Real Techniques Core Collection

Hello bandwagon I believe we have met before. Yes, I jumped on it and finally got the Real Techniques Core Collection. Better late than never, right? I know, I know, you are probably sick to death of 'Real Techniques' Brush reviews that are floating around. But I thought I'd share my opinion on these brilliant brushes.

These brushes are designed by make-up artist, beauty blogger and YouTuber - Samantha Chapman, one half of the Pixiwoo sisters. Samantha worked with creators of EcoTools to create an affordable brush range and she has most definitely been successful with that mission. All of the brushes are 100% cruelty free and because the bristles are made of synthetic material (Taklon) - it means that they won't soak up or absorb any of your product and lead to wastage which some other brushes do. 

There are three different ranges of Real Techniques brushes, all of which are separately colour-coded by the colour of their handle: yellow (your base/flawless), pink (your finish/perfected) and purple (your eyes/enhanced) "Each brush is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish."   

The Core Collection set contains four brushes a contour brush, buffing brush, pointed foundation brush and a detailer brush. Packaged in a clear plastic box with a black travel-case that you can use as a stand to store your brushes. This is a brilliant idea for travelling. The brushes themselves are of excellent quality, they are incredibly soft and don't shed. I have gotten the most use out of the buffing brush, which I use to apply my foundation. I always used to use my hands to apply foundation as it was just easier but I have noticed a lot of difference using this particular brush. I believe it gives flawless coverage and makes applying foundation a dream. The handles are incredibly light which makes them easier to work with.

For twenty quid you're probably thinking that's crazy, but it's definitely an excellent value as you are getting four high quality brushes, that are £5.25 each! 

Have you tried the Core Collection (any other set)? What's your favourite brush? 


  1. I love the eye brushes too! My favourite brush is probably the stippling brush though, I use that to apply my foundation :)

  2. Aw I love all of the real technique brushes but the buffing brush is probably my favourite!
