Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush Review & Photo's

While watching Pixywoo on YouTube I discovered Nic had a new brush she was using from the Real Techniques Collection Nic & Sam created, it looked interesting as I always struggle to apply winged liner and end up with a wonky wing! Do any of you guys have that problem??
So here's my thoughts on the Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush.
Price
This retails for £5.99 which is a great affordable price for a premium drugstore make-up brush.
 
Packaging
The brush is nicely packaged with an informative description and link to their website for a tutorial on how to use the brush. The brush itself is in uniform with all the other Real Techniques brushes with the coloured handle and black top, the handle is really thin but easy to hold as it is long.
 Application
I tested this brush in comparison to my Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush to see how they both applied. I used a gel liner with this brush and on first use of the silicone brush it felt quite stiff but it gave a nice precise line, personally I sometimes don't have a steady hand when it comes to eyeliner application, so it took me some time to get used to this brush and practise with it as it is so different to the Bobbi Brown one.
Overall Thoughts
Although I am a big fan of the Real Techniques brushes for me personally I still need some time to get used to this type of brush and a bit more practise. I can say that this silicone brush does give a nice thin precise line and is great for doing the feline flick, I think the gel liner wasn't working for me and I think a liquid liner would work better with this particular brush.
Overall I would stick to the Bobbi Brown fine eye liner brush for lining the lash line and use the Real Techniques Silicone liner brush for a feline flick or if I want to draw a very fine line.
 
I award the Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush a 3.5 out of 5
