The Most Talked About Makeup Brushes Ever | Real Techniques Bold Metals

Wednesday, 4 March 2015



The Bold Metals brushes by Real Techniques and the Chapman sisters. Obvs.  If I had to use one word to describe these babies, it would be ooof!  I would never have thought a makeup brush could have the ability be a beautiful object that I would lust over for weeks, but that happened, and as worrying as it sounds, I don't think I was alone.

If you follow me on instagram, you will have seen that we were sent some for the Deal or No Deal makeup room, we loved them, so when I saw them in my local boots I had to grab the others!

The brushes are cruelty free, synthetic hair, the softest brushes I have pretty much ever used.  These are aimed at professional makeup artists with a higher price point than the standard range of real techniques brushes but are still reasonably priced for the quality and I have no doubt that millions of Pixiwoo fans have been picking them up too.  They have been made with a triangular shaped handle with the edges making them unable to roll off your makeup station - simple but genius!  My favourite thing about these brushes has to be the beautiful metallic finish and the way they have been weighted, it makes them such a pleasure to use and hold.  The brush hair itself is super duper soft and perfectly shaped to pick up product, appropriate for each different brush purpose.  My favourites have to be the arched powder brush (£25) and the tapered blush brush (£24) simply for their softness, size and shape, there is room in my kit for quite a few more!  The oval shadow brush (£15) is lovely for applying shadow all over the lid as well as blending out edges and the flat contour brush (£22) is unlike any other contour brush I have, its extremely densely packed so you want a light hand when dipping it in to product but the softness of the bristles makes its blending capabilities really good.

Its no surprise that I love them and I haven't heard one bad review yet, apart from a few complaints about the price but I really don't see the problem with the price for professional quality brushes.  I'd like to see some concealer and lip brushes added to the collection as well as some buffing style foundation brushes.  No doubt more essential, don't-know-how-I lived-without-it brushes will be added soon.

Available in Boots stores in the UK and Ulta in the US.

Do you own any Bold Metals brushes?

  1. I have their eye brushes and I love them, but they're certainly not as pretty as these!
