Real Techniques Core Collection



I have wanted this Real Techniques Buffing Brush for ages, it must be creeping to years that I have had my eye on this brush for now. I am sure I am not the only person that has seen this brush all over beauty blogs and in countless YouTube makeup tutorials and I have always thought about how stunning it looks. It just looks like a really soft and easy to use buffing brush, like a perfect cross between the Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush and the Morphe M439. But, as much as I wanted this brush I didn’t want to have to buy the whole Real Techniques Core Collection to get that one brush that I wanted.
I know it might sound petty because the whole kit is only around £20.99 so it is good value for money, but I just didn’t want the other brushes. I have hell of a lot of makeup brushes and I only really wanted the Buffing Brush out of the collection and you can’t buy it separately. But, I guess I finally gave in and decided just to go for it. I know it is a money-making technique and I don’t blame Pixiwoo for that, but I just didn’t want to spend that kind of money for one brush that I wanted. Which, is where my Boots Advantage points come into play.

As you can probably guess, I spend far too much money on makeup through the year, which means that I rake in some serious Boots advantage points, I normally wait until the end of the year and then treat myself with them, but in this case, I decided that I needed a little midyear treat, so I bought myself a couple of goodies, including this Real Techniques Core Collection brushes. And I have to admit, that now I have it, I am very glad that it did come in a kit and that I got 4 really good and high-quality brushes.


In this Core Collections kit, you get the Buffing Brush, a Square Foundation brush, Detail Brush and the Contouring Brush. I would say that out of all of the brushes the Buffing Brush is my favourite and most used, closely followed by the Contouring Brush. These two brushes are the ones that have started playing a part in my daily makeup routine and that from me is massive praise because for me to fall in love with a brush and kick some of my old reliable ones to the curb I have to really like using them.
The Buffing Brush I have been using to apply my foundation and help blend in all of my liquid and crème products. This is a super soft brush and I just seem to buff everything really flawlessly into the skin. I have started using this over my Morphe M439, which I have used for years because the bristles move a little more freely which makes the product buff into the skin quickly, rather than just smearing the product like denser brushes can do. Then in this Real Techniques Core Collection, you have the Detailer Brush. I think this brush is meant to be used for concealer and getting into fine areas, but for me this is perfect for blending eyeshadow into the lower lash line.
You also get a Square Foundation Brush, which I have to admit that I don’t really love. I don’t think that it is the right density to apply product very well, well not the products that I have been trying to use it with anyway. I will keep it with my other brushes, but I really cannot imagine that I am going to use it much over the years. Then finally you get a Contouring Brush, which is a tapered blending brush which I think is perfect for blending out crème products. I apply crème contour in the hallows of my cheekbones, around the forehead and under the jawline and this brush just blends it out so flawlessly, I wasn’t excited about this brush to start with, but I am so glad that I have got it!


I really do love this kit and I use most of the brushes on a daily basis, like I said the Square Foundation brush just isn’t for me, but I guess that it is all down to personal preference. As you would expect with Real Techniques Brushes, they are all really high quality and I have noticed absolutely zero shedding from them which is a massive positive. As normal with everything here on my blog, I will link down below to this collection in case you want to check it out!

  4. The buffing brush is one my all time favourites for applying foundation. I love the contour brush for concealer too. It's annoying that they only come part of the set because I don't like that square foundation either xx
