So it's been about a year since the Real Techniques brushes hit Australian shores and still, I always buy mine from iHerb for much cheaper. You can read about my first two hauls here and here. This time I purchased the limited edition Duo Fibre brushes using my accumulated reward points credits!
This collection does not come with the 2-in-1 Case & Stand that the other sets come with. Instead they are housed in a foam-like case. The brushes are made of 'ultra plush taklon bristles'.
Face Brush: 'for lightweight application and blending of face powder or pigments'. I like this brush for applying powder blush or bronzer. Personally I find that this is not dense enough for pressed powder (which I would have liked).
Contour Brush: 'for controlled contouring and sculpting'. This one is great for highlighting or contour bronzing! Perfect size and probably my favourite brush of the set.
Eye Brush: 'add finishing touches to the eyes'. This looks like a typical blending brush for eyeshadow, however I do find it slightly prickly and not as fluffy or soft as the other RT eye brushes I own. This was quite a let down but I may try this for concealer or contouring down my nose instead.
While I do like this collection and I'll definitely get use out of these brushes, I was a bit disappointed. I feel like these aren't of the same calibre as their previous sets and quite average on the whole. The original range impressed me much more than these limited edition brushes!
These duo fibre brushes will be available for one year so be quick if you do want to get your hands on them. I am not sure whether they are available in Australia, but for those interested, my code BOJ355 for $5 off your first order or $10 off orders over $40 is still active from iherb.com!
