Air-brushed Perfection

have spent tons of cash updating my tools with the latest brushes and trends. I was still in need of finding a brush that felt like velvet but gave me the air brushed finish. I was introduced to the
Real Technique



brushes at a Make-up expo and fell in love with the results.

I bought myself the Expert Face Brush, The starter kit and the core collection kit from clicks. It set me back a good few pennies, well actually R1800-00 to be correct. I went home like a kid that god a ton of sweets, super excited and eager to play. I took them all out and analysed them in detailed.





I had tried each brush out with my different products, that I do have, I played for hours and each time i achieved an Airbrush finish with a soft velvet feel of a brush. I was so impressed i tried it on varies friends to see if the effect is the same. to my surprise... Yes... it was...



I don't regret buying them, it just takes a while of saving to buy all the brushes launched by Real Techniques.




They are worth the buy and the results speak volumes...

Really good value for money

The quality of Real Techniques brushes are so so so good and they are super affordable. Silky soft, easy to clean ans since I have had mine - not a single hair has shed. They blend any and all products beautifully. Definitely recommend them all.

Soft and Beautiful. The perfect set.

This is my first set of brushes. I've heard of how good the Real Techniques brushes are and decided to invest in this set. When they arrived I was so excited. They are so beautiful and feel like silk on your skin.

You can use them for the suggested uses but they are versatile. I love the buffing brush for setting powder and the contour brush for blush or highlighter. The detailer brush can be used with lipstick. I like using the detailer brush for highlighting the inner corner of my eyes.

The foundation brush is my favourite from the set. It apples my liquid foundation evenly and feels amazing on my skin.

The brushes retain their shape and feel after washing. The case/stand that it comes with makes for easy storage. I did pay R410 for this brush set but they are really worth it.

Real Techniques Brushes

These are by far some of the BEST brushes I've used!!!
Real Techniques brushes are available at Clicks stores and range between R299-R599.
Yes, they are pricey but they are definitely worth it!

The powder brush and the pointed foundation brush and the buffing brush make applying powder and foundation a DREAM! The buffing brush creates that flawless and non "cakey" look and its absolutely a dream to use. They fit comfortably between your fingers, not too thin, not too thick... and the colour is amazing too!
These are QUALITY brushes that are SO worth it!!!

Real Techniques Core Collection

The Real Techniques Core Collection is one of the best beauty purchases I have ever made, mostly just for the Buffing Brush and Contour Brush.

The Buffing Brush has taken my foundation game to new heights. I've used it with a couple of different liquid foundations and BB Creams and it gives all of these products a flawless finish on the skin, giving great coverage that is anything but cakey.

As for the Contour Brush, I don't actually use it to contour. I honestly prefer my cheap Cala contouring brush for those purposes. But it is AMAZING for powder highlighter and setting under-eye concealer with powder.

I'm not totally convinced that the Pointed Foundation Brush and Detailer Brush are as 'essential' as this kit claims. I mean, I do use them... The Pointed Foundation Brush works well for adding some extra foundation coverage to the under-eye area and the Detailer brush is perfect for applying eyeshadow to my bottom lash line.

However, I feel that I could have gotten more use out of a Stippling Brush and a Setting/Powder Brush with this collection. Hence my four-star rating for 'Effectiveness.' This will be my only gripe, as these brushes are high-quality and amazingly affordable.

I am a convert and will only buy Real Techniques brushes from now on! My heart is set on Starter Brush collection that consists of five eye brushes.

Keep an eye out for my review: I have high hopes that my future holds perfectly blended eyeshadow every time!

Real Techiques Core Collection

I got still online at a steal before the RAND took a nasty blow
I have been told it can be obtained here from selected foschini's however at a slightly higher price.

The quality is great and bristles are super soft, I cannot wait to get the eye shadow brushes when (if) the rand gets better

These has truly been a great investment I have ever made - I bought mine from Ebay because well SA rips us off pay so much for these are so much cheaper to ship in. I can't get enough of these I just love them!! They are $18 US but Takealot has them for R410. The set contains 4 face brushes my favorite is the buffer brush.

Real Techniques Core Collection

I bought these brushes and I am so pleased with them!
I wish I found them sooner!
After I'm done, my makeup looks flawless and I always feel like I'm being so professional Lol

They are definitely definitely so worth it!
Unfortunately they aren't available in South Africa
I bought mine from an online store in America called MyPrettyFacePlace.
Www.myprettyfaceplace.com
If you buy it alone, it works out to R250 including shipping. But you will most likely only receive your package after about a month, 2 weeks minimum

Unless you're willing to pay more for faster shipping.

The set contains a buffing brush, detailer brush, small pointed foundation brush and a contour brush.

All are made from synthetic bristles so they don't absorb any product.
They are all super soft and work so well
I use the buffing brush to apply my foundation
Detailer brush for concealer on pimples or spots
Pointed foundation brush for concealer under my eyes, sometimes for liquid foundation as well.
And the contour brush for bronzer and highlighter

I can't wait to buy more brushes from Real Techniques

If you decide to buy from MyPrettyFacePlace, please mention Fatima from South Africa referred you.
They also have a 15% sale at the moment

When I saw these brushes, I knew I had to have them. At R166 for 4 brushes plus a travel pouch, it is definitely worth it considering one Mac brush can be R400.

I will be sharing with you my first impressions and what each brush is about and will also tell you about their beautiful packaging. I will do individual reviews on each of the brushes.
The brushes that come in this set are

Detailer brush
Pointed foundation brush
Buffing brush
Contour brush

As you can see, these brushes are sort of your essential brushes that you would need. The brushes comes in a black pouch that has space for another 4 brushes and closes with a velcro clasp.

The pouch also folds over so that you can use it as a stand.
Its definitely a versatile product and something everyone needs in their makeup kit.
