Review: Real Technique brushes!

Hi dolls!

I'm so excited to be doing this post as I've wanted these brushes for a LONG time! Allow me to rant about them lool
These beautiful babies you see below are called Real Techniques and they're by Samantha Chapman (popular makeup artist/youtube blogger). Most youtube bloggers I'm subscribed to are fans of the brushes, so you can imagine my excitement!
Unfortunately, they cannot be purchased in Nigeria at the moment :( so I had to wire money to a friend to help me purchase them. I got the Core selection and the starter set and they each cost £22 (N5742) per set even though it says $18 on the website.

P.S The captions show the names of the individual brushes and what I use them for




Core Selection  set
-Contour brush (to contour)
                                    - Pointed  foundation brush (to apply concealer)
                              - Detailer brush (to neaten and sculpt brows)
                - Buffing brush (to apply foundation)
Starter set
                           - Crease brush (to blend and apply transition colours)
  - Liner brush (to apply cream/gel liners)
    - Angle brow brush (to define eyebrows)
                   - Shadow base brush (to apply eyeshadow base)








The Real Technique brushes are made from Taklon bristles, hence they are synthetic and so, cruelty-free. Before I got them, I was using the Elf powder brush to apply foundations whether creamy or liquid and tbh, the Real Techniques buffing brush works the magic! It works the product well into my skin and dries faster than the Elf after being washed.

 Pros:
1. The brushes look pretty expensive
2.They're also very convenient and comfortable
3. Brush hairs DO NOT shed
4. Crease brush can be used as a blending brush and even concealer brush

Cons:
1. Starter set doesn't have an eyelid brush

 More pros than cons! Definitely worth every naira spent! My favourite brushes have to be the contour and buffer brush(for liquid and creamy foundations)
