    Comments about Real Techniques Starter Kit:

    After going through several brands of brushes, Eco Tools, Basics, lower end brands (because I refuse to pay $40+ for a high end brush),etc, I've finally found a line of brushes that is not only soft, durable & gets the job done, but doesn't shed! Plus, they are so affordable & the quality is exc5! Never using another brand but Real Techniques!!

        I love this set! I had to have it after buying the Real Techniques Core set. The brushes are so soft and they do everything I need. I had no idea how much better my make up applications would be with the proper tools! The folding case is super handy as well!

                Comments about Real Techniques Starter Kit:

                I had to replace all of my eye make up brushes recently and bought this starter kit. I am very pleased with this purchase. I love both the lid and crease brushes. I still have not used the small eyeliner brush, it doesn't really go with the type of eyeliner I use. Very pleased with the stand option and storage option. Great brushes!

                      • Q:

                        I'm a beginner to eye makeup, and I was wondering, are these brushes good for beginners?

                        How do you clean these brushes, and how often do you need to clean them?

                        Do these brushes last quite a long time, do they shed easily and do they break easily?

                          Starter Kit brushes are excellent for eye makeup beginners! We recommend watching Real Techniques founder and makeup artist Sam Chapman's tutorial video:
                          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKMwwJ8z7Kw

                          These are high quality brushes that provide professional results. They won't break easily or shed excessively.

                          Clean your makeup brushes once weekly using a gentle brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo. Work a lather into the bristles and rinse with cool water until the water runs clear. Lay flat to dry. You can use a brush cleaner spray in between uses to keep brushes clean in between shampoos, too!

                          Yes, each brush is labeled on its handle. We recommend shampooing brushes once weekly with a brush shampoo or mild hair shampoo. You can also spray brushes with brush cleaner after daily use to keep them clean between shampoos (recommended for acne-prone skin).

                          This set includes 5 brushes specifically for eye makeup application. For brushes for both face and eye makeup application, you may prefer Real Techniques Core Collection (Item #: 2229998), which includes foundation, powder, detail/shadow, and contour/blush brushes:
