      Comments about Real Techniques Bold Metals 203 Tapered Shadow Brush:

      Bought this as a piece to add to my growing collection of silver brushes. I still use it because it's nice and heavy (the weight makes it feel luxuirous) however it does not FEEL luxurious. I was surprised how many reviews said this brush was soft and even a question answered by an informed professional said it would be great for sensitive eyes. This brush causes a lot of fall-out in my opinion as well and I've always tapped off extra product. It's a pretty brush but I will not be buying any others from this collection. The original Real Techniques line is the way to go.

      I've been looking for a good blending brush and low and behold...THIS! this is so great to blend out the colors in my crease and make it look all smooth. the brush is super soft and lightweight and I love how it will never roll off your counter because it's handles shape. I keep it in the packaging when not in use to keep the bristles nice and since it's white it is easy to see how dirty your brush gets with the colors. no shedding of the bristles either. (sb: haven't washed it yet)

                  This brush drew me in with is cool design and reasonable price, and it does not disappoint! It is nice and fluffy and soft. It is very easy to use for shadows in the crease to create a transition or to darken it using more detail.
