I was in Asda doing a late night shop yesterday and I walked down the beauty aisle just to check out if there were any bargains to be had. I happened to notice some Real Techniques brushes on a stand and had a quick look and was amazed at the prices. I picked up the Real Techniques Core Collection containing a detailer brush, pointed foundation brush, buffing brush and contour brush. This cost £11.57 (in Boots this retails for £21.99). I also picked up the Expert Face Brush for £4.96 (this brush costs £9.99 in Boots).
I have been meaning to pick up the Core Collection for a while, but could never justify spending over £20 for brushes that I don't really need, but for £12 I just could not resist. I already have the face brush, but I really like it so I thought it was well worth picking up another one. In the past I put my foundation on with my fingers, but found that I was always left with the foundation highlighting the dry patches on my skin. The face brush makes it really easy to apply my foundation and leaves me with a flawless finish, so I highly recommend it.
As well as the Core Collection, Asda were also selling the blush brush, the stippling brush and an eye shadow brush. These brushes were all between £5 and £6.50.
I can't wait to try the Core Collection, and I will write a review once I have used them. I also want to buy the new make up sponge from Real Techniques, but unfortunately, Asda did not sell this item, so I will pick it up next time I am in Boots.
