Real Techniques Bold Metals Makeup Brushes Review & $100 Gift Card Giveaway! | #MyMakeupShakeUp

August 30, 2015·

I absolutely LOVE makeup! I love playing with makeup and I love the art of makeup and I just love how much fun makeup can be. No, I don’t do my makeup every day, that’s for sure… but when I have the chance, I love to go in my bathroom and play around with different looks. It’s relaxing to me. Is that weird?

One thing I learned early on as I was learning about makeup was the importance of using good BRUSHES. Quality makeup brushes can really make it or break it when it comes to good makeup application.

However, the downside is… makeup brushes can be EXPENSIVE. No joke. GOOD makeup brushes can really cost you a pretty penny. I’ve seen makeup brushes run as high as $60-$100… PER BRUSH. Crayyyyyy cray. No one wants to spend that much money on anything… let alone makeup brushes.

Real Techniques Bold Metals Makeup Brushes Review - #MyMakeupShakeUp #BoldMetals #spon (1)I discovered Real Techniques makeup brushes a few years ago and fell in love with them! Then they released the Bold Metals collection and at first, I got just the basic oval shadow brush. I’ve been using it for a few months and LOVE it. It is, BY FAR, my favorite makeup brush in my collection.

Well, here’s the awesome thing… the whole collection just got launched and you don’t have to go to MAC, Sephora, or Ulta and break the bank to get high quality, luxury makeup brushes…

Real Techniques Bold Metals Makeup Brushes Review - #MyMakeupShakeUp #BoldMetals #spon (9)Let me let you in on a little secret… these luxury brushes I’ve been talking about can be found at Walmart! WHAAAAT?! Yeah. I said the same thing when I found out… Who would have thought you could get top shelf makeup brushes at WALMART? Certainly not me… but it’s safe to say I was excited.

Quality brushes for half the price? Yes, please.

I wanna give you a rundown of the brushes in the collection. I didn’t do a makeup tutorial with them (although if that’s something y’all would like to see, PLEASE let me know in the comments!)… but I wanna show you each brush, what it’s purpose is, and the price.

Now, ALL of these brushes have a few things in common… 

  • They’re EXTREMELY well made and sturdy. I absolutely LOVE the handles. Chic looking, easy to grip…
  • The bristles are SO soft. SOOOO soft. Like silk. BUT, each brush has the right amount of bristles for the brush’s purpose…

Here are the brushes…

101 Triangle Foundation – $23.42

Made for dual duty: flat edge covers large areas of face, while the angled edges contour around eyes and nose. I love the shape of this brush. It’s so unique!
