I wanted to get a decently priced starter kit of brushes, especially to apply foundation, and I'd seen very good reviews of these brushes here, YouTube, and other makeup websites. I have to say that my purchase was worth it and I am loving these new brushes.

I would say the best brush out of the four (and the reason I bought this package) is the buffing brush. I usually use it to apply cream foundation and the results are excellent. I have oily acne-prone skin with lots of hyper-pigmentation and scars and this brush gives me a nice, smooth application and very good coverage. The bristles are very soft and they make the foundation go on very smoothly. I'm really loving it. I use the contour brush to apply blush as it is small and I like blush brushes that are small and let me be detailed where my blush goes on (not huge ones). The pointed foundation brush I use for concealer (when needed) as it is very small to put on foundation. The detailer brush says it's for concealers or lipstick but I have actually used it as an additional eye shadow brush, especially to add deeper colors on the crease (I have small eyes) and for more detail work on the eyes. I find these brushes very versatile as they are synthetic and I can use them with any type of product. If in doubt, the makers of these brushes have tutorials on their website.

I've only washed them once and they do not shed and I don't expect them to from what I've read from other reviews. Still looking for a good cleanser that is not too expensive and allows me not to wet the brushes to wash them. I also find the case very useful for putting my brushes upside down to dry after washing them. I use it to put them upside down so that the water does not get into the head of the brushes.

Overall, great brushes at a very good price.

These brushes are smaller than they appear on the website. I love how soft they and they are very easy to clean. However, they are not phenomenal brushes. It takes a few tries to figure out how to properly apply product with them and since they are small, I spend a lot of time buffing. They are great for a beginner but I much prefer the individual Real technique brushes.

    The original color of the brush handles was nice & elegant . The new bright orange one looks kinda tacky & ugly. sorry but I had to say it.
    Lots of people are complaining about this, why change the signature color of a world known product ? Pleade consider changing it back to what it was
    Same thing for pink brushes, I liked the light older version more than the hot pink

      These are excellent brushes at a wonderful price. They have synthetic bristles, making them great for cream, liquid or powder products. They have not shed; clean easily and great to use. Very please.

      Love it! It's really soft and delicate for my skin, I use every day on the morning, the only one cons: it's shorter than single brushes by Real Techniques, however is the same quality.

            These are the best choice for rushes I have used. Great value they work really well. I wish they came individually, because I don't use all of them at this time. But the quality is really good.

              I bought the set for myself and for my niece... This is the softest brush set that I ever had. It is easy to use, easy to clean, affordable (I got it with extra discount)
              , the container keeps the brushes intact... I love using it with my mineral makeups.

                    So excited that these are full size brushes! I thought they would be half size or "travel" size but wanted to try them anyway due to many good reviews here & at other sites. I'm going to order the eye set now & hope they will be just as great!

                      Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Core Collection

                       – Unhappy with the results you get from your makeup? If it seems that even when you follow tutorials for makeup application and use high quality products, you're just not able to produce the gorgeous looks you want, your brushes may to be blame! The right makeup brushes can make all the difference in the results possible with cosmetics, and the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Core Collection gives you a set of essential tools to help you perfect and beautify your face with your favorite makeup.

                      The Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Core Collection was created by well-known makeup artist Samantha Chapman. As an avid blogger, Chapman heard often from women who were struggling to get great results with cosmetics. After hearing so many women state they were dissatisfied with the cosmetics tools available on the market, Chapman decided to design her own collection of makeup brushes, and the Real Techniques line was born.

                      In the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Core Collection, you'll get the four brushes necessary for applying cosmetics to the cheeks, jaw, chin, forehead and nose. The Real Techniques set includes a Pointed Foundation Brush for sweeping on liquid and cream-based foundations and a Buffing Brush for powdered foundation and for translucent, pigmented and setting powders. With the Detailer Brush, you can easily apply concealer and corrector to trouble zones to disguise imperfections like hyperpigmentation and blemishes. Completing the set is the Contour Brush for applying cheek color, bronzer and highlighter.

                      Because of their unique construction and materials, the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Core Collection is unlike any other makeup brush set on the market. The brushes feature specially designed 100 percent synthetic bristles that are smoother and engineered to promote even application of cosmetics. Instead of being mass-produced by machines, the brush heads are cut by hand. This allows for a much higher level of quality control and ensures that each brush is absolutely perfect before it's packaged into the set's Panoramic Case, which also doubles as a brush stand.

                      The Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Core Collection is a must-have for any woman who loves makeup. Ready to travel but equally ideal for daily use at home, the set gives you everything you need to apply facial cosmetics like foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighter and concealer. The set is a great present for any occasion and also the perfect way to treat yourself to a gift of beauty.
