What did we do before Real Techniques?

Just taking a moment here to appreciate Real Techniques. Sam, Nic... big up ya bad selves! I own a lot of RT brushes, use at least one (okay five) every day but for some reason, haven't given them the air time they deserve. What did we do before Real Techniques? At that price point any price point, you'll be hard pushed to find a better brush brand. The quality, design, results... they're faultless. Who doesn't have an RT in their stash?

If there's one area not quite serviced in my brush stash, it's a highlighting brush. I tend to either use a blush brush or my Real Techniques Contour Brush, but if I've just been contouring with it, it can look a bit muddy... and a muddy highlight is no highlight at all! So my plan was to get the RT Setting brush £5.49 and make it a designated highlight brush, but this week Superdrug were flogging the three piece sculpting set, which includes the setting brush plus two bonus brushes, for just £12.99 (normally £20.99). The set contains;

The Sculpting Brush - The softness of this brush, you have to feel it to believe it! Medium sized brush head cut to an angle that perfect fits into the contours of the face. Soft but firm bristles that can be used for both liquid and powder contouring.

The Fan Brush - a super soft, small fan brush that softly sweeps on powders and whisks away any excess makeup for an even finish.

The Setting Brush- small and perfectly domed - perfect for a controlled dusting of powder or highlighter.

Like i said, what did we do before Real Techniques? Oh yeah, I remember... we applied badly. This set contains everything you need to effortlessly and seamlessly highlight and contour. Ultra high quality synthetic (cruelty free) bristles for pixel perfect results every time. Chapman sisters, I WORSHIP YOU!

Sadly the shamazing Superdrug offer has expired but you can pick the same set up on eBay for £13.95.

  4. Completely agree with the title of this post! Their brushes are absolutely incredible, I cringe now at how much I spent per brush at MAC when I could have got the same quality brush for much cheaper!

    1. Me too! I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on MAC brushes before these lovelies came out! I think the quality of RT brushes possibly surpasses MAC x

  5. I have had my eye on these for weeks now. I just love the look of the sculpting brush x

  6. I NEED THIS! The sculpting brush looks amazing!

  7. Haha not sure what I used before RT brushes. I love their brushes, they never disappoint me. I have the sculpting brush from this set and I use it for cream contour but also for foundation.
