Real Techniques Filtered Face Set Review and Photos

Real Techniques Filtered Face Set
I think I'm in the majority vote when I say I'm a total fan and addict when it comes to Real Techniques Brushes. For me, this brand has gone from strength to strength over the years with its vast selection of on-trend and functional brushes to suit every skill set and budget. I know I've certainly recommended a fair few friends and family's various RT brushes throughout the years!

Today I'm sharing with you this stunning Real Techniques Filterest Face Set which was released for Christmas 2017. So here are my thoughts...
Price
The Real Techniques Filtered Face Set retailed for £80 which sounds like a lot but this did go on offer for £40 over the Christmas period and if you weigh up how much you get in here then this is pretty good value for money. Inside you'll find 8 Brushes, 3 Sponges and a Storage Container for your brushes to sit.

Unfortunately this particular set is no longer available, however, most of these brushes can be purchased separately (minus the pretty duochrome finish), so any I do find I will link down below for you guys.

1. Buffing Brush - I use this for foundation but it's also great for mineral foundation. The Buffing Brush is available in the Core Collection Kit here*.

2. Contour Brush - As the name suggests this is great for contouring, highlight and even blush. Again this can be found in the Core Collection Kit here*.

3. Domed Shadow Brush - Perfect for applying shadow to the whole lid. This is very similar to the Base Shadow Brush found in the Eye Shade and Blend Set here.

4. Duo-Fiber Eye Brush - A great brush for blending and applying shadow in the crease. This Eye Brush is available as part of the Duo Fiber Kit here*.

5. Shading Brush - Another shadow brush which is also wonderful for concealer also. This is available within the Enhanced Eye Set here.

6. Setting Brush - Again as the name suggests this is the perfect sized brush for setting foundation or concealer with powder or you could also use this with highlighters. The Setting Brush is available to buy on its own here*.

7. Lip Brush - I love this not only as a lip brush but as an eyeliner brush! This is available within the Lip Colour and Blur Brush Set here*.

8. Stippling Brush - A good one for applying cream blush or even mineral foundation. The Stippling Brush can be purchased alone here*.

Miracle Complexion Sponge (Orange)* - This iconic sponge is one of my favourites damp as it helps gives your foundation an even flawless finish.

Miracle Sculpting Sponge (Pink)* - This performs like the Miracle Complexion Sponge but is cut differently for a more precise application.

Miracle Mini Eraser Sponge (Purple)* - I adore using this damp to blend out concealer under the eyes, nose or anywhere you need to erase a mistake.

Brush Cup - You can use this to store your brushes in or I use it in my bathroom draws as it's a great size to fit in small and awkward spaces.

Packaging
There's no doubt that these are visually stunning, but more importantly, there is a great, versatile mix of brushes that can be used in so many different ways.

Application
I found all of these brushes easy to use and they for sure helped apply my makeup with ease thanks to their super soft bristles. These are synthetic and I have to say the quality of the brushes has definitely improved throughout the years.

The sponges are also as I mentioned above great to use damp as they just help blend especially concealer and foundation so easily and quickly.
Overall Thoughts
Finally, if you're in the market for some new brushes or you're wanting to build up your first collection of make-up brushes then the Real Techniques family is a great place to start. Large versatile kits like these don't come around often and they're great to snap up at Christmas time as they usually go on offer for a limited period. However, if you're after some of Real Techniques current collections and kits then I've linked down below some affordable sets that are on sale now as well as RT newest Limited Edition collection of stunning brushes called 'Brush Crush' which are available from Superdrug here and Ulta below.

I award the Real Techniques Filtered Face Set a 4.8 out of 5
