SHOP MY WARDROBE

Beautiful, Brilliant & Bold

The few brushes I have (for now,) from the new Real Techniques Bold Metals collection I love. I love the look, the feel, and how they apply my make up. The bold metals collection brushes are slightly more pricey than the original collection, but still not as highly priced as brushes from say Bobbi Brown or NARS which reach the £40+ mark. It's totally understandable that a lot of people don't want to pay that much for bristles on a stick, so Real Techniques give you that amazing quality, for about £15 less. These brushes are dreamy to have on display, a few are silver, a few gold and a few rose gold, I want the entire collection to stand upright on my dressing table just to look pretty.  

The first Bold Metals brush I purchased was the Triangle Foundation Brush (£22.00,) also known as 101. 
About three years ago I tried applying foundation with a brush and I hated it, it would not blend, and it looked streaky as hell, so it put me off for all these years until I decided to try again, and that's when I bought this. Thank God I give it another go! 
Funnily enough, I actually love this most to apply my NARS tinted moisturiser, it gives it a tiny little extra coverage than I get with my fingers, it also blends the cream faster and smoother. The shape of the brush is very clever, the triangle makes side of the nose application less of a hassle. The only downside to this brush is that I feel the need to wash it every week, you can see all the products building up on it that turn it orange, which makes me feel like I'm spreading germs all over my face. Nasty. 


I then shortly after added a silver finished brush to the mix, which is the Pointed Crease brush, for only £12.00.
This was so hard to get my hands on! I visited several Boots stores and it was always out of stock. I wanted it so much I ended up ordering online, paying £3+ to deliver such a tiny weightless package. Nevertheless, it's become one of my favourites, must have brushes and it's made my smokey eye game strong. As you can see, it needs a good wash, the poor thing is supposed to be white.

Only a week ago I purchased the Tapered Blush brush for £24.00. Honestly I only bought this because I was bored of the original pink handled blush brush from RT, and who can resist rose gold? Brush porn. This applies my blusher heavier than my previous blush brush, it gives a more intense look that may require a little blending if you don't like a lot of colour. The brush being tapered makes it great for bringing it up towards your cheekbones and under your highlight. Not to mention how soft the bristles are.

I can't wait to expand my Bold Metals family, if you have any of these brushes, do you love them and why?
