I would go so far to say I adore makeup brushes. As much as I love new makeup releases, there is something about new brushes that make me so excited. I love the different colours, shapes, sizes and how they can change your whole makeup application. The sculpting set is one of those game changers in makeup and the fan brush made me intrigued to see how it could change my highlighting game.

I was lucky enough to see the Superdrug offer on last month which brought this set down from £20.99 to £13.99 and picked it up as soon as I saw it. I already have a lot of RT brushes - the Core Collection, the Starter Set, the individual setting brush (before another was put into this pack), Nic's Picks, blush brush and the 300 Tapered Brush from the Bold Metals collection. Don't get me wrong, I do own brushes from both Nanshy and Makeup Revolution too and love them equally as much, but there is something about Real Techniques that makes them shine.

This set contains an individual setting brush to set makeup and complete your look, a fan brush to sweep on powder (I use it for highlighters) and a sculpting brush for a more 'defined contours'. I already have a contouring brush from Nic's Picks but think since this has the added angle to it, the Sculpting Brush is worth the money I spent anyway, with the other two brushes seeming more like a bonus.

Aside from the amazing quality of the Real Technique's brushes, they aren't half pretty! I love the shiny pink in comparison to some of the more matte orange and purple brushes from the starter and core kits. I don't have any fallout of bristles, they was really, really well and they are soft on the skin. For a girl with sensitive skin I welcome soft brushes with open arms. In the future I'd love to get my hands on the 201 Pointed Crease Brush as I think it would be a dream to work with for creating amazing eyeshadow looks. 

Overall, I love these brushes just as much as my others. The Sculpting Brush gets more use over the others since I contour every time I apply my makeup as I have a circular shaped face so giving myself some cheekbones makes me feel more confident. 

Do you own any Real Techniques brushes?
