Real Techniques Your Eyes Stater Set


A few days before my spending ban I was stalking iHerb and came across the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman brushes! Much to my dismay, the face brushes were out of stock so I hurried the Your Eyes Starter Set into my cart and quickly purchased it! And after a few fretful weeks later, wondering if it would show up, I received them! My beautiful, amazing, Holy Grail standard Real Techniques brushes! At least that's what I've heard! 


I love that the back of the box gives you a quick description on what each brush is for. After all, this is a starter set, so instructions are kind of necessary!
And now some pictures of the gorgeous brushes...




From left to right: Base Shadow Brush, Deluxe Crease Brush, Accent Brush, Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush, Brown Brush



So as you can see, they are some pretty snazzy brushes! So what did I actually think of them after USING them?!

Base Shadow Brush
This is the second biggest brush. I use it for exactly that, and I really like it. It picks up product well and is easily cleaned!

Deluxe Crease Brush

This is the biggest brush (in case you couldn't tell!) and one of my favourites! I love using this to colour and also blend, as it's so big! Again, picks up product very well and cleans very easily!

Accent Brush
My favourite out of all of them, this is the small brush, the third one in the kit. This is perfect for creating the winged effect using eye shadow and for getting in under the bottom eyelash!

Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush
I've tried better eyeliner brushes if I'm going to be honest, but this one is far from bad! It does give you the freedom to create either a thin or thicker line with the same brush, and holds product extremely well. I did find this one a tad harder to clean, but otherwise it's a fine addition!

Brown Brush
I can't really comment on this too much as I never do my eyebrows, since I have bangs. But this seems like a very nice brush and it's very sturdy, so I'm sure anyone would love it!

Overall, I think this is a great set! As I said, I purchased mine from iHerb for $17.99, (use my code for $5 off your first purchase: 
PIH245) although if you're feeling impulsive you could head into Priceline and buy this for a whopping $39.99. 

Beautiful blogger Sue from 
Voyage dans le temps also posted an excellent post about her recent purchase, we received them about the same time! So make sure you check out her post too!

  2. oh wow i was looking at that little eyeliner one and thought the shape wouldn't good for an eyeliner cos it looks a little flimsy and not stiff for a clean edge of eyeliner on your eye

    but yea, priceline is soooo exp!

  3. I saw these for the first time in Priceline on Sunday and almost purchased them but decided against it so i could do some research first and im so glad i did cos i just put an order through iHerb for the eye starter kit, core kit, stippling brush and blush brush for around the same price as one kit in Priceline! crazy!
    btw, how long did u have to wait for it to arrive? x

    1. Oh thank goodness you researched! That's brilliant that you got it all for the same price too :)
      I waited just over 2 weeks, but when I got it, mine had been opened by customs, which is probably why there was a delay... I've heard a few people get theirs in under 2 weeks! So hopefully you'll be lucky :)
