PurchasedIt's been a while since my last Real Techniques makeup brushes review and to be honest with you I am not quite sure why because the quality for the price you pay is pretty awesome and Bold Metal Collection is just absolutely stunning looking!
I've been drooling over this collection for a while now but it wasn't until my recent visit to Ross where I saw this essential brush kit for almost half the price ($29.99!) that made me want to purchase it and I am so glad I did.
I usually try to not over-buy makeup brushes that I know I probably won't use too often. I do have my favorite brushes that I am using on daily basis and I am quite picky about their shape and feel and things like that. I did need a new blush brush though so I was excited that I could find one in this brush kit.
Real Techniques Bold Metal Collection Essentials
Real Techniques Bold Metal brushes are absolutely beautifu. I couldn't get over the fact how much I love the look of these as well as how soft and fluffy the bristles are. This essential kit only comes with 3 brushes but they offer more styles on their website.
103 ANGLED POWDERThis is the largest out of the three. 103 is super soft, fluffy but dense enough and I think makes for a great bronzing brush. It is a bit too big for contouring in my opinion but it will work very well as the all-over glow bronzing brush.
300 TAPERED BLUSH
I didn't expect to like this brush so much but it is my favorite out of the three. It works awesome as a contour, blush as well as highlighter brush. It really does a great job at blending the product onto the skin as well as distributing color evenly. I highly recommend this one!
200 OVAL SHADOW
I love 2 in 1 eye brushes that you can apply the eyeshadow with as well as blend it out. This one reminds me a lot of my Sigma E25 brush. 200 Oval Shadow does a decent job at both so it's a great brush to have, especially if you do not like carrying too many makeup brushes in your collection.
