review: real techniques brushes


Like so many beauty bloggers, I am a big fan of Sam and Nic from Pixiwoo. I was so excited when Sam originally released her Real Techniques makeup brush line! Unfortunately, the brushes aren't available where I live. So, when I visited London, I hit up every Boots I could!

I was able to find the Base Core Collection and Eyes Starter Set. Sadly, the amazing stippling brush I keep hearing so much about was sold out every place I went. But - I am so excited to finally have my hands on these brushes!


The Base/Flawless Core Collection comes with the Contour Brush, Pointed Foundation Brush, Detailer Brush, and the Buffing Brush. The Eyes/Enhanced Starter Set comes with the Deluxe Crease Brush, Base Shadow Brush, Accent Brush, Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush, and the Brow Brush.

After waiting so long to try these brushes, they absolutely live up to the hype! The taklon bristles are incredibly soft and make applying makeup easier than ever. I love the variety of brush sizes and shapes as well. Many of them are different to any other brushes I have in my collection. They are just gorgeous, gorgeous makeup brushes!

I am so thrilled with the Real Techniques brushes!

Have you tried any of the Real Techniques makeup brushes? What do you think of them?

  2. I have their blush brush, but really want to get some more. I keep waiting too long every time they have a buy one get one 50% off at Ulta and then they are sold out. LOL.
