Real Techniques Brushes

Hey guys! I have been looking at the Real Technique brushes for a while now since I started watching the Pixiwoo sisters on youtube. The other week ULTA had them on buy one get the other half off! So I sold back some of my textbooks and I got the exact amount that I needed so I went on an ULTA trip. =] I decided to get the Core Collection and the Starter Kit. The Core Collection has face brushes and the Starter Kit is made up of eyeshadow brushes.


Both kits come in very cool little stand that is also a case! There is a base shadow brush, deluxe crease brush, accent brush, pixel-point eyeliner brush, and a brow brush.


 
My favorite brush is definitely the deluxe crease. It is so fluffy but very dense and blends amazingly. I also really like the brow brush and the one that is the accent brush. I am a little disappointed in the pixel eyeliner brush I think it needs to be like half the size that it is the brush seems very large for an eyeliner brush.
This is the Core Collection! The face brushes are definitely my favorite and if your choosing to pick up only one set at first I would say go for this one!  This set has a detailer brush, pointed foundation, buffing brush, and a contour brush.


My favorite brush in the set is the buffing face brush. I love how this is with my foundation. 
My second favorite brush is the contour brush. This is great for my blush. I have been really into cream blushes and lately I have been dabbing a little bit of cream blush and blending it in with this brush. 




I love these brushes I think that I am going to have to stock up on some more of these brushes. Especially Powder brush, the fine liner brush, and the shading brush. Also they are the synthetic brushes and cruelty free.


Also the Buy 1 the 2nd 50% off is still going on at ULTA.
