Real Techniques: Core Collection Review

Hello everyone, today I thought I would review my Real Techniques core collection. I mentioned my new real techniques brushes in my resent boots haul (which you can click here to read) and said that I would do a review on both the core collection and the starter set. I thought I would start off with the core collection today and the other review will be up tomorrow. 

So far I have been loving using this set of brushes. They are so easy to use and are so soft on your skin. When you apply foundation they leave no streaks and create a totally even and natural looking coverage. 

They also come with a free panoramic case that you can use to keep your brushes safe and can also be used as a stand. It also has space for other brushes.

I also love that Sam Chapman has done online tutorials on how to use the brushes in different ways in step-by-step tutorials (click here to see them)

All the brushes are made for doing a certain part of your makeup but are also sometimes great for others.

Buffing Brush:
I have found the buffing brush perfect for applying powder aswell as to apply foundation and for going over my bronzer and blusher so it looks more natural. 

Contour Brush:
The contour brush is also great for applying foundation but I have found is best for applying bronzer and blusher. 

Pointed foundation Brush:
This brush is great for around the nose and eyes for blending in both concealer and foundation. 

Detailer Brush:
I have found the detailer brush great for tackling any spots and also for blending in the foundation around my inner eye area. It is also really useful for defining your lips. 

I would highly recommend this product to and one who wants a floorless makeup look that is easy to create. 

I hope I have given you a further in-site on the Core Collection brushes. 

Have you tried them or written a review on them? Let me know in the comments.


  1. You're really good at taking pictures... just thought I'd mention that. xD

    If you have time I would love if you could look at my blog and maybe even follow it.

    1. Awe, thank you. I will go and have a look x

  2. great post! I'm following you. I really hope you to the same!

  3. I love the two bigger brushes in this collection. LOVE the buffing brush for foundation and the contour brush for applying highlight. Have you tried their duo fiber brushes??? I've been debating buying. Heard mixed reviews about them. :/

    Hope you get a chance and check out my blog. It's all about beauty, life and DIY. If you ever have a fun Look/outfit of the day, or a fashion related DIY be sure to share at my "That's my Style" Link party on Fridays! :)
