Hey loves! So since I've recently started to broaden my make-up horizons and step out of my usual mascara/bronzer/no foundation bare minimum that I do daily (LE GASP!), I've been in the market for some higher quality make-up brushes that won't break the bank. Enter Real Techniques by Sam Chapman!

Real Techniques by Sam Chapman Blush Brush is for contouring and defining cheeks. Made with super soft hand cut synthetic taklon bristles. 100% cruelty free.

Does the name look familiar? Sam Chapman is one half of PixiWoo on YouTube. I can honestly say watching their videos is what piqued my interest in trying new things with make-up. I used to go crazy following their gorgeous tutorials!

Now onto the brush: This brush is ridiculously soft. Imagine brushing a cloud on your cheeks. That soft. That being said, I did have a bit of a hard time using it as a contouring blush brush. It's just a little too big and fluffy for that. I did end up trying it as a bronzer/all-over-face brush and it was perfect! I also feel like this brush is something you can use more than once a day to touch up because it is so soft. Overall, while I didn't use the brush to contour, I do believe this is a must to have and use in your daily routine as a multi-purpose brush.
