I was debating whether I should buy the Real Techniques or the Sigma synthetic kabuki set. In the end I went for the Real Techniques because they are more affordable to me. Here is the catch, they are more affordable if you purchase them online than buying them from Priceline if you live in Australia. I brought mine from iHerb.com which sell them for there retail price. Plus shipping is not that crazy compared to other online sites that ship to Australia. Plus if you use this coupon code HCD934 you get $10 off your first order of $40 or more, if you spend less than $40 than you get $5. I think that is a good deal. I brought nearly all the brushes but I will be reviewing them separately.
|Real Techniques - your base/flawless core collection|
iHerb.com Price: $17.99
Priceline's Price: $44.99
Made in: ChinaThese brushes are made with 'ultra smooth' taklon bristles. They are just so so soft, no scratchy feeling at all, you can really tell that they are good quality. I have had them for about two months and washed them about six times I haven't had any issues with shedding or dye bleeding. I also found that these brushes dry super fast.
Contour Brush: delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish.
Pointed Foundation Brush: use with liquid foundation to build custom coverage.
Detailer Brush: precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition.
These brushes are really great value for money and I highly recommend them for any one who is starting out with make up or is on a budget.
