The best “drugstore” brushes are said to be real techniques, and I totally agree with that statement. I was actually gifted my first set of rt brushes, and am thankful to this day. They are my favorite brushes to this day. The brushes are super soft, and pick up any color. With brushes you’re never sure if they will get the colors in their full pigmentation, but with these brushes you will! I really wanted to write this review, because I feel people pay so much money for brushes that work just as well as these. The packaging is also so aesthetically pleasing with the black and metallic designs. If there is one basic beauty supply to buy its these brushes.
