New Arrival: REAL TECHNIQUES 2016 PRODUCTS

Real Techniques New Products Spring 2016

Real Techniques has launched some new and exciting 2016 products that are available for sale at Phoenix Beauty Lounge store in Markham, ON and it looks like the Pixiwoo Sisters are bringing us some very exciting products for the new year. Check this out:

New Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette 
Cleans brushes 55% better.*
Great makeup application starts with a clean brush. The brush cleansing palette helps sweep away makeup, oil, and impurities from bristles to give you truer, more consistent color application.
*performance-grade silicone: lightweight and ergonomically designed to fit comfortably over your hand
*exclusive multi-textured surfaces: designed to gently work between the bristles for enhanced deep cleansing
Step 1: Slip hand into the palette and squeeze a drop of our brush cleansing gel onto the tool. Add warm water to the palette.
Step 2: Swirl brush into the gel and water across the various surfaces until the brush is clean. Rinse bristles thoroughly, being careful to not fully immerse the base of the bristles. Squeeze out the excess water.
Step 3: Rest your brushes across the surface of the tool to dry or use the panoramic case from our sets (sold separately) to dry brushes upside down.
* Tested using Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette and Brush Cleansing gel versus hand-cleaning with water.

Real Techniques – Your Eyes Starter Set review

A few days ago we shared an in-depth review of the Real Techniques Your Base core collection with you, and today we’re sharing the Real Techniques Your Eyes Starter set. As the name suggest, this set features everything you need for eyeshadow application and everything to do with eye make-up. Let’s take a look!

The Real Techniques brushes are extremely high quality and made from synthethic Taklon brushes that are incredibly soft. The density of the brushes will enable you to blend and apply your makeup to perfection! The Real Techniques Your Eyes Starter Set comes with five brushes and the 2-in-1 case + stand.

The handles of the brushes are very sleek and stylish. Each range has a distinct colour, the purple colour refers to the Enhanced Eyes range of brushes. The ferrules are smooth matte aluminum and the ends have a soft matte rubberized finish. The matte finish of the handles makes these very pleasant to hold. They are lightweight and sit comfortably in your hands.

The brushes that come in this set are: base shadow brush, accent brush, brow brush, deluxe crease brush and the pixel-point eyeliner brush. Let’s go over each of these brushes individually and discuss what they do best!

realtechniques_deluxecreasebrush copy

Real Techniques – Deluxe Crease Brush

This brush is an amazing blending brush. It’s round, really dense and blends eyeshadow like no other! It looks fairly large at first but you’ll soon notice how easily this blends the eyeshadow in your crease. We adore this brush!

realtechniques_baseshadowbrush copy

Real Techniques – Base Shadow Brush

This is a great brush for applying color to your lid. Use it with a patting motion to apply eyeshadow on your lid. Its pointed shape leans itself towards precise blending as well. Another great mutli-tasker!

realtechniques_accentbrush copy

Real Techniques – Accent Brush

This is a nifty little brush. It’s perfect for a whole range of tasks! Smudging eyeliner close to the lashline, applying highlight to the inner corners of the eyes, even applying lipstick or eyeliner! It’s just the perfect amount of stiffness while still being soft and non-scratchy.

Real Techniques – Pixel-Point Eyeliner Brush

This brush is your friend when you need to apply eyeliner or lipstick. Samantha cleverly shows us how to use this brush in her video. She uses this brush with a gel eyeliner to apply a perfect winged eyeliner.

Real Techniques – Brow Brush

Finally we have the brow brush. This one is, as the name suggests, great for applying powder to shape your brows. We also like it for eyeliner application and even for applying eyeshadow underneath the lower lashline. A great brush that’s very soft too!

That concludes the break down of all 5 brushes included in the Real Techniques Your Eyes Starter set. We’ve noticed again that these brushes are all great multi-taskers and suited for a whole number of different types of products. With this set you’ll guaranteed flawless eye make-up application.

Real Techniques – Your Base Core Collection

Hi everyone! A few days ago we announced a new brand that was added to our store, Real Techniques. This is an amazing brand of high quality make up brushes that is much loved in the blog community! Created by make-up lover and pro make up artist, Samantha Chapman, famous from YouTube channel Pixiwoo.

We promised you an in-depth review of the brush sets and today we’re sharing the first one! Let’s take a look at the first set we have in store for you, Real Techniques Your Base Core collection.

The Real Techniques Your Base Core collection comes with four brushes and a 2-in-1 brush case+stand. The case is extremely practical and is great for on-location or for when you’re traveling. Throw it in your bag to protect your brushes, and pull open the case to reveal a stand.

The packaging of the brushes is very sleek. Each range has a distinct colour, the orange colour refers to the Flawless Base range of brushes. The ferrules are smooth matte aluminum and the ends have a soft matte rubberized finish. The matte finish of the handles makes these very pleasant to hold. They are lightweight and sit comfortably in your hands.

The brushes are made out of synthetic Taklon hairs which are extremely soft! The Taklon bristles are 100% cruelty free which is great. Synthetic fibres will also hold their shape much better over time. The soft fibres will help you create a super smooth finish!

Let’s take a look at each of the brushes individually.

Real Techniques – Buffing Brush 

This brush is large and flares out on either side. The buffing brush is perfect for, as the name suggest, buffing your foundation into your skin. You can use this with liquid, cream, even powder. It’s a great multi-tasker!

realtechniques_contourbrush copy

Real Techniques – Contour Brush

This contouring brush is so soft! It’s really smooth and perfect to help you create an airbrushed finish. We love to use this for blusher, bronzer or highlighter.

realtechniques_detailerbrush copy

Real Techniques – Detailer Brush

This pointed brush is perfect for concealer application or for lipstick. We prefer it for the latter! It’s just the right amount of stiffness for lipstick application while still being soft and giving a smooth finish. Applying lipstick with a brush will not only make your lipstick last longer but also give a nicer finish!

realtechniques_pointedfoundationbrush copy

Real Techniques – Pointed Foundation Brush

This pointed foundation brush is perfect for liquid foundation application. It’s pointed shape will help you reach all the corners of your face, under the eyes, around the nose, etc.

That concludes the break down of all 4 brushes included in the Real Techniques Your Base Core Collection set. We’ve noticed these brushes are all great multi-taskers and suited for a whole number of different types of products. These brushes cover almost all tasks to do with application of base products like foundation, blush, powder, concealer, etc. A definite must-have!
