Real Techniques Brushes

A few of you may have heard of these brushes already, they have been created by make-up artist Samantha Chapman from Pixiwoo on youtube. I love watching their videos and was excited when she came out with her own brushes. For a while they were only available online but they are now available at Boots in the UK and there is an online store for America.
The Core Collection was the first thing I really wanted. I love my sigma brushes but i'm still on the hunt for some great face brushes. I love how these brushes look and the case they come in can be used as a stand as well as a holder for travel.
The set comes with a Detail Burhs, Pointed Foundation Brush, Buffing Brush and Contour Brush and it retails for £21.99. I think this is a good price for quality brushes. I've used them all and the work very well.
The other brushes I decided to get was the Stippling Brush which retails for £11.99.
This like the other brushes is smaller than a normal face brush (Sigma) but fits in the hand nicely and the bristles are dense making it perfect for buffing in foundation, I use it with my BB Cream also and it works great.
The bristles on all the brushes are so soft and didn't shed at all even on their first use. Another thing I love about the Core Collection set is that there is space for other brushes.
I love these brushes and can't get over how good the quality is. I feel Sam has taken all the good things about other make-up brushes and put them into one! There is also a set of Eye brushes which have purple handles which I might try in the future. I already have my eye on the Shading Brush. For the other brushes available you can check them on the Boots website here.


  1. We are probably nowhere near getting these brushes in Australia, so I'm desperately searching the net trying to find them! I want some soooo badly!
