Real Techniques Brushes "Pixiwoo"
A few weeks ago I decided to expand my brush collection with a few of the new Real Techniques brushes. The Real technique brushes were designed by Sam of Pixiwoo.
I bought the travel essentials set. The set comes with three full sized brushes (foundation brush, blush brush, & eyeshadow brush) and a travel case that stands up.
essential foundation brush: Build flawless custom coverage with liquid foundation or concealer
This brush is very dense and tapered so you can work around the curves of you face.
I like this brush for applying foundation, I feel like it blends everything nicely. In all honesty though I still reach for my Sigma Kabuki brush to apply foundation, I just like the results I get from it better.
multi-task brush: for effortless application of powder, blush, and bronzer
My favorite brush of the bunch!! This brush is soft and applies blush beautifully and evenly.
domed shadow brush: tapered design smoothly shades and defines eyes
This is a great brush for packing on color, but I feel like for applying color to your crease this brush is just too dense. I find that I apply more eyeshadow than I need if I use this for the crease.
panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + stand
I am a fan of this case, the material is easy to clean and all of the brushes fit nicely when the case is closed.
Overall this is a good travel brush kit, the quality is AMAZING and you would never know it's 'drugstore' brand. I would recommend this to someone who is new to makeup, especially since the quality of the brushes and price ($18 approx) is great. I personally don't feel like this is something I need, but I think it all comes down to preferences. I like to apply my foundation with a kabuki brush and my eyeshadow with a less dense brush.
I hope to find the Core Collection in my area soon, the kabuki style brushes seem more my style.
Have you tried any of the Real Techniques brushes?
