I'M LOVING... REAL TECHNIQUES BRUSHES (INCLUDING OFFER)

 
STARTER KIT //  CORE COLLECTION // POWDER BRUSH  - $40 (£25)

For the past two years the make up brushes I've been using have been from Sigma and they have served me well but i thought it was finally time to invest in a new set. Unless you've been living under a rock you'll know the hype surround the Real Techniques brushes and i thought now would be a better time as any to finally get my paws on some and try them for myself. These brushes are actually quite expensive and i know you get what you pay for but still i just couldn't justify it. Then i stumbled across another blogger (sorry i can't remember who) doing a review on these brushes after buying them from the USA (with a 10% discount) i knew that's where i needed to go. 

iHerb is a website i'd never heard of and considering the products they usually sell i was surprised to see the Real Technique brushes there but hey not complaining. If i spent over $40 i received 10% off which saved me $11.80 including shipping making these brushes altogether a mere $40.17 which in turn saved me upwards of £30 if i was to buy these in the UK. So not bad huh? Shipping took a couple of weeks which is standard and so far I've no complaints at all and i already want to go back and buy the rest of the collection.

After purchasing these beauties an email popped in my inbox with a unique code that gives first time buyers 10% off too  (or %5 for orders under $40) which is pretty sweet if you ask me. Just use the code LDT423 at the checkout and et voilà!
 
Let me know if you already own these brushes or decide to purchase them as i'd love to hear your thoughts!

  17. I'm making an order on there as we speak! I'm buying the starter set, powder brush and stippling brush. For all that it comes to about £25 which is insanely good considering in boots the starter set is £20 alone! Thank you for the website and the code!

  18. RT brushes have definately been my miracle product of 2012 and I now favour them on myself and in photoshoots over my other brushes. I've found all their brushes to be great but I'm especially in love with the expert face brush, buffing brush and stippling brush. Can't beat them!

  24. I've been putting off getting these for ages as they're slightly on the pricey side, especially when sold in the UK. Really persuaded to buy these off iHerb, the stippling brush and core collection are calling my name! x

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love my Real Technique's brushes! I have the core collection and there's just nothing softer to use on the face. I'm the opposite way though, I'm yet to try some Sigma brushes!

  40. My boyfriend got me the core collection for xmas (he must have done his research as I had never mentioned them!) and they are so good, my favourite is the buffing brush which I use for both liquid foundation or mineral powder depending which one I'm wearing that day and it works brilliantly for both Xx

  41. I purchased a foundation brush not too long ago and Its turned out to be my favourite brush by miles! I paid £11 for it and its definitely worth it! x

  42. Ahhh wish I had seen this sooner! I've just spent my Boots advantage points on a new set! It's so frustrating that in the UK we have to pay through the nose for everything!

    Thanks for the heads up - I may buy some more as back up! :)

  45. Oh wow! I've been off your blog for a while but came over & saw this post! I found these brushes in a home store here in the US....it was weird but I needed new brushes and these were pretty affordable so I picked them up.

    I LOVE THEM! I didn't know they were an awesome brand because I usually just pick up cheapo brushes...but these are great! I'd love to have the whole set. Right now I only have a few. Thanks for sharing!

  46. I have nearly all the brushes and I prefer them to my MAC ones!

  50. Thanks so much for this - I just spent £35 and got the same brushes you did plus 3 grocery items we can't get in the UK! I've been wanting to try the Real Technique brushes for ages and at half price I could say no. Plus if you spend over $60 you get 15% off :)
