Real Techniques Core Collection

So here it is, I was waiting and waiting for this package to come so exciting! I purchased the Real Techniques Core Collection from Amazon as my nearest Boots store doesn't sell these. 

 The brushes come in a small travel pack with handy slots, however as much as I find the travel kit helpful I probably wont use it as I keep my brushes in one bag when travelling.

 Buffing Brush - "ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation" I personally have been using this for foundation as I feel it gives a flawless finish, the bristles are packed together making blending super easy.

Contouring Brush - "delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish" I had never used a purpose built contour brush before and I love it! it gives the perfect definition and also is really soft. 

Foundation Brush - "Use with liquid foundation to build custom coverage" I use this to apply my concealer as I think its the perfect size to go under the eyes, also putting liquid foundation on would take a lot of time because of how small this is. 

Detailer Brush- "precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition" As I haven't used this brush yet I cannot comment on its purposes but I know it will get the least use out of the full collection.

Overall I love this collection, It retails at £20.99 on average and I think its completely worth the price, the buffing brush itself I would pay this price for as the application is superb and flawless. I would truly recommend this to anyone who wants a good set of brushes but doesn't want to pay the prices of MAC and Sigma.
