Refined artistry cuts offer high performance and mastery of any look. Let your brush do the work of perfect makeup application. Color-coded system corresponds to the key steps of makeup application:

  • Gold = Base
  • Platinum = Eye

        I love Real Techniques brushes. They work well and are a great value. These brushes are from their slightly more expensive line but are still a great value especially paired with the Ulta sales. Overall brush is very soft and does not shed. Slightly heavy but still pretty easy to use.

            not the best

            Comments about Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush:

            I bought this in hope of not purchasing the MAC 135 brush. I love the shape and density of the bristles but after one washing, the bristles lost their shape. The head of the brush is too heavy as well. I should have just splurged on the MAC one.

              This is the ultimate powder brush fluffy for all over the face and flat for under the eye. Also so beautiful to look at. This brush sits pretty on my vanity and I use it everyday.

                I used this brush after I'm done baking just so I can brush off the excess powder and it works great! It takes off just the right amount of powder!

                      Hi Steph,

                      This is actually my *favorite* brush for bronzer application! One of the things you want in a bronzer brush is one that has bristles that will lightly disperse the product across a bigger surface area, rather than denser bristles that will concentrate the product right where you place it.

                      The bristles on this brush (which are so unbelievably soft, btw) are perfect for getting that sun-kissed look that a bronzer will give you.

                      Hope that helps!

                  • Q:

                    Is this brush good for loose powder? I use it with the Laura Mercier loose powder and I feel it doesn't pick it up alot. Is it made for that purpose? I feel I don't have any product on my face. Would you recommend any other Real Technique brush?

                      A:

                      The Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush is designed to provide flawless application of both pressed or loose powders. Individually tapered, synthetic tips allow for advanced product pickup and a buildable, pristine finish. This brush works best to achieve light to medium coverage.

                  • Q:

                    Is there any difference between this brush and the 103 powder brush that was part of the 3 piece set besides the angle?

                      A:

                      The angle of the bristles was the main difference between these two brushes, but the 103 Powder Brush was also designed to have a slightly larger head and more bristles that the 100 Arched Powder. The size of the brush head plus the angle enabled a bit more contouring around the face, whereas the 100 Arched Powder's slightly smaller head and broader cut is perfect for blending!
