Real Techniques brushes:pure geniousness!

Hello there!Long time no see,right?!Ha!I know,I know...I just can't get around to writing...or doing anything really!
Anyhow today I have an exciting article for you and it's about the Real Techniques brushes!You must have seen a zillion reviews and videos on YouTube but as I was so impressed with them and kept using them religiosly,I had to share my thoughts and experience.

I have the Expert face brush which is the golden handle one.It is meant for liquid foundation and powder.I find it works exceptionally with my liquid foundations(I wanted to say all,but I stopped myself because there are exceptions-like foundation that just works best when applying with hands,no brushes whatsoever because of its texture..but for all other foundations,around 90 %- it will work brilliantly!)

Now here's how it's described on their official website:
Ultra firm and broad for application and blending of cream or liquid foundation:
  • look pixel-perfect even in harsh light
  • ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and
    100% cruelty-free
  • self-standing for easy storage
  • extended aluminum handle is light and easy to use
I just couldn't agree more with these claims.The brush is ultraaaaa soft so you'll find yourself touching your face with brush all the time,that's what I did anyways(sounds kinda creepy now that I read it...haha).This brush,like I said earlier applies liquid foundation wonderfully,glides like a dream,distributes just the right amount of product,makes anything look flawless and seamless and offers you a beautiful buildable pixel perfect coverage.But that isn't everything my lovelies!It works heavenly with cream blush and bronzer but I like using it with powder ones too,for contouring-it's perfect for getting in hollows of your cheeks,or making them if u don't have them like me!It is small,sturdy,really handy,easy to work with and A M A Z I N G quality.No fall outs whatsoever!And lets be honest-you CAN'T beat the price. :DD

they are soo photogenic :)hahaha

Now onto the Starter Set:
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 application
    • brow brush: distinctive shape easily defines eyebrows
    • panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + stand
  • look pixel-perfect even in harsh light
  • ultra-plush, synthetic taklon bristles are hand-cut and 100% cruelty-free
  • extended aluminum handles are light and easy to use

These have purple handles and you also get a brush case/stand which I found extremely handy since I didn't have one.Magical quality,softness and all that jazz..I didn't like the eyeliner brush because it is not firm as it's supposed to be for dipping in and precisely applying gel eyeliner and creating flicks.So you can just forget about that.You could use it for applying lipstick as a lip pencil but nothing impressive..just okey..However I adore other four brushes.Deluxe crease brush,my personal fave works for me as a crease brush,applying color all over the lid,blending colors,applying concealer on any spots,blending concealer under eyes and contouring my nose.This one is a STEAL!Real multi-tasker.Another amazing one would have to be base shadow brush-applies nicely eyeshadow all over the lid,but I found out just recently how well it works for applying color in the crease with the wider side and then by turning it,for blending everything in.Accent brush is superb for creating the v shape in outer corners of  eyes,applying and smudging shadow under bottom lashes.I use it also when I need precise,fine covering of blemishes and for applying lipstick more naturally-for achieving a more natural coverage and precision also.Brow brush is good but it is also as the eyeliner brush not sturdy enough for precise application and desired crisp brow definition.It is great for just filling in any gaps and you can always make whole appearance of the brows sleeker and neater with a bit of concealer.
Overall great deal for the money-all in one eyes starter kit,though you might reconsider buying another eyeliner brush..

Thanks so much for reading my blog
Hope to see u soon!

    Imam malu preporuku za blog, a to je da stavis da ti tema bude obicna, ovako je sve malo kofuzno i da stavis GFC(Google Friend Connect) da ljudi mogu da te prate. I da sklonis verifikaciju komentara posto ce ljudima biti naporno da komentarisu ako svaki put budu morali da unose brojeve i slova :)
