Review | Real Techniques Starter Set

Hi lovelies,

I put this on my Christmas list and was lucky enough to receive it from my brother. I have wanted to add it to my Real Techniques brush collection for ages. They are by far the best brushes I have ever used. They are affordable and easy to get hold of in Boots. I own the Core Collection and the Blush Brush, I aim to own every other one from the range very soon! The Real Techniques Starter Set comes in the same compact case as the Core Collection. It is a handy case to have as it perfectly holds all the brushes and it also works as a stand. In the set you get five brushes that are designed to give you a high definition make up look


The Deluxe Crease Brush is the biggest brush with a dome shape that is designed for contouring, I personally find this brush is brilliant for concealer. The Base Shadow Brush is the second biggest brush and is designed to apply a smooth and flawless foundation of colour, this brush is brilliant for applying colour all over the eyelid. The Brow Brush is designed to shape and define eyebrows, I use this everyday now and do not remember how I sorted my eyebrows out before I had this! The Accent Brush is is designed for precise detailing, I use this for highlighting, smudging and contouring. The last brush is the Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush has a tapered brush and is designed for dense or fine eyeliner application, I have been using this for applying eye shadow as eyeliner and smudging it. 

All of these brushes are incredibly soft and make applying make up so much easier. They clean well and do not shed at all. The brushes are lightweight too and I love the design. If you are looking to add a few more brushes to your collection or even start one I would definitely recommend this. 

The Starter Set costs £21 and can be picked up from Boots.
Are you as in love with Real Techniques as me?

  2. Never had a brush set. But I love the color though, it's my fave. It's my first time to read about Real Techniques, I don't think we have it here in the Philippines.

  11. These were on my ridiculously lengthy Christmas list, too, but I didn't get them. I didn't mind but now reading reviews about them is killing me. Haha.
