Real Techniques Powder Bleu Influenster VoxBox Review

My first VoxBox! ♡
Last week I was one of the lucky people selected via Influenster to test and review the Powder Bleu Brush Collection from Real Techniques and it has changed my make up game massively. If you don't know what Influenster is, it's an app for shoppers to test products for companies and write honest reviews in order to have a chance at receiving a free VoxBox of complimentary products from different brands to try out. You can browse through the website to be in the know of the hottest products from beauty, to homeware to pet products. It literally has everything. If you're a blogger or a youtuber, I would highly recommend signing up as the opportunities are endless! The more you put into the app, the more you get back :)

Now onto the review - I'm not a make up guru by any means, I'm admittedly quite the newbie and spend half my time watching Youtube tutorials when I want to try a new look but I can still appreciate a good brush! I have ridiculously sensitive skin (my boyfriend can't even kiss me when he's got stubble, it brings me up in a rash it's that bad) so having brushes that don't irritate my skin are a big factor for me when I buy them. I know that Real Techniques are a hugely popular brand, but I personally didn't own any of their products other than their beauty blender sponge until I recieved this box so I didn't know what to expect. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised and they are definitely going to be added to my November favourites.

So I received four of the brushes from their collection:
Soft Powder Brush B01 
Soft Complexion Brush B03
Soft Finishing Brush B02 
Soft Shadow Brush B04

First thing I have to say about these are how beautiful they are! The shape, the way they feel in your hand and the black blue ombre look is just stunning. I've always been one for aesthetically pleasing brushes, having many brushes from Spectrum as they are gorgeous to display on my vanity, so these are a welcome addition to my collection. They look super sophisticated for a drugstore brand and are a good price so what more can you ask for?

The brushes are synthetic and were designed exclusively to use with powders so they are great at applying product without disturbing the makeup underneath. They were created with mimic blue squirrel hair but fear not, no squirrels were harmed in the making, they are completely cruelty free! Some synthetic brushes I've used in the past have been scratchy and brought me up in red marks when using but these are honestly so so soft, you don't even realise you're applying make up. The coverage is perfect and they blend everything so well; from loose setting powder, pressed powder, bronzer, highlighter, eye shadow - you name it, they will apply it beautifully on your skin. 

I've said it before but you don't understand just how soft these brushes are. Ugh. I could glide them over my face all day. They are definitely the softest brushes I own and are now going to be my go to. Whether you're a talented make up artist or a newbie like me, these brushes are an absolute must have. They are exclusive to Boots with the three face brushes priced at £22 and the eyeshadow brush priced at £15. You can't really go wrong, well played Real Techniques! ❤

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.
