Real Techniques Starter Set

The Real Techniques Starter Set consists of five brushes. These include a base shadow brush, deluxe crease brush, accent brush, pixel-point eyeliner brush and a brow brush:

Base Shadow Brush – Applies a smooth, flawless foundation of colour

Deluxe Crease Brush – Soft, oversized design for effortless contouring

Accent Brush – Designed for precision detailing, spotlighting, highlighting, and smudging.

Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush – Tapered cut is ideal for dense or fine eyeliner application.

Brow Brush – Distinctive shape easily defines eyebrows. 

The brushes in the starter set have purple handles, this indicates that the brushes are designed for the eye area. It is important to know that the Real Techniques brushes are colour coded. Brushes with a purple handle are designed for the eye area, brushes with a golden handle are designed to create a flawless base and brushes with a pink handle are also known as finishing brushes.

The brushes are made with super soft taklon bristles meaning they are 100% synthetic. No animal hair was used in the production of these brushes meaning Real Techniques are a cruelty-free brand! Yay!

The brushes in the starter set are displayed neatly in a black brush case. The brush case has a nifty little handle and you're also able to use the case as a stand.

The Real Techniques Starter Set retails at £18.99 and it is available at Love-Makeup

My final thoughts...

The brow brush is extremely soft and I think it is the perfect brow brush. I think this would also be a fab brush for eyeliner too!

The pixel-point eyeliner brush is far to big in my opinion. I can't see how this would create a perfect line, it's too bulky. Maybe it would be good for applying eyeshadow to your bottom lash line. 

The accent brush is fab, I love how it can be used for multiple purposes. I haven't tried using this brush for smudging but it's definitely on my to do list! 

The deluxe crease brush is ideal for blending because it's not too big and it's not too small. It reminds me of a MAC 217. 

The base shadow is too big, in terms of roundness. If the bristles weren't so round then this would be a brilliant brush for applying a base eyeshadow. I might try blending with this brush. 

Hope this post has been helpful!
