Real Techniques Everyday Essentials VoxBox

It seems like Influenster always knows when I need something, because just when I had been talking to a friend about my makeup brushes not doing the job right, I get an email a week later saying I was approved for this Real Techniques campaign. Coincidence? I dunno. What do you think, NSA agent listening in through my cell phone?

The point is, I got 4 new makeup brushes and a blending sponge complimentary from Influenster. The following review is my own honest opinion and in my own words.

I'd like to preface by saying that I am by no means a beauty guru. I love makeup but I will not pretend to know all the technicalities and jargon that makeup artists do. I do my makeup for fun and for everyday use, so I rarely get experimental, so this review is very much based on my average everyday 20-something point of view.

The only brush that I really don't get a lot of use out of is the RT 402 Setting Brush. It doesn't seem to do any good for what I would need it for, and I usually end up just using an alternate brush.
 I think my favorite is the RT 300 Deluxe Crease Brush. This brush is M A G I C. I have always had the absolute worst time blending my eyeshadow, and I either end up with gross harsh lines or a muddy nasty blob on my lids. This brush is one I would have to immediately get replaced if something happened to mine!

The RT 400 Blush brush doesn't technically get used for blush, since I don't wear blush. Instead, this is what I use to apply any powder highlight! It works great too disperse it where I want and blend it to look natural.

The blending sponge is AMAZING. It's just soft enough so I don't feel like I am getting punched in the face every time I apply foundation, but does a great job of creating a even blend!

You can see me using some of these brushes in my Insta Stories Highlights under Beauty!
