Designed with pro makeup artist Samantha Chapman, Real Techniques brushes combine high-tech materials with innovative design to make creating a pixel-perfect look easier than ever: Taklon bristles are ultra plush and smoother than the hair you'll find in other brushes. Since taklon is synthetic, it's 100% cruelty-free. The soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light, from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting. The color-coded system corresponds to the key steps of makeup application so you can create a flawless base (copper), enhanced eyes (purple), and the perfect finish like a pro (pink). Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish. The collection is suitable for a wide range of products and every makeup need – from powders, creams, and liquids to mineral makeup, highlighter, and shimmer. Brush names on the handles make for easy reference when creating your favorite look.
Hand cut hair design allows for even and streak free application of makeup

I purchased this brush set at Ulta probably six months ago and in all honesty, I use at least one of these brushes every single time I put on makeup (5-6 times per week). The brushes are great quality. The bristles are super soft and they're synthetic so they don't soak up products and are especially great at applying any creamy products (cream eye shadows, concealer, etc). I wash mine 2-3 times per week and they don't shed at all and have kept their shapes beautifully.
I find the base shadow and the crease brushes to be absolutely essential to my cosmetics routine. The base shadow brush is similar to the MAC 217, but slightly smaller, which I love. It is so useful! And while I rarely use the crease brush on my crease, I use it all the time as well. I use the crease brush to apply/blend cream products. I use it on cream eyeshadows, cream eye bases, eye primers, concealers, etc. I use the accent brush less often, but it is great for any type of detailed application. When I do need and angled brush, I prefer the Real Techniques brush to far more expensive brushes from MAC and Sephora. The pixel point brush is one that I use very rarely only because I use eye liners with built in applicators, but again, if you needed a precision brush, it would do nicely.
All in all, these brushes are a GREAT deal. A single MAC brush would cost more than all 5 of these brushes and in my experience, not hold up as well. I love these brushes and I really wish Amazon would restock this line so I could purchase some more brushes.
I thought brushes of this quality were way beyond my budget. Even when I saw that Samantha and Nicola Chapman (makeup artists known as Pixiwoo on YouTube) had produced and were using their own line of brushes I didn't think I'd be able to afford them....then I researched the price her on Amazon....and now they're mine!
These are well constructed brushes, all synthetic and vegan friendly. They come in a wonderful holder that serves as a stand, and quite simply I couldn't be without them.
Give yourself a treat and get these.and your makeup application will improve beyond imagination. A bargain at twice the price so my fave buy of this year.
If you're like me and you're not a pro at applying eye makeup then these are for you! I've been practicing with these & my eyes look a lot better than when I use to use those little spongy tips. Ladies, you'll be happy you bought these.
