I love my Real Techniques brushes, who doesn't, and I have built up a small collection now. I use several brushes daily but I have managed to narrow it down to my 5 favourite. These are in no particular order, I just use these the most and get along really well with them.
Firstly I have chosen the blush brush. I got this a while ago now and I can't remember how much it cost although I think it was £10.99. I have used this brush daily since I bought it and I really can't fault it. I love the pink handle and the matte feeling black at the bottom as usual. The head itself is really big but dense and great for control. The bristles are super soft and wash up really well!
Next I have chosen the buffing brush. This brush is from the core collection which my boyfriend bought me but I believe is £23.99 for 4 brushes. It was a toss up between my powder brush and this one but I have to say I use this more. I occasionally use this for foundation but usually I use it to apply my setting powder. It may seem like a strange brush for powder but it does a great job of buffing in my product and setting my base.
The contour brush is also from the core collection and was the selling point of the set for me. I use this with my sleek contour kit and it's just the perfect shape and size for contouring.
The next two brushes are both from the eye set. I got this as a gift from my parents and I think it is around £20.99 for 5 brushes. The first brush I have chosen is the deluxe crease brush. I have read a lot of bad reviews of this brush and I do understand why but I have totally grown to love it. As a crease brush this would be useless as it is so big. It is also not as soft as all the other brushes. What I love this for though is my brow bone highlight. I then use it to neaten up my eyeshadow by running it around my eye.
Lastly is the base shadow brush from the eye set. This is a perfect brush for applying your base colour to the whole lid. It's lovely and soft and perfect for getting into the crease as well.
This is sort of cheating as I did say this was a top 5! I would be lost without the real techniques sponge. I use this daily to apply my foundation and it gives the perfect finish. My sponge is stained as you can see but still in good condition after a good few weeks of use. This will definitely be a repurchase for me.
