I have exciting news! Real Techniques brushes have finally become available in Canada! I have wanted to try these brushes for so long. You would expect a brush created by Sam of Pixiwoo to be exceptional but at the same time I questioned the quality of a synthetic brush at such a reasonable price point. The brushes have been out for quite some time though now and I see them in use by so many bloggers and vloggers that I trust and respect. They have been available to Canadians through a few internationally shipping etailers but I’d yet to take the plunge because none of them seemed terribly convenient to order from. Well now the amazing folks at FarleyCo Canada have them! They will be announcing Canadian retailers shortly but in the meantime you can order direct from FarleyCo! As of now they are only carrying the sets but if the response is favourable enough they will add the individual brushes. I really hope they do because I want the Expert Face Brush!
Designed with pro makeup artist Samantha Chapman (of Pixiwoo fame), Real Techniques brushes combine high-tech materials with innovative design to make creating a pixel-perfect look easier than ever:
Taklon bristles are ultra plush and smoother than the hair you’ll find in other brushes. Since taklon is synthetic, it’s 100% cruelty-free. The soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light – from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting. The color-coded system corresponds to the key steps of makeup application so you can create a flawless base, enhanced eyes, and the perfect finish like a pro. Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish. The collection is suitable for a wide range of products and every makeup need – from powders, creams, and liquids to mineral makeup, highlighter, and shimmer. Brush names on the handles make for easy reference when creating your favorite look.
Update: They are now being carried at Walmarts across Canada. Farleyco now has the individual brushes available as well!
