REAL TECHNIQUES PART II - BOLD METALS COLLECTION, FEAT. 202 ANGLED LINER, 201 POINTED CREASE + 301 FLAT CONTOUR REVIEW !


HAPPY SUNDAY AND WEEKENDS EVERYBODY! 

I am so super excited to share with you all on Part II of the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection. I hope you enjoy reading x

A few months ago, I first tried out one brush from the Bold Metals Collection by Real Techniques and I was definitely amazed by the first time experiences of using the brush. If you missed out on my review for the 101 Triangle Foundation brush, catch up reading right here

In today's review, I am more thrilled to share with you all with some more of their Bold Metals Collection range by Real Techniques which I really thought were.,,(how do I put this)... 
AH-MAZING! I am sure by now as you skip through Priceline or through the online stores, you might have come across Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection range. They're sleek and have a metallic shine and finish to the handles of the brushes. There's three bold metallic colours which are: gold, rose gold and silver which have been colour coded by the area of application and are definitely a major hit for professional make-up artists out there. 

What makes these Real Technique Bold Metals Collection range so unique and appealing is that they're very luxe looking and have the softest synthetic brush fibres to them which in effect provide the highest quality of precision to your make-up application. In other words, the finish to your overall make-up will be flawless. 

Erica Galea for Chemcorp International says: “We’re thrilled to be bringing Australian consumers the Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection™. Real Techniques is a global leader in makeup brushes, and this new collection takes it up another level with products that are both aesthetically beautiful, and provide the highest-quality, precision application - definitely every makeup bag’s new must-have.”

These luxe high-end collection from Real Techniques features sleek metal looking brushes which uses the highest grade of synthetic brush fibres to them which is what makes them feel super soft to use. There is definitely a luxurious feel to using the brushes and what's more is that the brushes feature ergonomically weighted handles for the best comfort and control so that you always get a flawless and precise application. 

I looked to put three brushes from the Bold Metal Collection range by Real Techniques including of the following: 
  • Bold Metals Collection, 202 Angled Liner 
  • Bold Metals Collection. 301 Flat Contouring
  • Bold Metals Collection, 201 Pointed Crease

Check out my thoughts below to see whether this worked for me or not, 


       
  BOLD METALS COLLECTION. 202 ANGLED LINER 

Featured as a silver metallic coloured brush, it falls under the coded category of eyes. This is a very small, firm brush which has a slanted tip (head) which looks to fit very close to the lash line for a smooth and even application of an eye liner. Also, this brush is ideal for filling in your brows as you can use "flicking" style to create a natural brow look. Despite the brush being thin, it does not even feel sharp when lined against the eyes or skin. I usually like to line my lower lash line with a soft toned eye-shadow to really bring out the eyes a little more.

Another positive aspect to using the angled liner brush was that not a single bristle fell out when I was washing them so it was absolutely impressive to see that the bristles held on strong.  There are also no issues to the shedding of the brush itself so it's definitely worth to invest in if you're looking for a good quality type of brush. 

POSITIVES:
  • Very firm and thin. 
  • Has a slanted tip to it. 
  • Easy to clean.
  • Does not shed. 
  • Ergonomic designed brush. 
  • Beautiful, sleek silver colour. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Although this range may be in the luxury high end price range, it's definitely worth to invest in if you're looking for a good set of quality brushes! They will last longer in the long run and also give you a flawless and better coverage for your make-up application. 
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Create a smokey blending eye-effect by drawing in a "wing" from the corners of outer eye using a dark brown eyeshadow. 
  • Can be used to line the eyes using gel liner. 
  • Look to clean your brushes after every use for maximum cleanliness and hygiene.

  BOLD METALS COLLECTION. 301 FLAT CONTOUR 

Featured as the 301 Flat Contour brush from the Bold Metals Collection range, it's colour coded in a beautiful rose gold colour. (My first impression was that I've never seen the brushes in a rose gold colour which were very appealing!) The brush is very shiny and glossy to look at and what girl would not want to check this contouring brush out because after all, contouring is so in this season. 

The Flat Contour brush features a very dense head that helps to create shadows and highlights on targeted areas. The brush definitely picks up an adequate amount of powder which I used for my bronzers and blushes. This is a great feature to the brush because you don't have to keep dabbing into your bronzers and powders to get more product. So in a way, it somewhat balances itself out - that is with the brush you tend to use less product which means that you don't run out of the certain powders as quickly as you think you would. The brush is designed to help you to create contours with its dense and narrow shaped head and also look to help you highlight any targeted areas. 

Overall I felt that this was my favourite brush to play around with and it's so useful for when I am wanting to create more dimension to my overall look. I love how soft the bristles are and most importantly of how well the brush is shaped. It's designed to be the perfect brush for the cheekbones and this is certainly useful for all of your contouring and highlighting purposes. Not only is this used on the cheekbones but you can also use this on the bridge of your nose - making it very multi-functional. 

POSITIVES:
  • Has a very dense head that is designed to pick up enough product with just one dab. 
  • Effective for contouring and highlighting purposes. 
  • Does not shed easily. 
  • Ergonomic designed brush. 
  • Beautiful, sleek rose gold colour. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Although this range may be in the luxury high end price range, it's definitely worth to invest in if you're looking for a good set of quality brushes! They will last longer in the long run and also give you a flawless and better coverage for your make-up application. 
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Dab into bronzers, blushes and powders to really contour the sides of your cheeks and nose.
  • Look to clean your brushes after every use for maximum cleanliness and hygiene.

BOLD METALS COLLECTION. 201 POINTED CREASE BRUSH


Featuring 201 Pointed Crease Brush by Real Techniques from the Bold Metals Collection, we have here a Pointed crease brush which definitely ideal for blending purposes. It's a silver coloured brush which falls into the eyes category. 

This is a very dense packed brush that features tapered bristles. It's effective for when you're wanting to apply eye shadow and then sweep the colours in to create a smoked eyed effect. I used the Pointed Crease brush with a neutral (light brown and pale cream shadow) with a darker eye shadow (dark brown) and once I blended both colours, I got a really nice flawless and blended effect to my eyes with little effort to it. I feel that it's definitely essential to ensure that you always look to use the right brushes otherwise, you'll spend a long time trying to create a certain smokey-eyed effect. This is an ideal crease brush which I really love to use. It certainly feels very luxe to hold and the grip gives me optimal control over the handling of the brush itself. The brush is not too big which is a great aspect to using this brush for creasing purposes. 

Overall, I love a good crease brush that simply does the job for me. By paying a little extra more for a good quality brush, it's definitely worth it if you're in the beauty market for good quality brushes. This line of the Bold Metals Collection is so worthwhile to have and they definitely look like they will be lasting longer. 

POSITIVES:
  • Has a dense packed head. 
  • Has tapered bristles. 
  • Quality of the brush feels super soft and very durable. 
  • Definitely ideal for blending purposes such as creating a smoke eyed effect. 
  • Does not shed easily. 
  • Ergonomic designed brush. 
  • Beautiful, sleek silver colour. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Although this range may be in the luxury high end price range, it's definitely worth to invest in if you're looking for a good set of quality brushes! They will last longer in the long run and also give you a flawless and better coverage for your make-up application. 
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • To be used when blending out eyeshadow such as contrasting colours (neutral shades) and (dark coloured shades). 
  • Look to clean your brushes after every use for maximum cleanliness and hygiene.
