My love for Real Techniques is no secret I use these brushes for personal use and on clients, they have gone strong as ever some over 2 years and still in perfect condition. So when I heard there is a new limited edition set due to release called 'Nic's Picks' boy was I excited!

Here it is I received this set just yesterday! So I snapped away and got ready to type this post, boasting this new design with a steel-like handle with the traditional rubber-like end, I think the limited edition style has to be by far the best thing about this set I was instantly drawn to it, it almost gives a luxurious high end look to the brushes, the set also feature 3 new exclusive brushes which again is why I bought this set.

The Shadow Brush is my favourite for applying concealer as it has the perfect amount of lightweight bristles and again its perfect for applying eyeshadow bases of a cream texture, I previously already have one of these and needed to buy more due to the multi-purpose use.

The Cheek Brush is almost like a flat shaped blusher brush which makes it perfect to achieve a soft contour by using it on its side and for blusher use you just use it flat which gives you full control and applies blusher softly which means no more overly blusher'ed cheeks, a great addition!

The Eyeliner brush has the perfect stiffness to use with eyebrow powder and cream products, thats what I initially thought it was for and tuts exactly what I'll be using it for as I much prefer using thin eyeliner brushes for applying eyeliner as opposed to slanted brushes but again another great addition.

I already have the Duo Fibre brush which in all honesty I very rarely use I do however wish this was a more flat-top stippling/duo fibre brush so I could use this for applying highlighters but with slight more control.

Finally the Angled Shadow Brush this brush is perfect for achieving a soft cut crease it fits perfectly into the crease of the eye, it also works well all over the eye if you are going for a soft look, I know lots who prefer to use these types of brushes.

Brush set £29.95
