I love the Real Techniques brushes but lets face it, everyone only buys the core collection for the buffing brush, possibly the contour brush, but no one wants to pay £21.99 for basically one brush.
Don't fret, eBays got it covered. Brushes 1 and 2 in the post are basically dupes for the stippling brush and the buffing brush and work just as well, they wash amazingly, theres no fall out and they are only like £2! I've mentioned these brushes before on an eBay wishlist, and I still stand by what I said, I LOVE these! The only downside is they come from China so take like 6 weeks come, so I usually order a few at one time.
After such a good experience with these brushes I decided to order some more foundation brushes and some eye brushes. The eye brushes are amazing! The eyeliner brush can get a few bristles bent out after a while but for less that £1 you can't really complain. I ordered a few and use them for gel eyeliner, smudging eyeliner and if i run eye shadow threw my brows. AMAZING. I've not has chance to use my blending eye shadow brush yet, but it feels such nice quality so I think it will be fine.
Brushes 3 and 4, I intended on using as base brushes but they definitely weren't what I expected. Brush 3 is super dense and so doesn't really move to fit the face when i'm buffing my foundation in but its super good for stippling on blusher/bronzer if you just want it in one place. Brush 4 however is rubbish, i don't know what i'm going to use it for, it feels super synthetic, don't get it.
All in all I love eBay brushes and will continue to buy them.
Sorry for the lack of outfit posts recently, i'm attempting to write a dissertation and its ruining my life.
