Real Techniques Sculpting Set!


The fabulous Collectors Edition Real Techniques Sculpting Set has arrived after a cheeky superdrug order! There are three synthetic brushes in this set which are amazingly pretty with their limited edition pink metallic look to them.

With these sets you can normally pick up brushes that you wouldn't normally be able to buy on their own, in this set it has an exclusive cut brush in the fan brush as seen in the middle of the set. The sculpting brush is the main boss of this set as sculpting is what it's all about to get your defined contour. Then you get an added extra of the setting brush, which I do already have but its one of my most used Real Techniqes brushes so I'm really happy to have an extra.

This set cost £20.99 and is exclusive to Superdrug or the Real Techniques site at the moment, but as a Boots employee im really hoping they become available at our stores soon. 

Sculpting brush: this brush feature a thick dense wide angled head which aims to help create that defined contour on the face. The sculpting brush can be used with cream or powder formulations, making it a great versatile brush whether you want to mark out your contour on your face or under your jaw line or buff in your foundation.

Fan brush: the exclusive to the set is definately different from all the other brushes I own from Real techniques and is a fabulous addition. It's great for sweeping away unwanted fallout or excess makeup, but the shape of it allows for perfect precise application of your product. The fan brush is perfect for grabbing the tiniest amount of product to not over do it and sweep it down your nose for contour or highlighting. It can also be used to plot out your contour for the rest of your face with its great shape or is amazing for dusting highlight on areas of your face to create that lifted appearance like the cheek bones. This can also be used with cream and powder like most Real Techniques brushes.

Setting brush: this is one of my most versatile brushes with its small rounded head, all the Real Technique brushes you can you them for more than one purpose than what is stated on the brushes themselves. This setting brush is one of my favourites for multi purpose use, I use it for applying or setting my concealor, highlighting, contouring, even sweeping one colour eyeshadow over my lid. So I'm super happy to have a second setting brush to add to my collection. This brush easily takes all manor of makeup up whether it's cream concealor, thick setting powder, I'm yet to find any makeup product that this brush doesn't do well with.

So overall im so extremely happy with this purchase and the added benefits to my makeup brush collection, I do only use Real Techniqeus brushes so I am biased. But I would love to try Sigma or Zoeva! I think this core collection range is super high quality and a great price point for most makeup addicts. I would love to try more from the Bold Metals Real Techniques range but I would like to know if the extra money is worth it as they are rather more in price than this range. I do love the gold and rose gold colourings on the Bold Metals collection, I think they would look amazing stored on anyone's dressing table or makeup area.
