Very similar to Real Techniques brushes...,
This review is from: Make Up Brushes, USpicy Professional Cosmetics 6-Piece Makeup Brush Set with Gift Box Kits (Golden) (Misc.)
These are so lovely to look at and to use and the packaging is very pretty and stylish. They're very similar to my real techniques brushes and give equally good results so you'd be saving a bit of money by getting these instead.
Very, very soft to use and they have a nice weight to them which makes them comfortable in the hand. They're just really nice brushes. I got them in the gold and they're very pretty but the purple looks just as great in the photos so it was just personal preference.
I don't always use my brushes for the application area they're made for but if you like to know which brush goes where, there's a handy leaflet in the box to show what they're good for.
They're usable straight out of the box but I like to wash my brushes before I use them for the first time, just to make sure any stray hairs are seen to before I try them out. I've had no shedding with mine though (either before or after washing) and they seem like really well made brushes. I just used a tiny drop of baby shampoo on each brush and then rinsed them really well and popped them in a brush rack to dry and they came up good as new (and it removed a bit of that 'new brush' smell too).
Very pleased with these and would recommend them to anyone. Competitively priced and well made. Bargain.
