Love the case too

By Drpeppertoo

from Kansas

Comments about Real Techniques Travel Essentials:

This is a great set of three brushes, and I really like the case and how you can stand it up instead of laying your brushes on the counter. And I'm really happy that they added a couple extra places to put other brushes too, because I like to add one more eyeshadow brush.

          I've only used these brushes for a week but so far they'r great for the value. They're soft and they apply the product evenly. I feel like I save more product using these brushes compared to a set I have bought a week ago by ELF.

            These are the 3 basic brushes = easy to travel with, just like its name. The price is not really expensive and the brushes fit the price - not the best but good to use for traveling. However the multi tasks brush were being "messed up" when they shipped to me (I guess because of the shipment).

                    I have fallen in love with the real techniques brushes and this travel kit is great. I love that you can turn the case into a standing case to pull your brushes from so they are not laying on the countertop. I use these all the time and have added some of my other brushes as well.

                        This stores so easily I can put everything away in seconds and it even fits in my purse. The two smaller brushes seem to have tighter bristles but I like how soft and loose the larger one is.

                            Hi Nataly,

                            The Essential Foundation brush is not a brush that is sold separately, unfortunately. But, all of our kits have such great value that hopefully you'll find one you like here! :)

                            The Essential Foundation brush and the Pointed Foundation brush in both of these kits are similar in nature. Since the Travel Essentials kit gives you one brush for eye, one brush for base and one brush for finish, this Essential Foundation brush in this kit is built to be an all-in-1 for your foundation. It has a larger brush head with slightly more bristles than the one in the Core Collection. It also has a slightly more pointed tip to help better apply concealer.

                            Hope that helps!

                            Rather than the Multi-task brush, which works best for application of powder-consistency products, we recommend using the Essential foundation brush to perfectly apply liquid foundation. You can definitely use the Multi-task brush to apply and buff setting powder over your liquid foundation!
