Happy Birthday Real Techniques!

Happy 5th Birthday to Real Techniques by Sam & Nic! What did we do before the launch of these amazingly affordable, cruelty free, synthetic, high-quality, soft brushes existed? I had always resorted to expensive premium brushes that were harder to clean and even harder to loose or damage. Surprisingly, I still have my first Real Techniques brushes from 3 years ago (when I first discovered the brand thanks to YouTube) and they are still going strong! Considering I beat the crap out of my brushes these days, that’s incredibly impressive. Leave it to Sam and Nic to create the best affordable and accessible brushes on the market. They also launched a premium collection The Bold Metals, which are a higher price point, but worth every penny. The handles are weighted for optimum makeup application. Can you tell I’m a huge fan of Real Techniques? In honor of their 5th birthday, they have sent the cutest array of favorites. I was lucky enough to receive an extra box and wanted to offer a giveaway for all the love and support you guys have shown me. So all you have to do to enter is make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel and follow this blog on Bloglovin’ That’s it! There are also other bonus entries available for more chances to win. If you’d like to give this blog post a love (the heart icon on Bloglovin’) or any of my other posts, it would be greatly appreciated.

Real Techniques by Sam & Nic 2

You probably already know a lot about Real Techniques and if not, I have many posts and videos on the brand (I will link them at the bottom of this post). Most importantly I respect the women behind the brand. Sam and Nic are strong, smart, compassionate women with integrity and acumen. They are honest with their viewers and care about what they put out with their names on it. What impresses me the most is they have achieved all his while also being mothers, sisters, and friends. I hope that the next time you are shopping for brushes, you consider Real Techniques. I actually bought a whole set just for my makeup kit, back when I was doing makeup for shoots.

    I have not tried any Real Technique Brushes before but of course I would love to try them someday ^_^ But I love there miracle complexion sponge among all the sponges I have tried this is my favorite although I can’t compare it with beauty blender since I have never bought it before. But the shape and how it applies is great and I give it 2 thumbs up. #snapchatfam ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ
