USpicy Cosmetic Brush Set - Real Technique Dupe?

You can never have too many make-up brushes in my opinion and whilst I am some way off completing mine and having all the ones I need, when I was given the chance to try a 10-piece brush set** from USpicy I jumped at the chance. Now 10 brushes is a huge collection to have and this kit usually retails for £35.99 though it is on special offer on Amazon for half price right now!

When the brushes arrive, they are packaged inside this lovely gift box with a really handy guide to each brush. Inside that box, wrapped individually you will find a Flat Brush, Tapered Brush, Flat Angled Brush, Round Brush, Precision Flat Brush, Precision Tapered Brush, Precision Flat Angled Brush, Precision Angled Brush and Precision Round Brush. 









Looking at each brush in turn, not only are they really well made, they use synthetic fibre hair for the brush and then the handle is made from aluminium ferrule and wooden.  On the face, the brush itself is incredibly soft and I would actually say they are as soft as my Real Technique brushes and perform just as good a job.

My favorites of the bigger brushes are the 'Flat' brush which I use to apply my Boots No.7 foundation which is a liquid and it works really well on the flat areas of my face especially forehead and my cheeks.  I also love the 'Round' brush which I use when applying my powder as it helps to blend everything onto my skin leaving no lines.  Then with the smaller brushes, the one I currently use the most are the 'Precision Flat Angled brush' for applying my concealer as I am trying not to use my fingers so much.

I personally think this is a great set of brushes and it would make a lovely gift for someone who is just discovering what make-up brushes can do when used properly or as a gift for someone who just loves make-up brushes, they are great quality and even when washed they don't shed their hair and are just as easy to clean as any other brush I have.

Have you tried this USpicy brush set?  Do any of them take your fancy?

  12. I have not heard of this brand before, but for the price the brushes sound really good. I agree there is no such thing as too many make up brushes. I only have the RT ones and a couple Nanshy ones, I need more. KBxx
