Real Techniques LE Duo Fiber Collection

I've been checking this make-up brush set for ages, ever since it hit the market but even though reviews on Real Techniques brushes have all been stellar – this set in particular hoarded very mixed reviews. So, I'll try to elaborate on why that is the case, whether these really are essentials and how I use them. While the regular Real Techniques brushes (separate pieces or brush collections) are pretty straightforward, the Real Techniques Limited Edition Duo Fiber Collection is somewhat different. While most Real Techniques brushes are great at packing on make-up and pigment, the Duo Fiber Collection is aimed at providing and creating a more natural look. That doesn't mean that the rest of RT brushes are only for those searching of impact-making make-up, it's just that those are more versatile. You can go light or strong as you please, while these white-handled beauties run a one way show. The lack of versatility could be the main flaw of this set of brushes but if you're anything like me and your go-to is a natural make-up with just a flush of color – than my babes, you will adore this set of brushes.

Vec jako dugo vremena sam mjerkala ovaj set kistova, jos od trenutka kada je pusten u prodaju. Iako je vecina Real Techniques kistova pobrala zaista fantasticne pohvale, dojmovi glede ovog seta su itekako pomijesani. Pokusati cu dati odgovor zasto je to tako, da li je ovaj set make-up kistova uistinu neophodan te cu objasniti kako ih ja koristim. Dok je ostatak Real Techniques kistova (zasebni komadi ali i setovi) dosta jasan i jednostavan za koristenje, Real Techniques LE Duo Fiber Collection set je ipak nesto specificniji. Dok su ostali RT kistovi odlicni za nanosenje i blendanje sminke te nanosenje pigmenta, Duo Fiber kolekcija je vise fokusirana na kreiranje prirodnog i blagog look-a. To uopste ne znaci da su ostali RT kistovi pogodni samo za “jace” make-up look-ove – koliko su jednostavniji za koristiti toliko ih mozete upotrijebiti na vise razlicitih nacina. Od njeznog pa do intenzivnog, sa njima mozete cini sto vam je po volji dok su ove ljepotice bijelih drski ipak fokusirane na jednu vrstu nanosenja. Nemogucnost kreiranja razlicitih look-ova je mozda najveca mana ovih LE kistova no, ukoliko ste poput mene i preferirate prirodan izgled uz blagi dodatak boje, vama ce ovi kistovi biti izvrsni i zaljubiti cete se u njih.

Real Techniques LE Duo Fiber Collection contains three brushes; the Duo-Fiber Face Brush, the Duo-Fiber Contour Brush and the Duo-Fiber Eye Brush. The design is clearly attractive and I think that it's spot on as the black&white handles compliment the black base and white tips of these duo-fiber brushes. But, if you look closely at the tips of these brushes, don't they remind you of feathers? Light, airy and gentle – they're perfect for working with highly pigmented products and even cream products. It goes without saying that these are synthetic brushes hence cruelty-free, which is always a bonus. I found that they're easy to maintain, no shedding whatsoever and they're so well made that even the white tips don't get stained by the most intensely pigmented blushes or eye shadows. You really need to use these brushes a bit different than the rest you might own. You cannot actually expect buff in anything with them, otherwise they might perform a bit scratchy and you could end up with big, fat disappointment on your face due to the lack of impact or too light application. These gentle beauties should be regarded as accomplices at the final, finishing stage of make-up. They're ideal for final touches and if you have in mind that creamy blush, for instance, that literally frightens you due to its shocking pigmentation – that's when these babies come into play.

Real Techniques LE Duo Fiber Collection set se sastoji od tri make-up kista; Duo-Fiber kista za lice, Duo-Fiber kista za konturiranje Duo-Fiber kista za oci. Dizajn je ocigledno atraktivan i mislim da crno-bijeli dizajn drski na lijep nacin nadopunjuje crnu bazu i bijele vrhove samih kistova. Ukoliko poblize pogledate vrhove ovih kistova, zar ne podsjecaju na peruske? Lagane, prozracne i njezne – idealne su za rad sa iznimno pigmentiranom kozmetikom ali i sa kremastim proizvodima. Ne mora se spominjati da su ovo kistovi od sintetickih vlakana sto automatski znaci da nisu napravljene na ustrb zivotinja. To je uvijek veliki plus. Primjetila sam da su unatoc njeznoj pojavi jako dobro napravljene. Uopste nije bilo ispadanja dlacica a cak ni najpigmentiranija rumenila ni sjene nisu ostavile boju na bijelim vrhovima. Pristup spram ovih kistova bi zaista trebao biti drugaciji tako da ih ne koristite kao vecinu koja se nalazi u vasoj kolekciji. Ne mozete bas ocekivati besprijekorno blendanje tecne podloge inace bi kistovi mogli i da vas zagrebu po povrsini koze a da vi sa lica ne mozete skinuti dojam razocarenja jer naprosto nece kolicinski nanijeti proizvod koliko mozda ocekujete. Ovi njezni ljepotani bi se trebali koristiti u zavrsnoj fazi nanosenja make-upa. Idealni su kao posljednji korak ili za npr. kremasto rumenilo koje vas plasi intenzitetom boje – tada ovi kistovi nastupaju.

Duo-Fiber Face Brush is something I mostly use with finishing powders and blushes. It's perfect for applying a fixating powder with a light sweep over the T-zone. Doesn't distribute too much to leave you looking cakey but the right amount of light dusting. I also love how it works with all my blushes, powder or cream. I have the perfect example – my Deborah Milano Hi-Tech Blush in Paprika. Gorgeous reddish blush that I am completely in love with but is a pain in the derriere to apply. Even the lightest hand can apply too much with any other brush and it's back to the drawing board. The Duo-Fiber face brush applies it amazingly and you can never go overboard, no matter how pigmented your blush is. It's also supreme at dabbing creamy blush right where you want it – on the apples of your cheeks. Duo-Fiber Contour Brush is great for applying bronzers but not the warm-up kind – the contouring kind, mind you. With the light, feathering strokes of its white tips you simply cannot go wrong. No muddy face anymore, hooray! It's also perfect for applying powder highlighters, such as the theBalm Mary Lou-Manizer luminizer. It simply dabs some of this magical powder where I want to for a subtle effect. You get gentle pools of light in strategic places. Finally, we have the Duo-Fiber Eye Brush. This may be the least versatile brush as you cannot blend eye shadow the way we usually do and you don't have the entire length of bristles doing the job for you. Just the white tips and those are ideal for blending and building up darker eye shadow inside the crease or the outer “v” of your eyelid. If you apply to pack on pigment, it'll just crumble. I mainly use it for light crease defining and sometimes to finish up concealer with a light dusting of powder. Are these essential? Mainly no but if you're aiming to perfect natural make-up or you're a make-up rookie with a heavy hand, than this might be just the thing. I've purchased this set at iHerb for $19.99 and if you want to save some cash – use my $5/$10 off code for your first order (ZMW209).

Duo Fiber kist za lice je kist koji najcesce koristim za nanosenje pudera za fiksiranje ali i sa rumenilima. Idealan je za njezno prelazenje puderom preko T-zone jer nikada ne nanosi previse pudera da lice djeluje neprirodno. Naprotiv, nanosi optimalnu kolicinu. Takodjer mi je krasan za nanosenje rumenila, u puderu ali i kremaste formulacije. Dati cu vam idealan primjer kada je ovaj kist nezamjenljiv – Deborah Milano Hi-Tech rumenilo u nijansi Paprika. To je prekrasno crvenkasto rumenilo koje jako volim no nanosenje je uvijek komplikovano posto je jako pigmentirano. Cak i kada maksimalno pazim, desi mi se da nanesem previse na jedno mjesto i onda moram ici sa sminkanjem od pocetka. Duo Fiber kist za lice tu uskace jer, koliko god da je rumenilo pigmentirano, nikada necete nanijeti previse. Nanosite malo po malo u slojevima dok ne dobijete zeljeni efekat a takodjer je zgodan i za kremasta rumenila. Nad njima pruza potpunu kontrolu da bude naneseno tacno gdje zelite – na vrh jagodica. Duo Fiber kist za konturiranje je idealan za rad sa bronzerima. No ne sa onim koji daju toplinu licu, vec bronzerima i puderima za konturiranje. Posto je nanosenje njezno i postupacno, sa njim nema greske. Takodjer je idealan za nanosenje hajlajtera u puderastoj formi, npr. theBalm Mary Lou-Manizera. Njim njezno utapkam malu kolicinu hajlajtera i dobijem mini bazene svjetlosti na strateskim mjestima. Napokon, imamo Duo Fiber kist za oci. Ovo je mozda najnezgodniji i najzahtjevniji kist iz seta jer ga ne mozemo koristiti kao obicno te nemate na raspolaganju kist cijelom duzinom vec samo bijele vrhove. Ono u cemu su ti vrhovi jako dobri jeste postepeno blendanje tamnije sjene za oci u pregibu oka ili u “v” obliku. Ukoliko njim pokusate nanijeti pigment preko cijelog kapka, samo ce se rasuti. Vecinom ga koristim za definiranje oka ali i za nanosenje malo pudera preko korektora ispod ociju. Da li su ovo apsolutno neophodni kistovi? U vecini slucajeva ce taj odgovor biti ne. Ali ukoliko ciljate na prirodno sminkanje, pocetnik ste u nanosenju sminke ili ste teske ruke – ovi kistovi ce itekako dobro posluziti. Set sam kupila sa iHerba za cca 28KM a ako zelite ustediti koji novcic – iskoristite moj promotivni kod kojim ce prva narudzba biti manja za 7KM/14KM (ZMW209).
