Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush

Since I've been using MAC Fluidline as my goto eyeliner lately, I've been needing a change of liner brush. When I heard about the Real Techniques new silicone liner brush, I've just wanted to try it out!
I went on iHerb and bought the Real Techniques brush kits which I wont be doing a review on, since there are so many reviews on it, and lets face it.. there are all amazing brushes.

This costed $4.74 USD which is about $5-$5.50 AUD, how cheap is that?! I'm not sure if they sell this at Priceline since it is quite a new brush, but we all know the prices here are crazy compared with the UK and US.

The brush handle is like the other Real Technique eye brushes, a purple metal casing that surrounds two thirds of the brush whilst the other third is a matte black plastic on the ends, it just gives the brush a really sleek look.

The brush is just like a liquid eyeliner brush but instead of having bristles, its just silicone. The silicone is firmly stuck onto the barrel, while the tip is really flexible to apply eyeliner easily onto the lids. I also really love how the tip cant get ruined compared to bristled brushes so I can always create the perfect flick every single time. 
Really the only bad thing about this brush is how the gel liner dries quickly on the silicone so I have to keep going in the liner or I either have to pack on some more liner on the brush. But that doesnt really bother me that much since the final result of my eyeliner looks amazing when I use this.
Washing this brush is so much quicker too. I use the Daiso puff and sponge detergent to wash my bristled brushes but to wash this brush, you dont have to do the typical, scrubbing onto your palm, you have to put a teeny drop of the detergent and use your finger to scrub away the liner and it just flakes off. And to dry the brush, just use a paper towel and BAM your done, no drying time whatsoever.

I really recommend this brush for people who love the cat-wing or flicked eyeliner look. You seriously need this in your brush collection!


  1. I was contemplating whether or not to buy this brush and I have found my answer! Definitely going to pick it up as soon as I can! x Tara

  2. I really want this brush! It sounds perfect for me <3 <3 <3
    It is much cheaper to order it on Iherb and get it shipped to Oz but then I know I will try to get 4 pounds stuff and get the most of shipping cost -_-
