Excuse the dirtiness of these brushes, you can clearly tell that I use these little guys way too much. I have always been a fan when it comes to Real Techniques brushes and when I got these for my birthday, I was completely over the moon. Each brush has a ultra-plush synthetic bristles for high definition results, and there all 100% cruelty free. In this core collection you get 4 brushes including a pointed foundation brush, buffing brush, contour brush and a detailer brush. The brushes are so lightweight which makes it easy to use each one, and they're also hand cut to make sure they fit comfortably in your hand. Each brush base is flat so they can sit on your counter if you don't have a brush holder. 

Pointed Foundation Brush

The purpose of this brush is to apply your liquid foundations with, but I personally think this brush is way too small to apply foundation around my whole face. Instead, I like to use this brush for my under eye concealer as I find it gives good coverage and I have noticed a difference in how long my concealer lasts for when using this brush. The brush is so soft that it doesn't cause any discomfort when using underneath the eye.

Buffing Brush

My favourite brush out of this collection! I normally use the Expert Face Brush to apply my liquid foundation daily, but whenever I'm not using that or when I want to have a more natural looking finish with my foundation, I will definitely reach for my buffing brush. It buffs the foundation into your skin giving you full coverage without it looking too caked or fake. I have also tried this brush for when I apply my highlighter as it does tend to fit right on top of my cheek bones perfectly and it gives an even application. 

Contour Brush

I never used to contour my cheek bones before using this brush. I always found that whenever I do try to contour it just looks like I've put way too much product on and I have a really harsh line. This brush has completely change my view on contouring! It doesn't put too much product on your face and it blends out your bronzer so amazingly well. It fits perfectly in the hollows of my cheeks to give me a nice defined contour. 

Detailer Brush

I love using this brush to conceal any little blemishes I may have lurking around on my skin. It's the smallest brush ever but does such a good job at covering up those nasty spots and red patches on my face. I fits just right at the sides of my nose where I tend to get a lot of redness but it covers it up completely. Never knew how much of an impact such a tiny brush could make.
