Real Techniques Duo-Fibre Brush Set - ft. a Sigma Dupe!

It is a strong belief of mine that you can never have too many makeup brushes. 
And so, naturally I enjoy collecting them - now, I probably do have too many but let's not focus too much on that!
 A month or so ago, I purchased the Real Techniques Duo-Fibre brush set. In this post, I thought I'd share with you my thoughts and feelings on the set - enjoy!
Price? £23.99
Where to Buy? Boots
This set is apparently Limited Edition (though it has been out for quite a while now with no signs of it discontinuing anytime soon) and it comes with three different brushes. 
These are:

 - The Duo-Fiber Face brush: for lightweight application of blush / powder to the face. 
- The Duo-Fiber Contour brush: for controlled contouring and sculpting of the face.
- The Duo-Fiber Eye brush: for finishing touches to the eye and blending. 

My Thoughts:

I have been really enjoying these brushes and they have definitely conveyed me even more into a fan of the duo-fiber brush. This set is made beautifully well and are great quality as Real Techniques are well known for. 
What I love about this set and the brushes themselves most is that they give a really natural and soft flush of colour to the face. This makes them great for building up colour slowly as well as for allowing you to be able to control your coverage a lot more. This is particularly important element in terms of the brushes and their uses. Each brush is for a part of the face that you may not always want a heavy application. These brushes feel well made and soft to the skin and as mentioned before, blend products really well.

My favourite brush of the bunch is probably the contour brush. It's very easy I find to over-contour sometimes by adding too much product, but this brush picks up just enough allowing you to add definition and not sculpt the face too heavily. 

The Face Brush is one I have also enjoyed using as well and I have actually found it to be a pretty spot on dupe for a similar Sigma brush that I have in my collection. 
As you can see in the photo above, the Real Techniques Face Brush is just a little bit bigger than the Sigma F15 but in terms of performance, they're exactly the same and just as good in my opinion. 

The F15 is a whopping £21.50 in comparison to this 3-set collection set being only £23.99 for all 3 brushes. This means you're getting 3 brushes for more or less the price of one if you were to favour the Sigma brush of the Real Techniques one - now considering the brilliant quality of RT brushes, this is an amazing deal!
