      Comments about Real Techniques Core Collection:

      This is a nice brush set that comes with all the necessary brushes for applying face makeup. I would say the brushes are a little bit above average quality and a fair price for what your getting. The brushes did "shed" a little bit. I found that washing them solved this problem. Overall I am pleased with this purchase and get great use out of it!

        The contour brush and buffing brush are awesome, but the bristles on the pointed foundation brush weren't thick enough for me. The price is worth it for the three good brushes though!

          These brushes are great, they apply and blend product well. The best part is that they're actually synthetic fibers, so totally no animal hair. The brush itself has a great hand feel, and the fibers themselves are soft but firm enough to blend well. Ive had a lot of brushes come apart with cleaning as well, but these have been made well.

                          I have bought other more expensive brushes where the handles came off soon after purchasing and bristles would fall out frequently. These brushes have neither problem. Great case to travel or store them in as well.

                                Can this detailer brush be used to apply eyeshadow? Or will it not grab a powder eyeshadow and is meant for only liquids? Thanks

                                  While both are designed as finishing brushes, their brush head size and shape differ, so they offer different functions:

                                  The Setting Brush has a smaller, pointed shaped head for precision. This is great for setting under eye concealer, getting into the “hard to reach” areas, and highlighting the cheekbones.

                                  The Contour Brush in the Core Collection has a larger head than the setting brush. It also differs with a rounded head and is dense for applying more product. It can be used with darker powders for contouring effects as well as highlighting powders for the cheekbones.

                                  These brushes feature synthetic (artificial) bristles.
                                  Detailer brush: precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition
                                  Pointed foundation brush: use with liquid foundation to build custom coverage
                                  Buffing brush: ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation
                                  Contour brush: delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish
