Talk about a big release for 2015! WOW, I tweeted about these and my twitter exploded. The very very talked about Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection have landed in the UK and they sold out almost instantly and I'm not surprised. The Pixiwoo gals have gone premium and with a price bracket of £10-£25 they are definitely not going to be affordable for everyone, but they explain why this is in more detail in this video here.
So whats different about these to the regular line, other than the price? Well, visually they are a lot longer, they are metallic in colour and all round just damn beautiful to look at. The brush hairs are so super soft and you can tell a higher grade of synthetic has been used and when I say they are soft, its like OMG I could just sit here all day stroking my face with it, soft!
I have 3 of the brushes from the line the, 200 Oval Shadow Brush, which is great for a sweep of colour across the lids but also great for blending out eyeshadow. The 300 Tapered Blush Brush, my least favourite of the 3 if I'm honest, its pretty small in size, so great for detail work but for my big cheeks just slightly on the small side, but does pick up a great amount of product and lastly and the star of the show for me is the 301 Flat Contour Brush, and oh my, its wonderful, its great with cream and powder products. I don't have anything else like this brush in my collection and I'm so glad I got it, if you like to contour you need this brush in your collection!!!
I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with the lovely ladies behind the Pixiwoo Empire and you know what, I know how incredibly hard they work on these products and how much love and dedication that also goes into it. So well done Sam & Nic another great release from you and I cannot wait to see what else follows this year!
Ps- They clean up beautifully too!
Do you own any of the Real Techniques brushes? Which ones are your favourites?
