Real Techniques 'Collectors Edition' Sculpting Set Review ♥

Hey beaut's

You may have seen that back in May I reviewed the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush which you can read all about here, and because I was so impressed with the brush and the fact Superdrug had a cracking offer on I ended up treating myself to the Collectors Edition Sculpting Set, it was Superdrugs Star Buy for just £13.99 so I couldn't resist a cheeky Real Techniques bargain could I he he. 
The Sculpting Set has been put together to help us achieve that perfect contoured look, whether you want to accentuate your bone structure, enhance facial features or highlight those cheek bones this little trio will have you covered. As I just mentioned the Sculpting Set contains three Real Technique brushes in total, one of which is exclusive to the set and cant be found anywhere else or be bought separately. The sets lightweight handles also have a new and exclusive finish to them in the form of bright pink shiny chrome, arhhh they are so pretty aren't they! Like with all Real Techniques Brushes the Sculpting Set follows suit with the super soft, hand cut. duo fibre synthetic taklon bristles which can be used with cream, liquid and powder products and are all 100% cruelty free which is a major plus.

Anywhooo lets see what I think of each brush individually.....
♥ Sculpting Brush 

 I've been completely obsessed with this brush so I'm super happy I now have two to play with he he. The bristles of the Sculpting Brush are quite dense and are shaped into a narrow oval shape, this makes it so effective for contouring as it fits right into the hollows of the cheek, around the jaw line and down the sides of the nose perfectly. Like most Real Techniques brushes the Sculpting Brush can be used in multiple ways, I've personally been using it mostly for foundation application and have been obsessed with the results. It leaves the same finish on the skin as the Real Techniques Buffing Brush does when used with liquid foundation and is so easy to blend with and really gets in those harder to reach areas because of it's shape. Contouring is something I'm only just getting really into and I find the Sculpting brush really does make this easier for me, I'd highly recommend this brush to any beginners in the contouring world like myself or to anyone that's looking for a gorgeous foundation buffing brush.
♥ Fan Brush

The Fan Brush is the sets exclusive brush and believe it or not its the very first fan brush that I own, so as you can imagine I was eager to try this little beauty. The Fan Brush is designed to softly sweep on powders and whisk away any excess makeup for an even finish, personally I've been using it to highlight with everyday because it just creates such a soft, diffused finish.
♥ Setting Brush 

I do already own one of the Setting Brushes but I'm happy to have another in my collection because I use if for so many things, it really is a very versatile brush. It's small, somewhat tapered shape allows you to either highlight with it, use it with a dusting of setting powder under the eye area or you can use it as a blush/contour brush, I've used it for all of the above and it works amazingly. 
Overall I'm in absolute love with the Real Techniques Sculpting Set and it's quickly become one of my favourite sets that Real Techniques have released, the sculpting brush is just amazing, the fan brush has changed my highlighting life and the setting brush is a great all rounder for me. You really cant beat Real Techniques brushes for price and quality can you, they are such reliable brushes that always perform brilliantly and wash up as good as new.

Have you tried the Collectors Edition Sculpting Set beaut's?? What's your favourite brush out of the set?? I'd love to know.
