Real Techniques Haul!

I had heard so many great things about the Real Techniques brushes designed by makeup artist Samantha Chapman from the UK, but I was always hesitant to purchase them online as they are not available in stores here in Canada and I didn't want to spend a crazy amount on shipping. But after doing some research I came across an affiliated website to the website called which offers a great bargain not only on the brushes but also on international shipping. If you use the coupon code FFM227 prior to checkout on their website, you will get $10 off your purchase if your total is over $40, or $5 off if it totals under $40. Also, now offers free international shipping if your cart totals $40 or more, and if not it is a flat shipping fee of only $4, which is crazy cheap! :)

Each set cost me $17.99 (again, I couldn't believe my eyes), but with the coupon code I was able to get an extra $10 off since my order was over $40. So instead of having to pay $54, I only payed $44, which is such a bargain considering the quality of these brushes, and the amount of brushes I got for the price (12 in total).

Here is what I ordered: 

From Left to Right: Core Collection, Travel Essentials, and Starter Set
The Core Collection contains:
contour brush
pointed foundation brush
detailer brush
buffing brush
The Travel Essentials consist of:
essential foundation brush
domed shadow brush
multi-task brush

The Starter Set contains:
base shadow brush
deluxe crease brush
accent brush
pixel-point eyeliner brush
brow brush
Each brush can be used on so many different areas of the face since they are all synthetic and made of taklon bristles. They do not shed, are ultra light-weight, and dry super quickly. Another plus is that the brush names are printed on each brush to simplify use. If you do not own Real Techniques brushes already, you are in for a wonderful treat! :)
