Real Techniques Core Collection

In my last post, this was on my wishlist, since then I've had my birthday and decided to treat myself and buy it with some birthday money. I'm so glad I did. These brushes are great value for money and are a revolution to the way I've been applying some of my makeup. Before buying the Real Techniques Core Collection, I used the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply my liquid foundation. I wonder how I coped even using that once I used the Buffing Brush. I love how easily it buffs in my foundation without any streaks or using up tons of product.

The kit contains a detailer brush, pointed foundation brush, buffing and contour brush. I used the detainer brush as a under eye concealer brush which worked well, but using my fingers is still much faster and easier. I prefer the buffing brush for my foundation so will be using the foundation brush for something else, that's what I love the most about the Real Techniques brushes, they're so versatile!

I haven't had much of a chance to try all of the brushes out properly but I love the contour brush, it's small enough to subtly contour my face without the muddy effect that I can sometimes leave the house with. This is a great investment in my eyes and to anyone who's thinking it's £21.99 - yes it is, but their other brushes range around the £10 mark each and in comparison to the likes of Mac, Sigma brushes etc, you actually get a really good deal.

Have you tried out the Real Techniques Core Collection set?

Ps. I kindly got a brilliant, snazzy, new camera for my birthday from my boyfriend so hopefully, my pictures should improve. I'm learning how to use it slowly but surely, I'm only used to my small digital camera!

Pps. I'm away in Germany for a few days from this morning (scheduled post and tweets here and there) so I will be having a break for a few days and will be back next week with some better photos and content hopefully!
