Real Techniques - Nics Picks

For years now I have wanted a Real Techniques brush set and finally this Christmas, I got one. My wonderful sister bought me these and it was such a coincidence that it was the exact set that I wanted! 'Nics Picks' retails for £29.99 and I have to say it is such good value for money. The set includes 5 brushes that would help you complete a whole face look, 3 of them are exclusive to the kit. 




 Here is a close up of all the brushes:


I will definitely be purchasing more from Real Techniques in the future, the brushes are just such great quality! My favourite so far is the Duo Powder Fibre brush as it just makes my skin look so smooth when I apply my powder. I also love the cheek brush as it is so dense and applies my bronzer on perfectly! The angled eyeshadow brush looks perfect for applying a crease colour, I am still yet to use it though. I have used the base shadow brush to apply colour all over my eyelid and it was good, not a very unique one but it did its job. Finally I have been using the eyeliner brush to outline my lower lash line with black eyeshadow, it would be great for winged liner but I use a marker one. Would also be good for eyebrows actually. I really do recommend this kit!








Have you tried any Real Techniques brushes?

  7. I had the Expert Face brush on my Christmas list this year but didn't get it. Think I'm going to have to just suck it up and spend the money! I love the silver handles of these ones too :) xx

  10. Real Techniques brushes are incredible considering the price. I am so tempted by the Nic's picks, but then they've also just brought out their high end range which look stunning. Decisions, decisions (what a hard life ;) )
