Beauty Review: Real Techniques Core Collection Set (and where to buy them cheaply!)

Friday, February 28, 2014

I've never really been into make up until the past few months. I've been the kind of girl to stick on the same make up all the time and never really change it. I was introduced to Real Techniques brushes by my friend Myfi on a trip to Boots last year when I was at university and I've loved them ever since. I first bought the expert face brush and I needed to add this set to my collection!

I've probably had this set since about October i'd say. It's been an absolute LIFESAVER and I use this collection every single day. My favourite of the set being the 'buffing brush' which is perfect for applying foundation with. I also use the contour brush everyday to contour or just apply bronzer!

I love the detailer brush (which is the long thin one) It's perfect for applying lipstick or hiding a spot with concealer. I barely use the pointed foundation brush but the other 3 I use everyday and have done for months!

I didn't want to pay full retail for these brushes as £20.99 seems like a lot of money! I managed to get these on a buy one get one half price offer (I bought the eye brushes too) so I saved myself a few pennies. Other places you can get Real Techniques brushes cheaply are on Amazon for about £15 which is really good! The price on Amazon tends to go up and down from day to day so it's best to save yourself a fiver and pick up a set fast!

What do you think of Real Techniques Brushes? Have you got any of the sets? Or the core collection set?
