Hello lovely ladies!
I really love the Real Techniques brushes for two reasons: price/quality correlation and also the fact they are easy to buy, online as well as offline. I have about 10 brushes by this brand from the main collection and I was willing to try out their new brush from the new Bold Metals collection. So without any delay I ordered the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Bold Metals Tapered Shadow #203 which I’m actually going to make a review of today.
The brush was packed into a plastic box with all the information about the product. But since I found storage and transporting the brush in this box very inconvenient and took up too much room, I quickly threw the box away.
The entire Real Techniques Bold Metals collection definitely stands out thanks to its stylish metal design. The handle is of silver color. It feels like plastic, though very sturdy and good quality plastic. The ferrule is metal.
All the brushes by RT are made of taklon. It’s hypoallergenic and vegan-friendly.
The bristles are very soft to the touch and they don’t get frizzy. If the bristles bend (for example while transporting) you simply need to wet the brush for it to come to its normal condition once and let it dry.
For the time that I’ve been using this babe, the brush hasn’t lost a bristle during eyeshadow application or while washing.
The brush is oval and becomes narrower to the ferrule.
It’s of middle pack, though I don’t take it as a disadvantage, since thanks to that pack the brush becomes so versatile.
I’ve found two options of use of this brush in my makeup: to apply cream-textured eyeshadows and to blend the dry textures out. And you know, it does this job brilliantly.
The brush doesn’t erase the pigment from my eyes and never takes in too much of the product. Thanks to these factors the blending of eyeshadows is softer and cleaner. I also use it to darken the crease but if you have small eyes the brush may be too big for you.
I also love blending the creamy eyeshadows with this brush. I can easily get the soft smokey eyes effect and even patch pigments with it.
But still application of dry and creamy textures is difficult for me. I guess that’s because of the pack. There aren’t enough of the bristles to apply these textures densely.

And here with the Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box.
The brush washes off easily and never loses its bristles or shape. I also like washing it with brush cleansers like Make Up For Ever Brush Сleanser.
I like the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Bold Metals Tapered Shadow #203 Brush very much. For a few months of use the brush was always doing its job perfectly. I also can recommend you try applying the concealer and highlighter with it.
(though the price varies depending on the place of purchase)
Thanks for having a look at my review. Have a good day and nice shopping!
