Not very long ago (I guess), Samantha (Sam) launch her own brush line, called Real Techniques. Made with ultra smooth taklon bristles which is synthetic, meaning you can use these brushes for cream and powder. The brushes were instantly getting much love from everyone, so I decided I'm gonna get one.
The first one I got was the stippling brush. Oh one thing I should mention, they're color coded. So the orange ones were meant to be used for the face, like foundation and powder. The pink ones are for the cheeks, and the purple ones are for the eyes. Genius. But it's not like they're carved in stones, you can always use them on your own preference.
The stippling brush meant to be used for blushes, but I see the Pixiwoo sisters use it a lot to apply foundation. So I use them for both. This brush helps you to get a flawless finish, by stippling it on the face, dabbing the product so it blends well with the skin and didn't look like you're piling on makeup. I really love the stippling brush, and I think this is one of the most wanted brush of all the Real Techniques collection. I can see why.
After being in love with the stippling brush for a couple of months, I decided I want to get another one. So I went for the core collection.
The set contains 4 brushes to help you achieve flawless base. Description of each brushes are on the back of the box which is really helpful.
Buffing brush: To apply foundation. Cream, liquid, powder, or any kind of foundation. Buff the product into the skin, so it blends well. We never want a streaky foundation.
Detailer brush: Tiny little brush to conceal spots, or to apply lipstick. I love to use this to apply eyeshadow under the eyes. Whichever you prefer.
Pointed foundation brush: To build custom coverage of foundation on some areas. If you need more coverage around the lips, which usually a bit red for many people, use this brush. It's also great to apply concealer under the eyes to hide dark circles.

Contour brush: This one is probably my favorite. The size and shape is perrrrfect for contouring.
I really really love these brushes, they're super soft and did their job amazingly well for an affordable price. Check the Real Techniques website on www.realtechniques.com for more info. Hope it helps!
