Real Techniques Makeup Kits

 You may or may not have seen that Real Techniques have now launched two limited edition makeup kits to go with their amazing range of brushes! As soon as I saw these I knew I had to have them. I'm a huge fan of their brushes so knew these kits would no doubt be just as good! 

I ordered both the Modern Natural Makeup Kit (pictured top) and the Night Owl Makeup Kit (pictured bottom). These kits are both limited edition and will cost you $25.00 / £14.86 each. Each palette comes with 3 long lasting shimmer shades, 1 velvety smooth matte shade, 1 dark gel eyeliner, 1 blush, 1 highlighter and 2 lip glosses. 

Modern Natural Makeup Kit

This beautiful kit has been designed as more of a daytime kit and provides shades perfect for a neutral look. I absolutely love these shades as they tend to be the colours I reach for on an everyday basis, but I also really like that you can build these shades up for a more intense look. 

L-R: Quicksand, Gold Metal, Caramel Mocha, Nightshade, Dark Chocolate, Coral Sunset, Champagne, Copperhead & Nectar. 

Night Owl Makeup Kit

As the name suggests, this kit has been designed to create more of a glam evening look. The shades are still quite neutral but I can tell now some stunning looks are going to be created from this palette.

L-R: Quicksand, Royal Orchid, Midnight Sapphire, Galaxy, Ink, Flushed, Champagne, Nude Rose & Cabernet. 

As you can see the lightest eye shadow and the highlighter are the same in both palettes. I bought these a few weeks ago now when they first came out and have been playing around with the shades. I'm hoping to do a follow-up post about some of the looks I have created.

What do you think of these palettes? Have you bought them? If so, I would love to see some of the looks you've created!



  1. Is the packaging alright (strong, not easy to break)? It looks a bit cheap-ish but I love how they have a blush and highlight, they look gorgeous.

    1. Yeah it's actually much sturdier than it looks! Obviously it might get a bit battered if you throw it around and don't take care of it! And to be honest there are plenty of plastic palettes around that are much worse! X

  2. I was thinking the same as the above poster they look a bit cheap even though the darker palette is more me i think ill give this a miss


    1. As I mentioned above, they are actually a lot nice than they look! I'm not a big fan of the boxes they came in (see first picture of post) but the palettes themselves are very sturdy. X

  3. I'm obsessed with Real Techniques brushes so I'm seriously tempted by these, based on how good the brushes are I'd expect these to be amazing quality as well! I'll probably go for the daytime palette if I decide to go for it, the only thing putting me off is that you have to get them from the US :( Xx

    1. They're so lovely! I wouldn't worry about getting them from the US, shipping was $3.50 so thats just over £2.00 and it was a fairly speedy delivery! X
