Real Techniques : Nic's Picks

A few months ago, one of my favorite drugstore brushes had this limited edition release. First, was Sam's Picks (which I will do a review after this) and after a few months, they released Nic's Picks. Real Techniques is a brand of synthetic brushes launched by the Chapman sisters - Sam and Nic Chapman, the Pixiwoo sisters. They are makeup artist by profession aside from making youtube videos under the channel name Pixiwoo! I love them so much, I learned a lot of makeup application tips and tricks. I was so excited when I received a package from a great seller on ebay and can't wait to open it. I bought two sets by the way hehe. And here they are. 

The brushes are carefully placed on a beautiful soft foam that had this lovely decoration. 

At the back of the package, on the left side you'll see the Pixiwoo sisters and on the right side you'll see the brushes that are included as well as their use.

Each brush is labeled with the "Real Techniques by Sam and Nic" on one side and the name of the brush on the other side. (And each brush label have different color by the way). The color of the handles of the brushes are different  - has the silver covering with a rubber like on the end of the handle but the shape is also different from the permanent ones. A straight cylindrical shape while from their permanent lines have a wide shape in the very end for it to stand alone.

First, the Cheek Brush  I love this brush. One of the exclusive brush included. A round tip, tapered brush and pinched at the center. A perfect size on your cheek. You can use this for applying blush and bronzer for contouring.

Next, the Duo-Fiber Face Brush  I was so glad that they included in this set a duo fiber one. You probably know this came from their Duo-Fiber brushes line. The one with a white color on their handles.  Best for applying cream products, pigments and blending application.

Next one, the Angled Shadow Brush  This is another one of the exclusive limited edition brush that is a perfect brush for applying eyeshadow on the crease and you can also use this for applying a setting powder underneath on your eye area. Or for highlight application on the tops of your cheekbones.

The Base Shadow Brush  you all know that this came from their permanent line but different color of the handle. Perfect for applying and blending eyeshadows.

And lastly, the  Eyeliner Brush   The third and last exclusive brush included in this set which if you notice a lot smaller and thinner in size compared to their brow brush from the permanent brush. A much more precise in applying gel or eyeshadow on your brows or upper and lower lashline.

Tell me if you have this set of brushes from Real Techniques.
