Today, I will be reviewing for you Real Techniques Fine Liner brush.
The ultimate tool for precision application of liquid or cream eyeliner:
- Look pixel-perfect even in harsh light.
- Ultra-plush, synthetic bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free.
- Extended aluminum handle is light and easy to use.
My Experience with Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush:
I have recently got on the gel liner bandwagon and loving my journey with them so far. But as you know, as important the gel liner, the right brush to apply it would be equally if not much more important. I have had amazing experience with few of the Real Techniques brushes which I still use hence I decided to look no further and get something from this brand itself. I am pleased to say that this product has not only lived up to my expectations but it has exceeded them.
Packaging and Brush:
The brush comes packaged in a good-sized plastic box with some description and tips on the back from the creator of this brand – makeup artist Samantha Chapman. The brush itself has a very smooth and sturdy aluminum handle with a bright purple color. Even though it is very thin, I feel like I can get a good enough grip on the handle and my fingers don’t hurt if I hold it for long. It gives me good precision. I must mention that this brush is completely different from the pixel point eyeliner brush that comes in some the Real Techniques kits. This brush is way better than that one.
I love the fact that all of the Real Techniques brushes have synthetic bristles (yay for being cruelty free), yet they are incredibly soft and high quality. I have not noticed any shedding with any of my Real Techniques brush with this brush being no exception. The bristles on this brush are dense enough that they pick up decent amount of product when you coat it with the gel liner. This helps as you do not have to keep dipping your brush in the gel again and again in the course of making one solid line. The bristles are stiff but flexible enough which is perfect balance that I look in a liner brush. Since it is fine, I can easily make the thinnest lash hugging line with this brush without any issue and it helps making winged liner a breeze (I suck at making a winged liner). To make a thick line you can easily do that by building up the liner. I must mention that it is important to clean the brush or at least wipe off the liner off the bristle after every use. Failing to do so will make the liner dry on the bristles and make the bristles stiff as rock when you try to use it next time.
The brush cleans off very easily with any brush cleaner (I use my Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner sprayed from the bottle and remove any residue gel after every use). The bristles have not lost their shape nor are there any bristles poking out.
Overall, I feel like this is a must-have brush for anybody who is a fan of using gel liners. I reach for only this brush every time I use my gel liner.
In the EOTD, I have used the fine liner brush with my Essence gel liner to create the most perfect winged liner.
