These are the best eyeshadow brushes you can buy for the price. They beat out the competitions costing the same for just one brush. The bristles are so soft, they clean up easy and there's no shedding. They blend very well and deposit color adequately. I'll be buying more in the future.

These brushes are great if you like a very natural look, by which I mean a "not wearing any eyeshadow at all" look. The synthetic bristles are so slippery that they can't pick up product, and so even the most pigmented eyeshadows end up as a sheer, very uneven wash of color.

They might work for cream products better than for powder ones. I don't know. I gave up on the brow brush after using what must have been half a palette's worth of powder and seeing no discernible difference in my eyebrows whatsoever, and had to wipe my makeup off and start over after the base shadow brush and the deluxe brush made an ugly, patchy mess of a Stila shadow I've gotten to look great with ELF brushes before. I'd hoped that the little smudgy accent brush would be good for applying shadow as liner under the lower lashline, but as with the brow brush, I wasted a lot of product just trying to get any color to show up at all. Which it never did. I ended up having to use a different brush.

These brushes ARE decent--not great, but decent--at blending out shadows that have already been applied with better brushes, but that's about all they can do, and I gave them a star for that. But I'm really upset that I wasted my money on brushes that can't even get eye makeup onto my eyes.

I always thought it was suspect that Sam and Nic never use their own eyeshadow brushes in their tutorials. Now I know why.

      Real techniques brushes get great reviews and they deserve it, I'm mostly giving it three start because I feel these should be sold individually, the quality is great, if you are a beginner go for it and also get the shading brush, if that was included here instead of the eyeliner or angled brush I would probably give it another star, since I think you have more uses for that brush than the angled brush in this set.

              I have spent money on brushes that should make me ashamed. After finding these, I am. Totally delighted with how these perform with any and all makeup. This is the second set of brushes I've purchased from this line, and they are just the best I've found, at any price. Highly recommended.

                  I was finally able to grab this set, every place who carries them, were on back order or something, anyway, I grabbed this up, this is the Best Set of eye brushes I have ever owned, including MAC! Extremely easy to use, grabs just enough product, the final look is always Fantastic, you cant go wrong with this Set, everything you need is in this set to create the perfect eye look you want. If you buy anything from Real Techniques, I recommend this set first as sometimes this set is hard to find, grab when you see it, then the Core Set is a must have as well. I am going to buy more sets to have on hand as for the Price of these, you simply cannot wrong. Love Real Technique products, Ladies you have to try them.
