Real Techniques are pretty much the only make up brushes I use. The original collection is very affordable and brilliant quality. It's one of those beauty items that once I bought I really wondered what I did before owning! Real Techniques are incredibly popular and this year the range was expanded to include a new luxury collection of brushes.
I think it's important to mention that the Bold Metals brushes are aimed more towards those working in make up artistry or someone with more make up experience etc. Of course anyone can use them, I'm in no way a pro myself, but these brushes are definitely different to the original Real Techniques range. The collection is beautiful to look at but I'm not completely in love with the whole range.

I've been trying out a few of the Bold Metals brushes and actually have varying opinions on each brush I've tried. My favourite by far is the 201 Pointed Crease brush. The 201 Brush is part of the Platinum Bold Metals line up, which consists of brushes for applying eye make up.

I love the look and feel of the 201 Pointed Crease, like all the Bold Metals brushes it has a weighted feel that I really like. The handle is much longer than the standard RT brushes and generally has a much more luxe and professional look and feel. I love the sophisticated platinum metal handle that is tapered at the ends to fit easily into MUA brush belts and holders.

The 201 is a densely packed, stiff and tapered brush. This brush is brilliant for applying shadow in the socket and for blending out. The shape of the brush means you can use the tip and sides of the brush for different things. It packs on the colour where you want it and is great for softening the edge for a professional looking smokey eye. I also like to use this to smudge and soften liner and shadow both on top and under my eye. It's a fair sized brush so if you have very small eyes it may not be best for you. However I've also tried it for blending concealer and it works really well!

I'm not completely in love with the whole range but really do love the 201 Pointed Crease!
Have you tried any of the Bold Metals brushes?
