Real Techniques Niks Piks Brushes (Limited Edition)

I love Real Techniques Brushes, most of my brushes are from this brand, I think they are better than some of my Mac Brushes as most of them shred onto my face, its very annoying. All of there brushes are  affordable and every time theres new brushes released I get excited. This set contains 5 brushes and 3 of them being new set exclusives, I love the silver handles it makes them look a bit more luxurious then the other brushes.

First is the Duo - Fibre Powder Brush, its the biggest brush out of the others, this is ideal for a light weight application and easy to apply over my t-zone without caking powder onto my face, Ive been particularly enjoying it for lightly bronzing my face if I don't want go to too over the top with my bronzer lol, It gives my skin such a flawless look.

Next is the Cheek Brush (exclusive) this looks quite similar to the expert face brush, but the shape is more rounder and the hairs are more dense, I had a play around to see what I could use this for, I love that I can use it for 4 things, Foundation, Bronzer, Blusher and highlighter.

Now on to the Angled shadow Brush which is also Exclusive, (this brush is next to the cheek brush in the picture) this is designed to fit in the crease of the eye, I'm not much of an eye shadow person, so with these 3 eye brushes I was hoping to wear a lot more eye shadow and it has succeeded.

Next is the Base Shadow Brush, this is great for applying eyeshadow bases but Ive actually been using this for my concealer as its nice and small and fits right under the eyes, its lovely and soft too. 

The last one is the EyeLiner Brush (Exlusive) Now I must admit I thought this was used for the eyebrows which is what I've been using my powdered products for but its used for eyeliner haha I'm still going to use this for my brows as its perfect for filling them in and creating more of an arch which is what I definitely need.

Ive been using these pretty much since I brought them a couple of months ago and I can't recommend them enough. They Retail at £29.99.

  10. I love these too, I read a few negative reviews on them and couldn't understand why because I think they're amazing too! I also use the little eyeliner brush for my eyebrows, I prefer it to my Mac 266, it's just incredible for getting that perfect arch!

    Lots of Love,

  14. I'm obsessed with the Real Techniques Brushes, sadly these larger kits don't release in my area and this is one I would have purchased several of because the brushes seem so great for so many things!

  18. Great review, I have really been debating this set, but didn't know the cheek brush was an exclusive I did think it was one of their cheek brushes from their travel set. I love the design of these also :)

  25. These sets look gorgeous, I wonder if the chrome handles were hinting at the bold metals collection that came out afterwards?!
