Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup Brushes

The Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup Brushes!

Real Techniques Core Collection Makeup Brushes were designed by Sam Chapman, a Mom, makeup artist, blogger, and sister of Nic (Pixiwoo). This is the second Collection that I have purchased. The previous Collection reviewed: your eyes/enhanced, Starter Set. I also purchased one brush that was not part of a kit, and I’ll review that in another post.

The mission of Real Techniques: “high-tech brushes and industry-quality makeup tutorials make you the expert.”

Sam promises that by using the brushes in the Core Collection, your foundation will be “flawless.” Read on to find out my thoughts.

When you take the Real Techniques Core Collection out of the box, you will see the plastic (form) that keeps each brush safe during shipment and before use. (You can click on the photo for a closer look).

Real Techniques Brushes

The Core Collection has four brushes, all of which are incredibly soft Taklon bristles. These bristles are synthetic, making them cruelty free. They also all have aluminum handles, which makes them incredibly lightweight. For those starting a makeup brush collection, I think it’s a great idea to have the brush names on each one. I have had the brushes for over two months now, and I have not had any shedding after washing; plus, they go right back to to their nice fluffy shape.

Real Techniques Case

The Core Collection’s panoramic case, a carrier/stand, makes it  easy to set up your brushes, and to take them with you when you travel. There is a velcro closure on the case, which is great to keep all the brushes safely securely.

A toggle allows for this to be used/positioned as a panoramic brush case.

Closer look at each of the Real Techniques Brushes 

detailer brush: precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition

buffing brush: ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation

 

The Real Techniques Contour Brush:

The contour brush is used to, obviously, contour;  can be used to create a sheer finish. You can the contour brush use this to apply highlighter and bronzer.

 

The Real Techniques Foundation Brush is, as you can see below, pointed.

Due to the pointed tip, it can easily be used exactly where you want to apply your foundation, or your tinted moisturizer.  You can get the brush into those areas that you don’t want to overload with foundation, such as around the nose, under the eyes, etc.

The Detailer Brush is a great size:  Real Techniques Makeup Brush

Because you should only use concealer where you need it, you want a small brush, with the right shape, to help you accomplish this task.  Sam has reminded us in her videos that when you use this, you need to push the brush—in other words, do not drag the brush. That’s how you get more coverage. Do you need to add concealer under your eyes, or around your nose where you have some redness? Bonus of this is that the Detailer Brush can also be used as a lipstick brush!

The last of the four brushes is the Buffing Brush:

This brush can be used for mineral foundation, if you have a creme to powder foundation, to apply bronzer, highlighter, and to apply blusher. Finally, this brush has the perfect shape to set your concealer and foundation (with loose powder or pressed powder so you do not have any shine on your face.)

I believe that this The Real Techniques Core Collection does succeed in having your foundation flawless, and I am glad that I purchased it.

  6. I LOVE this set. I have it too, and I think it’s a great value for the money. The buffing brush is particularly great for buffing in foundation. I use the flat foundation brush to apply my cream highlight. I’m a big Samantha Chapman fan, so I love that she has her own brush collection. I use the blush brush for foundation application sometimes as well.
