I have been wanting to purchase the Real Techniques brushes for sometime but wanted to purchase all of them at the same time as Ulta frequently has buy one get one half off deals for these brushes. However they would almost always be sold out of ones I wanted to try. SO, as soon as I saw that they were having another special I snagged all the ones I've had on my wish list! The deal is going on now and if you purchase over $60 they usually (if always...) have a $10 off coupon. I got everything below including the clear mascara for roughly $50 with California sales tax!
These brushes are AMAZING in quality and of the ones I have used, have done superbly in their descriptions as brushes. Several can be used multiple ways as well. They are OUTSTANDING and by far my favorite make up brushes purchase (both in regards to high end and drug store)
|From Left to right: Core Collection, Stippling brush, Blush brush, Expert Face brush, Setting brush, and Starter Kit|
|Comparison of the Expert Face and Buffing with the Expert Face much more denser|
|Difference in the ends of the handles with the Expert Face being easily able to stand on it's own|
Another thing to note, in regards to the handles, at first I thought the ones where the handles bowed out at the end allowing it to stand on it's own were going to annoy me. They have not and at times I rather find it convenient. Definitely recommend these brushes to those either starting to dabble in make up or those who already have an ever expanding collection. You won't regret it!
