So You Want Perfect Eyeliner?♥

To do your makeup, you have got to have makeup brushes. For your makeup to look good, you have got to have good makeup brushes. By now, I think it comes at no shock that I love Real Techniques. I already own their Core Collection and Eye Makeup Brush Starter Kit, both I adore. When I received the Collector's Edition Eyelining Set at Christmas from my cousin, I was overjoyed - she clearly knows my love for the brand!

The set includes four brushes, each with the same design as every other brush in the range. The brushes are the same as the eye brushes and are purple, yet, instead of the matte finish the normal eye brushes have, these have a shiny, chrome finish. The finish makes them feel that little bit fancier than usual, and I think that's down to the fact that they're part of the collectors edition. As usual, the brand's name is on the handle, along side Sam and Nic's signature. The brushes also have their standard black around the bottom.

The set consists of a smudge brush, eyeliner brush, pointed liner brush and precision liner brush. Each brush has been carefully created to a high standard - the bristles are all super soft. Out of the set, I reckon I use either the smudge brush or eyeliner brush the most. If you didn't already know, I love eyeshadow, so the smudge brush comes in useful when smudging eyeshadow on my lower lash line. For more definition on my upper lash line, the eyeliner brush is great as it's easy to use to apply shadow in place of eyeliner, and can be used for gel eyeliner. I also like to use it for my brows too! The precision liner brush and pointed liner brush are more essential if using gel eyeliner (or black eyeshadow) if your aim is to achieve the perfect cat eye.

All in all, I think these brushes are fantastic. Maybe because I'm a vivid Real Techniques user, I'm biased here. I just find them pretty sitting in my collection but are often used. They are perfect whether they are for eyeshadow or eyeliner. Not to mention that they also wash well too, added bonus!

Have you tried these? If so, did you like them?

  4. I really need to get some brushes, I only use two and I reckon I could get much better results by using specific brushes! The ones I do have are RT though :)

  10. I hadn't actually heard of this set before I read this but Real Techniques are my fave! They look like great brushes if the rest of the range is anything to go off. Unfortunately as I use pen eyeliners, I don't think I'd get much use out of the set but they'd make a great gift for those who use gel liners!
    I love that they could be used for brows or shadows too. x

  13. The smudge brush looks just perfect. I want to wear more eyeliner but think harsh lines are too much for every day - this could be perfect! Great post!
