Review // Real Techniques Collector's Edition Sculpting Set.

Hi all -

I had planned this post out weeks ago but found myself being lazy with uploading the photos for it,forgive me for it's slowness! I realize this isn't as new and exciting now though I still love these brushes to death!

Personally,I'm a massive fan of Real Techniques as a brand,every brush I have from the Pixiwoo Sisters' brand is both unique and well-balanced. This Collectors Edition is no different. I'm in love with the metallic pink handles,and the comfort of having the black silicone on the end of each brush (Also a great help in preventing scratches on the bottom of the handles). All three brushes feel weighted but not too heavy on the hand. 

There are three different 'styles' of brush in this pack
  • Sculpting Brush
  • Fan Brush
  • Setting Brush

The brushes all feature similar bristles to the original synthetic line,which are soft,and easy to wash and dry. 

The Fan Brush is more likened to the Duo-Fiber collection bristles,that RT released a few years back. This makes it perfect for powder applications of all types. I'd say it was definitely better for highlighter and face powder than blush or contour,since it lacks preciseness due to the way the bristles sit. The Sculpting brush was better for contour and blush,contrary to it's sister brush,and was also excellent for liquid and powder foundation. The Setting Brush is a match made it heaven for under-eye powder and accurate blush application (with a darker shade,for example). It's easy to get colour exactly where you want it. 

As a whole,I'm loving this Collectors Edition of brushes from Real Techniques. I believe they're still readily available from most beauty retailers (Superdrug,Boots etc). I bought mine for around £20.99.

Do you have this set? Do you love it?
