My Top 5 Real Techniques Brushes

Today I thought I would share with you my collection of Real Techniques  brushes and what I use them for. Some would say I have an fairly extensive collection and believe they are genuinely the best brushes out there at the moment.
As I'm sure most of you know they were launched by Samantha Chapman, one of the Pixiwoo sisters and she did a bloody good job!
Their super good quality, wash well and don't shed, and they are also really reasonably priced!
I don't use them all on an everyday basis (I'd have to have about 5 faces to do so) and tend to get into a routine with a certain selection of them.
Instead of talking about all 15 of them, I thought I'd share my top 5 with you.

So the first one I'm loving at the moment is the Expert Face Brush. I use this to buff in my foundation, its similar to the Buffing Brush but more dense and smaller making it easier to work with.  It gives a really nice natural finish to the skin as well.
Sticking with face brushes, the next one I've been using a lot recently is the Buffing Brush. This comes in the core collection along with 3 other face brushes. I find this is so good for blending blushes. It works well with cream and powder and is really good for building up colour.
The third one in my top 5 is the Powder Brush. This is the best powder brush I think I've ever used. It's a fab size, really big which is definately my favourite thing about it. Also just like all of the Real Technique brushes its so so soft and not in the least bit scratchy.
Next is the Duo Fiber Contour Brush. I use this for contouring (suprise suprise). It fits perfectly in the hollows of my cheeks so is ideal for creating the illusion of cheekbones. I also love the look of this brush, with the white handles and pink writing on it. The duo fiber collection is limited edition but currently still avaliable.
Lastly in my top 5 is the Duluxe Crease Brush. This came in the eye brush set along with 4 others. This is my go to brush for blending eyeshadows. It's pretty dense and fits well in the crease making it the perfect size.
Have you tried any of the Real Techniques brushes? Which is your fave?
