I am a massive fan of the Real Techniques brushes, there’s such good quality for the price – I would even go as far as saying there better than MAC brushes. I have done a review on Real Techniques brushes before – on a different kit which I will link if you want to read that as well Core Collection Review. In the post about the core collection I gave a bit of a back ground of the brushes in that review so if you want to know then you can read that but today I am going to tell you about the starter collection that is for eyes.
As I do with every review that I do I am going to add a description from the Real Techniques website.
“Eye definition goes high-definition with this essential set:includes 5 full-size brushes + case: base shadow brush: applies a smooth, flawless foundation of color
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 applicationbrow brush: distinctive shape easily defines eyebrows
panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + standlook pixel-perfect even in harsh light
ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-freeextended aluminum handles are light and easy to use”
That basically sums everything up perfectly!
How it Works? –Of course there are many uses for the brushes aside from what they are meant for and I’ll give you a quick run-down of how I use like to use these brushes:
-Base Shadow BrushI love this brush and thankfully they sell it individually! I use this for concealer, eye shadow and highlighter – yip I love it!
-Deluxe Crease Brush
I also love this brush for concealer and eye shadow.
-Brow BrushThis is just a simple angled brush, which I use for filling in my eyebrows or for lining either my upper lash line or my lower lash line.
-Accent BrushI use this for either applying shadow on my lower lash line or brighten my inner corner; this is also great for doing really precise work.
-Pixel-Point Eyeliner BrushNow this brush is a bit more restricting, I only really use it for applying eye shadow along my upper lash line to make it look more smoky and undone.
Packaging –The sets come in a black travel case that doubles as a stand. I personally don’t find a use for the stand as I keep my brush in a glass jar but if you didn’t have storage for your brushes it could come in handy.
Price –Since I got the brushes they are much easier to get you can get them from Boots, Superdrug, Love Make-up and Look Fantastic. I personally get mine from Boots.
Overall Opinion –Overall this is a great set that is a must-have, not just for starters but for everybody. I keep a set and am planning on getting another set to keep in my pro kit for doing other peoples make-up and I mostly do bridal. I strongly recommend these brushes they are such good quality for the price and they are kind of like an investment because they are going to last you some time I have had mine pretty much a year and they are still going strong and have never shredded on me and I was my brushes a fairly often. If you have any questions about this kit or any of the other brushes just comment below and I will answer them to the best of my abilities! Thanks for Reading!
