Real Techniques On Location Travel Essentials Set

If you're still on the hunt for the perfect gift for the beauty lover in your life, I would suggest a brush set from Real Techniques! Their On Location Travel Essentials Set* ($23.99 CAD) is an affordable set containing three full sized brushes. These brushes are made with 100% synthetic, cruelty free bristles, so they're sure to please everyone on your list!

"The Travel Essentials Kit Includes three full-size brushes plus case:
  • Essential foundation brush: build flawless custom coverage with liquid foundation or concealer
  • Multi-task brush: for effortless application of powder, blush, and bronzer
  • Domed shadow brush: tapered design smoothly shades and defines eyes
  • Panoramic brush case: is a 2-in-1 case plus stand" - Real Techniques

The Essential Foundation Brush in this set is great for tapping in concealer, and I personally don't use it to apply foundation. This is the one brush in the set that I could do without, but I still do like it for concealer. This brush is flattened, so it's great for pressing in product.

The Domed Shadow Brush is really great for applying eye shadows all over your lid. I've been reaching for this brush daily, it's really amazing! For an eye brush, this one is on the larger side, so that's why I like it for either applying product all over my lids, or blending out shadows.

The Multi-Task Brush is amazing for applying both powder and bronzer. The bristles on this brush are really soft, which feels great all over your face. These bristles pick up just the right amount of product, and it makes application of bronzer really effortless. 

This Real Techniques On Location Travel Essentials Set would make a great gift option under $25 for any beauty lover in your life! I really love the Domed Shadow Brush and the Multi-Task Brush, and I think that those two brushes make the set worth it. The Essential Foundation Brush isn't exactly essential in my makeup routine, but I know that a lot of people love brushes like this for foundation. I haven't had any issues with bristles falling out of any of these brushes, and I've washed them several times. 

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Would you pick up a brush set for the beauty lover in your life? :)
