I've got something a little different to share today. I've been all about the makeup and polish this past week, but I rarely mention anything about tools. Well, today I'm sharing some quick pictures and thoughts on a Real Techniques brush set I picked up last Saturday. It was the last one in the display, and I just decided to grab it on my way to the register to pay for my microdermabrasion session.
For $20 (minus the $3.50 off Ulta coupon), I thought that was a pretty good deal for the Real Techniques Eyelining Set Collector's Edition, which includes 4 brushes and a brush pouch and is limited edition.

Precision Liner Brush
I actually feel like I don't have any of these brushes in my brush stash already. I do have some quick thoughts/impressions. I feel like the Pointed Liner Brush is closest to the shape I'm accustomed to using for my gel liners. The Eyeliner Brush seems like it's on the thick side to get a precise line so I'll have to see how I can get use out of it. The Precision Liner Brush looks like I might be able to use it somewhat confidently with gel liners as well. The Smudge Brush feels more "wiggly" than others I have that are cut similarly so I'll have to play around with it as well to see how well I like it. Maybe I'll like it better than the stiffer version (Rite Aid's version, if you're curious). The brush pouch came stuffed with tissue paper and looks like it'll fit several brushes nicely.
I thought that this link showing all of Real Techniques' brushes in the Original Line would be useful for reference. I have none from the Brushed Metals line, and don't really see myself getting any.
I'm playing around with the idea of once I'm caught up on Project "Finish" Updates (which was supposed to be today but I just couldn't get it together), I'm going to start sharing what I have from various makeup brands, as well as tools. I think it'll be helpful, especially for the Real Techniques line, to keep track of what I have. I already do Sunday Stash Sharing for polishes, so why not do makeup/tools on Saturdays?
Have you come across the Real Techniques Eyelining Set Collector's Edition? What do you think of a Saturday Stash series for makeup and tools?
