Real Techniques Brushes and a Giveaway

One of the questions I get a lot is "what brushes do use?" Well in my kit I have 5 different brands of brushes each for different reasons. But one of the newest brush brands I have fallen for is Real  Techniques by Samantha Chapman. I added my first real technique brush to mu kit about twelve months ago and haven't looked back.

The brushes feel and perform like top of the line professional brushes at a fraction of the cost. Samantha Chapman is a Makeup artist and a very successful beauty video blogger on Youtube, and her brushes reflect the quality required by professionals.
I have found a great website the sells these brushes at a lot less than Australian retail prices. I love to shop online but hate having to wait for slow international shipping. This was not an issue at all with iherb. The order arrived 3 days after I had placed my order, I was so impressed.

I purchased the core collection, the starter set a powder brush, the foundation brush and the stippling brush.
I also purchased a second set of the core collection to give away to one of you. I love these brushes so much that I wanted you to have an opportunity to see for yourself.
Core Collection
The core collection contains a Detailer brush, a pointed foundation brush, a buffing brush and a contour brush and a case that makes the set freestanding.

To enter is simple, just leave me a comment telling me what makeup or beauty product you wont leave the house without.

I also have a discount code for you all, iherb have given me a discount code for you to use simple use code : BSH025 at checkout and receive $10 of all orders over $40 or $5 off smaller orders.
                                          check out there range at www.iherb.com

                    The winner will be chosen by random on wednesday the 15th of may,good luck


  1. Great competition, Desiree! I never leave the house without some form of base. Be it a really light coverage tinted moisturiser, BB cream or more full coverage foundation for bad skin days! Oh and lip balm!

  2. Love these brushes. I won't leave the house without moisturising. Rosehip oil is a must to keep me hydrated.

  3. At the moment my best friend is tea tree balm as I am covered in very attractive red spots from sand fly bites ... sexy I tell ya

  4. Very nice brushes! I was just thinking about makeup brushes today..... I never leave home without my treasured and favourite lipgloss!! Or sometimes, a bronzer

  5. It's an old staple but I NEVER leave home without my Lucas Paw Paw ointment. That stuff is the bomb on my lips. It's the past $4 I spend maybe three or four times a year. And it's great for little scratches and irritations too.

    *PS, just discovered you via the Blog Chicks group! :)

    1. Ugh... the past $4? I wrote past? What was I thinking? past = best.

      Don't even ask how that became past. Embarrassment. *facepalm*

  6. I won't leave the house without some foundation on (Stila) and a brush of 'by Terry' blush. Brings my face to life!

  7. I won't leave the house without BB cream, just need to even out the base without scaring the peeps!

  8. I won't leave the house without BB cream! As long as I've got that magic stuff on my face, I can face whatever comes my way :D

  9. Right now its my Korres Lip Butter in Quince! :D

  10. Boring as fuck, I know, but it's gotta be my Bloom/Boost lip balm. Best balm everrrr! x

  11. Black eyeliner... that's usually all I wear.
