I'm a big fan of Real Techniques, but this holiday collection is beyond awesome.
Retailing at $30 for five brushes (3 exclusive) and a clutch, makes it a total steal.
The multi-tasking brush (exclusive) is so versatile; I've used it for foundation, powder and blush which is amazing. I enjoy throwing one brush into my makeup bag and using it for multiple purposes. It makes traveling a lot easier.
Even though I'm not the most keen with using a tapered brush like this for foundation, the tapered foundation brush (exclusive) applies foundation so beautifully it's well worth.
Quite possibly my favorite brush from the set is the angled highlighter brush because it gets the tops of my cheekbones and the high points of my brow. It's even more precise than the fan brush from Sephora.
When I use the base shadow brush (exclusive) I find that the shadow applies perfectly and there's less fall-out when I use it. I can also double up and use it as a fluffy brush.
The fine liner brush can be used for many things, but most commonly I use it as a lipstick applicator. It really makes applying lipstick a hundred times easier, and it applies a light first layer so you can work with the product incrementally.
The clutch is perfect to carry all of my brushes when I travel. Have you seen this holiday set yet? I think it would be a lovely stocking stuffer, especially for someone who enjoys makeup.
What's your favorite brush set?
