I’ve been hearing a fair amount of hype from beauty vloggers and friends about Real Techniques, so when I decided I needed to purchase some more eye makeup brushes (after expanding my use of eyeshadow that I mentioned here), I decided to give them a go.  For starters, this sponge is a total miracle dupe.  I’ve never been able to justify spending $20 on a sponge a la beauty blender, so I was amped to find this $6 dupe and it definitely did not disappoint!

The eye brushes (purple) were what I needed most so they were the first items I added to my cart.  I was not expecting any set of brushes under $20 to pick up eye shadow as well as they did, and as a result I put WAY too much on the first time I used them!  They’re super soft and apply makeup so easily.  I’ve heard some people that were less than thrilled with the results, but for the price I can’t imagine finding a more effective brush set!  Also, how can you argue with them when they come with their own travel case and stand?!

Because I was just so in love with the vibrant pink, I decided to scoop up this cheek and lip brush set as well.  Again I loved how soft and gentle the brushes were, and how well they picked up and held my powder makeup.

  1. Glad to have found your blog! I recently upgraded my makeup and realized I should probably upgrade my makeup brushes as well but they are soooo expensive and I’m not sure they are worth the money. I’m going to check out this company, thanks for the intro! xx Rox-Anne, Celebratingthislife.ca
