real techniques core collection


I bought this brush set a month or two ago when on a random splurge in Boots. Created by Samantha Chapman, of Pixiwoo fame, these brushes were destined to be a blogger's favourite + for damn good reason too! These brushes are by far the softest I own + worth the money even for just the buffing brush! Although I'm a firm believer in the power of good quality make up application tools, I only own one MAC brush. I've picked them up numerous times but just can't bring myself to spend £30+ on a single brush, I'm way too thrifty for those prices!

This beauty of a set contains four dense, light weight brushes + a really clever pouch which doubles up as a stand! Although the brushes are labelled with their designed use, I think they're so multifunctional! I use the buffing brush to apply liquid foundation, the detailer brush for lipstick, the pointed foundation brush for my MAC studio finish concealer + the contour brush to contour. I'm not sure if this is the correct way to use these brushes but it certainly works for me!

I've washed these brushes around 5 times now + I don't think they've shed a single hair between them! Also they seem to dry a lot quicker than my other brushes even though they're so dense. I'm totally converted to Real Techniques now + can't wait to treat myself to the blush brush, powder brush + starter set out of my pay + Boots points! Have you tried any of these brushes yet?

  4. Ooooh, these brushes do look lovely. The Pixiwoo sisters are great, and Samantha's creations sound so nice. The head company are 'Paris Presents' who have some fantastic brands under their wing. My favourites are EcoTools! ....Both ethical and affordable. Love them!
