Real Techniques Starter Set

I think make-up brushes are just as important as make-up products. In all these years I have been a fan of two brands that do make-up brushes really well: Zoeva and Real Techniques. Despite the fact that I love them both so much I only have one RT brush: The Expert Face Brush. Now this brush is bloody amazing. I bought it in London two years ago and it still blends in my foundation seamlessly. I think that's why I love Real Techniques so much as a brand, because if this brush is that good the rest of them have to be amazing too.

Now recently I was shopping with my mum and while she was looking for perfumes I stumbled across a pile of the Real Techniques Starter Sets with 33% off. I love make-up just as much as a good discount and after a conversation with me - This set is so cheap! Yeah but do you really need it? Well no, but they are cheap and it's always handy to have more brushes. Okay buy it! - I bought them.

In the set you will find:
A base shadow brush: applies a smooth, flawless foundation of colour.
A deluxe crease brush: soft, oversized design for effortless contouring.
An accent brush: for precision detailing, highlighting and smudging.
A fine liner brush: for precision application of liquid of cream eyeliner.
A brow brush: distinctive shape easily defines eyebrows.

I own a few eyeshadow brushes that I love a lot. The MAC 217 for example is one of my all-time faves, but I don't really like to use it with cream products. These brushes are perfect for any type of eyeshadow and they blend everything in perfectly. I love the base shadow brush a lot, because it applies my eyeshadow so well. Recently I have been using my Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes in Lots O’ Latte a lot and I always blend it out with the base shadow brush. My eyeshadow looks so lovely after blending and it has really made me more excited about taking one of my eyeshadow palettes, that I hardly ever use, and create a gorgeous look.
As a brow junkie the brow brush is also one of my absolute faves. The brushes also come in a really handy case which is always good for travelling and I love the different types of brushes you get in this set. If you just get in to make-up then it's absolutely perfect, because it covers a lot of things; eyeshadow, eyeliner and eyebrows. 

In the end I paid €17.50 for this set, which is a pretty good deal considering it normally sells for €30,00. I think it's a great all-round set for any eye look and I can't wait to buy more Real Techniques brushes. The 301 Flat Contour and Core Collection Set are already on my wish list!
