Review: Real Techniques Bold Metals

As soon as I saw the Real Techniques Bold Metals collection I knew I had to get my hands on them and it took me a while as I only wanted to buy the two I really wanted the most and sadly everytime I went to get it it was sold out but alas I did manage to get my hands on two finally and have been using them for a good month or so now and I am totally in love!

Being a huge fan already of the Real Techniques brushes I had real high hopes for these not only are they beautiful to look they are super soft and just scream luxury to me, They are a lot more pricey than the usual Real Techniques brushes and i'm not usually one to spend on high end luxury brushes but as I do love my real techniques I could justify spending that sort of money as I was pretty sure that I would not be dissapointed.

The two brushes I wanted to try first were the tapered blush brush 300 and the oval shadow brush 200, The one thing I was unsure about was whether they would feel heavy but they are actually quite light and have a weighted end for in hand balance and better control, The actual design and shape of the handle is to stop it rolling of surfaces which I loved as I find my other brushes always roll off my dressing table. The bristles are individually tapered and synthetic and are so soft they just glide on your skin and feel so gentle when your applying makeup.

My brushes in the pictures do need washing but usually the ends are white so you can see how much product you have on them which I think is perfect for me especially with eyeshadow as I do tend to get a little heavy handed and it lets me see how much I have actually picked up before I apply it to my face. The synthetic tips make them great at picking up product and to gradually build up a flawless finish.

I don't think I can even express how much I love these brushes they really are fantastic and make what ever product I apply to my face look flawless and are definitely worth paying that bit extra not only for the results they give but for how they look too and I will definitely invest in the rest of the collection and can't wait to try more of them!

The different brush types in the collection are colour coded, The base brushes are gold, the finsh brushes are rose gold and the Eye brushes are paltinum.
