Real Techniques 'Limited Edition' Duo-Fiber Set | Review



 Hey girlie's!!!

Today I'm back with an exciting review featuring one of my most favourite brush brands Real Techniques. Real Techniques brushes are designed by the lovely Samantha Chapman from Pixiwoo. Sam has released lots of different individual brushes and brush sets so far but today I'll be reviewing her 'Limited Edition Duo-Fiber Set' which is a definite must have for any make-up or beauty lover.

The set contains 3 full size brushes, a face brush, a contour brush and an eye brush, which can all be used with cream, liquid and powder products. What I love about these brushes is that theres 2 different synthetic fibres in each brush making them 'duo-fibre', this helps to create soft layers, add texture and most of all to make your make-up look pixel perfect, sounds amazing right?

Onto each brush you receive in the set....

Duo-Fiber Face Brush*
This brush is great for applying any face product whether it be a setting powder, blusher or bronzer, the brush applies each product softly, allowing you to control how much you wish to layer up your products. Personally Ive been using this brush to lightly set my foundation into place with a loose setting powder, I also find its nice to blend over any bronzer or blush that I've used just to make sure everything is well blended, overall it's a lovely brush that I now couldn't be without.

Duo-Fiber Contour Brush*
So as the name suggests this is primarily to use for contouring, if your not a pro at contouring like me, your going to love this brush as it applies your contour powder so soft, even if your heavy handed, and the brush allows you to keep layering up the product until your happy, I love it. 

Duo-Fiber Eye Brush*
I adore this brush, it applies and blends out your eye shadow on the contours of your eyes a dream, leaving no harsh lines and gives such a seamless finish, its also great for blending your concealer out under your eyes and around your nose too.

All of the Real Techniques brushes in the Limited Edition Duo-Fiber Set have light weight aluminium handle's making them really easy to use and have a rubber section at the bottom of the handle for extra grip and control, and all of the brushes are 100% cruelty free too which is a major plus. 

Overall I absolutely love these brushes and the finish they leave you with is beautiful and so natural. You can buy this Limited Edition Duo-Fiber Real Techniques Brush Set from Fragrance Direct for £21.50, that's around £7.00 per brush, what a bargain when they perform just as well as any high end brush!!!

Have you got these brushes girlie's??? Are you a Real Techniques fan??? I'd love to know.
