Real Techniques is a brand that has been raved about for years by every beauty blogger under the sun and with good reason! I purchased the Real Techniques Core Collection ($18.99) a couple months ago and I’ve been using the brushes nearly every day. I’ve shared my love for the Buffing Brush before (it’s still my most used brush, fyi) and the other two brushes that come in the kit are of equal quality. The Buffing Brush applies foundation absolutely flawlessly, leaving me poreless and glowing. The Pointed Foundation Brush works perfectly for applying powder under the eyes and on any blemishes because of the pointed tip. The bristles are rather small and although I don’t use it for foundation, it works fine with concealer and powder! The Contour Brush is the second of my most used RT brushes. Because of the dome shape, it fits right on the apples of my cheeks. It applies blush very easily and blends well. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the Real Techniques Core Collection and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for affordable makeup brushes!
