I have been working my way through the new luxury brushes from Sam and Nic Chapman and in this post I have the Real Techniques Bold Metals Platinum brushes. There’s the 200 Oval Shadow Brush, the 201 Pointed Crease Brush and the 202 Angled Liner Brush. Check out the gorgeous gold brushes HERE.
Real Techniques Bold Metals Platinum 200 Oval Shadow Brush
I shall start with this little beauty, the Oval Shadow Brush. It’s a great brush.
The size of the 200 is just great for single stroke application as it covers the lid perfectly. It is beautifully tapered so you can use it under the eye and also right into the socket line for defining the crease.
It can be used with powder and cream products which also makes it incredibly good for under-eye concealer. I actually think that’s my favourite way to use it as it gets into the crevices perfectly and leaves a really flawless finish. It’s a brilliant all rounder.
Real Techniques Bold Metals Platinum 201 Pointed Crease Brush
I find brushes like these incredibly useful. Because my lids are slightly hooded I find that I need to be quite precise when contouring my eyes.
It really does fit perfectly into the socket. You pick up the product with the very tip, and then the rounded sides blend out the product seamlessly. It is so good! Again, this can be used with powder and cream and is also great with concealer. I think this one is the answer for me for defined eyes!
Real Techniques Bold Metals Platinum 202 Angled Liner Brush
I always find angled liner brushes a bit unexciting but this one is so good! I was really surprised how much I liked it! It might even be my favourite of the trio.
This brush is really firm but in exactly the way you want it to be. It pushes product, be it powder or gel liner, right into the lash line and right up close to the lashes for a seamless look. I always struggle to fill gaps so I absolutely love this! It is also brilliant for blending and smoking out products.
It can also be used for brows and you’ll be able to draw in tiny hairs with it.
