Beauty Haul: Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Makeup Brushes

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Makeup Brush Haul
 Ah! Ahhhh! I got a very exciting package in the mail last week. You could probably already tell what I got from the title of this blog post but I'm so excited that I'm going to repeat it. I finally got some brushes from Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman! I've been tempted to purchase these for a while but I never got around to finally taking the plunge...until now. (I hope you read that last sentence in a deep and dramatic voice. Because, let's be real here, makeup brushes are a very serious matter.)

I finally settled with the Travel Essentials Set and the Starter Set. At first glance you can tell that I've used a few of the brushes (I couldn't stop myself) but I'm going to wait a while before I sit down and write a review. So, today's post is going to be a quick overview of the brushes that come in each set plus a lot of excited gibberish. 

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Travel Essentials Set
 The Travel Essentials set comes with three brushes. From left to right: essential foundation brush, domed shadow brush, and multi-task brush. This set retails for $18. Along with the brushes you get a travel case that also doubles as a stand. I think that idea is wonderful but in the short time I've had the brushes, I've noticed that it takes a bit of work to put the brushes back in the case. So I wouldn't recommend it as the place to store them for everyday. 

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Starter Set
The next set I got was the Starter Set and it comes with five brushes. From left to right: deluxe crease brush, base shadow brush, pixel point eyeliner brush, brow brush, and accent brush. This set also retails for $18 and comes with the travel case/stand. 

And...that's the end of my haul. I feel like I should keep writing but I don't have much else to say. However, I will end on this note. Pixiwoo was one of the first channels that I start watching when I first got into YouTube. Sam and Nic are so professional and talented and charismatic that it's hard to stop once you start watching. I even included the sisters on my first Top Beauty Gurus on YouTube List. They're fantastic. They really are. My only problem when I went to purchase my makeup brushes was trying to decide which ones to get. 


  1. I threw away the cases. They annoy the hell out of me and are not worth the work.

  2. Absolutely love the Real Techniques brushes and think they're such good value for money!

  3. I own both sets and love them! I just recently blogged about my new RT additions - the expert face and setting brushes! :) x

  4. Could you link where you ordered these from? I have a real techniques brush already and I love it! These sets look perfect
