Real Techniques Haul | Round 3 - The Expert Face and Setting Brushes

I have done it yet again. I got more makeup brushes (like I need any more right?). The thing is, I just can't resist! Ever since I got my first set of Real Techniques Brushes, I just knew I would eventually end up getting the whole line. Lo and behold, slowly but surely my brush collection is expanding. The most recent additions to my Real Techniques collection are the Expert Face Brush and the Setting Brush. Not surprisingly, I have already grown fond of them as they have quickly been incorporated into my daily makeup routine.

The Expert Face Brush is really great to use with liquid or powder foundation, and I also like to use it to contour my face. Because the bristles are so densely packed, it really buffs and blends the product in perfectly. The Setting Brush on the other hand is great to use with a powder to set your base makeup  and is especially practical for the under eye area. I also like this brush to highlight right above my cheekbones, under my brow bones, as well as on my cupid's bow. What I love so much about these brushes is that despite being named for a specific use, there are so many other ways to make good use out of them. I also have to mention how incredibly soft these brushes are - they are really high quality and do not shed one bit!

I get my Real Techniques brushes from It is an official international distributor of the UK-based brush line created by celebrity makeup artist Samantha Chapman. With coupon code FFM227 applied at checkout, you can get $10 off your entire order if you spend over $40 on the website, or $5 off if you spend less than $40. The prices are in $US dollars, so you will not be paying more for the products like on other websites that sell them. International shipping through Global Priority Mail by DHL is also a flat rate at $4, which is really reasonable in my opinion. This website also sells EcoTools, another line of brushes that I have been loving and that is really affordable and amazing quality, just like the Real Techniques brushes. I just recently discovered that the website also sells E.L.F. Cosmetics as well as Physician's Formula... I already have a wishlist ready to be fulfilled!
