After reading lots of reviews about these, I finally decided to purchase my first set of Real Techniques brushes. If you don't already know, they were created by Samantha Chapman who is a makeup artist and also part of the Youtube channel 'Pixiwoo'. I've wanted these for so long but I could never fully justify buying a whole set ~ but I recently found myself in need of new eye brushes so I just took the plunge. It's not like they're particularly expensive, this set of 5 brushes cost me £21.99. Let me know if you've used these brushes or any other brands that are good in the comments, I'd love to hear what you guys use! ^-^
I must admit I had high expectations for these brushes, and they did not disappoint me at all! If you've been considering these like I was, I urge you to just buy them because you won't regret it. The brushes are so soft, they are made with Taklon bristles which means it doesn't trap makeup like natural brushes do, wasting less product. I haven't washed them yet but I've heard that they keep their shape well and stay soft.
The set also comes with a case which turns into a stand. I probably won't use the stand but I like the case because it provides extra space for other brushes too, so I can use it for travelling. I think I will use these for a bit before I decide, but I have every intention to purchase the set of face brushes in the future. I haven't tried that many brands of brushes, but these are definitely the best ones that I have used so far!
