I know I say this often but I really can’t believe how quickly time is going this year! It’s been such a long time since I have put up a post so I wanted to get back into the swing of things, and I thought it was a good idea to start off with these new brushes of mine. How beautiful are they?!!
I saw this set a while ago on the Boots website, but it was £64! Which is rather expensive, especially for a brand like real techniques which is usually really affordable. Around Christmas time they actually went down in the sale… Half price. But at the time I was all spent out and really couldn’t warrant spending any more money on myself. Then payday came back around and this brush set came up again, and they were half price still. But as soon as I had decided that I was going to buy them, they went out of stock everywhere. Typical!
So I left it and kept telling myself how ‘I didn’t really want them’ and ‘it was only because they were half price that I was going to purchase them’ etc… (secretly a tiny bit hearbroken)
And THEN! Once again they popped up on the boots website, for me to see that they were now £25. Before I knew it they were in my basket, paid for and delivered to my work.
I can’t tell you how happy I am with this bargain, and I feel like it was meant to be! So not only did I make a great saving, the brushes themselves really are a great quality. You can feel just by holding them that they are made well as they have a weight to them. They feel really sturdy and they are soooo soft on my skin!
200 Oval Shadow
This brush is pretty much the perfect size for applying a base eyeshadow. It has a lovely shape to it, and it’s just so soft that it really helps blend in the shadow for a super natural look. The price of this brush alone is £15.00
103 Angled Powder
My favourite out of the three, without a doubt. It actually make me wonder why I was so long without it in my life. This is probably the best brush for a natural contour, as it seamlessly blends and is really great for contouring. I could be wrong but I don’t think this particular brush is available to purchase on it’s own for some reason, I have a feeling its a limited edition. However I guess it’s most similar to the 100 Arched Powder brush, which is £25.00.
300 Tapered Blush
The special tapered shape to to this brush makes it so good for a spot of blush, but what I sometimes like to use it for is highlight. Although it appears wide, it’s got a neat little edge to it- making it easy to apply. The price of this brush alone is £24.00.
The brushes also came with a cute little Real Techniques bag! So I’m loving this set and I do feel as though they were worth paying a bit more for, than the regular RT prices. I wouldn’t say I would splurge out £64 for the set, but 100% worth £25!
