I've always been a massive fan of the Chapman sisters, and absolutely love their you tube channel. I've heard so many amazing things about Samantha Chapman's Real Techniques brushes, and I thought it was about time that I got my hands on them!
I was really after a foundation and powder brush, which separately retail at around £9.99. I then saw this brush set retailing at £21.99. This seemed much better value, as you get four brushes and a case/stand. The Core Collection contains Detailer Brush, perfect for covering perfection and applying lipstick; a Pointed Foundation Brush to build coverage; a Buffing Brush for full coverage of powder and mineral foundation; and a Contour Brush to apply highlighter to contour.
The brushes are so soft and light. I also find that you don't get any stray brush hairs, which sometimes happens with other make up brushes. I've used every brush, and so far I'm really impressed. I have to say that the pointed foundation brush is a real winner for me. I have quite large pores,and I think my skin looks so dewy when applying foundation with this brush.
I think this a great brush collection for those wanting to get more experienced in applying make up, but also for those who are already experienced but want to expand their collection. You can also visit www.realtechniques.com to watch step-by-step tutorials of how to use the brushes.
You can purchase the Core Collection, retailing at £21.99 from Boots.
