I purchased this brush set (together with others) from iHerb.com for 17.99 $ which is a great deal, comparing with the European pricing.
The Real Techniques Core Collection comes with 4 brushes : contour brush, pointed foundation brush, detailer brush and buffing brush. All this brushes have super soft synthetic bristles and didn't shed at all.
The contour brush is a dome shaped brush, perfect for applying bronzer under your cheek bones or highlighter or even blush. I also use it sometimes for powdering my under eye concealer.
The pointed foundation brush is my least favorite brush from this set, unfortunately. I use it sometimes(when my concealer brushes are dirty) for blending out the concealer under my eyes. Usually, when I don't like a foundation brush I use it for applying face masks, but unfortunately, this is to small for that purpose.
When I received the set I thought I won't get any use from the detailer brush and that it will be my least favorite, but things are not like that: once I tried it for lips I fell in love. This brush makes an excellent lip brush and I use it every time when I use lipstick.
In addition, all this brushes clean super easy and dry relatively fast. For the price I paid, I think they are a great investment!
You also receive a brush case which at the beginning I considered useless, but when I needed to travel with a lot of brushes, it came in very handy!
Your can purchase this set here and if you use the code JQP390 you get 5$ of on your first order on iHerb if the total is under 40$ and 10$ off if your order is higher that 40$.
Did you try the Real Techniques Brushes? Which is your favorite?
