Influenster Voxbox - Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection

I GOT MY FIRST INFLUENSTER VOXBOX! I felt like I had been waiting so long for this. I signed up to Influenster a while ago after I saw quite a few bloggers having success with it. If you're not sure what I'm on about, Influenster is basically another network that can get you working with brands and trying out new products, and to be picked all you have to do is complete as many surveys as possible and leave reviews on products you've used in the past. I'd just about given up on it as I just didn't seem to be getting picked for anything and then one day I had an email saying my Real Techniques Voxbox was on the way! So if you're unsure of whether to carry on with it, DO! I think people are just kind of picked at random so definitely stick with it.
I was so happy to receive this box as Real Techniques are my go to brush brand and I don't often buy new makeup for myself. I'd seen the PowderBleu collection online before but at around £22 a brush, they were just too out of my price range and I never thought I'd get the chance to try them. Luckily I was sent 4 brushes from the collection - Soft Complexion Brush, Soft Powder Brush, Soft Finishing Brush and Soft Shadow Brush, so let me tell you what I think of them all!
First of all, aren't they the most stunning brushes?! I love the dark navy blue colour of them, they are so striking and look beautiful in photos. You can also tell when you hold them how good quality they are, they are quite heavy but comfortable and the actual brush is so incredibly soft. I've been using all four of these as part of my makeup routine and they have all been brilliant. I use the B03 Complexion Brush first for my foundation and it applies it so well! It has a domed, dense head so is great for buffing and blending foundation onto the skin but it can also be used for powder too. When I use this I find my base stays for so much longer and at the end of the day my makeup is in a much better condition than usual.

The next brush I tend to use is the B04 Shadow Brush. I don't really ever wear eyeshadow but this can also be used for concealer and even highlighter. I've been using this to blend any concealer under my eyes and then I tend to go back to it later to dust a bit of highlighter over my cheekbones. I've found it's brilliant for both and now I don't know what I'd do without it as it's so versatile.
I then go for the B02 Finishing Brush as it's great for contouring! I don't know how but everytime it picks up the perfect amount of product and gently sweeps on. It's really good for blending and as it's such a soft brush it doesn't feel like I'm putting loads and loads on my face! I then sometimes use this for blusher too and then I'll use the brush I mentioned before for highlight. The last brush I use is the B01 Powder Brush which is perfect for adding that finishing touch to your makeup. I use this to apply a bit of powder everywhere and really blend in my bronzer and blusher and it's just excellent. Again as I've already said, as it's so soft and light I don't worry about applying loads to my face and it just buffs everything together so well.
Overall I just love these brushes! They are definitely the best I've ever used and are so worth the money. They are pricey but if you want to invest in some new makeup brushes, then these have to be the ones you go for. All of them can be used for a variety of things so you can get multiple uses out of them and they also just look extremely pretty and would be gorgeous on a dressing table!

If you want to give Real Techniques brushes a go, they are available at Boots and Superdrug and they have so many to choose from.

Are Real Techniques your fave too?
