Real Techniques MultiTech Collection Brush Set

Real Techniques MultiTech Collection Brush Set

I’ve been a Real Techniques fan ever since they first launched in 2011 as I’d watched the Pixiwoo YouTube channel for a good few years. I still own a majority of the brushes I bought back in 2011, and remember I purchased mine through iHerb as they were only available in Boots stores and they were constantly out of stock due to high demand. I really do love the Real Techniques face brushes, but I’ve always felt that their range were missing good quality eye makeup brushes as they only had a couple of decent eyeshadow brushes within the main Real Techniques collection. When the Real Techniques MultiTech Collection launched, I was instantly excited as the Real Techniques MultiTech Collection Brush Set looked like it contained a great set of eye makeup brushes as well as brush holder.

When the Real Techniques MultiTech Collection Brush Set first launched, it retailed for £29.99 which I personally felt was a little too expensive for four makeup brushes even though the set includes a brush holder. However the price dropped to £22.49 a few months ago so I decided that £22.49 was more reasonable, especially as I knew I wasn’t particularly bothered by the brush holder within the set.

The holder is a chunky silver metal box which I personally think is quite ugly, and for some strange reason they put a bar in the middle of the holder which really restricts how many brushes the holder can hold. I just don’t use it as I don’t see the point in keeping the four brushes inside the holder away from the rest of my collection, and I like to keep my brushes inside a drawer so they don’t collect dust from the atmosphere. I really wish they’d do the set without the holder and lower the price as the holder isn’t the best quality anyway; it’s not finished very well, with unsightly rough edges and marks.

The brushes have white plastic handles and black metal ferrules, with the handles thickening out towards the end. They don’t feel as luxurious as their other brushes in my opinion as they feel quite lightweight and cheap in comparison to the metal handles of the original collection and white isn’t the most practical for makeup brushes. 

I like using the largest brush for blending my concealer and corrector in my under-eye area and the second largest brush for blending my transition shadow through my crease. The two smallest brushes are good for smudging colour along the lower lashline but I’d rather there was a brush between the Point S and Point XS brushes instead.

Overall I am really happy I managed to get the Real Techniques MultiTech Collection Brush Set whilst it was at a reduced price as I don’t think it’s worth anymore than £25 as the two smallest brushes are almost identical so it feels like it’s really a set of three brushes and a duplicate. I don’t think the brushes are my favourite Real Techniques brushes I’ve tried, but they’re still welcome additions to my collection.
