Real Techniques Brushes



 So after seeing loads of really good reviews and lots of YouTube videos of beauty gurus using these brushes I thought I would give them a go and I have definitely not been disappointed! There are so many reasons why these brushes are the best I've ever used. For one they're pretty cheap, for about £20 you get this set with four brushes in so it's about £5 a brush, you can pay that much for one brush that isn't anything like the quality of these. I can't think of a day that has gone by that I haven't used these brushes for putting my makeup on, I start with the buffing brush for foundation, at the moment I'm using the L'Oreal True Match foundation which is pretty thin in texture and this brush seems to blend the foundation better than the actual pointed foundation brush which I find is better for thicker foundations. I do like the buffing brush for powder which is the perfect size for it so I could do with getting another buffing brush really. The contour brush is used for bronzer. I only use the detailer brush for if I'm wearing eyeshadow but it's a really good brush for that too.

The next thing about these brushes is how soft they are, when I bought them I sat there for a while brushing them across the back of my hand and my cheek, they are just that soft. Then when I need to wash them they seem to dry instantly which is always a plus, with other brushes I've had them drying for a few days and I can't use them when I need to.

I love how classy these brushes look, is that really sad? I like to be proud of my brushes and I really can be with these. The matt black contrasted with the rose gold looks really pretty, well done Sam and Nic Chapman!

I'm definitely thinking of buying some more of these brushes, not sure which ones, maybe when I find a need for a different type of brush or I fancy treating myself I'll invest in some new ones.
