Just when I thought Real Techniques Sam’s Picks collection was my all-time favorite makeup brush collection, Real Techniques rolls out their limited edition Nick’s Picks collection. This 5-piece collection has everything you need for a quick makeup application; duo-fiber face brush for face powder or foundation, cheek brush (set exclusive) for blush or cream products, angled eyeshadow (set exclusive) brush to define your crease color, base eyeshadow brush for all over eyeshadow color, and the eyeliner brush (set exclusive) for detailed eyeliner applications.
Of course we can ohh and ahh over the sleek silver finish but this really is a nicely curated brush set. These brushes are cruelty-free, absolutely no shedding, and are well cut. They can compete with many high-end makeup brushes but priced to complete with many mass market retail brands but are what I like to call “pro-friendly”. I think you guys will particularly love the cheek brush. I love the Real techniques Blush Brush but the Cheek Brush has more bounce and density so it packs on more color.
