Review: Real Techniques Bold Metals Makeup Brush Collection (#201, #102, #301)

I recently took a trip to my local ULTA store and saw what looked like the most gorgeous makeup brushes I ever seen! 🙂 I fell head over heels in love with the Real Techniques Bold Metals Makeup Brush Collection. Of course I have so many brushes already so I bought only a few to try out. I absolutely love them, oh and did I mention how gorgeous they are?

There are currently 7 brushes in the Bold Metals Collection; split into 3 categories:

  • SILVER (eyes): 200 Oval Shadow, 201 Pointed Crease, 202 Angled Liner
  • GOLD (base) : 100 Arched Powder, 102 Triangle Concealer
  • ROSE GOLD (finish) : 300 Tapered Blush, 301 Flat Contour

I currently purchased only 3 of the 7:

  1. 201 Pointed Crease
  2. 102 Triangle Concealer
  3. 301 Flat Contour

All the brushes are beautifully made. They are super luxurious and feel very high quality. The bristles themselves are made from the highest grade synthetic brush fibers and feel SO soft! I also noticed NO shedding whatsoever! …at least not yet.

 

Now onto my reviews…

 

201 Pointed Crease ($13):  Densely packed tapered brush GREAT for blending and getting that smokey eye!

Densely packed, tapered bristles apply eye shadow for smokey effect.

  • softer than ever bristles, for our most luxe feel to date
  • weighted for optimal control and comfort — brushes are engineered for perfect weight distribution when tipped toward the face for use
  • refined artistry cuts offer high performance for ultimate application of makeup

 

102 Triangle Concealer ($15):  This one I have to admit is a unique brush because of its non-conventional brush shape. I’d say this one is good for touching up your concealer or foundation however not exactly for applying it. The bristles are really compact and it feels a little hard or stiff when you try to brush on the concealer with it versus some other brushes that are a little more on the “softer” side.  I use the large flat side to touch up on my cheeks, forehead and chin and the more tapered side around my nose. The end result is smooth and non-streaky.

Flat edge covers large areas of the face and angled edges contour around eyes, nose and chin to mask imperfections.

UltraPlush™ high performance brushes

  • Irresistibly soft
  • Weighted brass ferrule
  • Shed-resistant properties
  • Advanced pick-up and release of makeup

301 Flat Contour ($21):  I LOVE this one too! It’s also densely packed and another fav of mine because it’s a real multi-tasker.  I’ve used it to apply cream blush, contour with powder and also buff in foundation. (two thumbs up!)

A dense head creates shadows and highlights on targeted areas of face to play up favorite features.

  • softer than ever bristles, for our most luxe feel to date
  • weighted for optimal control and comfort — brushes are engineered for perfect weight distribution when tipped toward the face for use
  • refined artistry cuts offer high performance for ultimate application of makeup

 

What makeup brushes do you use?  Do you already own some Real Techniques brushes?
