After what seems like an eternity, I finally got the Real Techniques Core Collection-better late than never I suppose. And these are actually the first Real Techniques brushes that I have ever bought or owned, so I was pretty excited to finally see what all the hype was about!
I purchased these brushes from Boots, and they were £10.99 instead of £21.99 which I believe is an amazing offer. I'm not sure how long this offer is going to last for, but I will link to the offer anyway-http://www.boots.com/en/Real-Techniques-Core-Collection-1403_1252038/
The brushes obviously look beautiful (as you can see above), they are so so soft and the case that comes with them is pretty cool too...
I'm not sure that I use all the brushes in the way described on the boxing, so today I thought I would just explain how I use each brush and what I like about each one.
1. I believe that this is the contour brush, and surprisingly, unlike the rest of the brushes I actually use it for its sole purpose. The thin, yet curved brush head makes it great to get into and excentuaute the bone structure and also to effectively contour. Because the brush is great quality as well, my contour doesn't look patchy or too brown which again is a brilliant thing!
2. This brush is meant to be used for foundation, but as it is quite small I feel more inlcinded to use it for applying concealer under the eyes etc. I really like the shape of the brush, and as it is pointed it will make it easier to get the makeup into certain areas under the eyes, or around the nose.
3. I'm yet to really use this brush, but I think I will probably use it for the finer details in lip and eye makeup looks. The brush is really nice as it is so super thin so I can imagine it will be great for finicky things, and it's also different from any other brush shapes that I currently own, so I can't wait to try it out properly!
4. I think this brush is meant to be used to apply products such as powder, but I instead use it for foundation. It's really great to use to just dab and blend in the foundation and BB creams that I have, and as it is a large brush it means that you can cover more area quicker which is a definite plus.
The case that the brushes come in is also really good, and adds that extra finer detail to the product set as a whole. I love how it will come in handy to store the brushes when I'm at home, and also when I go on holiday in the future.
I know that I got these brushes on offer and at a very good price, but I do honestly think that they are worth the money anyway. You pay for the quality, and that is all I can really say-they are soft, fantastic at applying makeup and I'm in no doubt that they will wash really easily as well.
Do you own this collection or any of the Real Techniques Brushes? If so, what do you think of them?
