Real Techniques Brush Set Plus Some!

photo 5 editedGood Afternoon! How are you guys?! I hope well! I am excited to say that I am able to cross off one of my wish list items!  I am now the owner of a Real Techniques set! Yes! A full set! Holy cow, I am in brush euphoria. The brushes that I was using before this purchase were a little sad. The ends were falling off, paint chipping, and not as functional as they once were.

Of course, like most of my fellow makeup lovers in a dream world I would have the Sephora Collection, but sadly that is farrrrrrrrr beyond my budget. Sorry, I am not sorry that I used so many Rs. They were a necessity in that statement. Actually, it could probably use a few more. That is way too much for me to spend on brushes (it would be amazing, though). Since, I sometimes have to make smart decisions I went with the next best option, Real Techniques.

I bought these brushes from Walmart’s website, but you can find them at most drugstores. They are reasonably priced from a little under five dollars to a little over eight dollars a piece. I was actually able to ample up my collection and save money by purchasing some pre-bundled options. This also provided a nice little carrying case for optimal organization! The picture at the top of this blog is my full facial collection! I am also working on expanding my eye collection of brushes!

I wanted to do a little photo collage of my first time using the brushes! So check out below to see little snippets of how I used the brushes! I will say right now, for the price range of these brushes, I am so wonderfully surprised! They are effective, sturdy, sleek, and well designed! I would HIGHLY recommend these!

The stippling brush was soft and light in texture. It worked great for setting my cream highlight with powder for a long lasting look!
The sculpting brush was perfect for enhancing my cream contour.

I am absolutely crazy about this blush brush. It is soft, bouncy, dense, and shaped perfectly. It is unlike any other blush brush I have used, which is a good thing. It can create a wide application or narrow because of this tapered shape.

This buffing brush is soft and dense which helps create a smooth finish. It can be applied lightly or in a buffing motion. I used it to apply my Dim Lighting finishing powder.

I did not take a picture using the small setting brush or the lip brush. I have tried both and liked them just as much as the others! I hope this helps you on your quest to finding better brushes! If you have any questions let me know! Below is the finished look. Xoxo!
