The Real Techniques Core Collection...

I know there's so many reviews of the Real Techniques brushes floating around beauty blog land, but I thought that I'd have my say. The Real Techniques brushes are all 100% cruelty free and made from Taklon bristles which are super soft allowing for flawless makeup application. The Real Techniques Core Collection consists of four brushes for creating the perfect base to your makeup, the Contour Brush, Pointed Foundation Brush, Detailer Brush and the Buffing Brush. I am so impressed with this line of brushes, but the one stand-out brush has to be the Buffing Brush. 
This brush has revolutionised the way my foundation is applied and how it looks. I feel that this brush just makes my foundation, whatever it is, look so much better on the skin and so much more flawless than ones I've tried before. It feels so soft to use on the skin and the density of the bristles makes blending effortless. It's odd, but I've found myself spending longer on my foundation, especially blending to ensure that it looks as seamless as possible. 
The other brushes are nice too, I use the contour brush for highlighter, it gives such a lovely effect as it buffs as you apply it, making the highlighter look really natural. I've been using the foundation brush to blend in concealer and the detailer brush to conceal around the lips if I'm wearing a bold lip colour, to enhance the colour and correct any mistakes. 
All of the brushes wash well, dry quickly and do not lose their shape. For the £21.99 price tag, these brushes are amazing and rival high end ones. I'm definitely picking up the Starter Set next! 

Do you own any Real Techniques brushes?
Much Love,
