|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.

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.

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.
