| Real Technique Dupes | Review

It's not just about having the right make up these days. If you don't have the right tools to apply it, then sometimes you are not getting the best result, be it from your foundation, down to your eyebrows!

I wanted to share my find on ebay in the hopes to help save a few pennies for anyone on the hunt for some good brushes and encourage any new ( or even old ) make up lovers to get some good brushes. I know when I first started getting into make up I got a brush set from amazon and I STILL have brushes from then because they were great. You don't need to spend a fortune on a brush for it to be good, but its important to not use your fingers for everything :P

Here are 4 brushes I purchased for £1.79 per brush + P&P (link)
The only bad thing is I had to wait a month but for the price, I didn't mind!





from top picture Pink brush 4 brush 2  Blue brush 1 brush 4 

Ebay doesn't actually list the brushes but they are numbered and you can get a good idea of the brush by the pictures. I just opted for these 4 but there are more. The 3 Real Technique brushes I already have are in the same  pink colour and I got 2 in this gorgeous baby blue colour also. I got 2 flat brushes, (brush 4) They are both quite firm and dense and it reminds me of the sigma F80 brush and I'm using my blue one for my foundation and it works it on like a dream! I got 2 as I have a Mac foundation that's several shades darker from last year when I had a tan but it's currently too dark for me so I wanted a different brush for that.

The other 2 brushes are more rounded face brushes. The blue round brush (brush 1) Is alot firmer and I'm actually using that to contour at the moment and loving that to help define cheekbones, And then the pink round brush (brush 2) I'm using for blush.

In regards to quality, these brushes are super soft and just like the Real Techniques brushes, they are made from synthetic fibres and are cruelty free. The only thing that let it down for me really was the time it took to arrive but when ordering from Japan, China or any place like that, its sort of expected.

Brush - I love the brushes I got, not to mention the 2 that are that gorgeous blue colour. The bristles are soft and haven't shed and they were a great value for money.
Comments - I've only 4 starred this as I was gutted they had to take so long, otherwise they would of got a 5 star. Love everything about them!
