Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Set

I’ve been a huge fan of Real Techniques for years now. Probably since the brand started. If you are in the beauty industry its hard to now to have seen or heard of the gorgeous Pixiwoo girls, Sam and Nic. I wanted to share my thoughts today on their Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Set and why I feel its worth investing in their products.

Here is some information on the Everyday Essentials Set…

I have many make up brushes, I think if you are a make up junkie its probably one of the things you have the most of. My brushes are used every day, sometimes twice a day and cleaned weekly. In my collection I have around 20 Real Techniques brushes (A fair few doubles). I also have Sigma, MAC, Urban Decay and some others you may have heard of. Of all my brushes though the Real Techniques ones are those that have lasted the longest and look in the best condition. I didn’t really need anymore brushes if I’m honest, but when I saw the Everyday Essentials Set on offer in Boots at half price, I felt it was stupid not to get them!

The Everyday Essentials Kit contains a little of everything like you’d expect. I already own 2 of the brushes in the set (It never hurts to have spares!) and a collection of sponges but felt the value of the set was still worth it just for the 2 brushes I didn’t own. Each brush is made to a high quality, I find shedding is NON EXISTENT with the Real Techniques brushes (Or has been in my experience). I’ve got brushes from the original core collection which I reviewed back in 2012! Thats 6 years ago! They are still great brushes which I use daily. When you have something that long that still works for you, then it has to be great quality right? Yes my handles are a little battered now, but the brushes still hold their shape and feel soft.

Another thing I love about the brushes from Real Technique is their softness. The synthetic bristles are very soft. They also wash up lovely as well and hold their shape when drying. I find when I am cleaning my brushes they take probably 6 hours to dry but I tend to do mine mid morning and then use them the following day.

Over all I think the Everyday Essentials Set from Real Techniques was a steal at under £10. I love the brushes in the set and am really pleased I finally own the Setting and Blush brushes at last. I’d have happily paid £10 for those! When buying a quality product I do not mind spending more, but these brushes are so reasonably priced I think you are getting a complete bargain. I highly recommend them and if these last 6 years like my oldest ones I will not be complaining.

The Everyday Essential Brush Set from Real Techniques is available at Boots and other retail stores. It is now back to its full price of £19.99 but currently on offer for 3 for 2!
