Today's post is a special one because it includes an International Giveaway for this gorgeous Limited Edition set of brushes from one of my favourite brands, Real Techniques. Read on for a full review and details of how you can enter!
When I was cleaning some of my makeup brushes the other day, I realised that more than half of my brush collection comes from Real Techniques. You just can't beat them for the price, quality and extensive range that they have on offer - I don't know how they do it, but they have got it nailed!
Their latest Limited Edition Cheek & Lip Set* is a must have for beauty fans; it includes a Cheek Brush, a Duo-Fiber Contour Brush and a full-size Lip Brush. These brushes, like the rest of the range from Real Techniques, are super soft and are made from cruelty-free synthetic bristles.
Real Techniques Cheek Brush
Although this is named a Cheek Brush, you can just as easily use it for applying foundation and any other base product as it's a great shape for doing all manners of buffing and blending. The UltraPlush bristles are soft and densely packed, with the rounded head picking up just the right amount of product and distributing it effortlessly. I love using this with powder blushers, but it works just as well with creams and liquids too.
Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Contour Brush
I don't own many duo-fiber brushes, but I really like the shape of this one as the white bristles pick up a tiny amount of product and the black bristles further down, then blend it so you don't get any harsh, tell tale lines - it virtually does the job for you! If you're new to contouring or just worried about piling on too much product, this is the brush for you. Again, the bristles are soft, flexible and this brush works well with liquid, cream and powder products.
Real Techniques Lip Brush
Every make-up junkie should own a good quality lip brush and this is definitely one of the good ones on the market. It has a very firm, small, tapered head which is just perfect for working with the contours of your lips for a very precise and polished finish. I particularly like using it with darker or red lipsticks as it stops things from looking messy!
I have one of these awesome sets to giveaway to a lucky reader. All you need to do is enter some info into the Rafflecopter below and that's it. Giveaway is open internationally and will end on 23/04/2016. The winner will be contacted via email and Twitter - good luck!
