Real Techniques Core Collection

For those of you who have read my latest wishlist, this was the item that I wanted the most! I have wanted to try a Real Techniques brush for a long time but the price has always put me off. I decided that the Core Collection would be a good place to start as you get four brushes and I really wanted the contour brush in particular. Yesterday I was a very lucky girl because my lovely, gorgeous, super kind boyfriend bought me the set! I have used these this morning so here are my first impressions!

Although £21.99 does seem a lot to spend on brushes; this set contains four brushes and a case/stand. When I think of how much I have spent on cheap brushes that turned out to be useless, I should have just bought this straight away!

The brushes are really good quality. The handles feel really sturdy and the bristles are super smooth and tightly bound. I love that each brush has its name printed on  the handle.
The case can be folded over to close and protect the brushes or it can be bent back to make a stand. I am going to keep mine in the standing position because it's really handy when applying my makeup.
There are four brushes in this set and I used three of them when doing my makeup this morning. I used the buffing brush for applying my powder, the contour brush for my bronzer and the pointed foundation brush for my highlighter. I realise the latter might seem an odd choice but I never use a brush for foundation and this is a great size for around the eyes.
I haven't used the detailer brush yet but will most likely use it for concealer.

I can't believe how great these are and what a difference they make to application. They are really easy to manoeuvre and keep makeup application really neat. A bit thank you to my boyfriend and maybe I can talk him into getting me the eye set next! :)

Do you have these brushes? Let me know what you think!

Don't forget to follow :)
