Real Techniques Brushes & Bloom Remedies purchases


I received some Amazon vouchers for my birthday. I was keen to try Real Techniques brushes as I've heard so many rave reviews.  I picked up the Core Collection for a flawless base (£14.66) and the Stippling Brush (£7.99).

The Core Collection contains:

Detailer Brush: can be used for concealer or as a lip brush.
Pointed Foundation Brush: use with liquid foundation/build custom coverage.
Buffing Brush - for mineral foundation or powder
Contour Brush - for highlighter

Stippling Brush - for foundation for an airbrushed look.

So far I've tried the buffing brush & the Stippling brush and I'm in love! - don't know what too me so long to try them.  Do you use these brushes?  What are your favourites?

My second purchase was some more Bloom Remedies body oils - hugely into body oils at the moment.  See my recent review here.


I picked:

Easy-Love Organic Body Oil (50ml - £8.99) - this is scented with essential oils of Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Neroli, Sandalwood and Patchouli.  

Sleep-Easy Organic Body Oil (50ml - £6.99) - I already own the bath oil in this scent - so looking forward to using them together for a restful night's sleep.

Marie sent me a sample of Organic Eye Make Up Remover* which is scented with rose - I've only used this a couple of times so far and I am totally in love with it.  Removes all eye make up, leaving the eye area clean.  It is non sting and no greasy film is left over the eyes.  A best seller - I can see why!  Full review will follow.

note: these purchase were made before the Spending Ban kicked in!

  1. The powder brush and blush brush are excellent. My favourite ones out of my collection. I am looking at getting the expert face brush after my spending ban. X

  2. RT brushes are brilliant! I use the bruffing & contour brushes from that set and bought the purple set (can't remember the name) for the delux crease brush. It's really good for concealer.

  4. I love the brushes they are my favourites, my Sigma, Bobbi Brown and MAC brushes are stuck in the cupboard because I use my RT all of the time now. I have both the orange and purple sets and extra powder and blush brushes.

  10. I'd not seen the RT brushes until they were mentioned on a post I did about BDellium tools. I like the flat bottom idea - how stable are they? x
