Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman: Prices and Stockists

It takes a lot to get me excited about a cosmetic launch these days. Even the prospect if visiting a Sephora in the near future has somewhat lost its allure.

However, yesterday, I almost lost my beauty-addled mind when Samantha Chapman of Pixiwoo fame*  announced that her revered Real Techniques brush line would now be carried by larger Boots stores including those here in Ireland!

So, I did a bit of emailing and I got my grubby little mitts on the list of stores, the launch date and the much-anticipated price-list!

Real Techniques Starter Set €30.49
Real Techniques Foundation Brush €13.71
Real Techniques Shading Brush €10.97

Real Techniques brushes are expected in larger Boots stores across the UK and Ireland from Monday 6th February! Nothing is astronomically priced though the conversion rate is, perhaps a little suspect when compared to the sterling prices on Love Makeup but, nothing to lose our minds over! I can't wait to get a few brushes for myself!

Will you be picking any brushes up?

  8. Does anyone out there know if it came to Half Moon St Cork store yet? Will be up in Cork in a couple of days and DYING to get my mitts on some decent brushes for a decent (compared to MAC and minus shipping price of Sigma) price!

  9. Does this mean the travel essentials set isnt going to be available here???

  10. Anonymous - i was in there today, they do have them but very limited stock - no blush brush left, no powder brush left either, one stippling brush which was opened... and a couple of the rest. quite disappointing really, i only picked up the kabuki
