The new Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection is another reason for us to come together to discuss the quality and purpose of makeup brushes.
Description Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection
The Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection is a limited edition collection that can be withdrawn from sale at any time. Therefore, do not be surprised when, six months later, you decide to buy a set, and then it turns out that it is no longer on sale. The set consists of 7 brushes: 4 for face and 3 for eye makeup. I will tell you about several at once.
Real Techniques Bold Metals 200 Oval Shadow Brush
Pay attention to the metal handles of the brushes. They are made very high quality, which makes them significant in the eyes of others. They are striking and there are no problems finding brushes on the makeup artist’s desktop.
The brush is designed for applying cream or dry eyeshadow.
Its oval shape is a great idea, but due to its large diameter, the brush extends beyond the movable eyelid and … paints more than it should be. And because of the thickly typed pile, it does not pick up and gives away the product poorly.
If it were a little smaller and thinner, then the price would not have been to it. And so the brush raises too many questions …
Therefore, it is convenient for me to apply with it only the base color of the shadows on the entire eyelid – the movable and fixed parts.
I have no complaints about the quality of the pile – thornless, soft, tightly typed.
How Necessary Is This Brush
Given that the brush is good for applying only the base color, there is no need for it. Any other brush can handle this task.
Real Techniques 201 Pointed Crease Brush
The Pencil Brush is one of the useful eye makeup brushes I’ve discussed here. But how useful this brush is is a big question …
And again the problem is in its diameter and pile thickness. It is very large for pinpoint processing. The eyes are frightened at the sight of her. To paint over the lower eyelid is not an option, but the upper one is inconvenient.
Thickness and firmness make the brush clumsy. It is inconvenient to work with it, that I decided to abandon its use in eye makeup, leaving it for applying lipstick. The effect of blended lips is beautifully created with its help.
There are no questions to the pile: thornless, tightly gathered.
How Necessary Is This Brush
As much as often you paint your lips, avoiding the crisp contouring that is possible with flat lip makeup brushes.
Real Techniques Bold Metals 300 Tapered Blush Brush
The brush is designed for applying blush and, it should be noted, it does its job well.
The flat surface allows the blush to be applied with a polishing motion. Like this? Take a brush in your hands, pick up the blush with the flat part and apply the blush with stroking movements.
This method is perfect for sensitive skin of the face, which reacts sharply to the “rubbing” movements of the hand, provoking redness.
The pile is thornless, tightly knit, very delicate and soft.
The need for this brush
The brush is suitable for applying blush, sculpting the face and even for local application of powder. Densely typed pile allows you to cope with lightly pigmented blush, and white color makes it possible to control the amount typed on the brush.
The main difference between the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection and the basic Real Techniques brushes is not only the pile of questionable shape, but also its quality. It is very soft and thornless, which I can attribute to these brushes among the most pleasant artificial bristle brushes to work with.
I do not consider all brushes necessary for the reasons that I wrote about above. Therefore, I recommend that you carefully consider the choice of each brush, so as not to regret the money spent.
