New: Real Techniques Sam's Picks Brush Set + GIVEAWAY!

I came back from London on Thursday and I had a package from iHerb waiting for me. I finally received my beloved Real Techniques brushes I've been waiting for all February! It contains six brushes all together, a multi-task brush, a setting brush, a buffing brush, a pointed foundation brush, an essential crease brush (this set's exclusive) and finally a fine liner brush. I am most excited about the setting brush, which has been on my wishlist for absolute ages, the multi-task brush, which I'll be able to use for setting powder, bronzer, maybe even blush, and the crease brush, because I didn't have one until now and I've been getting more and more into eyeshadow, so this will make my life much easier. I'm not sure what I'll use the poited foundation brush for, maybe for under eye concealer or to apply one of my masks (we all know those can get pretty messy sometimes). I am currently using a liquid eyeliner by Bourjois, which comes with its own 'fine liner applicator' so I'll keep this one aside for the time being, but I'm sure it will be useful in the future. And lastly, this set contains one of the most famous RT brushes, the buffing brush. I already have their expert face brush, which I use every day for liquid or mineral foundation and has served me really, really well, so I don't really need another foundation brush. I'm pretty sure if I started using this one, the expert face brush would end up forgotten somewhere in my bathroom and I really don't want that, no matter how amazing the buffing brush is. I try to be as efficient as possible with my beauty products and that's why I decided to give it away to one of my readers. I'm sure the majority of my fellow beauty bloggers alredy have it, but I'm sure there are still girls out there who want to try it out. After watching countless YT videos and reading countless blog posts I can say this is one hell of a coveted make-up brush. If you want to receive it, all you have to do is this:

1. Answer the following question in the comments:

What is the most embarrasing or funny make-up or beauty related thing that has happened to you?

2. Leave your email in the Rafflecopter below.

a Rafflecopter giveaway  

3. You can like my Facebook page, or follow me on Bloglovin', Instagram and Twitter. (This is completely optional, but I will be very happy if you do. :))

The most embarrasing thing that has happened to me regarding beauty is probably when I was trying to comment on one of Jana's Instagram photos with her favourite figs (in Slovene, saying how much I love figs as well), and I somehow accidentally commented on another girl's photo of two Essie nail polishes. Her response was: 'Hello, I don't understand your language, but thank you! :)' You can imagine how weird it looked, a photo of Essie nail polishes and my comment in Slovene, saying: 'Awww, I love figs so much! :))' and the girl obviously though I was complementing her Essie polishes in another language. :D

The giveaway is open internationally until March 1st, I will choose the winner myself, send them an email and they will have 48 hours to write back. If I don't receive an answer, I will choose another person.

I look forward to reading your embarrasing stories! :)

Love,
N. xx

  1. Hehe sem se nasmejala tvojem "I love figs" :D Ker buffing RT čopiča še nimam, bom vsekakor sodelovala :)
    Še moj nerodni mu trenutek: Najbolj mi je v spominu ostalo, to da sem celo noč po svetu hodila z umetnimi trepalnicami le na eni veki, ker mi je na drugi strani nekako odpadla in jaz tega nisem opazila vse dokler nisem prišla domou. Ni mi treba 2x omenit, da od takrat nikoli več nisem posegla po umetnih trepalnicah :/

  2. Poleg groznih obrvi, ki sem jih imela kot najstnica (začele so se kako tretjino od notranjega kotička očesa *facepalm*) je bilo verjetno najbolj emarrasing enkrat, ko se mi je 'odkrušil' delček ene maskare in mi padel v oko. Ta maskara mi je ful razdražila oči in solze so kar lile, maskara pa seveda ni bila vodoodporna. Pričakovala sem, da bom malo razmazana in sem vprašala fanta, če sem kaj, on pa "Ah, ne, nisi, še vedno čist okej zgleda". In sem verjela.. Pojedla sem lepo do konca v restavraciji, se sprehajala mal po Ljubljani itd... In šele, ko sem prišla domov sem vidla, da mam celo oko črno :D Pod spodnjo veko in celo zgornjo veko :D You can never trust a guy :D

  4. Spomnim se ko smo v osmem razredu OŠ imeli ličenje z vizažistko in na žalost sem bila jaz izbrana... namazala me je tako grozno, da se mi je prav cela šola smejala :) naj raje bi se pogreznila v zemljo :)

  7. Haha jaz se pa spomnim 2 fejla...enkrat sem si čisto preveč populila obrvi na levi strani in sem imela 2 popolnoma različni (in ja nekatere fotografije me spominjajo na to, druga pa mi je malo bolj smešna kot neki huda sramota...ko smo si oči barvali v črno, eyelinerji in te fore. Na srečo sem imela jaz res kratko obdobje tega.

  8. Hmmm... verjetno uporaba pretemnega pudra v začetku srednje šole - da bi izgledala kao bolj rjava xD pa... pretanko populjene obrvi v osnovni šoli, pa pretemno emo ličenje, pa ko grem po službi direkt v fitness in imam celo brisačo rjavo ob pudra, ko si pot obrišem...

  9. Ko sem prvič začela nositi umetne trepalnice so se mi vedlo odlepile proč sredi noči ali pa sem jih nalepila previsoko, v obeh primerih sem izgledala grozno :D Enkrat se mi je med pogovarjenjem s prijateljicami v klubu ena celo odlepila in padla v kozarec fanta ki je stal zraven mene *facepalm*

  10. My make up disaster was being out in a nightclub, I went into the dimly lit toilets to touch up my make up and popped on some more bronzer. It wasn't until the pictures were uploaded on Facebook of me the next day I realised how orange I was!! I asked my friends why they didnt tell me but they said they didn't want to be rude!! I looked so silly! Now I avoid topping up my make up when I'm out and about unless I'm in a well lit area! :)

  11. Amazing giveaway.RT čopiče imam na WL že doooolgo dolgooo,tako da upam,da bo sreča na moji strani :)
    Jaz si z make upom nikol nisem delala hujših sramot..Ena,ki mi je ostala v spominu,je ko sm si letaaaa nazaj (ko še ni blo kakih sponge al drugačnih tehnik lakiranja) pobarvala nohte tako:spodnja polovica nude,zgornja rdeča..In vidi frendica na hitro moje prste in vsa panična, da mi teče kri iz nohtov.Še mene je prestrašla,šele pol sem ugotovila,da ja,je le lak (ki sem si ga sama namazala!!!).

  12. Zdaj, ko gledam nazaj je blo verjetno najbolj čudno, da sem nosila svetlo modro senčilo en čas skoz :D Ampak takrat to ni zgledalo tako slabo, recimo :P
    Ne vem, meni je najbolj smešno blo, ko sem šla 2x na faks brez maskare (ups), pač smešno mi je blo, ker sem imela celoten makeup narejen, samo maskaro sem pozabla in mi je blo fuuul čudno, sem šla takoj novo kupit vmes :P brez tega pač ne gre !
    Bi pa z veseljem mela RT čopič, ker še nimam nobenega :O

  13. Tudi jaz upam, da me doleti sreča. Drugače se pa najbolj osramočeno počutim, če se mi razmažejo ličila. Ponavadi maskara ali pa šminka. Prišlo je celo obdobje, ko sem se stalno s prstom "brisala" pod očmi, ker me je bilo strah, da sem razmazana. Mi je pa sicer največji fail maskara za v bazen. Takšna, ki ni vodoodporna, seveda. Ven prideš kot pandica.

  14. When i first got my hands on some make-up, i was blessed with some pink eyeshadow. I applied it using the crappy sponge applicator those things come with, and just coated it on. If that wasn't bad enough, i hadn't got the hang of not rubbing my eyes whilst wearing eye make-up, and ended up with huge pink circles around my eyes. it wasn't pretty & my mum still makes fun of me for it.

  15. Pri 17ih sem se barvala na črnordeče. in ko sem si z isto barvo enkrat pobarvala narastek je barva čudežno prijela živo rdeče. Seveda sem se barvala zvečer, ko so bile že vse štacune zaprte in mi mami naslednji dan ni pustila ostat doma tako, da sm mogla taka v šolo. Še par dni so me zafrkavali z ognjenim narastkom. Fail :D

  16. Nothing overly embarrassing here...just the usual fumbles as I got accustomed to applying makeup.

  18. I was watching a makeup tutorial and I wrote in the comments 'I've liked your brown eyeshadow'', then, she replied '' there's no brown eyeshadow ''.

  19. Hmm smešna zgodba. Nobene prav posebno zanimive, ampak moja uporaba makeupa v srednji šoli je bila zelo smešna. Takrat se mi pač ni zdelo nič čudno če sem totalno bleda v obraz z debelo črno obrobo okoli oči. Vedno ko vidim kake stare slike ugotovim, da sem bila precej podobna pandam. :D no sej mogoče je bil to moj cilj.

  21. My embarrassing moment was last year I'm on vacation at the beach, and I was rolling around in the sand and letting the waves hit me in my cute bikini that I had bought there for barely anything. We were there for hours and hours, and when I got back to the hotel to shower I noticed that my bikini bottom was full of sand at the front inside the fabric. It looked as though I had an enormous bush, and NO ONE told me!

  22. Ni najbolj izvirna no, ampak vseeno: osnovno-srednješolski make-upi, ki so sovpadali z mojo črno frizuro (ki je imela v OŠ spodaj še plast rdečih las :S) in črnimi oblačili. Pa seveda tisti črni nohti, ki sem ti jih že zadnjič omenila - po možnosti malo okrušeni. Brrr... Sram me je vsakič, ko vidim kakšno staro sliko. :)

  24. My most embarrassing beauty moment was probably when i accidentally used my bronzer brush as a powder brush ( it was early in the morning before school, so i was extremely tired ) and i got to school and had an orange/really tan face! it was horrible! :( haha
