        I use this product for my eyeshadow and it applies nicely for the crease and lid, but it doesn't work very well for the lower lash shadowing.

        Comments about Real Techniques Bold Metals 203 Tapered Shadow Brush:

        Got to try because it was on sale and I've been wanting to try this for a while. Personally I feel it's gotten too much hype because the quality of the bristles is rough on your skin. If you have sensitive skin I suggest you just go for a higher brand like it cosmetic brushes than these specially if you're going to pay the price that you do.

          I love this brush!!! These are the "luxury" brushes that Real Techniques created and they are amazing. I have tried a million different eyeshadow brushes and this one has definitely been my favorite. It is affordable and high quality. It is also very easy to clean.

            Comments about Real Techniques Bold Metals 203 Tapered Shadow Brush:

            This is a FABULOUS brush for a specific purpose. It is perfect, and I mean perfect, for contouring the outer-v and blending into the crease for a soft, diffused look. It you want an intensely contoured and pigmented outer-v, use a denser brush to lay down color and use this for blending. But if you need an everyday outer-v/crease brush to lay down and then blend out darker pigments from the outer-v into the crease, without any patchiness, this is your brush. In that sense, it does double duty, cause it's perfect for darkening that area and sheering out the color at the same time. And it does it fast and easy. It can build color in that area as well. I've been looking for a brush like this a long time. It's just dense enough to lay down pigmented shadows and fluffy enough to blend them so there are no harsh lines. I use it every day and I recently bought a backup. I haven't found a brush that does this job as well as this one and i've tried a lot.

            One thing I'll say is this is perfect for more pigmented shadows. If you're using sheer pigments, it won't do the job described above as well. You'll need something denser to pick up more color and then use this to blend.

                  I've been looking for a decent blending brush, but I didn't want to splurge. The Bold Metals collection, is stunning, but pricier that the standard line. Even so, this brush was cheaper than most of the other options. It's amazingly soft and blends well.
