be self conscious about the scar.

My Makeup Collection | Lipstick

Wednesday, 17 April 2013



Hey Dolls.
I want to start a series to show you guys my make up collection, so today I'm going to show you my lipstick collection. I don't really wear lipstick that often but I am trying to get enough confidence to wear it more. Today I thought I'd share what lipsticks I do have, I generally tend to go for reds & oranges more than anything as I think they compliment my skin tone the best.

  L-R | Natural Collection - Lotus & Crimson, Calvin Klein - Orange Too, Revlon - Coral, Rimmel London - Alarm, MUA Lip Boom - Bring It, OMG & Ok.Com.

Mua's Bring It & Calvin Klein - Orange Too have to be my favourite shades to wear, they are both amazing quality & doesn't stick to any dry patches.
I'm not really sure why I bought Mua's Ok.Com as I hate nude lipsticks as they just look like I've slapped a bit of concealer on my lips & Natural Collection - Lotus is very sheer so I usually use it on my cheeks to add a little glow.

I would like to grow my lipstick collection & be able to rock them every now & then, so if you have any recommendations please let me know in the comments. :)

Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Brightening Day Cream & Renewing Night Cream.

Monday, 15 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I didn't really have a set skincare routine, I would pick up any day/night cream I had laying around. My skin was getting a little dry & looked quite dull so I decided to get a day & a night cream from the same range. I had a little look on Superdrug & came across their new Naturally Radiant Range which also had an offer on, so I picked up the day & night cream for £2.99 each instead of £5.99.
I have been meaning to do this review since the first time I used these two lovely products, I have been using them both everyday & night for over a month & I have really seen a difference in my skin.


I quite like the packaging, its simple & is a lovely muted green colour, I would have preferred a pump dispenser as I'm not really fond of constantly dipping my fingers in the tub but that is a tiny flaw I can overlook as they are amazing products.


"Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Day Cream is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone. Enriched with nourishing Sugar Beet extract, this lightweight formulation provides all day moisturisation, helping to smooth and soften skin’s texture, whilst also protecting against UV rays to keep skin looking youthful."

When I opened this, the first thing I noticed was the smell. It has a very light fruity/floral scent but as soon as you apply to the skin it disappears. It is quite a thick cream, so I was a little worried that it might be a little greasy but it absorbed quickly & left no trace of residue. My skin was left feeling soft & hydrated & my skin tone looked more even. Even though I have used this everyday for over a month, it still has quite alot of product left. A tiny bit really does go along way.


"Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone. Enriched with nourishing Sugar Beet extract and skin renewing Fruit Acids, this intensive formulation delivers rich and long-lasting moisturisation, whilst helping to refine skin’s texture as you sleep, leaving skin feeling smoother and looking more youthful."

 Like the day cream it has that light fruity/floral smell but has a slightly thicker consistency, it sinks in just as well with no greasy residue. I don't really notice a difference until the next morning, my skin is so soft, smooth & looks radiant. I have also used this every night & still have alot of product left. It has really helped with those pesky dry patches that the cold weather have given me.  
 
 All in all I am extremely Impressed with Superdrug's Naturally Radiant Range & would happily pay full price for these products. I have always loved Superdrug's own range, I have never been dissapointed with anything I've tried. All of their products are cruelty free & is also vegetarian & vegan friendly. :)

My Body Confidence Issues | My Boobs.

Saturday, 13 April 2013


 Image from Google.

Hey Dolls.
I have decided to start a series of posts about something that every girl goes through, body confidence issues. I have been debating doing this series of posts for a while & today I have decided to do it.
Every girl has something they dislike about themselves, whether its their body shape or their appearance. There's always something.

So to start off I am going to talk about a part of my body I have always had issues with, my boobs. 
I was an early developer, I skipped normal growth & went straight to the doubles. 
I remember being 9 or 10 & going to school one day & in the middle of that day I realized I had forgot to put a bra on & got rather embarrassed about it. At that age I really shouldn't have been concerned with that type of thing but for as long as I can remember I have never left the house without a bra because it made me so uncomfortable. I have always had bigger boobs than everyone I know & even though I don't get the pains that sometimes come with larger breasts, I don't really like them. I have gained more confidence over the past year or so, which is a great thing but if I could change them I would probably jump at the chance. I have considered getting a breast reduction but to be honest, I'm scared I wont even like them after that.

I have had so many girls tell me they would love to have boobs as big as mine but I just don't get why. My boobs jiggle when I walk, I can't wear certain tops because I just end up showing to much cleavage, I get pervy guys staring & girls making comments about whether they are real or not. 
In school I would skip PE lessons because I just wasn't comfortable with the other girls seeing me with just a bra on, they were all normal.  I got bullied alot in school & all the girls would make fun of how I looked, especially how much bigger my boobs were then theirs. To them even if they hated theirs & wished they were bigger, it was still okay to make me feel like crap about mine.

The boost in confidence is pretty much all down to my boyfriend, Matt. Before Matt & I became a couple he was & still is my best friend & I have always been able to talk to him about anything. 
I have told him about how I feel about my boobs & he has been very understanding & supportive.
He tells me I'm beautiful everyday & often tells me that everything about my body is perfect but the bit that really makes the difference is that I know that he means it & hes not just saying it to get something out of it.

Most girls love shopping for sexy new bras to wear but I don't, I mean don't get me wrong getting a lovely new bra still makes me happy but finding one is the hard part. Most shops don't stock my size & it is the worst feeling in the world when you find a bra you are in love with but then they are one or two sizes off or stock bras for the girls who only have small to medium sized boobs. The only place I can get bras my size is Asda's so I generally avoid the bra section in New Look, Peacocks etc. It's the same with clothes, I have to get a size or two bigger than my size or they will cling to me & then I get more unnecessary comments.  

I am going to be quite honest with you now, I am 19 years old with a DD chest & they just seem to be getting bigger & the more they grow the more I dislike them. I've had people tell me that I should consider myself lucky & I have nothing to complain about. If you spent your life avoiding buying certain tops because your worried you will have to much on show, feeling disgusted everytime you get someone staring at you or hearing other girls talk about whether your boobs are real or not, would you like them?

I have set myself a goal, in the next year or two I would atleast like to be more confident about my body & like my boobs enough to rule out having a breast reduction. 
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, let me know if you would like more posts like this in the comments.

Benefit "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer

Friday, 12 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I have read so many great reviews about the Benefit "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer & if it wasn't for the price I would have bought it ages ago, I was browsing Ebay & came across a sample size of it for around £3-£4 so I thought I'd try it to see if it was worth the hype. It has been sitting in my "things to try" basket & today I finally got round to trying it. 

I moisturised as usual & I applied a small amount onto my face & neck, it left my skin feeling really soft & smooth, better than my usual primer but that's where the good points stop. I found it felt quite sticky even after 5 minutes of me letting it sink in & it didn't brighten my complexion at all, I applied my foundation & it blended well but after an hour or so after finishing my make up I noticed it didn't look as flawless. After around 5 hours my make up looked really patchy & you could see all my little imperfections.

 I really wanted to love this primer, to somehow justify paying nearly £23 on it but it was just awful.
If I had bought the full size version, I would have expected so much more! for how much they charge this should have been the best thing I have ever put on my face.

 I am glad I tried it though & I would like to try out more of there products to see if I like them but for now I'll stick to what I know works for me. :)
 
Have you tried the Benefit Primer? What do you think?

My Barry M Nail Polish Collection

Thursday, 11 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I love Barry M polishes, they are amazing quailty, have beautiful colours & are super afforadable. I only have a few at the moment but I am in love with them all. I often reach for my Barry M polishes over anything else as they look amazing in just one coat & last for a week or so with minimal chipping. They also have a subtle smell unlike most polishes, which is amazing as it usually gives me a little headache. Barry M polishes retail from £2.99 to £3.99 which is an absolute bargain. If you haven't tried Barry M polishes I definitely recommend you getting your hands one some. (:

At the moment my two go to Barry M polishes are Plum & Ridley Road.
I love how glossy & pigmented Plum is & The texture of Ridley Road is wows me everytime. I love the bottle, glass makes everything look more lovely & the shape means they are incredibly easy to store.


I will always love Barry M & so far no other brand has wowed me more. They are always coming out with fabulous new ranges. I have only written two posts dedicated to Barry M polishes, so if you would like to read the one about the basecoat & topcoat click here & if you would like to see the texture of Ridley Road click here. :)

Update - I completely forgot to add my Barry M Polish in Matte White. Ooops :/

Do you have a favourite Barry M Polish?

My Sample Hoard

Monday, 8 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
Everyone loves a good sample, its great to know if you like the product before you spend your hard earned money but what if you completely forget about them & end up with 20+ in total.
Well I did, I have a storage box in my room for all my samples & products I'm not that fussed about.
I do tend to chuck things in there & end up forgetting about them. I had a little look today & was quite shocked to see how many I had, so I thought I'd share them with you. (:

I did have quite a few more but I have given some to my mum, just some doubles I had or things I know I don't like. The samples range from shampoo's & conditioners to BB Creams to Anti ageing, I'm not particularly sure why I have an anti ageing thingy to get rid of crows feet as I am only 19 & don't have any yet. I suppose they are there for when I eventually get some. I am making it my mission to get through all of these samples within the next couple of weeks.

I completely forgot about the perfume samples I've got, which I generally buy the full bottle if I like it & then put the sample away & forget about it. I only have 6 samples & I really want to use them, they are so handy to throw in my bag & use while I'm out if needed.


Are you hoarding any samples?

My First Dress Purchase In 2 Years

Saturday, 6 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I have only had 2 dresses in the last 8-9 years & this one is the second, I have always been self concious about my body as I devoloped early so I quite disliked my body for a good number of years, so I would only buy things that hid my shape inside of embracing it. A while back I decided while working at the charity shop I volunteer at that I would look through the dress section & atleast try one on. I love dresses...on other people but I can never find one that I like on me, also I hate trying things on in changing rooms, I feel really uncomfortable but since reading Sian's blog - Forever Fabulous In Bows I want to embrace my curves more, I have a lot more confidence now & thanks to Sian I know I can look amazing even though I'm a curvier girl. Sian always looks so amazing & never lets her shape or size stop her from wearing what she wants, which is an amazing thing. I have felt pretty much my whole life that if you want to be beautiful you have to be skinny. I love my curves thanks to my boyfriend, amazing friends & family & Sian, her blog inspires me to try new things that I wouldn't wear usually, so that's why I tried on this dress & decided to buy it. I will wear it out & to be quite honest the look on my boyfriends face & that he stopped mid sentence when he saw me in it made my confidence sky rocket. It was the first time Matt has seen me in a dress other than the one photo I have of me wearing the first dress I ever bought which I only wore once.

I thought I would share a photo of me wearing it as I wore it for Easter, I do feel quite self conscious about posting this photo as I am not quite sure if this dress suites my body shape.

Excuse the messy room.
 
The dress has a black & white stripe top with buttons down the centre & then the skirt is plain black, it is a very stretchy soft material, it is quite figure hugging on the top but then it flares out a little on the skirt part so it doesn't cling to my hips & it is just above the knee which is something I love as I am not fond of my legs.

Revon Bare It All Lustrous Lotion - Peachy Tease

Friday, 5 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I have been feeling my skin has been a little dull lately, so I rummaged through my make up draws & found this. The Revlon Bare It All Lustrous Lotion, I bought this forever ago from Amazon for around £3, Bargain! I found that mixing it with your foundation or moisturiser is the best way to use this. I tried it over my foundation & it ended up leaving it looking a little patchy. It has subtle gold shimmer that leaves a lovely natural glow & makes me look awake & ready for the day. I have been mixing it with my Rimmel London wake me up foundation to give it an extra boost. It helps leave my skin with a flawless finish & has quite a subtle smell. You get 22ml of product & you only need a tiny bit so it will last for a long time. I occasionally use this as a highlight under my brow on its own or apply a powder highlight over it, its not sticky & doesn't leave a greasy feeling on the skin. It catches the light beautifully & the little pump on the tube is incredibly handy. I definitely reccomend this product, It is amazing & so affordable. I haven't been able to find it anywhere else other than amazon & I haven't been able to find any more information on it. If you know whether it has been discontinued, please let me know in the comments.

Battle Of The Brow Products

Thursday, 4 April 2013



Hey Dolls.
I have been switching between my brow kits & pencils lately so I thought I'd do a little post about them.I am a little obsessed with doing my brows, it makes me feel alot more confident when my brows are shaped nicely & filled in.

So first up are the brow kits,
L-R; Gosh Brow Kit - 001 & MUA Pro-Brow Kit.

Gosh Brow Kit;
This is the first brow kit I bought, it was £7.49 which I think is pretty good considering how long it has lasted me. [ I bought it in Jan 2012 ] It has three powders, a wax cream to set the brows in place, plus a double sided applicator. I use the lightest shade but I will occasionally mix the medium shade & the lightest shade together to vamp it up a bit. The wax holds my eyebrows in place perfectly without making them hard no matter how much I use. The only thing I dislike about the Gosh Brow Kit is the sponge applicator to apply the brow shade is falling apart, it now has quite a big hole in it at is quite difficult to apply the product. All in all I would give this a 9/10.

Mua Brow Kit;
 I always get excited when a new MUA product comes out. So when I saw they had a brow kit, I had to have it. It has two brow shades, a highlighter, a wax cream to set the brows in place, a double sided applicator & mini tweezers. It was a bargain at £3-£4, I use the lightest shade & like the Gosh Brow Kit I will occasionally use a tiny bit of the darker shade to vamp it up. The highlighter is a very dark peachy colour & doesn't really work well as a highlighter, The wax holds my brows in place really well without making them hard but It doesn't last as long as the Gosh one so I will have to touch it up if I'm having a bad brow day. The applicator is amazing, I love that it comes with a slanted side to apply the brow shade. The tweezers are okay, they are a little stiff so I usually find it hard to use.
All in all I would give this a 8/10

Swatches;


The Brow Pencils;
T-B Mua Brow Pencil - Blonde & Maybelline Define A Brow - Dark Blonde

Mua Brow Pencil;
I picked this up because I could only find the Maybelline Define A Brow with a set for £8, I didn't want a hoard of brow stencils & tweezers so I needed a cheaper alternative. This was a bargain for only £1, It is very creamy texture which I really like, I only have to use a little bit of product. It is a brilliant match for my brows & it lasts for ages. The brush is very basic & sturdy but seems to get really dirty within one or two uses but it does blend out the product really well. I would give this an 9/10

Maybelline Define A Brow; 
This was the first Brow Pencil I bought, like I said I have very fair brows so they look like they aren't there if I don't fill them in. This is a little darker than the MUA Brow Pencil but at the time I bought this I did have my hair dyed black. It doesn't look that dark if I only use a tiny bit & blend it out enough. The brush is amazing, it is a very thin toothed comb which makes sure the product is blended really well & doesn't make sure your brows look natural. The only two problems I have with this is it is quite hard so I had to apply a little pressure & broke the tip off & I can't see how much product is left as you twist it up. I would give this a 8/10.

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Split End Protection Cream

Wednesday, 3 April 2013


 Hey Dolls.
I have always had issues with split ends and nothing really seems to work, I was having a browse on the Superdrug website & came across this. It was on offer for £1.85 & had free delivery, bargain!
I ordered it on the 28th March but only received it today because of Easter & what not. I have tried this for the first time today & I was so impressed with it, I just had to tell you about it. The ends of my hair are awful, they are dry & have split ends as I have dyed my hair quite a bit & used so much heat on my hair & for the most part didn't use any heat protectant. Naughty Naughty! It felt quite weird when I first applied it because it has the consistency of a thick conditioner but left quite a greasy residue on my hands like some body lotions would. I was quite worried it was going to make the ends of my hair greasy when it dried & then I would wash it all over again luckily it has made the ends of my hair incredibly soft & shiny. My hair looks much healthier & smells amazing. It has a fresh, fruity scent, that's not to overpowering. I am so excited to carry on using this in my daily hair routine. :)

My First Real Techniques Brush | The Stippling Brush

Tuesday, 2 April 2013


Hey Dolls.
I am so excited to be able to finally write this post, On the 31st March I received my Real Techniques Stippling Brush by Samantha Chapman through my letterbox but I have only just gotten round to using it as I have only been putting on some mascara & filling in my brows. I purchased it on Amazon for £9.49 which is a bargain as it is usually around £11-£13. I have never been one to spend alot of money on make up brushes, I think the most I've spent is about £5-£6 for a set that I only use about 5 things from. I have wanted to get the Real Techniques brushes since they came out. I have read so many great reviews on them but I just couldn't justify £10 for a brush, compared to other brush brands it is very affordable but I just wasn't sure if it was worth the money.
 So I ordered a Elf Stipple Brush instead & I do really love it but the Real Techniques one was still at the back of my mind screaming "ASHLEY BUY ME! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO" so the other day I did & I am incredibly happy that I spent the £10 for one of the most amazing things I have every laid my eyes on.

When I first started using foundation I used my fingers, I thought there wasn't a need for make up brushes until I decided that having to wash my hands or use a wet wipe after every time I applied foundation & then do it again after doing the rest of my make up was ridiculous. My hands were getting really dry because I hardly used hand moisturiser either so I bought a brush, it was  the Elf Flat Foundation Brush for £1.50 it was a bargain but after a while I didn't like basically painting my face so I went back to my fingers until I bought the Elf Stipple Brush it was only £3.50 & I was incredibly happy with it, I found the stippling motion very relaxing but recently I haven't really liked the finish of my foundation maybe because even though I should & I am quite disgusted, I very rarely wash my brushes, maybe one every 2 weeks but it is a tedious chore & I'm never sure what to use. Do I use shower gel, shampoo or should I purchase something specially designed for washing your brushes? Its all a bit of a kerfuffle.

Onto the brush;
Even though it is bright pink, it is an incredibly beautiful brush. It has an extended aluminum handle so it is light & easy to use. The bristles are defined & incredibly soft, The brush hairs are very flexible & have individually defined bristles that create a bouncy & gentle touch to the skin.
It left me with a flawless finish & I didn't have to touch up with my fingers afterwards. It is slightly thicker at the bottom so you can stand it up on your desk if needed. I have only used it once so far but I really enjoyed applying my make up today, I stippled the foundation on & then buffed it in. You don't need to use alot of product as this brush really does make it go along way. So far I am really impressed with this brush, I had quite high hopes after all the reviews I have read & It didn't let me down. I will be getting more of the Real Techniques brushes soon, let me know in the comments which ones you recommend.





Do you love the Real Techniques Stippling Brush?
