Real Technique Brush CORE COLLECTION Review

Hey dolls!
So lately obsessed with online shopping since it's hustle free from crowded people, and plus where I live some cosmetics products are not available here. :( So with the help of social websites I was through out shopping online ^_^
So I purchased a brush set called the Core Collection from the brand name Real Techniques, and I purchased them at KALM Cosmetics for only P989.00 pesos for a set of these brushes.
They're authorized retailer of Real Technique Brushes in the Philippines so you could get them for the price that's very affordable & reasonable and worth it.
Make sure to check out their Facebook page & Don't forget to like :)

The brushes are in the Core Collection and it comes in a 2-in-1 Case + stand and
 "your base/Flawless" plus it's for 
~ High definition results
~ Online tutorial makes you the Expert

(Oh and um If you see like the box was kind of smashed a bit, it was from the courier I guess but it's okay since my brushes are safely in one whole shape^_^ )

So here's a full front view of how the brushes looks like :

Actually in reality the color of the brushes are in a golden yellow but my camera is showing like a orange/y gold color but it's not.

Starting from the package itself, the brushes comes in a plastic see through box, and at the back you could see about the brand name Real Techniques and it was designed by the sisters of Pixiwoo from youtube, which is Samantha Champman, A Professional Makeup Artist, Beauty Blogger and who is the expert designer of the Real Tech brushes that she believes it will give you that "pixel perfect look". 

Plus additional to the package are the details of the brushes itself and each has it's own functionalities.

While on the front package itself, is their Brand name logo and the type of brush kit itself, I purchased the "Core Collection"  which is to create your face a flawless look. And the kit comes with by the way a 2-in-1 Case + stand which i think is brilliant! ^_^

Last thing for the package i notice is that the brushes are securely packed well safely.

Now for the actual brushes . . . 


The kit consist of four brushes which are (TOP - BOTTOM)

~ Contour Brush
~ Pointed Foundation Brush
~Detailer Brush
~Buffing Brush


Each Brushes are imprinted with the brand name and it's function which is very useful for starters because it will be much easier for anyone who uses the brush with it's function on it.  

Now to talk about the brush itself, the brush has a ferrule which is the orange color, and honestly i thought it was squeezing the brush, but it does not squeeze the bristles of the brush.
For the Handle (the black base) it secures the bod of the brush that's attached securely and has a matte finish to it. 
For me i like how each brushes was designed because from the outcome of it, you'll definitely look like a Pro Makeup Artist!

I already mentioned a while ago that it comes with a 2-in-1 case + stand so here it is: 

The brush case & stand comes in a sleek black synthetic material but not that typical leather.
Attached to the case is a mini instruction to create the stand.

Here's a little demonstration :

You the string with the toggle attached to it? Before pulling it bend first the case into half like so:

Then tighten the toogle along with the string :

Pull the string with the toogle for any adjustment to the stand :

and tadaaaahhh! you have your very own case + stand in instant! and keeping your brushes organized and on the go.

You can stack up the case with your other brushes if you want :)

Now for each brush. . 

(Detailer Brush)

The detailer brush is for concealing problem areas, or you can use this for lipstick and for long-lasting with it's defined shape and definition.  


It's for liquid foundation to build custom coverage 


It's for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation

What I noticed about the buffing brush is, the bristles are soft and it's not stiff.


It delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft focus finished.

OverAll Verdict:

Honestly for a Price as P989.00 like a brush set like this, is affordable and worth it for anyone! Plus you'll have the feeling like a PRO Makeup Artist with these sleek brush collection.
For me i like how the bristles of the brushes because they are the softest ones i have ever had. And the are multi functional because it comes with a 2 way case + stand and they are well organized and I'd prefer these ones to my travel bags because they're not too heavy to bring with.

For my final verdict I'd give 5/5 for the real technique brushes :)

Till next time as always Take care & "simply love life always"
