Advantages: great value for money
Disadvantages: i want them all now
I have always loved make-up, and when I was little my mum would always find me up to no good in her make-up bag, spilling most of it on carpet.
I truly found my love for make-up when I was around 14, I used to save up all my money and buy all the latest products about.
At Christmas time I would always get a kids make-up set with its own pair of brushes but I would never use them as I have always applied foundations and eye shadows with my hand.
If I did ever use a brush it would be for my bronzer, which I could cringe when I think back to my gold cheeks!
About a year ago now I was bored and browsing through YouTube when I came across a make-up tutorial on Jenifer Lopez. I was so intrigued by this I had to watch more, once the video was over I subscribed to the channel and found loads more videos just like it.
The woman in the video was Nicola Chapman now (Haste), who does these kind of videos with her older sister Samantha chapman. There channel name is Pixiwoo they also have a Pixiwoo-madness channel as well as their own blogs.
Until I watched their videos I had never really seen anyone applying there make up with brushes and definitely not foundations. During and after each video, either Sam or Nic explain what product and what brushes they are using. Every time I have searched the brushes they mention, I am always shocked at the prices and know there is no way I can afford them all.
One day I was watching one of Nicola's videos and she mention she was using the Real Technique Core Brushes by Samantha Chapman, I was really excited to find out more but knew they would be far too expensive and out of the question.
When I bought my Real Technique Core Brushes they weren't available in shops so I got mine from www.love-makeup.co.uk I bought them for £20.99. I was so happy and couldn't wait to receive them. I thought they were such great value for money.
In the Real Technique Core Brush Set, you get.
* Detailer brush which is precision cut for concealing problem areas or for use with lipstick.
* Pointed foundation brush for liquid foundation to build custom coverage.
* Buffing brush ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation.
* Contour brush delicately applies highlighter, contour colour to create a sheer soft focus finish.
The brushes look very stylish and look extremely professional. They are a gold colour with a black rubber handle.
Each brush is fantastic and is very versatile as I personally use the buffing brush to apply my liquid foundation.
Before I receive my Real Technique Core Brushes , I hadn't heard of contouring but since I've been using these it has changed the way I wear my make up for the better.
I also find my make-up is lasting a lot longer since using these brushes as the brushes really work any make up into the skin.
Another bonus to these fabulous brushes is the case, normally I hate getting new things as I hate all the packaging that come with it but not with these.
I store my brushes in a make-up cup but if I am ever going away for the night I always put my brushes back in there case and have no worries of them being damaged as I know they are protected.
The case is very versatile and can be turned in to a 2 in 1 case and stand.
I absolutely love my Real Technique Core Brushes and I fully recommend them to anyone, they have just been something I had to have but also changed my whole make up routine and the time I used to take. They are super soft and work well on even the cheapest of make-up.
Since I bought mine they are now selling Real Technique Brushes in Boots.
Once you use these you will never turn back!
Summary: brilliant brushes there are a must buy for anyone who loves make-up
