        Comments about Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush:

        I love this brush. It is soft and puts on my powder evenly. Cheap brushes tend to shed easily and I end up spending more time cleaning the bristles off of my face. I did not want to pay $30 - $40 for a brush. This brush works as good as the $40 brushes.

          Let me start by saying this is a very beautiful brush! It definitely stands out in my collection of brushes. I have used many different brands of brushes and this one is one of the better ones. It is not as soft as Eco Tools or Too Faced but it is still very soft and no shedding of bristles like some other brands. I use this for powder and "dusting off" extra powder. Great price point for the good quality of this brush!

            Comments about Real Techniques Bold Metals 100 Arched Powder Brush:

            I initially had no intentions of buying anything from this line given the price. I thought to myself, why would I spend so much on a drugstore brush when there are high end brushes for just a little more? This brush is THE most high quality I have ever seen and I am in love. So so so soft I can hardly stop touching it.

            Another thing I love about this is that it picks up product well but it doesn't hold onto it like others do. This makes it so easy to use all over my face to set my foundation, then tap tap, go into my bronzer and bronze, tap tap, blush.

              This was used on a demo with me and happened to be on sale so I went for it! Feels so nice when applying powder! I like that it is large as, for me, it makes my makeup look more natural in the end. It is a little more than other brushes but take the plunge, you won't regret it!

                      Hi there -

                      YES! This brush is AMAZING for blush, but is best if you want more of a natural rosy hue, as opposed to directed blush (like draping, or to accentuate a contour). I love this brush so much for both blushes and powders!

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Tricia,

                      The Bold Metals Powder Brush is made with our highest quality synthetic bristle, and is our softest brush we make. The brush head is slightly larger from left to right, which is perfect for a sweeping motion and targeting certain areas. The Original Collection Powder brush is amazing too - it's bristles are synthetic, but it's head shape is slightly rounder, which is perfect for all over coverage (less targeted).

                      Thanks!

                      A:

                      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?

                  • 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!
