Pros: -synthetic bristles feel very soft -bristles are not flimsy at all -ideal for applying liquid/cream products -no shedding -affordable ($6-10 for the individual brushes and $18 for the set of 3, 4 & 5 brushes) -no funky smell -no dye bleeding -100% cruelty-free
Cons: -handles are too wide to fit in my brush holder
Packaging: The Travel Essentials set and Core Collection set ($17.99 each) both come with a travel case, which I rarely use because I tend to overpack and bring alot more brushes than the case can hold. ^_^ The handle of the face brushes is flat on the bottom, so they can be stored standing upright. However, they don`t store well in my

Also, if you`re a long-time follower of my blog, then you know that I prefer my brushes to have a black matte handle and a nickel ferrule. They just look so much more professional and classy. However, I can get past the unconventional funky design of the Real Techniques brushes because they work so darn well.
Bottom Line: Even if you have over 200 brushes in your collection, I still recommend checking out the Real Techniques collection because they`re different from other synthetic brushes. They are flexible without being flimsy and glide product onto the skin effortlessly without ever tugging the skin or leaving a cakey finish. Also, the bristles feel as soft as a bunny`s bottom and they do not shed! Check out this
