Real Techniques Nic's Picks


I have been on the hunt for new make up brushes for a while so when I heard that Real Techniques were releasing this Nics Picks collection I knew I had to have them! I have loved this brand ever since its release and the brushes really are exceptional quality at such a low price. I've had most of my Real Techniques brushes for almost a year and they are still in amazing condition despite me neglecting to clean them regularly (we all do it)! I managed to pick these up from Superdrug for just £20, and for two face brushes and three eye brushes that is an amazing deal. 

My favourite of the bunch is the angled shadow brush which is an exclusive to this set, and is best used for applying eye shadow to the crease as the angled shape gets in there perfectly, and creates a gorgeous blended look with almost no effort at all. The other eye brushes are the base eye shadow brush which is pretty self explanatory, but no less fabulous, and finally the eye liner brush, which is another exclusive and something I'm so excited about. I've been needing a brush like this to use on my eyebrows and this one is perfect as its much firmer than standard eyeliner brushes. 

Now onto the face brushes; another exclusive in here is the cheek brush, which is basically a larger version of the expert face brush. Now I'm not really sure whether I would use this brush for blusher as its very firm, and I don't tend to wear cream blush, but I'm sure I'll find some use for it. Lastly, and my second favourite of the lot is the duo-fiber powder brush which is super soft and is going to make a great companion to my blotting powder; it creates an amazing airbrushed look! I'm literally so happy with all of these! 

What are your Real Technique favourites? Would you buy this set?
