Real Techniques Brushes Are Now Available in Canada!!!!!

I have some very exciting news to share with you all today. Real Techniques brushes will soon be available in CANADA at…. Walmart! I can’t begin to tell you how exciting this news is and although I already own most of their brush line (yes – I drove all over the State of NY looking for them when they first released), this really is wonderful news for my fellow Canadians! 

If you are a long time reader, you already know that MAC, Sigma, Real Techniques and Eco Tools are among my favourite brush brands. Many of you are also familiar with Nicola and Samantha (PIXIWOO on Youtube), two very talented makeup artists (and sisters) from the UK. Well, Samantha Chapman, designed her own line of makeup brushes called “Real Techniques”, but unfortunately the brushes were not available for sale in Canadians stores, until now. It is expected that more retail chains will pick up this great brand, but for now, you can head over to your local Walmart. Look for these to pop up sometime around Valentine’s Day! As soon as I know of any other retailers in Canada, I will be sure to post an update.

Here are some pictures of some of my favourites brushes from my personal collection:

Real Techniques brushes combine high-tech materials and an innovative design and really are GREAT quality for the price. In case you need more convincing, here  is some additional information:

> Taklon Bristles are ultra plush & smooth
> Taklon is synthetic so these brushes are 100% cruelty-free
> Soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light
> These feature a colour-coded system that corresponds with the key steps of makeup application (i.e. face and eye brushes are a different colour)
> Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application
> Suitable for a wide range of products. For example, these brushes can be used with powder, cream, liquid and/or mineral makeup
> Each brush is labelled for easy reference
