Review: Metallic Face Brushes (Powder, Blush and Contour)15:35
A while ago I was browsing through Ebay, because I was searching for some eye brushes that I already bought. I came upon these rose gold and gold metallic looking brushes. Of course my initial thought was Real Techniques Bold Metals dupes. If you compare them, the shapes do look very similar. Of course, I decided to buy three of them.
The brushes have different prices. Powder brush is around 2.50€, blush brush 2.30€ and contour brush 2.40€. I bought it here.
Real Techniques brushes have weighted handles. I am not sure if they are also actually made out of metal or not.
Ebay version has the same shades as originals. Powder brush is gold and contour and blush brush are rose gold. All of these look metallic, but are in fact plastic. They are heavier in the front, where there are bristles, so I am not sure if that means that they are weighted. It might just be the fact that at the end brush is thinner and therefor lighter there.
The bristles are synthetic and white at the tips. Towards the handle bristles correspond handle colors. So rose gold brushes have pink bristles and gold brush has yellow bristles. The white bristles are suppose to make it easier for you to see how much product you have on.
Bristles are all very soft. I would say that those are definitely one of the softest brushes that I own. The quality is mind blowing compared to the price.
Powder brush has a dome shape. Bristles are very soft and it's sort of a regular powder brush size. I think the size is just perfect for my face. You can also fit it under the eyes. It picks up the product nicely and feels super soft on the face. You can also use it as a bronzer brush.
Blush brush is fairly small, compared to some of my other blush brushes. It has tapered really soft bristles and they are fairly dense. A lot denser than powder brush. This means you can really pack on the brush. Because the bristles are soft, you can also create a softer look. This brush could also be used as a powder, highlighter or contour brush. It's small enough to be used in all smaller precise areas.
Contour brush is very interesting. It has a flat shape of bristles. The bristles are definitely the most dense out of all other brushes. It's really packed. This way you can create some serious contour. You can also use it as a highlighter brush. It still helps to blend the line, if you use ti lightly, so you don't have a straight line on your cheeks. It's also small enough that it fits nicely under the cheek bone area.
I think those are one of the best brushes that I ever bought on Ebay. It doesn't even matter if they tried to make dupes or not. The bristles are extremely soft and they don't shed, when I'm washing them. I think the handles are well made and super pretty with the shiny metallic finish. I can't say nothing bad about them and the price is ridiculous. If you're a makeup brush hoarder like me, you need to get these. I might even get some other eye brushes next.
