Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Kit
One thing I can never have too many of are makeup brushes. They get used so much and I don't have time to clean them every single day, it's important to have back ups of your favourite brushes. Some of my favourites I use every day are from Real Techniques, so when I saw the new Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Kit I had to pick it up! I was after some new brushes anyway and I hadn't tried the Miracle Complexion Sponge yet, I couldn't afford not to pick up the Everyday Essentials Kit for only £19.99!

I'm always after new foundation brushes, I use these everyday to try and hide my less than average acne troubled skin! It's so important to use clean brushes, sometimes it's easier just to buy new ones as I can't be dealing with washing brushes every couple of days! I was on the hunt for a new foundation and powder brush when I saw the Everyday Essentials Kit had everything and more. I love my original Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and the Expert Face Brush 200 in this set seems to be the bigger, cuter version of it! It's slightly bigger than the original and I love it. The bristles are super soft and firm making it so easy to blend in without leaving streaks. I love the tapered shape, it's the perfect size for all over as well as under the eyes and around the nose etc.
The next brush in this set is one that I've loved for so many years, the Real Techniques Blush Brush 400. This was the first 'proper' blusher brush I bought back in the day and I loved it so much. The shape is perfect for the apples of your cheeks. The brush itself is so soft and fluffy, it makes applying blusher so enjoyable. You can really create a lovely natural even look with this brush. I'm glad to have it back in my collection, in it's new prettier package.
I've been after a new highlight brush for so long. I've ben using the same Real Techniques Setting Brush 403 everyday for the past four years - that's not normal! Finally I got my hands on a new one thanks to this set. This little brush is the perfect size and shape for illuminating your look and applying powder highlight to the cheekbones, under brow, cupids bow and all the little delicate spaces on your face. It's soft and fluffy which makes dusting on powder a dream.
The last brush is the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease 300 brush. Again this is one of my most loved eyeshadow brushes and I'm so glad I have a third one to add to my collection! I love the brush for blending eyeshadow in the crease. It's the perfect size to get in to the crease and fluffy enough to blend shades together with minimal effort.
The last tool in the kit is the Miracle Complexion Sponge. I've always been a brush kind of girl and have been very skeptical about trying sponges. As it came in the kit and was amazing value, I thought this would be the perfect time to try this out. I tried it dry and honestly, I didn't love it. I found it to be hard work to use, it feels like much more effort than a brush and I feel like I had to apply more foundation than usual. I think it's because I do have a lot of blemishes and a lot to cover up. I don't think I would like any sponge to be honest, because of the way my skin is at the moment. I just don't really understand how you could get full coverage with a sponge! I might try using it wet and see if it makes a difference.

Although I wasn't into the Miracle Complexion Sponge, I'm obsessed with these brushes. They have always been my go to everyday brushes anyway, so I'm all over having a new pretty little set of them. I think this set is amazing value at £19.99, that's the same price as just two of these brushes put together. Although I personally don't really like using sponges, I'm really glad I finally got round to trying the Miracle Complexion Sponge. Maybe when my skin is a bit more clear, I may feel differently about the sponge.

The Real Techniques Everyday Essentials Kit would be the perfect Christmas gift for any makeup lover in your life this year.

Are you a sponge or brush kinda beauty?
