Great Synthetic brushes for an even application
Posted by Carinahamed on Jul 17, 2012
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.
Used to be fantastic - last set not good and iHerb customer service diabolical

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! :(
Amazing brushes !

So far I have ordered most of the Real Techniques brushes , only missing a few. I've been using them for a few months and I've been impressed with their quality. Samantha Chapman did a very good job here. The bristles are soft but firm, I love the handles, they are not too long but not too short either. They wash really easily with baby shampoo and warm water, I also disinfected them with 99% alcohol (isopropylic alcohol)and they maintained their shape and their softness. My favorite brush out of this set, is the Buffing Brush. I use it to apply liquid foundation and it became my favorite foundation brush, it made me forget my previous favorite, F80 from Sigma. This brush applies foundation really nice and easy, a few swirls and you're done, leaving a nice flawless finish. It can also be used for powder or blush, but as I said I prefer to use it for foundation. My second favorite brush is the Contour brush which I use for contouring my face with bronzer. It's a nice brush, perfect size to fit right in the cheek bone area, even on the sides of the nose. The Pointed foundation Brush is too small for my liking and I don't use it to apply foundation. Instead I use it to apply and blend the concealer under my eyes and around my nostrils. The fact that is pointed is a plus in this case because it provides an easier application in those areas. The detail brush doesn't get a lot of use in my case, I bought these brushes for personal use, I'm not a make up artist. But I use this brush to add highlighter in the inner corner of my eyes. Overall is an amazing set and well worth its price. I'm planning to buy a second set just for the Buffing brush and the Contour brush (which I'm gonna use this time for highlighting)....I really love them and I need to have two of each.
Merita fiecare banut!

Isi fac treaba foarte bine, nu le cade parul, se usuca destul de repede si au un aspect foarte profi. Le recomand cu drag!

Brushes have good quality and very pleasant tactile feelings. Bristles of taklon is so soft. Brushes are packaged in a quality and handy case. I would like if brush was a bit largest, but it is only one drawback I can see. I recommend it! Очень приятные, качественные кисти. Ворс теклоновый, очень мягкий. Кисти заключены в качественный и удобный чехол. Хотелось бы, чтобы buffing кисть была чуть побольше. Это единственный недостаток, который я могу отметить. Рекомендую.

I love the entire range of these brushes. I own mostly of them and I think they're absolutely fantastic and very good value for the price.

Love these brushes. Considering this set is approximately $45 in Australia, this is amazing value. These are fantastically soft - the set is worth buying for the buffing brush alone. I don't find the other brushes quite as useful, but they're still a great addition to the set.

I have been waiting weeks for these brushes. iHerb are ignoring emails and will not communicate with me, despite the fact I spent $60 on various brushes. I'd advise you to avoid this company like the plague. I will now be taking up claims will DHL and reporting the company to trading standards. Unacceptable.

bristles keep falling out

The bristles keep falling out from the buffing brush. I don't know if it's because this item is faulty but it's really annoying as the bristles keep sticking to my face as I'm applying foundation.
