Everyone and their mother has heard of Real Techniques brushes - heck, even Simon Cowell's make-up artist uses them, so I'm not going to bang on about how flippin' excellent they are, because we all know that already.
Today's post is about the newest three to be released by the cult brand; sadly, these are not part of the permanent collection, so you'll have to snap them up quickly! The set comes with three duo-fibre brushes - the main purpose of these is to prevent the oh-too-easy problem of picking up too much product. I'm sure we've all been there with a bright blusher or eyeshadow that was darker than we first anticipated, only to end up looking like a clown and hurriedly searching for some make-up remover. Am I right?
The last brush in the set is the 'Duo-Fibre Eye Brush', which is quite similar in shape to a MAC 224. It's great for those days when you want a smokey eye, that's not too smokey - do you get me? Or if you're using a particularly highly-pigmented shadow and you don't want to end up looking like you've stepped out of a drag act in Soho. This also saves the issue of needing more than one brush to blend a darker shadow colour, as it only picks up a small amount to start with - see, it even saves on the washing up!
