Review // Real Techniques: Travel Essentials

Real Techniques - Travel Essentials
"Your essential tools go mobile"

*  *  *

The Travel Essentials kit, retailing from €24.99, Is the second Real Techniques set I tried. It contains three brushes, one base, one eye and one finish brush aimed to "provide you with everything you need to create flawless look at home and away" along with the panoramic case. In the set you will get: 

Essential Foundation Brush:
"build flawless custom coverage with liquid foundation of concealer"
This brush is quite a nice brush for applying foundation and concealer so again its multi task. Its dense, yet soft enough to be used on the under eye area. Unfortunately this brush gets neglected as I use the RT Buffing Brush from the Core Collection for my liquid foundation, Saying that if I didn't have the buffing brush, I'd have absolutely no problem using this everyday!

Domed Shadow Brush:
"tapered design smoothly shades and defines eyes"
Again a multi task brush, I've used this for base eye shadow application and as a crease brush, but I love using it as a blending brush as its super soft and blends harsh lines with ease.

Multi Task Brush:
"for effortless application of powder, blush and bronzer"
The name and description says it all really. Its a wonderfully fluffy soft brush that I just can't help sweeping over my face more than needed. Its perfect for setting your foundation with powder or just powdering oily areas. It picks up just enough product for a nice coverage without making you look 'cakey'

Panoramic Case:
"dual carrier and stand keeps brushes organised on your counter or on the go"
The case is exactly the same as the case that the Core Collection. Not only a case, but a stand aswel. Neat, sturdy and also has spaces on the left for extra brushes.

I've had the Travel Essentials for about 3 weeks now and have washes them twice so far and like the Core Collection, I've had no shedding at all. They're super easy to clean and again shockingly quick to dry. 

Bottom Line:
I think this is a great addition to my growing RT family, My favourite being the Multi Task brush, Its just so soft! In the words of Agnes from Despicable Me "It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!!". I honestly haven't used anything else bar Real Techniques since I got them! I reckon I'm in love! You can find them in most Boots stores (In Ireland) or online on various sites (Boots, Feel Unique and Cloud10Beauty)

I've also reviewed the Core Collection and will be reviewing the Starter Set soon!

Have you tried Real Techniques before? If so let me know!
