Real Techniques Your Eyes enhanced Starter Kit Review


Today I will be reviewing the Real Techniques eye starter set for you all. I got it as my birthday present in the month of March 2014. Since then I have been using it on a regular basis. We all know how real techniques is cruelty free so i am not going to mention about the material and stuffs. You can read all about it in their website. 

It comes along with a travel case (with space for keeping few more brushes) and I threw the outer cover long back.

Real Techniques Your Eyes enhanced Starter Kit Review

The set contains the following five brushes:

Base Shadow Brush
Deluxe Crease Brush
Accent Brush
Pixel Point Eyeliner Brush and
Brow Brush

This review will be from a beginner perspective.


Real Techniques base shadow brush

It picks and applies eye shadows very well and at times I even use to mildly blend it in especially when I am using a neutral eyeshadow. It packs eye shadows very well despite its fairly fluffy appearance.  Due to its shape, I find it easy to apply eyeshadows on the inner corner.


Real Techniques Deluxe crease brush

This is very soft, fluffy and well packed. It Blends eye shadows effortlessly and imparts a very nice finish. But unfortunately it is too big for my eyes. May be I am using it all wrong. I am yet to get used to it. I use it occasionally to blend eyeshadows but, it fails as a crease brush.


Real Techniques accent brush

I love this brush. It does a great job in applying eyeshadows precisely on my lower lash line and for applying highlighters on the inner corners. I also love to use this brush when I want a diffused messy kohled eyes look. It is small compared to the other brushes in this kit.


Real Techniques pixel point eyeliner brush

At the first sight of this brush, I was like “wow its too thick and big for applying eyeliners” but after using it few times, I can say that it works wonderfully for lining the upper lash line. I use it along with gel liners and cream eyeshadows. Due to the shape of the brush it does a great job in applying it evenly on my upper lash line.

As i mentioned earlier, i threw away the case and relied on e-commerce sites for the exact names of the brushes. I came to know that pixel point eyeliner brush (which was supposedly thicker than this one) has been replaced by a comparatively thinner fine liner brush


Real Techniques brow brush

Real Techniques brow brush

It is the most frequently used brush in the entire kit. I use it to smudge the eye brow pencil throughout my brows. Works well. Picks brow powers really well and does a great job. It is quite thick so you cannot double it for lining the lower lashline. I prefer thin and smaller angular brush for that. 

After my first use, I was quite disappointed that they were nothing magically but for being soft against my skin. I half expected them to magically transform my messy eye shadows into perfectly done ones.  After I started fine-tuning my application skills I can say that I am quite happy with my purchase.

The brushes are of good quality and I did not face any shedding issues.

Overall a decent and thoughtfully made brush set. It is priced at around $18 but it was purchased during offer from amazon.
