Real Techniques Core Collection

Monday, 17 February 2014

Hey Dolls.
After reading a million & one reviews about the Core Collection, I had to get my hands on it. I have been using it for quite some time now, so I thought I'd finally share my thoughts with you.

The Core Collection contains 4 synthetic brushes. They come with a black panoramic case that you can store your brushes in when your traveling. All the Real Technique Brushes are colour coordinated so you know what they are for - In this case, the brushes from the starter set are gold.   
Detailer Brush 
I use this to blend eyeshadow primer, I find it does a better job than my finger. It is quite slim & has lots of densely packed bristles so it holds shape well.
Pointed Foundation Brush
I use this to blend concealer, liquid highlighter etc. It feels a lot harder then the other it is doesn't have as much give so it's perfect for blending products into the harder to reach areas.
Contour Brush
I use this to contour my nose, cheekbones & jawline. It is slightly domed & very fluffy so as I'm applying the product, it is also blending it out. 
Buffing Brush
I use this to buff my foundation into my skin. It is quite large & fluffy so it doesn't take long to achieve a flawless base. I also find that I use less foundation when I use this - it doesn't seem to suck up foundation like a few of my other brushes do.
All in all, this set is amazing! Like all Real Techniques brushes, they can be used for a whole number of things. The quality is also incredible, they are super soft & quite affordable. Definiety worth a try.
Are you a fan of Real Techniques?
