I’ve been a daily user of several Real Techniques face brushes for years, so their eye makeup brushes were an obvious choice when I decided to try something new. And they were purple, who wouldn’t want that! Well, I didn’t buy the them just for their color, but because I wanted a set and this one basically includes every single brush you need. The Real Techniques starter set for eyes consists of the following five brushes: deluxe crease brush, base shadow brush, accent brush, fine liner brush, and brow brush.
So far I’ve tried three of them, both base shadow and crease brush as well as the accent brush. My first impressions are just like I imagined them to be: they are soft, precise and efficient. They complement my current eye shadow brush collection nicely and I really enjoy using the deluxe crease brush, it is much easier to blend everything together and create a smoky eye look now! And the accent brush is great for applying a highlighting eye shadow in the inner corner of my eyes and blending the eye pencil out.
The set also comes in a white panoramic case that is useful for travelling. The case is not the nicest I’ve seen in my life, but it serves its purpose. The right inner part has enough space for five brushes and the left side has two bigger compartments that can be used for storing two additional brushes. I find this amazing, because I can easily add two of my favorite face brushes, the blush and the expert face brush.
However, I have yet to try the fine line brush and the brow brush, first I have to buy a new gel eyeliner and a brow pomade, ha! We always find a way to buy new things, don’t we? :)
