Real Techniques Core Collection

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this little set, in particular, the Buffing Brush that I use to apply my foundation. To be honest I only really wanted the set for the Buffing brush because i'd heard such good reviews about it but I now love all the brushes and they've eached worked their way into my daily routine! I knew with it being created by Samantha Chapman, it was bound to be good but it topped my expectations. The Buffing brush is truly brilliant, it applys foundation flawlessly and leaves you with a completely natural look, the brush is super soft as well so it feels lovely when you apply too! Generally I'm using the Buffing brush to apply foundation, but if I need a little more coverage, I use the foundation brush to apply a base and then add a little more with the Buffing brush to get the more finished look. I'm using the Detailer brush to apply concealer, and it's also great, because it's got quite a small head, it works well to blend the concealer in around the under eye area, and finally, I am using the Contour brush for blending in highlighter or applying blush, again, this has got a small-ish head so it works really well to define on the cheekbones! It's an absolutely great set and I'm now desperate to try the Stippling brush to see what that's like. This set also comes with a handy carry case for when travelling which also doubles up as a stand for wherever you do your make up. Considering the quality of these brushes, I think this is a bit of a bargain at £21.99 you can get this here or in Boots.

Have you tried any of the Real Techniques brushes?

  1. I use the buffing brush daily to blend my foundation! I love it, and it doesn't seem to shed at all. Great review!

  2. I really want to buy this too (for the buffing brush). It's a good trick to only have it available in a pack. I got a MAC brush set for Xmas ... but maybe I'll have to just go for it and have extra brushes! x

  3. I am desperate to try these brushes and your review has made me want to even more! I've looked in several large boots stores, none of which seem to stock them so may order online instead x
