BEAUTY HAUL ~ Real Techniques Brushes


Core Collection & Blush BrushCopy of Miracle Complexion Sponge

I am having a hard time believing we are in December right now. Where has this year gone really? 😐

I did a haul in October and because November was just one massive blur I am going to share whatever I got in today’s post. I was talking about building basic brushes collection in the start of the year and I had my eyes on MAC mostly but after trying a few of their brushes I was not impressed and decided to look elsewhere. I am still in that stage where I am figuring out if I like makeup for real or will I be abandoning it after a while so I don’t want to get really spendy yet. Real Techniques sounded like a great option for brushes and after reading such rave reviews I thought to give it a go.

The first thing I ordered was their Core Collection. It’s a set of 4 face brushes of different kind. You get a pointed foundation brush, foundation buffing brush, contouring brush and definer brush. I have given them all a go except for the foundation brush and find them nice to use. They have been through a wash too and damn do I have things to say about them. You will just have to wait for a full fledge review, sorry peepz! So far my favorite is the buffing brush. I have read some saying it’s similar to Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki but I don’t own that one yet so I can’t compare. I do have my eyes on it so prolly a comparison will happen someday very soon. 😉

Next I bought two separate brushes – Blush Brush and Powder Brush. They are good too and do what they are meant too.

I would admit one thing; I was expecting the brushes to be super soft and though they were soft but not as soft as I had them in my mind. Sigma and MAC has set my brushes softness standard pretty high, ha.

Then I got one of their Miracle Complexion Sponge. I would sum this purchase up in Chandler’s baffled voice and expressions ‘OH. MY. GOD.’ I mean that. There are so many beauty blenders/sponges around and I never gave them a serious thought but after using this one I want to try every single one from every brand because I truly am blown away by the awesome result. I will do an in depth review soon, promise.

I also got Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel (Click here for first impression post!). It cleans the brushes super quick. I have tried it a few times and it’s been great.

So this concludes my haul. In case you’re from Muscat and curious where I got all the above mentioned stuff from, it from an Instagram page @MakeupMedleyMuscat. They have RT stuff at the best prices. They also have other brands that are not easily available in Oman.

I will see you guys in my next post!

Byee ❤

A Little Update from My Makeup Brush Collection~


 I am currently trying to build a basic brush collection (Read – every single brush I can get my hands on 😛 ) for myself and investing in brands that are going to last me a very long time and do the job real well. So far I have bought MAC 168 Contouring Brush and MAC 217 Blending Brush.

As you guys must have guessed from the title, I bought another makeup brush. This time I went for Sigma 3DHD Kabuki Brush. I am a fan of applying foundation with my fingers but when it comes to a well blended and flawless finish, you need to invest in a good face brush. So far this brush has been amazing. Its soft, sturdy and has such a unique shape that makes it easy to reach places you’d have to reach with your fingers only – like corners of the nose. The application has been real good though I need a lot of practice with it as I have no experience with face brushes.

I plan to do a in depth review of MAC brush and this one together soon, so stay tuned for that. Also, I would appreciate if you guys can suggest me which brush I should buy next. I am looking for a blush brush and I was thinking of Bobbi Brown or MAC. I want to go for Bobbi Brown because of course I want to own a brush from there too, ha.

Lots of Love, 🙂
