Real Techniques Core Collection

I feel like I’m a bit late to the party with this one but in case any of you haven’t heard about how amazing these brushes are – they’re amazing!

They’re super soft and I haven’t experienced any shedding after three weeks of use. This set is called ‘The Core Collection’ which focuses on brushes for applying your base.

The one on the far left is a foundation brush which I found distributed my liquid foundation around my face easily. The next one along is a contouring brush to use with a bronzer or high-lighter. I really like this but I could have done with it being a smidge bigger, but I think I have quite a big face :/

The lip brush does what it says on the tin. Well, it’s actually a concealer brush that they say doubles up as a lip brush. I found it wasn’t fluffy enough to blend concealer so I use it for lipstick, which it’s great for. I’d say it’s slightly larger than the average lip brush but I like that. Not sure how easy it would be to use if you have a thinner lip though.

And to the far right is the star of the show – the buffing brush.

 A quick wipe over the face after applying foundation with this and it looks like you’ve been airbrushed. It’s that good. This is the reason I bought the set as I’d read it was worth buying for this alone more times than I can remember. If I remember rightly the set was about £21 from Boots – unfortunately the buffing brush isn’t available to buy separately yet. It’s a really good price for four brushes, especially if you get it on a 3 for 2.

If you’ve tried the Real Technique brushes, what do you think? I’d love to hear from someone who DOESN’T like them!
