Current Obsessions: Real Technique Blend + Blur Collection

In a world full of dupes, there is one brand that has consistently demolished every brand in making quality, yet affordable products.

Real Techniques by Sam and Nic has been a staple in my brush arsenal for quite some time. When I started freelancing, I went and bought up all the brushes I could find in Ulta. They are truly amazing.

(Disclaimer: I anxiously used one of the brushes before I photographed them. That's why it's stained. And also, my camera battery was dead so I took them with my cell phone.)
