I really love the flawless finish these brushes give. The only exception is the pointed foundation brush I think it works better with my concealer, plus it takes forever to use as a foundation brush. They wash brilliantly and not one has shed. (Posted on 3/12/2014)

This has been a godsend for me! The buffing brush is amazing for liquid foundation, and although the pointed foundation is a little too small for applying foundation, its perfect for concealer, especially under the eyes. The detailer brush is also amazing for concealer with use on smaller blemishes. The contour brush makes contouring so much easier with the tapered tip, gathering just enough product and blending it perfectly. Its definitely a great set to start your Real Techniques collection!

This is a high quality set. I use the smaller powder brush for contouring and the smallest brush for lipstick but it could also work for concealer. They are really soft on the skin and the coverage with powder is great. (Posted on 11/8/2013)

This set is amazing value. Since purchasing the Contour Brush makes contouring effortless and has become a staple in my make-up routine. The Buffing Brush works runny foundations into the skin beautifully for a seamless finish. The Pointed Foundation Brush is quite good for patting concealer under the eyes in my opinion and the Detailer Brush I use for applying highlight to the inner corner of the eye.
Great set, perfect for a gift :) (Posted on 9/24/2013)

Buffing brush my favorite fondation brush (Posted on 9/23/2013)
Review by JNABRX
Overall rating
The detailer brush is great for concealing spots, really impressive. The pointed foundation brush is great for highlighter, I don't love it for foundation, but as a highlighter brush it's fantastic. The contour brush is great for applying contour, it works really well, and is easy to use. The buffing brush is my least favourite out of the bunch. I like it, it's good, but I don't love it as much as my other brushes. I mainly use it for applying cream brush, but not for buffing in concealer or foundation that much. (Posted on 9/23/2013)

These are honestly my most favourite brushes ever, especially the buffing brush. I always use this now to apply my foundation. I use the foundation brush mostly for concealer and primer application and then the contour brush is absolutely awesome. I smaller brush for eyeshadow or lipstick sometimes. I totally don't regret buying this set. I would repurchase any day! Have had no shedding, they wash out properly and I don't have to wait long for them to dry! (Posted on 7/1/2013)

Bought these a while ago and have been using the buffing brush every day to apply liquid foundation. Give a flawless coverage in seconds. The detailer brush is brilliant for lipstick and the blush brush is a great accessory to the kit. I do think it would of been better to add a fluffy powder brush instead of the pointed foundation brush but as that's my opinion it can't be faulted for what it does. Have already reccomended them on to several friends (Posted on 4/28/2013)

I bought the core collection mainly for the buffing brush and I'm glad I did. They are the softest brushes I have ever used and cruelty free which is always a plus.
Considering most professional brushes cost at least 30€ each this set is a real bargain. (Posted on 11/22/2012)

Grande Cloud 10! Consegna super veloce!I pennelli sono meravigliosi,ordinerò presto anche il set per occhi.L'unica cosa che non mi è piaciuta molto è un particolare del portapennelli: la piccola "pallina" che ferma il cordoncino. Quando il cordoncino viene usato per portare il portapennelli come una "borsetta", la "pallina" che lo blocca va a schiacciare il contour brush. Cercherò di spostare il fermo di plastica nella parte inferiore dove non farà danni. (Posted on 11/7/2012)

First of all I want to give a big thumbs up to Cloud 10 for delivering my package so quickly. I normally wait ages for mail from the UK etc. Secondly - these brushes are amazing! They are really soft and do their job so well. I am only giving 4 stars because to me, the foundation brush is a bit pointless because it is just an odd size. But it doesn't really bother me that much. (Posted on 10/3/2012)

I absolutely LOVE Real Techniques brushes, they are incredibly soft, do not smell weird, bleed or shed, cruelty free and comfortable to use and hold, very light handles. They are amazing quality and for such a good price. The Core Collection is a must have, the buffing brush is great for all sorts of foundations and powders, the contour brush is great for highlighting, the pointed foundation brush is great for concealing and also the detailer brush too which also works to apply lip products. Real Techniques are the best brushes I've used, way better than MAC. (Posted on 8/16/2012)

This set is fantastic. My favourite is the buffing blush which I use as my foundation brush. It works similarly to a stippling brush but is much quicker to use. The contouring brush a great shape for a soft contour. I was very surprised at the quality of these brushes, they are on par with mac. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I haven't found much use for the other 2 brushes. (Posted on 7/22/2012)

Great collection of brushes, soft but durable. I have been using them for different purposes than what was suggested on the back of the packaging. For example, the foundation brush is a bit too small for covering the whole face in my opinion but it is perfect for concealer. Overall, a brilliant set of brushes that I have been using daily.

I can't believe how good these actually are. I have spent a fortune through the years on Mac and Smashbox brushes and these beat them hands down and for the price you cant afford not to get these. I also ordered the Starter kit so I cannot wait to try them out too!! (Posted on 7/3/2012)
Review by AM
Overall rating
I had already bought the starter (eye) kit and the blush brush before buying this set and was so impressed with them and heard great things about this set I decided to get these too. As with the other brushes they are fantastic quality, wash well, dry very quickly they don't lose their shape and I like that the sets are colour coded so I can grab the one I want easily. As they are made from synthetic hair they don't absorb any product either like animal hair brushes and are cruelty free which is a big plus for me.

I got the set mainly for the buffing brush to blend in my foundation after I apply it with my hands and it works perfectly. The contour brush is brilliant for applying bronzer- I use it with my Chanel tan de soleil and the lip brush is great too, small enough for precise application. The foundation brush is pretty useless as it's an awkward shape and size so mine has been untouched, I suppose it could be used for concealer or highlighter but I find the eye brushes in the starter kit way better for concealer. Despite the uselessness of the foundation brush, this set is amazing value for money for such high quality brushes that wash well and never shed. I'd never use any other brand than Real Techniques for my brushes as they do everything I want at a great affordable price. (Posted on 6/14/2012)

When i first bought them i didnt think they'd be as good as other brushes but these are amazing and so cheap. Usually when i buy a make up brush set there are always the odd brushes that i dont like/use but with this i like all of them especially the buffer brush it blends foundation in beautifully and the contour brush is perfect for the hollows of your cheeks. However i find the foundation brush too small for foundation and covering the face but it is amazing for under eye concealer and also the detailer brush i use that to sometimes blend my eyeshadows on my lower lash line or for highlighter inner corners of my eyes.

The case for the brushes is light & cleverly designed to be versatile "2-in-1 case + stand" so will be great when traveling. It also allows for other brushes to be put in the case on the opposite side. However because it is just a continuous strand of elastic the brushes tend not to stay positioned neatly but I am thinking up a creative way to combat this!.
The brushes are very good quality and have had no problem with the bristles falling out which has occurred with other well known brands which use real hair & are very expensive. My no.1 brush is the "Buffing brush" which I use with liquid foundation & results are flawless. The "Foundation brush" is small so instead I use it for concealing around the lips & under the eyes. I use a sponge to press loose powder onto under eye concealer to set it & since I already own an angled contour brush I use the "Contour brush" to brush the loose powder away which in turn blends/buffs the area creating a "sheer, soft-focus finish". Great product. Great Price. I recommend.
