And the Real Techniques Holiday 2016 Limited Edition Your Picks Winning Design is...

You may recall that in April of this year, Real Techniques launched a campagin on social media asking fans to vote for their favorite design for the Holiday 2016 Your Picks brush set. Well the winner has been announced and the winning set will launch on the Real Techniques website this November (I'm assuming this set will also be avaialble at all of the usual retailers). If you missed the winning annoucment on their Instagram page yesterday, first let's refresh our memories and take a look at all of the designs:





Buenos Aires

And the winner is...


From the Real Techniques website:

We have combined fan favorite must-have brushes with a fan voted design to create this limited edition your picks set.
  • buffing brush: ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation
  • contour brush: delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish
  • stippling brush: 2 bristle types and lengths distribute product for a feathery finish
  • deluxe crease brush: soft, oversized design for effortless contouring
  • base shadow brush: applies a smooth, flawless foundation of color

Creative Inspiration: street art scene of Berlin, Germany. Street artists and painters from around the world contribute to the graffiti, murals, and paintings in Berlin.

Available November 1st!

None of the brushes in this set are new. As the copy above states, they are all "fan favorite must-have brushes". The Berlin design will only be available for the holiday season, so if you love this design and it received your vote, be sure to get it while you can starting this November.

Did you vote in this campaign back in April? Which design received YOUR vote?


  1. I'm so happy this design won! It's my favorite out of all of them.

  2. awww... I liked Buenos Aires and Sydney :(

    1. I did too. It's so easy to get black and white brushes I prefer color. It's a but boring imo

  3. These are so pretty! When is my birthday again? Someone needs to buy me these instead of food and flowers! :D

  4. Side note, the LE cheek brush in the Cheek and Lip set works wonders as a super fast foundation brush. It's slightly different from the cheek brush with the silver handle. This brush should be made permanent.

  5. I liked Sydney and Buenos Aires.. I really do NOT like the winner at all. Yuck. I will definitely be passing on this..

  6. I love Buenos Aires too. Not going to be purchasing this set. Thanks for saving me money. Too bad for you though.

  7. Awww, I liked this pattern the least. I really preferred Sydney and Buenos Aires. I won't be picking this one up then.

  8. I'm the same-- I was hoping for Sydney or Buenos Aires. =( The Berlin pattern isn't so great..

  9. The regular sets are more than 50% off on the Walmart website with free 2 day shipping!!!! They are down to less than $10 if you wanted the regular design.

  10. I really wanted Sydney! I really didn't like the Berlin pattern, won't be buying there. :(

  11. Awwww I wanted Sydney! Where is the color?! Oh well. This changes my life completely.
