Review: Real Techniques Nic's Picks


I'm a big RT fan. I own most of the collection and every time they bring something new out, I'm hooked and have to try it! When I saw they were releasing Nic's Picks with 3 new cuts, it was added to my list straight away!I managed to find the set with discount so instead of paying £29.99 I managed to save £5 and buy it for £24.99.

L-R: Duo-Fiber Face Brush, Cheek Brush, Angled Shadow Brush, Base Shadow Brush & Eyeliner Brush

 Now onto the brushes... The set includes the duo-fiber face brush and base shadow brush that have already been seen. However the 3 exclusive brushes are the cheek brush, angled shadow brush and eyeliner brush. You'll also notice that the design is different and that the brushes are all silver rather than pink/orange/purple. However I really like that they've kept the colour theme by coordinating the writing on these brushes.


All of these brushes live up to the RT standards and although many have been complaining about their durability recently, I haven't had any problems with my brushes. My favourites from this kit are definitely the cheek brush and the angled shadow brush. I've found the cheek brush great for blush and contouring although I've seen others use this as a foundation brush, which I am yet to test out. I really like the angled shadow brush as it's great for blending through the crease. 


I'm not usually one for applying eyeliner with a brush as I tend to use a felt tip style liner, however this new eyeliner brush is much better than the angled one that comes in the eye set as it's much finer. 

Overall I'm really pleased with this little set. As a makeup artist you can never have enough brushes so these are very welcome additions into my rather large and ever growing collection!

Have you tried these brushes? What do you think of them?

  3. This looks like a great brush set. I like that the handles aren't brightly coloured they look more sleek & luxurious. The shadow brushes look so good. I might have to add this to my Xmas list

    1. Yeah they definitely look a lot more classy now. But I like that they've still kept the colour aspect in there somewhere! Perfect idea for the christmas list! X
