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.
