Real Techniques Duo Fiber Collection

I have been eyeing these brushes since I saw it online last year. I love duo fiber brushes for liquid foundations or even loose powder application. Duo fiber brushes are made of taklon or other synthetic material.  It does not absorb as much product like a fur brush or kabuki brushes. 
Often, i will blend foundation and concealor by using a duo fiber. I have 5 of them in my kit. Three more is even better!

Comparing to the MAC or Sigma duo fiber brushes, these are less dense and has an oval barrel. There are three sizes : For face, contour and eyelids. 

I will use the face brush for powders rather than liquid foundations. It is flatter and I doubt it can be used in a buffing motion. 

The contour brush is a good size and density for a natural looking blush, highlight or deepening the cheekbones. 

Lastly is the eyelid brush, again, for subtle deepening of the eye socket. The size is also great for highlights in the inner corner or brow bone.

This set retails about $39.90 onwards. You can get them at selected Guardian outlets or www.luxola.com

Hope this helps! I definitely need to wash them first before usage. It has a plastic-ky smell probably because of the packaging. Happy weekend :)
