As you all know, I am a big fan of Real Techniques brushes. They are all high quality, low cost brushes. A few of my Real Techniques brushes are in heavy rotation in my stash, which says a lot considering I have well over 100 brushes. Nic’s Picks is a limited edition set that has 3 exclusive brushes and it is just in time for the holidays.
Each of these brushes are amazing and they feature the duo-fiber look to them, but only one seems to have the actual duo-fiber brushes. But basically, it is a collection of Nic’s favorite brushes. With these 5 brushes you can essentially complete any makeup look you desire.
Duo-fiber Face Brush – This brush is for lightweight application and blending of face powder and pigments. I personally would use it for applying liquids, too!
Cheek Brush – This brush is designed to evenly apply makeup across the cheekbones for a more dramatic finish. It is a perfect blush brush.
Angled Shadow Brush – This brush is perfectly cut for layering eyeshadow into the crease. I honestly thing it is the perfect size for highlighting, as well.
Eyeliner Brush – This firm, angled head delivers optimal control. That is definily what you want along the lash line.
Base Shadow Brush – This brush delivers smooth, flawless application of color. It reminds me of the infamous MAC 217 brush, which I use to apply eyeshadow everywhere: the lid, crease, outer v, and the lower lash line. It is a do-it-all brush.
Do I recommend Real Techniques Nic’s Picks? Absolutely. Limited edition sets like this are always affordably priced and the special cuts in this set make it well worth it. You can find them at Amazon and even the brand’s website. If you are looking for more brushes from Real Techniques I would recommend trying Ulta.
