Real Techniques Core collection

Real Techniques Core collection

*Today I’m going to review Real Techniques Core Collection * brushes.

Everyone on the web is talking about these brushes, Real Techniques*, the brush range created by and .

Real Tecnhiques* brushes are all in synthetic bristles (very soft indeed) and quite cheap, since a set is average £20. They come in set, as I said, or in single brushes but you can’t find the brushes in sets as singles. You can buy them in a lot of UK e-shops. I bought mine on Feelunique*, with no shipping charges and you can often use discount codes.

I chose Core collection set, as I needed some basic base brushes. In this set you’ll find:

  • Buffing Brush
  • Contour Brush
  • Pointed Foundation Brush
  • Detailer Brush


Real Techniques Core collection


I’m really, really happy with these brushes.  They are all extremely soft, quite like Everyday Minerals brushes which are the softest brushes on this planet. They’re still perfect after very often cleansing and they dry super quickly.

The brushes I love the most are the Buffing Brush and the Contour Brush, I think they’re worth the whole set. I use Buffing Brush for applying foundation and it is my favourite one: it blends perfectly and delivers good coverage without strikes. I love Contour Brush also, I use it for applying highlighter but you can use it for blush, bronzer, contour produtcs and blending all edges. I have to say I don’t use the other brushes at all: Pointed Foundation Brush is too small for foundation and I prefer a blending brush for concealer; Detailer Brush is perfect for inner corners of your eyes but I simply prefer using other brushes…

Now I’m curious to try some single brushes, such as Expert Face Brush, Blush Brush and Setting Brush, I want them all!

What do you think about Core collection?



  1. il contur brush è favoloso,secondo me il miglior pennello del set. Il Buffing è molto amato e non mi dispiace affatto,però ho toccato roba più coccolosa(i sigma per esempio sono davvero super-morbidi). Prenderò sicuramente altri pennelli Real Tecniques perchè amo l’impugnatura,sono davvero maneggevoli..ottimi anche per chi non è particolarmente pratico..

    • abadgirlovesilence io aspetto qualche buona offerta dai siti inglesi per colpire :3

      • kenderasia abadgirlovesilence io aspetto l’arrivo dello Starter Set(è in viaggio<3) e conto di prendere anche qualche “manico rosa” prima o poi..conto anche di darmi una calmata..prima o poi

  2. Non potrei essere più d’accordo! Il buffing brush mi ha cambiato la vita, mi sembra di mettere il fondo mille volte meglio! E il contour lo amo <3

  3. quando mi deciderò a provare i RT inizierò sicuramente da questo set *____* il buffing brush e il contour brush mancano nel mio arsenale pennelloso :3

    • shoppingandreviews quei due mi sono diventati indispensabili!

  4. i like playing with makeup and various brushes.

  5. but the only brushes i seem to use are the blush, powder and eye shadow brushes.

  6. Love Real Technique brushes. The ones from this set are fantastic. I like the contour brush for applying powder through my T-zone and setting under eye concealer. I was surprised to find out these sets are cheaper here in Canada ($18 cnd).

    • SaraBaker10 I never tried the contour brush this way, I’ll give it a try, thanks for your suggestion ;)
