iHerb Customer Reviews
As for the Travel Essentials, I only have positive things to say about these brushes. All of the 4 are synthetic and come in a not-so-practical case, but hey, it's free!! About the brushes, I'd say that I have tried them with different textures and products and this is how they work for me: - Detailer brush: I use this brush for concealing only, it states in the box that could be used for lips as well, but it hasn't worked for me for this purpose. I have used it for small areas of my face that require concealing, such as breakouts, small scars from previous acne; but I wouldn't recomend it for under eye covering, as it leaves stripes on the application of the concealer and you have to go over it to blend, so it doubles the job. - Pointed foundation brush, I don't agree with this, as it is very small to use with foundation. However, it does a great job applying a highlighter or even concealing the under eye area; those are the ways I use this brush. - Buffing brush: this is my foundation brush, deffinitely!!! I loev how it feels on the sking and the finish it leaves once the foundation, bb cream, tinted moiturizer is applied, no stripes at all are seen and the application is even and I just love it, probably one of my favorites along with the multitask brush of the travel essentials kit. - Countour Brush: this one is perfect if you want to leave your face with a natural finish after using blush or bronzer, as you work on small areas and it belds the product quite well.
I adore Real techniques brushes - I have them ALL, plus several doubles. They are (or WERE) great quality brushes, cut so precisely, made from soft dense bristles and with lovely handles. I bought a second Core Collection set in May 2013 only to find some brushes with obvious manufacturing faults. I was very surprised and disappointed. Something has clearly gone wrong. Worse than that has been iHerb's total failure to address enquiries about it! I was literally told to email someone else (gee, thanks!) then the nominated department ignored the enquiry totally. They simply would not respond about it at all, no matter how many emails I sent. They took my money, sent a faulty product, and apparently just could not care less! I have to say I am shocked. It's my first black mark against iHerb. Up until now I have been a great fan of iHerb, recommending them to everyone. Now I am issuing warnings instead! :(

Great Brushes and great value! the buffing brush alone is worth getting the set for. I use it daily

I've owned this set for close to 4 years now and the brush heads are in perfect condition even after several hundreds of washes. They apply the product like a dream and are soft like when I first bought them. I find that I don't use the detail brush as much however the rest are put to good use. The only downside I found is that after so many years, the rubbery part of the brushes is starting to peel off despite not being exposed to water or extreme heat, and it makes the brushes seem a little cheap (on top of it, Real Techniques customer service did not provide a proper solution to this issue and suggested I just buy new brushes).

These brushes are my favourite, because they are really soft and easy to use. Make-up looks beautiful and blended with these brushes. It's a nice touch that a little case comes with them. iHerb has a really great price, here in my hometown these cost double price. Also there is a lot of youtube videos about them, i recommend to watch and learn.
