So I crumbled and bought the Real Techniques Core Collection. I've been frustrated with applying my make up from the little brushes that come with the make up I own. These were recommended by several blogs in the past and I wanted something with quality and a nice price tag. I saw Liz Earle are now doing make up brushes but one of their brushes was the price of this set!
I'm looking forward to seeing the difference a good brush will make to the look of my make up, I think a good base will mean a great over all look.
Over all first impression is they're super soft, love the colour of them and they're in this perfect little carry case.
