The makeup brushes dreams are made of…

DSC01443Perusing the interweb for things I needed to buy (*ahem*), I saw that Boots currently has an offer of the week that I could not refuse…three Real Techniques Bold Metal Brushes plus a cute clutch bag for £30!!!!!!! (rrp £64). I already have four of the Bold Metals brushes. I love the super soft white bristles that wash completely clean and the weighty feel of them in my hand making me feel like a pro! I snapped this set up immediately as I have been wanting to get my hands on the 300 tapered brush which was included in it. For only £6 extra than this brush costs individually, I got two other full-sized brushes plus a clutch bag, although that’s unlikely to ever be used. A bargain if ever there was one and total justification for my spending habits!



  • 301 angled powder brush – this gold-coloured brush is exclusive to this set. It has a large fluffy angled head perfect for applying powder to my t-zone. I love everything about this brush and can’t wait to try it!
  • 300 tapered brush – this stunning rose-gold coloured brush is perfect for contouring or highlighting and potentially for applying blusher although the head is a bit small. This was the one I was really after when I bought this set. Now I have my hands on it I think I will try it for contouring first!
  • 200 oval shadow brush – I am super happy to have a second one of these silver-coloured brushes. It is a really useful large flat brush and one that is in use most days. I like applying single colour washes with it particularly when using creme eye shadows and shadow sticks. It deposits and blends the product effortlessly…a must-have for my makeup bag!

I am not sure how much longer this offer lasts. Even if it has ended I highly recommend you try the Bold Metals brushes out…maybe add then to your Christmas list and see if Santa can get his hands on them! 😉
