Real Techniques Travel Essentials Brushes Review AND Nationwide Giveaway – Brought to you by House of Flair!

Oho!  I’ve got a whopper of a post for you, Ladies this time.  This is a “sponsored” review in that the product set for review AND  the giveaway prizes are provided by pre-ordering business, House of Flair.  Thanks again, Suyen!  We’ll have a little bit of words somewhere in the middle or towards the end on why House of Flair is such a great business initiative for women like us who love playing with cosmetics, but for now, I have to show and tell…just a little bit because I nearly squealed when Suyen emailed me wanting to sponsor this giveaway for all of you, because that hasn’t happened a lot yet on this site.  I squeaked even louder when she mentioned what was preselected from her on-hand items for the giveaway and what I could choose to review.  These Real Techniques Brushes only happen to be part of the actual affordable but pro brush range designed by one of the UK’s YouTube Pixiwoo sisters, Samantha Chapman who has had over 10 years of professional experience with MAC and more as a professional makeup artist.  The Pixiwoo sisters, Sam and Nicola only happen to be somewhat like the Michelle Phan phenomenon but in the U.K. and with the difference being they’re truly professional makeup artists, when they say in a video that a product is “bloody good”  women have been said to literally flee their homes to head for the nearest makeup counter to purchase it.  When Suyen said I could review a set of these for myself in addition to the giveaway I nearly fell off my seat.

“My travel essentials provide everything you need to create flawless looks at home and away.  Look pixel perfect even in harsh light.  The brushes are made of ultra plush Taklon (synthetic fiber making it ideal for dry or wet products).”  The set also comes with a Panoramic Case which functions as a dual carrier and stand and keeps brushes organized on your counter or on the go, I love this case thingy for retouches on set, I pull what brushes need from my gi-mongous pro kit put it into this velcro strapped roll and track the models I have to retouch with every take.

L-R:  Multi Task Brush – For effortless application of powder, blush, and bronzer, Essential Foundation Brush – Build flawless custom coverage with liquid foundation or concealer, Domed Shadow Brush – Tapered design smoothly shades and defines eyes (but the Pixiwoos use this more often for concealer under the eyes).

Here’s a video tutorial of Samantha’s sister, Nicola doing smoky makeup on an Asian friend of theirs who looks quite Filipina actually (not quite sure if she is) which is why I picked this tutorial in addition to it being the latest one uploaded (and it also happens to be one of the few where they’re doing makeup on someone else).  You may see some of the Real Techniques brushes I mentioned used here and you’ll see the other Real Techniques brushes that aren’t part of this set which might also get you interested in owning a few more.  They’re currently available only in the U.S., and UK from the website if I’m not mistaken.


This travel essentials brush set has brushes with slightly shorter handles for easy transport.  The other collections like the Core/Base Brush set and single brushes for purchase come with slightly  longer handles for better control.  Read more to get to the full post and giveaway mechanics!
