Perhaps The Brushes That Were Made For Me♥

In July, it's no secret that I fell in love with Real Techniques. I bought the Core Collection (review here) and I've used those brushes religiously since getting them. It's not a surprise that I've wanted to grow my collection even further. When I went into Superdrug, I was looking about and out the corner of my eye, I spied (ha) the Eye Makeup Brush Starter Set reduced from £21.99 to £14.99. And how can one turn that down?!

If you know me, then you will know that I LOVE nothing better than seamless eyeshadow, so these appealed to me. Real Technique brushes are some of the best brushes on the market, and are just stunning! You can't deny the purple and black brushes don't look professional! The brushes also have their dedicated job on them so you won't ever forget what they're for.

Left to right; deluxe crease brush, base shadow brush, brow brush, accent brush and fine liner brush.
I don't know about you, but I think these brushes look incredible sitting alongside my other brushes within my collection. There's just something so amazing about the brushes that I love and makes me want the whole range. Maybe it's just the inner beauty blogger within me..

Deluxe Crease Brush - I adore this brush! It is most definitely one of the best brushes ever created for blending eyeshadow and making it look perfect. The bristles are densely packed together nice and tightly. They are shaped together to look round, and fit fantastically into your crease.

Base Shadow Brush - This is probably the brush which I rely on most. It picks up shadow immensely and then packs it onto the lid. Maybe it's my imagination, but I feel it makes the shadow more pigmented. Or maybe it just picks up product better than any other ol' brush!

Brow Brush - The new best thing ever. I just use it to fill in my brows, simple really. Apart from that, I use it to smoky out colour on my lower lash line. It's angled to my liking to fill in my brows. From using this, my brows are definitely 'on fleek'.

Accent Brush - At the moment, I'm currently using it for a highlight colour in my inner corner and brow bone. It's small and precise enough to get the product exactly where I want it. It's one I use quite regularly and honestly, it comes in handy!

Fine Liner Brush - I haven't found a definite job for this yet, although, I do know once I do, I will love it. I have used it with shadow to give the appearance of liner on my upper lash line. The bristles aren't soft like the other brushes so it makes it easier to use for liner.

I genuinely think these brushes have been sitting in Superdrug waiting for me to pick them up, and I am not afraid to admit that I am (slightly) late on the bandwagon with these but I do wish I'd picked them up sooner! Since I own one too many palettes, these brushes get used almost daily. Of course, I just want to go on and collect even more of their eye brushes because I'm a bit of a hoarder that way..

Have you tried these Real Techniques brushes?

  9. I bought this set years ago and still use a few of the brushes to this day - brilliant for the price although the eye brushes do tend to deteriorate faster than the core collection (probably because of the size haha)

  13. I abso-frickin-lutely love this set of brushes! The deluxe crease brush is my favourite in the set as it's so soft and blends out my shadows perfectly.
    I haven't actually used my brow brush for my brows yet... Perhaps I should, haha. My current brow brush is on its last legs (or bristles, should I say?).
    Great post lovely! xx

  14. Real Techniques is awesome! I own almost all of their regular brushes, but I really want the new gold ones, but they are a bit pricey. I also just bought their gel brush cleaner, and it makes their brushes even softer, and smell amazing. Thanks for sharing :) These brushes really are great.

  46. RT brushes are so awesome! I love the face brushes the most and use several every day. You must pick up the blush brush (I use it as an all over powder brush) and the buffing brush (I think this comes in a kit; you can't get it alone), but they're must-haves for me :)
