Real Techniques Bold Metal Brushes

Hey lovelies hope your all well 🙂 You may have seen these brushes  on instagram and blogs for some time now, the real techniques bold metals are so so gorgeous!! I believe these have been out since early 2015 but I only got these earlier this year so I have had plenty of time to trial them. First off I love the metallic appearance of them (that’s what got me hooked in the first place), the brushes are quite long too so they are easy to use and they blend so so you can see from the photo I picked up quite a few of these brushes. I believe some of them were in a set and then I got the others as individuals ) The bristles of these brushes are so so soft and feel luxurious to touch. Especially created by Sam and Nic of pixiwoo these brushes are a must have in your collection. You can actually pick these up from the real techniques website or high street retailers such as superdrug and boots 🙂

The brushes I picked up are all labelled by numbers so I  will list the number and type of brush below…

100 Arched powder brush- This retails for £17.24 on the real techniques website. It has a domed cut that is designed for flawless application of pressed or loose powders

103 Angled powder brush-Designed to blend seamlessly and contour the face. I believe I got this in a set and can’t find an individual price for it. Again you can use this for pressed or loose powders

101Triangle foundation brush– This retails for £15.60 on the real techniques website. This brush is designed for dual use and is described as a flat edge brush that covers large areas of the face and great for contour around the eyes and nose

200 Oval shadow brush– This retails for £10.67 on the real techniques website. It is described as a firm slanted head brush that fits close to the lash line. This is perfect for packing on eyeshadow all over the lid. I love this brush so much. I also use it for adding concealer or powder to brighten under my eyes

201 Pointed crease brush– Again on the real techniques website this retails for £10.67 too. It is described as a densely packed brush with tapered bristles perfect for creating smokey eye looks 🙂 You could also use this to add an inner corner highlight or colour on the bottom lash line 

301 Pointed contour brush– This retails for £17.24 on the real techniques site. As you may have already noticed this is designed for contouring. So when used on the cheekbones, sides of the nose and jaw line it creates shadows and highlights features of the face. I was bit apprehensive at first with this brush as I didn’t want a sharp line but with plenty of practice it actually blends well, it just takes time to get used to the brush

300 Tapered blush brush– This brush is advertised as a blush brush but I find this works fantastically well for highlighting. It has a tapered finish to it that is perfect for applying highlighter to your cheekbones. On the real techniques website it retails for £15.60 and the bristles are fab for showing blush and highlight colour 

I believe you can get some of these brushes in sets so you may not have to purchase them all individually. Would I recommend them???…definitely apart from the two I own from Charlotte Tilbury these brushes are my most used. There so multi-functional and affordable for the high street too.  Sam and nic have so many different brush sets in their real techniques range, I think they have recently released the multi task brushes which you can pick up online and in store too…

Have you tried these brushes, what did you think about them??
