BLEND BLEND BLEND!

real techniques bold metals

Makeup brushes are make or break for me to create a flawless makeup look.  In the era of thousands and thousands (even… millions?) of hours of YouTube beauty tutorials, there have never been more amazing tools out there to help us achieve our favorite looks from the ‘Tube stars.

I love watching YouTube beauty tutorials (guilty pleasure when trying to fall asleep at night!) and stumbled upon this video by the Pixiwoo girls–I knew I wanted to try out the brush that her foundation look fabulous at 2:57.

I stumbled upon the Bold Metals collection by accident during a Walmart trip–San Francisco has been in a MAJOR heatwave lately; thankfully Walmart was the only retailer to have fans in stock because the entire bay area is SOLD OUT??  Honestly–I was surprised to find these brushes at Walmart because they are a higher-end beauty tool!  I decided to bring home the entire collection because they were just so pretty–I’m a sucker for anything rose gold.

I tried the set out the next day before meeting my friends for brunch–risky move trying new brushes before having to look good–but I loved them!  With less expensive brushes I’m concerned that the bristles would be really rough and harsh on my skin but these were so soft and luxe.  My favorites of the bunch are the 301 flat contour brush because it’s unlike anything I own and sculpts out some major cheekbones, and the 201 pointed crease brush because it gets right in your eyelid crease to smoke out your eyeshadow so well.

Overall I’m so excited that these Bold Metals brushes are becoming part of my beauty toolset, I really love the quality for the price.  I would recommend these brushes if you’re looking to switch up your brushes or add a new type of brush to your collection.

Sharing is caring, right?  I’m hooking you guys up with a chance to win one of two $100 gift cards towards your own Bold Metals brushes so you can contour and blend blend blend too!  Enter via the widget below to get in on the action…good luck!

      I felt the same way at first but they clean off very easily so they can be put back on display!

  3. Ooh I love finding a good steal, especially by accident! I am so glad you found a fan, living in Napa we are embracing this same heatwave, so miserable! I just cannot wait for the cool mornings that fall hopefully brings.
