REVIEW: Real Technique’s Bold Metal’s Collection!

There’s no doubt about the fact that Real Techniques are one of the best brush brands out there who consistently produce incredible quality and also one of a kind, unique brushes for specific aspects of makeup application.  I for one have never seen a 3d-triangle shaped foundation brush before!

I always look forward to their new releases and the Bold Metals collection had me drooling from the get go!

There are 7 new brushes in this range, 3 for eyes, 2 for base & 2 for cheeks, all of which are stunning with long beveled metallic brush ends designed with a weighty feel for smooth and easy makeup application!

My favourites are:

300 Tapered Blush Brush – such a unique design which applies blusher like a dream!  The shape is just perfect to apply & blend colour to the apples of my cheeks.  I’ve also used it for contouring and it’s just as great.

201 Pointed Crease Brush – a super soft rounded dome brush which makes applying and blending shadow into the crease of the eye so easy.

These are a little more expensive than the core collection Real Techniques brushes but worth it for their design and unique shape which makes putting on makeup a really lovely experience!

Will you be picking up these in store?

    I need these in my life… definitely will be making a purchase.

    These brushes look stunning. I think if I were going to purchase any it would be the 201 Pointed Crease brush and the 300 Tapered Blush Brush. Although the powder brush looks nice too! xo

    gorgeous brushes! I do love a Real Techniques brush set! The sleek packaging is definitely up my street. Thanks for sharing! Since I have hooded-asian eyes, the 201 Pointed Crease Brush looks interesting x

    I think they're gorgeous, but I have to be honest – the 4 I've bought, seem just as good as their counterparts from the regular collection!

    Hi! I wonder that 300 tapered blush brush can be useable for cream blushes (like mufe hd cream blushes or mac cremeblend) ??

    I have only just invested in my very first starter set for eyes and planning to get the blusher set next but these look gorgeous. I'm so glad I discovered brushes – it really does make applying foundation and eye shadow so so much easier

  13. February 15, 2015 / 10:12 pm

    Those are so gorgeous I just feel them calling to me! Thanks for the great review, these look like a dream to use!

    The brushes look gorgeous. I think I might have to at least pick up that Pointed Crease Brush, as I love doing eyeshadow!!

  18. February 16, 2015 / 1:32 am

    I have the 301 if I remember correctly and love it! it's so soft and helps applying my eye shadow a lot! I do want more though in the future! Xx

    I love the very expensive look of this collection! So far I've been eyeing their powder brush, blush brush, and contour brush. The eye blending brush looks very attractive too. They're just perfection!

    I really love the make-over they gave the new brushes, they look so much prettier and more expensive now. I've been reading mixed reviews about the quality though, but overall most people seem to be positive.
